​Mammal

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the album Apollo 18 (1992).

Glass of milk standing in between extinction,
And the cold and explosive radiating growth.
So the warm blood flows through the large four chambered heart,
Maintaining the very high metabolism rate they have.

Mammal, Mammal
Their names are called they raise a paw,
The bat, the cat,
Dolphin and dog,
Koala bear and hog.

One of us might lose his hair,
But you're reminded that it once was there.
From the embryonic whale, to the monkey with no tail.
So the warm blood flows with the red blood cells,
Lacking nuclei, through the large four chambered heart.
Maintaining the very high metabolism rate they have,

Mammal, Mammal
Their names are called they raise a paw
The bat, the cat,
Dolphin and dog,
Koala bear and hog.

Placental, the sister of her brother marsupial
And their cousin called Monotreme dead uncle Allotheria

Mammal, Mammal
Their names are called they raise a paw
The bat, the cat,
Dolphin and dog,
Koala bear and hog,
The fox, the ox,
Giraffe, and shrew,
Echidna, caribou.
