Lyrics

[Argh!]
[Argh!]

He's gone that-a-way
He's went this-a-way
He's up a tree I think!
Oh Petey, Oh Petey...
Where are you?
Please come back
Oh Petey, Oh Petey...
You're like a son to us
We miss you, We miss you
If I get near him, you can bet I won't miss him with this!

I'll cook you cake and gingerbread,
Bring you tea in bed on a tray
We'll slave while you go fishing
You'll get permission to run and play
These tears oughta show you I care
Come back, by cracky we'll share
The happiest home in these hills...
In these hills!

[Go find him!]

Gonna snag him, gag him, drag him through town
Put his head in the river, let the pup drown
Trap him, strap him, wrap him in a sack. Yeah!
Tie him screaming to a railroad track

We'll have you sing in chapel
You'll be the apple of Momma's eye
I'll tend to all your sowing and do your mowing
So just rely on me
Dang, we know you're out there
It's late, we're waiting to share
The happiest home in these hills...
In these hills!

Gonna paw him, claw him, saw him in half
When he cries out for mercy, we'll just laugh
Beat him, heat him, eat him for dessert. Yeah!
Roast him gently so the flames won't hurt

You'll swim and you'll go camping
You'll be a champ in your own backyard
Our love is overflowing, it keeps on growin'
You'll sleep good knowing you're home
In these hills

We're gonna string him from a tree
In these hills
We're gonna sting him like a bee
In these hills
We're gonna spill him on his head
In these hills
We're gonna fill him full of lead
In these hills

[Argh!]
[Argh!]

I'll cook you cake and gingerbread,
Bring you tea in bed on a tray
We'll slave while you go fishing
You'll get permission to run and play
These tears oughta show you I care
Come back, by cracky we'll share
The happiest home in these hills...
In these hills!

Gonna snag him, gag him, drag him through town
Put his head in the river, let the pup drown
Trap him, strap him, wrap him in a sack. Yeah!
Tie him screaming to a railroad track

We'll have you sing in chapel
You'll be the apple of Momma's eye
I'll tend to all your sowing and do your mowing
So just rely on me
Dang, we know you're out there
It's late, we're waiting to share
The happiest home in these hills...
In these hills!

Gonna paw him, claw him, saw him in half
When he cries out for mercy, we'll just laugh
Beat him, heat him, eat him for dessert. Yeah!
Roast him gently so the flames won't hurt

[Split out!]

You'll swim and you'll go camping
You'll be a champ in your own backyard
Our love is overflowing, it keeps on growin'
You'll sleep good knowing you're home
In these hills

We're gonna string him from a tree
In these hills
We're gonna sting him like a bee
In these hills
We're gonna spill him on his head
In these hills
We're gonna fill him full of lead
In these hills
