  • Arf arf arf arf arf, said the puppy to the snake
    I've got a real big mirror of a smile and I hold it to the face
    Hard boot sound to the ground, so I see what shakes

    And I'll kill them with kindness
    I'll kill them with kindness
    Ain't no doormouse here

    It doesn't mean you have to bow, I'll say your highness
    Just kill them with kindness
    If you wanna beat the machine, keep your teeth clean

    And kill them with kindness
    Kill them with kindness
    Kill them with kindness
    (Kill them with kindness)
    K-k-k-k-k-k-k-k-kill them with kindness


    I guess you cannot tell from my tone
    I mean ba-ba-business and I ain't on my own
    I'm guessing it is hard for you to see
    That, that, that, that empathy will cu down your throne
    Don't you mind people grinning in your face
    Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, set the champ to the chase

    'Cause we'll kill them with kindness
    (Kill them with kindness)

    Your hum-drum, sarky slow lines don't bother me none
    "Wa-wa-wa, woo-woo-woo" said the flower to the sun
    Our love-locked congregation gift will get you slapped
    "Na na na na na gnaw", said the beaver to the dam

    'Cause we're killing with kindness
    Killing with kindness
    We'll kill them with kindness
    Kill them with kindness

    Ay ya ya ya ya ya ya ya there ain't no doormouse here
