That is on his first solo-album, "Cheating at Solitaire," a really great album! :cool:

Ain't  You Been a Cowboy for Too Long?
by The Ex-Husbands

All those places in the hills you used to hide out 
are disappearing faster than a summer sqwall
and your saddle and you boots are worn and dried out 
but somehow you still ride your pony tall 

You can rope, ride and brand 
don't take your hat off for no man 
Don't you have a need to have a home? 
You gotta silver-plated six-gun 
if God help you, you should need one 
Ain't you been a cowboy for too long? 

All those women that you've loved have settled down 
and married men with steady jobs in town 
They don't want no cowboys coming 'round

Like the coyote and the (?)
you're forced to beg or driven out
Don't them fences make it hard to roam?
Like everything that's wild and free
you're loved and feared and not let be
Ain't you been a cowboy for too long?

Your compadres now, all are dead or dyin'
woven in the cloth of history
Somehow my friend you managed to keep ridin'
I don't guess it's how it used to be
You can rope, ride and brand
don't take your hat off for no man
Don't you have a need to have a home?

You've gotta a silver-plated six-gun
If God help you, you should need one
Ain't you been a cowboy for too long?

(chorus)

Sorry, I don't know what he says on all the lyrics.  The Ex-Husbands are a kick-ass honky-tonk country band outta NYC! :cool:

psychobilly eh? c'mon people The Cramps. their old stuff is great, not so true with the new. lux interior is one bad ass singer.

The Cramps
Tv Set

Oh baby I see you on my TV set
Yeah baby I see you on my TV set
I cut your head off and put it in my TV set
I use your eyeballs for dials on my TV set
I watch TV
I watch TV
Since I put you in my TV set

Oh baby I hear you on my radio
Yeah baby I hear you on my radio
You know I flip flip flip for my radio
You're going drip drip drip on my radio
AM radio
PM radio
Since I tuned you inside my radio... Like this!

Oh baby I see you in my Frigidaire
Yeah baby I see you in my Frigidaire
Behind the mayonnaise, way in the back
I'm gonna see you tonight for a midnight snack
But though it's cold
You won't get old
'Cause you're well preserved in my Frigidaire
Yahhhhhhh....

Oh baby look so good in my crib at night
Yeah baby look so good in my crib at night
I could give you a million hugs
You look so good all covered up in bugs
Oh, I missed some there
Under your chair
But that's all right, I'll sweep you under the rug... ah ha ha!

Oh baby I see you on my TV set
Yeah baby I see you on my TV set
I cut your head off and put it in my TV set
I use your eyeballs for dials on my TV set
I watch TV
I watch TV
Since I seen you I've been so upset


--------------------
I wish I was little bit taller,
I wish I was a baller,
I wish I had a girl who looked good
I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
and a six four Impala - Skeelo

...but not quite as great as:

BIKINI GIRLS WITH MACHINE GUNS (Cramps)

i been a drag racer on LSD,
and i rode bare-assed on top of the shpinx,
i even had a gorilla on the slopes of kismet,
and man, that was fun for a while you bet but...

bikini girls with machine guns,
bikini girls with machine guns,
that stuff will kill ya, it's loaded with fun,
bikini girls with machine guns

well i savored many foriegn kinds of delicacies,
intoxicated til i can't tell what the hell i could see,
had all the violence and liquor within close reach,
but all bars, pills and threeways lead me back to the beach and...

bikini girls with machine guns,
bikini girls with machine guns,
that stuff will kill ya, it's loaded with fun,
bikini girls with machine guns

now they say that virtue is it's own reward,
but when that surf comes in i'm gunna get my board,
got my own ideas about the righteous kick,
you can keep the rewards,
i'd just as soon stay sick...

bah...I've been searching for hours for some Country Teasers lyrics for this thread all to no avail. Woulda been easier to sit down and figure some out by ear. Now it's three in the AM and I are fugged. So onto another intellectual dissertation from the Cramps (but check out some Country Teasers anyway if you get the chance):

Let's Get F*cked Up

Let's get fucked up. Let's get fucked up.
Let's do some stuff. And get fucked up.
Tomorrow we'll feel like we was hit by a truck.
Let's get fucked up.

Goin' to a cockfight. Burn with, burn.
All my stuff in shock might. Never ever return.
Goin' to the brink of Oblivion.
Gonna need a shrink to get again.
Let's get fucked up...

Gonna get lowdown.Gonna get keyed up.
Gonna go to town and get beat up.
Gonna get way out. Gonna hit flameout.
When my head caves in. Slip on nocturnal shades.
Go down to amateur night. Do some purple haze.
Probably lose some fight.
Get cool and casual. Get really sent.
Dig some cruel and unusual punishment.
Let's get fucked up...

The Cramps! They were cool! :cool:

I had almost forgotten all about them! They're still on vinyl in storage somewhere, as I never got around to getting CD versions of their stuff... :frown:

/me goes to find some Cramps stuff on-line... :grin:
