Nina Hagen
Don't kill the animals

Are you ready to rescue the animals tonight?
Don't kill the animals - the animals are free

We all want to see through life's mystery
The quest for knowledge is a natural activity
But science be careful - science be kind
You can't go on pretending to be blind
Animal testing is a dangerous game
All systems are different - we're not the same

Hey hey doctor - reincarnation
Would you like to come back as a laboratory rat?

Don't kill the animals - the animals are free

Love and peace and life
What you're gonna do with the butcher's knife?
Life is for living - the animals agree
If they were meant to be eaten
They'd be growing on trees
Abuse yourself of your own free will
Live dangerously and make yourself ill
Get hurt - get high - get in distress
But don't drag the animals into this mess

Don't kill the animals - the animals are free

The pressure is on - make your decision
Be vegetarian - be anti-vivisection

Don't kill the animals - the animals are free
