The narrator in this song talks to somebody who's heartbroken after going through a painful breakup. The theme is either a strong form of platonic love for a friend/family member/stranger, or a song about friendzone: letting the other person know that you're here for them and wanting to cherish them without giving away the passionate feelings involved in the process.
Pity the poor cow, the pig, the chicken, the lobster, born with the curse of being delicious. This comic take on the sad reality of predation makes the point that even the human being can make a sumptuous meal for the right predator.
