This is the famous story of Balaam and his talking donkey in Numbers 22. Balaam was a sorcerer, and it's interesting to note that he didn't even seem surprised when his donkey spoke. He was more shocked at sight of the Angel of the LORD with the drawn sword who appeared in front of them both soon after.
I got the idea for this song while I was on the phone with Karl one day. I was thinking about AC/DC's song "Moneytalks" and said, "We could do 'Donkeytalk.'" And then the idea for "Donkey Talked With Him" popped into my head. Eureka!
Since the subject of this song was a donkey, we couldn't resist adding an additional spoofed snippet of our favorite donkey-oriented Rolling Stones song, "Beast of Burden," in the middle.
