"Meat Cleaver" is the sixth song off of Every Ape and His Brother's third album The Chicken of the Opera. The villain protagonist from "The Only Resort" returns to the shed where it all started. Only this time, he's interested in killing ducks as opposed to chickens. This song is a parody of "Hash Pipe" by Weezer.

HistoryEdit

The idea for this parody existed almost immediately after "Hash Pipe" hit airwaves. However, it was stalled in writing for ten years while other parodies were thought up. "The Only Resort" was released first, as it was felt that butchering and processing of chickens was a topic more familiar to a general audience as opposed to the similar processes with duck harvesting. By February 24th of 2011, this song parody was completed at 9:30 PM EST. It was immediately submitted to AmIRight.

LyricsEdit

* * *The following is a list of lyrics to a song. * * *
"Meat Cleaver"

Verse oneEdit

The ducks / are so tasty;/
And they / hide in the shed!/

I will / cut them up / I will not; /
Rest till they're dead!/

The autumn / is coming;/
And it's / time to harvest!/

And their / drumsticks are / certain;/
To pass / my taste test!/

First chorusEdit

Oh! / They're quacking at me!/
Oh! / They're quacking at me!/
(Oh...) / They're running from me!/

(Oh...) / They've got their feathers!/
(Oh...) / Got butchering fever!/

[Instrumental Break]

Verse twoEdit

I love / the Muscovies;/
They taste / the best, / you know!/

They huff / rather than quack;/
Thought you / wanted to know!/

The nailed log is ready;/
Now the birdie go chop!/

And into the bucket/
Bought at the concrete shop!/

Second chorusEdit

Oh! / They're quacking at me!/
Oh! / They're quacking at me!/
(Oh...) / They're running from me!/

(Oh...) / They've got their feathers!/
(Oh...) / Got butchering fever!/

(Oh...) / They try escaping!/
Brought a meat cleaver!/

[Instrument Break]

Final chorusEdit

Oh! / They're quacking at me!/
Oh! / They're quacking at me!/
(Oh...) / They're running from me!/

(Oh...) / They've got their feathers!/
(Oh...) / Got butchering fever! /

(Oh...) / They try escaping! /
Brought a meat cleaver! /

(Ugh!)
(Got a meat cleaver!/)

[Instrument Break]

Brought a meat cleaver!/
