Who's that short man what does he do?
He killed that monkey with his shoe!
Why that monkey?
Why his boot?
Cos he had a belly full of loot!

The monkey needs his damn revenge!
That poor creature we'll avenge!

Midget Saw, a deadly fate
Chopped up limbs become shark bait
Midget Saw, the pirate's code
It says that both your legs must go
Chopped to pieces
Ripped to shreds
You're gonna wish that you were dead!

Grab him by his manky hair
And strap him to that table there
This pirate's not gonna walk again
He's in for a world of nasty pain!

Slap that midget with an oar
Remove his legs, with a saw!

Midget Saw, a deadly fate
Chopped up limbs become shark bait
Midget Saw, the pirate's code
It says that both your legs must go
Chopped to pieces
Ripped to shreds
You're gonna wish that you were dead!

    It's about mutilating a little person with a saw because he killed a monkey out of greed.

    A good song for children.

    A dude killed a monkey with his shoe because he ate some treasure, so the pirates chopped his legs off with a saw so he became as tall as a midget, and they call the saw a midget saw.

    The true meaning is that monkeys are awesome and everyone who kills a single monkey will be chopped and shredded. :)
