I am the Ass

I am the ass, clop clop
Big dumb teeth and long dumb ears
I am the ass, clop clop
And I don’t cry no tears

I am the ass, clop clop
I snort and kick and bray
I am the ass, clop clop
You curse me every day

I am the ass, clop clop
I’m unfit for any king
I am the ass, clop clop
But the king has chosen me

I am the ass, clop clop
Sinners sing a victor’s psalm
I am the ass, clop clop
On this road of cloaks and palms

I am the ass, clop clop
The meanest and unwisest
I am the ass, clop clop
Hosanna in the highest
