Who let the shrews out?! 
    Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! 
Who let the shrews out?! 
    Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! 
Who let the shrews out?! 
    Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! 
Who let the shrews out?! 
    Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! Squeak! 

(spoken)
A respected gardener lives near the party tree.
His name is known through the Shire, he's Gaffer Gamgee.
He lives a happy life, just one problem has he
Shrews running through his garden, and they are fast, whee!


(Sung)
One sunny day he found the solution
Large shrew traps that he equipped with cheese
That's his idea against shrew pollution
Dispensed them under the bushes and trees

Who let the shrews out?! ...

When a shrew came for the cheese
You heared a squeek and snap
The happy days for shrews were over
All were caught in Gaffer's traps

Every day he went checking traps then
Put the caught shrews into a large cage
One day coming home the cage door was open
Shrews running around, and he roared in rage:

Who let the shrews out?! ...

Shrews running everywhere, he could not believe it
Why were they running wild, and who was to blame for this?
Shrews in his pantry eating all his storage
Bacon and pies were gone, and sausages almost done

Through the bed, on the beautiful couch
On the table, and also there under the chairs
Shrews where free, everywhere
They were hunting themselves through the flowery pots
On the boards, in the bowls
And even up high on the mantlepiece
In his clothes, through his books
Angry he ranted and screamed and he shrieked:

Who let the shrews out?! ...

Some information about the artist
Miss Akelay was one of the first to move into Bramblebury and the longest-staying resident who always kept paying her upkeep! She is very famous for her catfish cakes and winner of the pie-baking competition of 2012.
Miss Akelay got the idea for this song when someone commented on the squeaky sound of the pibgorn. It was first performed by the Bramblebury-band-with-no-fixed-name at the base of a huge shrew statue in the garden of Miss Daysi at her burrow-warming party.
