JOHN PRINE lyrics - John Prine

Spanish Pipedream (Blow Up Your TV)

Original and similar lyrics
She was a level-headed dancer on the road to alcohol And I was just a soldier on my way to Montreal Well she pressed her chest against me About the time the juke box broke Yeah, she gave me a peck on the back of the neck And these are the words she spoke [Chorus:] Blow up your TV throw away your paper Go to the country, build you a home Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches Try an find Jesus on your own Well, I sat there at the table and I acted real naive For I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve Well, she danced around the bar room and she did the hoochy-coo Yeah she sang her song all night long, tellin' me what to do [Chorus] Well, I was young and hungry and about to leave that place When just as I was leavin', well she looked me in the face I said "You must know the answer." "She said, "No but I'll give it a try." And to this very day we've been livin' our way And here is the reason why We blew up our TV threw away our paper Went to the country, built us a home Had a lot of children, fed 'em on peaches They all found Jesus on their own

Old Wyom

THE AVETT BROTHERS "Country Was"
Well I dreamed of how our life could be, oh yeah Lovin' and a kissin' 'neath an old oak tree, uh huh Well I'd be singing you a song that was twenty lines long And be catchin' sweet kisses you can blow way out to Wyom I'd work my day to come home to you, oh yeah You could do whatever you wanted to, uh huh With you big brown eyes and your curly brown hair I'm doin' the best I can do just to try to not stare My God your loveliness Got a feeling you maybe won't like the news, oh no Ya ain't going like it when you have to choose, oh no If you and me were born to never be apart I can feel it in my mind, I can feel it in my soul, in my heart Oh baby please come around Oh baby please come around Oh baby please come around Was that your man, he's you fiancee, oh yeah Another one ties the knot each and everyday, uh huh I've got to get up the nerve to pick up the phone It's you sweet mama, I'm a-goin' carry you back home Way out to Old Wyom I probably shoulda thought about lettin' you know, uh huh If I love you like I do I should've told you so, uh huh Well I think about you each and every day It's just my knees gettin' weak when I try to say Oh baby please be mine Oh baby please be mine Oh baby please be mine Got a feelin' I'm barkin' up an empty tree How could something so beautiful think about me? I put my tail between my legs and turn my back Try on my trusty ramblin' sack I'm off to Old Wyom I'm off to Old Wyom I'm off to Old Wyom

I said, LADY! Why wait for so much time to pass I've been WANTIN to tear up yo' old gray ass So I pulled out my dick It was so shiny it looked like it was painted The hoe took one look and damn near fainted I stuck it in the bitch and the bitch began to shout that, Oh Mr. Dolemite, take that motherfucker OUT! [Kane] Well you ain't sayin nothin slick to a can of oil I walked barefoot from New York to Dallas Won for Pimp of the Year at the Caesar's Palace Made a big snowstorm on the 4th of July And drunk the waters in the Atlantic Ocean til that shit was dry I was makin money before Washington was put on a bill And I kicked Jack's ass and took his hoe Jill I'm the one who broke the bull's back and made people say FUCK McDonald's and call ME the Big Mac [Dolemite] Why you long lanky motherfucker You ain't nothin but a sucker! I was born in a barrel of butcher knives Shot in the ass with two Colt .45's I've been slapped by a bear and bit by an eel I chew up railroad iron, and shit out steel!

It's A Great Day To Be A Guy

Cledus T. Judd "Cledus Envy"
I got my socks dryin in the microwave Hair on my back I don't plan to shave I got the house to myself while the wife's away I'll be rockin all night Yeah I think I'll drink me an ice cold brew Lounge in my boxers like I used to do There'll be no Ally McBeal on the tube No...I'll be watchin the fight Well it's a great day to be a guy Playin cards my buddies until sunrise You know I never thought that my neighbor would Be sunbathing topless Lord she sure looks good I caught a ten pound bass out on the lake Played 18 holes with my best friend Jake Best balls I hit was when I stepped on a rake (FORE) (oh God) Oh it wuddn't too bright (Gee whiz) Now I look in the fridge what do I see? Last night's pizza starin back at me Pepperoni and anchovies What a beautiful sight Well it's a great day to be a guy Buck naked in my lawn chair swattin at flies Got some hot dogs on the charcoal grill Don't want to burn my wieners but I probably will That fried baloney And cheese macaroni Tasted good this afternoon But now I'm passin Some serious gas an I might have to leave the room P UUUUUUUUUUUUU Well I might go get me a new hairdo Spend a couple hours at a tanning booth Might even get me a gold front tooth (muffled as if a patient in a dentist chair) Oh yeah yeah And it's a great day to be a guy But when my wife gets home she's gonna tan my hide I'll be hung over but a-lookin good From a week of reliving my bachelorhood It's a great day to be a guy But another week of this and I'll probably die I Tend to party harder than I should When my wifes not here to make me be good Yay whooo

Rattlesnake Smile

CHRISTIAN KANE
It's been a long time Since I wore this rattlesnake smile And a lotta my friends haven't seen it in quite a while I feel my eyes rollin' deep inside my head And there's a feeling of misconception in the air Yeah, I'm startin' to see Yeah, I do believe I used to have a soft southern glowing face I used to lead my heartaches away on the chase When you get stung with the heart of a little child Well, that's how you get that rattlesnake smile You better keep your distance In this tangled shape I'm in Now no one had better touch me right now In this cold-blooded thick skin Oh I said you better run real fast When you hear that rattlin' sound Well, you better run real fast, man, Or this one's gonna knock you down I sit alone and try to shed this skin that I live in Trying to clear my vision once again Hah, well, I ain't no good to no one no how, not right now 'Cause I forgot to run myself and I got run down Do I look like something you can put in a fuckin' cage?! Come over here and gimme a kiss Yeah, I'm startin' to see Yeah, I do believe Better keep your distance From this tangled shape i'm in Now no one had better touch me right now In this cold-blooded thick skin Better, well, well Now I said you better run real fast When you hear that rattlin' sound Oh I said you better run real fast Or this one's gonna knock you down And I sit alone in the desert rain With my tail in the air Ohhhhhhh

Bra

Dismemberment Plan "Dismemberment Plan is Terrified"
So, goin' down the Amazon in a red brick boat, uh. Lookin' for some secret treasureâ€'hot with malaria And I've got that map upside-down Well, north, south, east, west, “X” still marks that spot And I'm so tired; and if I fell asleep, I might not ever wake up Oh, yeah. (Various “ooo”s and “oh”s) So, goin' down the Amazon in a light pink push-up bra, yeah You won't believe what I just saw: A full amazing time, and I've got that map upside-down Well, north, south, east, west, “X” still marks that spot And I feel like Young MC; and if I fell asleep, I might not ever wake up Oh, god. (Various “ooo”s and “oh”s) A! E! I! O! U! And sometimes Y. (Yeah! Woo! Yeah!) A! E! I! O! U! And sometimes Y. (Yeah! Woo! Yeah!) Why? Because people like you! (Don't like you.) So, goin' down the Amazon in a light green '57 Chevy, uh. Well, you think that's, um, kind of heavy? You should read my poetry And I've been known to read it out loud (Various “ooo”s and “oh”s)
