Came from a conversation with my son: Dad, are mammoths bigger than elephants? Yes. Well, they're not now, they're all dead, but they were. Humans and mammoths lived together. Yep, that's why they're all dead. Why? Because we killed them. Why? For food. But we had sheep!

Lyrics Print

Why'd we kill all the mammoths
When we could've eaten sheep
Yeah it's a lot more in one shot
But we lost a lot more people
Trampled by a mammoth
Or gorged by its tusks
Why'd we kill all the mammoths
Oh, because people suck

I didn't write this song
To complain about overkilling
There's a lot of things that I'd take out
For little more than a shilling
I just wanted to point out
That people can be dumb (DUH)
We obliterated mammoths
And I'm asking how come?

Why'd we kill all the mammoths
When we could've eaten sheep
Yeah it's a lot more in one shot
But we lost a lot more people
Trampled by a mammoth
Or gorged by its tusks
Why'd we kill all the mammoths
Oh, because people suck

How many mammoths are alive today
Well it's zero, on the button
And it was pointed out today
That we could've been eating mutton
Sure, one mammoth is a lot of food
But what sheep has bad intentions?
Mammoths trampled many men
I think we killed them out of vengeance

Why'd we kill all the mammoths
When we could've eaten sheep
Yeah it's a lot more in one shot
But we lost a lot more people
Trampled by a mammoth
Or gorged by its tusks
Why'd we kill all the mammoths
Oh, because people suck

Why'd we kill all the mammoths
When we could've eaten sheep
Yeah it's a lot more in one shot
But we lost a lot more people
Trampled by a mammoth
Or gorged by its tusks
Why'd we kill all the mammoths
Oh, because people suck
