Lyrics: This song and the following instrumental (Ant Hill Anthem) represent a reunion of David’s high school group, the Shady Desert Minstrels. We always had a blast singing and playing music together, and we still do!
I wanna llama - yes I do, yeah
I wanna llama for my very own.
I wanna llama - you know it’s true - oo - oo
I’m gonna give it a happy home.
(Waa-ooh) I’ll take him all around
(Waa-ooh) We’ll be the talk of the whole darn town
Ooh-wee yeah yeah sha sha
I wanna llama.
Well, I ain’t puttin’ down llamas
So please don’t get me wrong
A llama could make me happy,
That’s why I sing this song.
A llama could be your best friend;
Keep you warm at night.
But you wake up in the morning,
and your sheets aren’t exactly white!
Well, a llama is never boring
There’s a million things to do.
You could take him window shopping
At the Detroit Zoo.
You could take him out riding,
You could take your llama fishing, too.
Well, they’re not much for conversation,
but they smell a whole lot better than a gnu!
(Final Chorus - 2nd half:)
Alpaca lunch for two
With a can of lima beans from Lima, Peru.
Big orange black-striped school bus;
I wanna platypus!
