I Lost My Deer

I lost my deer

He just disappeared

I could sense his fear

Now he’s in the clear

He was standing right there

Vanished in thin air

I can see why he’s scared

He would have died there

 

Now I’m singing this sad old song

Cause the only deer I’ve seen is gone

Was loading up my gun now it’s too late

If only I didn’t hesitate

Took my eye off the prize just for a minute

Don’t you know you gotta shoot it before you skin it

Ain’t no one else to blame out here but me

My deer is lost, he’s been set free

(But not in a good way)

 

His pointy ears

And his big white rear

Were really quite near

I hope he’ll reappear

It don’t seem fair

He just gave me a stare

Now he’s out there somewhere

But I don’t know where

 

Now I’m singing this sad old song

Cause the only deer I’ve seen is gone

Was loading up my gun now it’s too late

If only I didn’t hesitate

Took my eye off the prize just for a minute

Don’t you know you gotta shoot it before you skin it

Ain’t no one else to blame out here but me

My deer is lost, he’s been set free

(But not in a good way)

 

Well I shoulda pulled the trigger

They don’t get much bigger

I’m not sure what I was thinkin'

He must’a ran away while I was blinkin'

 

If I don’t shed a tear

I’d be insincere

I must persevere

I’ve been waiting all year

 

Now I’m singing this sad old song

Cause the only deer I’ve seen is gone

Was loading up my gun now it’s too late

If only I didn’t hesitate

Took my eye off the prize just for a minute

Don’t you know you gotta shoot it before you skin it

Ain’t no one else to blame out here but me

My deer is lost, he’s been set free

(But not in a good way)
