Maltloaf : The Duckling Song

Suggested by Bryan Burford saying: I'm not sure what you think ducklings do, but it's not that.
and Rob Buckley saying: The lesser known Meatloaf song. During a discussion about television in which the word imprinting was used.

THE DUCKLING SONG


They may float in ponds, dress an Easter hat, 
I don't know what you think they do, but they don't do that.  
'Cos ducklings a la orange, isn't as tasty as it appears, 
You can get the taste on your tongue at night
Though you've been vegan now for years, 
And all you can see by the dashboard light 
Is little balls of yellow tears, 
Because ducking run over in the orange of night isn't tasty as it appears.
Oh it was long ago that I had my fill, 
And it seems like just my luck,
That no no matter how tender and plump it may be
I can't now face a duck, 
Because when I think of a duckling now, 
I know the bill is due, 
Cause if you'd done to them what I'm thinking of now
You couldn't face one too
They may look good on cards, they may quack a lot
They may be fuffy as a whole ball of yarn
But when a car rolls over their plot
They can't come back from grievous bodily harm.
I was younger then, I didn't have no fear
I'd seen too much street-pizza goin' to waste.
But the orange light of the headlights here
They just bring back the texture and taste. 
Oh it was long ago that I had my fill, 
And it seems like just my luck,
That no no matter how tender and plump it may be
I can't now face a duck, 
Because when I think of a duckling now, 
I know the bill is due, 
Cause if you'd done to them what I'm thinking of now
You couldn't face one too
