Brian Setzer Orchestra – Wolfgang’s Big Night Out lyrics

BSO - WolfgangsBigNightOutUSpromofront

Note: with the exception of the 2 songs here included, fully instrumental album

ONE MORE NIGHT WITH YOU
I don’t need no foreign car
Movie star
New guitar
A jukebox in a funky bar
And one more night with you

I don’t need no voodoo charm
Daddy’s farm
False alarm
Ain’t no thing can do me harm
As long as you are true

I don’t need no mojo hex
Bouncing cheeks
Another ex
Shuffle them up poker decks
I’ll go all in with you

I don’t need no pinky ring
Bad da bing
One more thing
Love a band that loves to swing
And blast it all night through

Let’s go, get us out of town
Double down
Lay around
All I need’s a rockin’ sound
And one more night with you

Papa don’t need no golden watch
Another chick
Another notch
Just pour me another Scotch
And one more night with you

I don’t need no inside track
Deck that’s stacked
Fade to black
I won’t miss I think I lack
As long as I got you

I just need my dog to fetch
Buck to stretch
Play some catch
I just need my big ol’ Gretsch
These little things will do

I don’t need no foreign car
Movie star
New guitar
A jukebox in a funky bar
And one more night with you

 

HONEY MAN
Is he busy
Busy is he
Is he busy
Busy is he
Go
Whoa

Honey honey, honey man
Honey honey, honey man
Faster, faster
Faster, faster
Faster, faster
Go

Is he busy
Busy is he
Is he busy
Busy is he
Go
Whoa

Sugar sugar, honey man
Sugar sugar, honey man
Faster, faster
Faster, faster
Faster, faster
Go

Bzzz, bzzz
Oh yes, the honey man is here
Sting, sting
Oh boy, the honey man is here

Is he busy
Busy is he
Is he busy
Busy is he
Go
Whoa

Honey honey, honey man
Honey honey, honey man
Faster, faster
Faster, faster
Faster, faster
Go

Brian Setzer – 13 lyrics

BRIAN SETZER - 13

DRUGS & ALCOHOL (BULLET HOLES)
How can you always put me down
When you’re never even there to hang around
When you do, you’re always to drunk to talk (hey, hey hey)
How comes you always hang around
With a methamphetamine whore drug hound
And never even listen to a word I say (hey, hey, hey)

Drugs and alcohol, bullet holes through the walls
What am I gonna do
I’m only 16 years old but I’ve been through
More than most anyone that I knew, that I knew

I’m always in a fight in my school
They want me to obey the golden rule
But the rules don’t apply to everyone (no, no, no)
And what can I do when the big boss man
Tells me that I have to understand
I can’t be proud to be who I am

Drugs and alcohol, bullet holes through the walls
What am I gonna do
I’m only 16 years old but I’ve been through
More than most anyone that I knew, that I knew

How can I afford to fail
When the only opinion is going to jail
Why should I even try
I’ve got a tattoo, says win or die
The invasion’s on, that’s no lie
I’m sure I won’t live to tell the tale

Drugs and alcohol, bullet holes through the walls
What am I gonna do
I’m only 16 years old but I’ve been through
More than most anyone that I knew

Drugs and alcohol, bullet holes through the walls
What am I gonna do
I’m only 16 years old but I’ve been through
More than most anyone that I knew

 

TAKE A CHANCE ON LOVE
I got a lucky rabbit’s foot
I’ve got a loaded pair of dice
I hang the horseshoe over my bed
Because my luck’s been cold as ice
I love to watch that roulette wheel
Spinnin’ round and round
I place a bet at five to one
When my baby comes to town

I’m gonna love you baby with all my might
I’m gonna make you feel all right
You’re gonna love me baby like you said you would
Honey, just like a young girl should

Baby, take a chance on love, on love
Baby, take a chance on love
You’re the only one I’m dreamin’ of
Baby, take a chance, baby’s in a trace
Baby, take a chance on love

My lucky thirteen black cat bones
And my lady luck tattoo
I got a hoodoo voodoo doll
And a photograph of you
I’m gonna cast a magic spell
A magic spell of love
And then I’ll put you in my trance
My magic trance of love

I’m gonna love you baby with all my might
I’m gonna make you feel all right
You’re gonna love me baby like you said you would
Honey, just like a young girl should

Baby, take a chance on love, on love
Baby, take a chance on love
You’re the only one I’m dreamin’ of
Baby, take a chance, baby’s in a trace
Baby, take a chance on love

I’m gonna take this step by step
I’m gonna take this seriously
I’m gonna take things one at a time
Because I love you obviously
But if you just wanna break my heart
Don’t be wasting my time
‘Cause with you from the very start
Our love was a felony crime

I’m gonna love you baby with all my might
I’m gonna make you feel all right
You’re gonna love me baby like you said you would
Honey, just like a young girl should

Baby, take a chance on love, on love
Baby, take a chance on love
You’re the only one I’m dreamin’ of
Baby, take a chance, baby take a chance
Baby, take a chance, baby’s in a trance
Baby, take a chance, baby take a chance
Baby, take a chace on love

 

BROKEN DOWN PIECE OF JUNK
I got a beat leather jacket
I got a broken down car
I’m gonna push it up to the hill
If I can make it that far

‘Cause everything I own is a broken down piece of junk
Oh, la, la, la – Oh, la, la, la

Got a broken down record player
I’ve got a bird that won’t sing
And the buzzin’ in my head goes ring, ring, ring

Everything I own is a broken down piece of junk
Oh, la, la, la – Oh, la, la, la

One man’s fortune, honey
Is another man’s worst bad luck
If I ever crawl outta this hole alive
I’m gonna spend every last buck, buck, buck

I ain’t got a job
Live in a cheap hotel
The door ain’t got a lock
But I say what the hell

Everything I own is a broken down piece of junk
Oh, la, la, la – Oh, la, la, la

Well, one man’s fortune, honey
Is another man’s worst bad luck
If I ever crawl outta this hole alive
I’m gonna spend every last buck, buck, buck

Now don’t misunderstand me
I got my moonshine mash
But If I made any money
It’d be gone in a flash

Everything I own is a broken down piece of junk
Oh, la, la, la – Oh, la, la, la
Everything I own is a broken down piece of junk
Oh, la, la, la – Oh, la, la, la
Everything I own is a broken down piece of junk

 

WE ARE THE MARAUDERS
We are the Marauders
We’ve come to steal your daughters
We like our booze and our rock n roll
We’ll break your heart and we’ll steal your soul

We don’t buy that two-bit rap
‘Cause American Idol is a bunch too crap
I didn’t buy this here guitar
To be a big television star

We are the Marauders
It’s nothing no one taught us
If you’re a Pennsylvania man
They’ll stick a shovel right in your hand

We’ve got this music in our soul
It’s nothing you can hear on the radio
If you don’t get it, it’s your tough luck
We don’t care about makin’ a buck
We’re the boys and we’re here to rock

We are the Marauders
We’ll never obey your orders
Right now they think you’re a fool
Next year they’ll be following you

Don’t buy the official line
That they don’t like this song of mine
If you don’t like it, the door ain’t locked
Buy me one more Rollin’ Rock
I said buy me one more Rollin’ Rock
Come on, buy me one more Rollin’ Rock

We are the Marauders
Life is one tall order
You gotta do what you wanna do
You gotta do what you’re born to do
But this whole life is way to short
If it feels right to you
Well, there’s the start

 

DON’T SAY YOU LOVE ME
Don’t say you love me
Then jump right out of bed
If I scream at the top of my lungs
It would only hurt my head
Because I know that you’re nowhere near
That’s the last thing that I need to hear, oh yeah

Don’t say you love me
But you need a little space
What good is that emotion
If I can’t look you in the face
Being made a fool is my biggest fear
That’s the last thing that I need to hear, oh yeah

Don’t write love letters
And start them out “Dear John”
Don’t tell me not to leave you
When I’m already gone
And if it’s true let me make it clear
That’s the last thing that I need to hear, oh yeah

Don’t promise that you’ll love me
Until the end of time
You say you’ll deny me
But you’re already mine
But it’s up to you so don’t shed a tear
Because you know damn well what I wanna hear

 

REALLY ROCKABILLY
Here they come in their official Levi’s
Hair slicked back, they’re really tough guys
Black t-shirt and bad attitude
Better not to step on their blue suede shoes
Livin’ in a time that’s long since gone
It’s not quite right, there’s something wrong
Look, there goes another Betty Page
Get with it, it’s all the rage

He’s a-really, a-really, a-really rockabilly
A-really, a-really, a-really rockabilly
He pissed in his pants
He’s too drunk to care
He’s wearin’ 1956 underwear

There’s neo-rockabilly
There’s psycho-rockabilly
There’s Starbucks-Orange County-Rockabilly
There’s Euro ja-ja wir machen rockin’ rockabilly
There’s western-swing-tradicional-blues-influenced-rockabilly
There’s Australian-shrimp on the Barbie
Carry on your surfborad
Too serious to buy your rolled-up Levi’s rockabilly
There’s rock-a-Johnny, rock-a-Sally, rock-a-hillbilly
It’s all so stupid and it’s just plain silly

He’s a-really, a-really, a-really rockabilly
A-really, a-really, a-really rockabilly
He pissed in his pants
He’s too drunk to care
He’s wearin’ 1956 underwear

The man at the door, he’s a rockabilly guy
He said you can’t come in, your pompadour’s too high
Better grow them sideburns, get a tattoo on your neck
Drink Pabst Blue Ribbon, drive a rockabilly wreck
Has it come to this, I want a new job
Rockabilly retards and rockabilly slobs
It used to be fun just to play the guitar
Now I just want to turn real, real far

He’s a-really, a-really, a-really rockabilly
A-really, a-really, a-really rockabilly
He pissed in his pants
He’s too drunk to care
He’s wearin’ 1956 underwear

He’s a-really, a-really, a-really rockabilly
A-really, a-really, a-really rockabilly
He pissed in his pants
He’s too drunk to care
He’s wearin’ 1956 underwear

Thank you, thank you very much
Think I’ll get another tattoo on my neck

 

ROCKET CATHEDRALS
I’ve been a bad boy, you know the way
Became a bad boy and changed my name
My anxious dreams have found a clearer sky

I’ve been thinking about the state I’m in
And started sinking a bottle of gin
And rocket cathedrals pointing to the sky

I’m space-bound again
I need their money
And I can see the stars
It’s so funny
Until I’m Earth-bound again
I’ll miss you honey
And this rocket cathedral’s pointing to the sky

Some visit Lucifer
Some may be crucified
I’m going to Mars
Some talk to celuloid
Some talk to shiny cars
I’ll talk to shiny stars

I’ve been thinkin’ about all the ways
That a wise man spends all of his days
In a rocket cathedral pointing to the sky

Wish I was grounded and seen the last of my days
And not re-bounded down the Milky Way
And this rocket cathedral’s pointing to the sky

So I’m space-bound again
Who needs their money
And I can see the stars
I feel so funny
Until I’m Earth-bound again
I’ll miss you honey
And this rocket cathedral pointing to the sky

I’ll go to Lucifer
I may be crucified
I’m going to Mars
I’ll talk to celuloid
I’ll fly with shiny cars
Bye, bye stars

BAD BAD GIRL (IN A BAD BAD WORLD)
Well, I caught the last plane to Tokyo, Japan
I’m sittin’ next to a chick with a Japanese fan
Ohayo gozaimasu, konnichiwa
Sayonara, Konbanwa
She’s not the same, she’s not the same
She’s not the same, she’s not the same
She’s not the same

She’s a bad bad girl in a bad bad world
A bad bad girl in a bad bad world
It’s not her fault, she’s a bad bad girl
It’s so sad, it’s a sad sad world

She’s a bad bad girl in a bad bad world
A bad bad girl in a bad bad world
It’s not her fault, she’s a bad bad girl
She’s a bad bad, bad bad, bad bad, bad bad, bad bad girl

Well, Harajuku City, Harajuku City
I’m lookin’ in the mirror and it ain’t real pretty
Soitsu wo moto kure
Soitsu wo moto kure
What can we do
Do shitara ii, do shitara ii
What can we do, do shitara ii

She’s a bad bad girl in a bad bad world
A bad bad girl in a bad bad world
It’s not her fault, she’s a bad bad girl
It’s so sad, it’s a sad sad world

She’s a bad bad girl in a bad bad world
A bad bad girl in a bad bad world
It’s not her fault, she’s a bad bad girl
She’s a bad bad, bad bad, bad bad, bad bad, bad bad girl

Too many people walkin’ down the street
There’s too many people walkin’ down the street
In a world gone mad, you’re a bad bad girl
It’s so sad, it’s a bad bad world
What can we do, do shitara ii
What can we do, do shitara ii, what can we do

She’s a bad bad girl in a bad bad world
A bad bad girl in a bad bad world
It’s not her fault, she’s a bad bad girl
It’s so sad, it’s a sad sad world

She’s a bad bad girl in a bad bad world
A bad bad girl in a bad bad world
It’s not her fault, she’s a bad bad girl
She’s a bad bad, bad bad, bad bad, bad bad, bad bad girl

 

WHEN HEPCAT GETS THE BLUES
Well, it ain’t everyday that Hepcat gets the blues
Every once in a while, maybe just a week or two

Well, I don’t got nothing to worry about
The kids take off and momma screams and shouts
It ain’t everyday that Hepcat gets the blues
Every once in a while, not very often

Well, they say a man has to work from sun to sun
But a woman’s work it ain’t never ever done
If I work my knuckles right down to the bone
You better have that supper at the table at home
It ain’t everyday that Hepcat gets the blues

When Hepcat gets the blues
There’s nothing nobody can do
The wind starts blowin’ and the sky gets cloudy and gray
Ain’t nothing nobody can say
Get on your hands and knees and pray
It ain’t everyday that Hepcat gets the blues

Here we go
Go ahead Cat

When Hepcat gets the blues
There’s nothing nobody can do
The wind starts blowin’ and the sky gets cloudy and gray
Ain’t nothing nobody can say
Get on your hands and knees and pray
It ain’t everyday that Hepcat gets the blues

You better just hope that I don’t come lookin’ for you
‘Cause I just don’t know exactly what I’m bound to do

I’m gonna drink Jack Daniel’s right off the floor
Get a quart of beer and baby holler for more
No, it ain’t everyday that Hepcat gets…
It ain’t everyday that Hepcat gets…
Ain’t everyday that Hepcat gets the blues

 

BACK STREETS OF TOKYO
I’m gonna take a plane, baby here I go
I’m gonna walk the streets of Tokyo
The crowds of people and the neon lights
The rock and roll days and the rock and roll nights
There’s a discotheque with a flashing sign
There’s a sexy girl gonna show you a good time
Come on in, the show is about to begin
Come on, come on, come on

I’m on the back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo

I know a little place but it’s hard to find
Down the road that twists and the street that winds
Roppongi town down the alley way
The wine does flow and the band does play
So come on, come on, let the fun begin
There’s a night on the town, it’s a night to sin
I can take you down, come along with me
Come on, come on, come on

I’m on the back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo

So come on, come on, let the fun begin
There’s a night on the town, it’s a night to sin
I can take you down, come along with me
Come on, come on, come on

I’m on the back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo

Well, welcome to the land of the rising sun
And the sun don’t set til the party is down
Just be careful baby, don’t you press your luck
The back streets of Tokyo will eat you up
So come on, come on, let the fun begin
There’s a night on the town, it’s a night to sin
I can take you down, come along with me
Come on, come on, come on

I’m on the back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Tokyo
Back streets of Toyko

 

EVERYBODY’S UP TO SOMETHING
I saw a man on a TV show, he said:
“Don’t drink alcohol
Please, don’t smoke no cigarettes
Don’t drink no coffee at all”
Later on, I’m watchin’ the news
And the man from the TV show was stopped by the cops
And in his trunk was a suitcase full of… well, you know

Eveybody’s up to something
Everybody’s got something goin’ on
Nobody’s up to nothing
Everybody’s done somebody wrong
Eveybody’s up to something
Everybody’s got to sing their song
Nobody’s up to nothing
Come on everybody, sing along

Well, the preacher man is callin’ on you
To live a much better life
“Get to the church on time, say all your prayers
Don’t covet thy neighbour’s wife”
The preacher man was surprised to see
Disserssion in the ranks
When the feds moved in
It was soon found out he had a billion in the bank

Eveybody’s up to something
Everybody’s got something goin’ on
Nobody’s up to nothing
Everybody’s done somebody wrong
Eveybody’s up to something
Everybody’s got to sing their song
Nobody’s up to nothing
Come on everybody, sing along

Well, everybody’s got something to say
About practically everything
The can feed the poor, they can tax the rich
They can even make Ashlee sing
If I’m doin’ something that’s botherin’ you
Don’t be tellin’ it nationwide
‘Cause everybody in the whole wide world
Got a little bit of something to hide

Eveybody’s up to something
Everybody’s got something goin’ on
Nobody’s up to nothing
Everybody’s done somebody wrong
Eveybody’s up to something
Everybody’s got to sing their song
Nobody’s up to nothing
Come on everybody, sing along

Eveybody’s up to something
Everybody’s got something goin’ on
Nobody’s up to nothing
Everybody’s done somebody wrong
Eveybody’s up to something
Everybody’s got to sing their song
Nobody’s up to nothing
Come on everybody, sing along

 

ROCK YOUR WORLD (bonus track for Japan)
I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl
I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl

I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl
I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl

Well, don’t you ever use that tone of voice with me
Do you have to bring up that terrible memory
The night that you left was the worst night of my life
Couldn’t you understand all my trouble and strife

But I want you back, baby
Don’t you know that I do
If I have any problems
We can work it through
I’m a fool for you, baby
Don’t you know that I am
And you’ll never get the same from another man

I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl
I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl

I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl
I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl

Well, life ain’t the same without you by my side
When I see all my friends
I just wanna run and hide
When I run down the block
Pull over my car
I see you sittin’ down
At the end of the bar

I want you back, baby
Don’t you know that I do
If I have any problems
We can work it through
I’m a fool for you, baby
Don’t you know that I am
And you’ll never get the same from another man

I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl
I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl

I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl
I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl

All I ever wanted was to make it work out
All I ever wanted was to make it work out
All I ever wanted was to make it work out
All I ever wanted was to make it work out

Well, life is not the same without you by my side
When I see all my friends
I just wanna run and hide
Well, can’t you think of anybody but yourself
I pity the man that’s just another notch in your belt

I want you back, baby
Don’t you know that I do
If I have any problems
We can work it through
I’m a fool for you, baby
Don’t you know that I am
And you’ll never get the same from another man

I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl
I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl

I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl
I wanna rock your world
I wanna make you my girl

 

THE HENNEPIN AVENUE BRIDGE
Father Hennepin went down to Bennigan’s
To discuss the construction of the Hennepin Bridge
He had time to kill down by the flour mill
So he planned a picnic lunch on St Anthony Main

Now Father Hennepin he was notorious
And he liked a little drunk down at Nye’s Polanaise
His explorations were more than glorious
So they planned to build a bridge that would feature his name

Well, first Niagara and then St Anthony’s
Were discovered by the fella with the Hennepin name
But when the lock was filled on the lower falls
Eveyone was shoppin’ on the Nicollet Mall

And when the rope was cut on the Hennepin
Father Louis had a most unusual plan
He would take a dip in the Mississippi
He would dive from the centre and swim to the dam

When the time had come and he took the plunge
Everyone screamed: “My God, what has he done”
And though he tried to swim, the current carried him
Closer and closer to the brink of the falls

The people lined the banks of the Mississippi
To watch Father Hennepin go over the edge
The people there that day, they all swear they say
Father Hennepin was laughin’ as he fell to his death

WHITE CHRISTMAS
I’m dreamin’ of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
When the three stops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow, in the snow

I’m dreamin’, I’m dreamin’ of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may your Christmas be white

I’m dreamin’ of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may your Christmas be white

I’m dreamin’ of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
When the three stops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow, in the snow
Here I go, here I go

I’m dreamin’, I’m dreamin’ of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may your Christmas be white

Well, I’m dreamin’, I’m dreamin’ of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may your Christmas be white
Ah ha, white Christmas

 

LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW
Oh, the weather outside it’s frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

It doesn’t show signs of stopping
And I’ve brought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss goodnight
How’ll I hate going out in the storm
But if you’ll really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

The fire it slowly dying
And my dear, we’re still good-bying
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

The fire it slowly dying
And my dear, we’re still good-bying
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

 

ZAT YOU SANTA CLAUS
Gifts I’m preparin’ for some Christmas sharin’
But I pause because hangin’ my stockin’
I can hear a knockin’
Zat you, Santa Claus

Sure is dark out not the slighest spark out
Oh, my slackin’ jaws
Uh, who’s there, who is it
Who stoppin’ for a visit
Zat you, Santa Claus

Are you bringin’ a present for me
Something pleasantly pleasant for me
That’s just what I’ve been waitin’ for
Would you mind slippin’ it under the door

Four winds are howlin’ or could that be growlin’
My legs feel like straws
Oh my, my, me, mild kindly would you reply
Zat you, Santa Claus

Oh hangin’ my stockin’ I can hear a knockin’
Zat you, Santa Claus

I say hey there, who is it
Are you stoppin’ for a visit
Zat you, Santa Claus

Oh, there Santa you gave me a scare
Now stop teasin’ ‘cause I know that you’re there
We don’t believe in no goblins today
But I can’t explain why I’m shakin’ that way

Well I can see old Santa in the keyhole
I’ll give to the cause one peek and I’ll try there
Oh-oh there’s an eye there
Zat you, Santa Claus

 

HEY SANTA
Hey Santa, are you going to Atlanta
Can I hitch a ride with you, old man
Cause my gal lives in Dixieland

Santa don’t bring me any toys
Just my baby and a bottle of joy
Maybe just a taste for Uncle Roy
We all know Santa is a good ole boy
Cause you brought a bottle of Peppermint Schnapps
Cause the trumpet player is really tops
I got no time for holiday shops
Cause I got a band that’s really hot

Santa don’t bring me any toys
Just my baby and a bottle of joy
Maybe just a taste for Uncle Roy
We all know Santa is a good ole boy

Hey Santa, are you going to Atlanta
Can I hitch a ride with you, old man
Cause my gal lives in Dixieland

I don’t wanna leave my confy cuzy
My baby lips are hot and rosy
What’s my name
Now ain’t you, nosey
I’d like a little kiss now I supposee
Hot butter rum, hot butter rum
When you hear me holler now you better come
Seven come eleven, seven come eleven
Baby just died and gone to heaven

Hey Santa, are you going to Atlanta
Can I hitch a ride with you, old man
Cause my gal lives in Dixieland

Hey Santa, are you going to Atlanta
Can I hitch a ride with you, old man
Cause my gal lives in Dixieland

All the kiddies tucked inside their beds
Sugar plums dancin’ in their heads
The cats all purrin’ and the dogs all fed
With this ring I do thee wed
I don’t need nothin’ but this time around
Just hitch me a ride, I’m Atlanta bound
Baby is waitin’ at the lost and found
Waitin’ in a long white wedding gown

Hey Santa, are you going to Atlanta
Can I hitch a ride with you, old man
Cause my gal lives in Dixieland

Hey Santa, are you going to Atlanta
Can I hitch a ride with you, old man
Cause my gal lives in Dixieland

 

MY FAVOURITE THINGS

YOU’RE A MEAN ONE, MR GRINCH
You’re a mean one, Mr Grinch
You really are a heel
You’re as cuddy as a cactus
You’re slippery as an eel
Mr Grinch

You’re a bad bananna
With a greasy black peel

You’re a monster Mr Grich
Your heart’s an empty hole
Your brain is full of spiders
You’ve got garlic in your soul
Mr Grinch

I wound’t touch you with a thirty-nine and a half-foot pole

You’re a mean one, Mr Grinch
You have termites in your smile
You have all the tender seetness of a seasick crocodile
Mr Grinch
Given the choice between the two of you
I’d take the seasick crocodile
Thank you Mr Grinch

You’re a rotter, Mr Grinch
You’re the king of sinful sots
Your heart’s a dead tomato splot
With moldy purple spots
Mr Grinch

Your souls ia an apalling dump heap
Oerflowing with the most disgraceful
Assortmen of deplorable rubbish imaginable
Mangled up in tangled up knots
Mr Grinch

 

COOL YULE
From Coney Island to the Sunset Strip
Somebody’s gonna make a happy trip
Tonight, while the moon is bright

He’s gonna have a bag of crazy toys
To give the grownies of the girls and boys
So dig, Santa comes on big

He’ll come a-callin’ when the snow’s the most
When all you cats are sleepin’ warm as toast
And you gonna flip when Old Santa Nick
Takes a lick on the peppermint stick
He’ll come a-flyin’ down from outer space
And fill the stocking by the fire place
So, you’ll have a Yule that’s cool

From Coney Island to the Sunset Strip
Somebody’s gonna make a happy trip
Tonight, while the moon is bright

He’s gonna have a bag of crazy toys
To give the grownies of the girls and boys
So dig, Santa comes on big, come on

He’ll come a-callin’ when the snow’s the most
When all you cats are sleepin’ warm as toast
And you gonna flip when Old Santa Nick
Takes a lick on the peppermint stick

He’ll come a-flyin’ down from outer space
And fill the stocking by the fire place
So, you’ll have a Yule that’s cool

 

JINGLE BELL ROCK
Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bell swing and jingle bells ring
Snowin’ and blowin’ up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin’ and prancin’ in jingle bell square in the frosty air

What a bright time it’s the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin’ in a one horse sleigh

Giddy-up, jingle horse pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and mingle in a jinglin’ beat
That’s the jingle bell rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin’ and prancin’ in jingle bell square in the frosty air

What a bright time it’s the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin’ in a one horse sleigh

Giddy-up, jingle horse pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and mingle in a jinglin’ beat
That’s the jingle bell
That’s the jingle bell
That’s the jingle bell rock

 

SANTA DRIVES A HOT ROD
You know, when I was just a little boy
I was so happy that Santa made all those toys
Just himself and those little elves, all by themselves
And all those toys wound up on Macy’s shelves
And now, that all this time has passed
I just wonder how did Santa’s sleigh get around so fast

Well, Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)
Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)
It’s the only way he can rock and roll that all Christmas sleigh

Now no offense to Rudolph, Donner, Blitzen
You know and all the rest of those reindeer cats
But you know there ain’t no way that reindeer can pass no driver test, hahahaha
I do believe that Santa’s sleigh got a big black Chevrolet
If he’s gonna make it ‘round the world on Christmas Day

Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)
Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)
It’s the only way he can rock and roll that all Christmas sleigh

He’s got a stop in Tokyo and don’t forget Australia too
He’s got a drop off in Hawaii gonna sail the ocean blue
Gonna stop in California for a cocktail and some gas
By the time he gets to England he’s got no more time to lapse

Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)
Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)
It’s the only way he can rock and roll that all Christmas sleigh

Ok now, listen

OK now man, ain’t no ofense to Rudolph, Donner, Blitzen
And all the rest of those reindeer cats
But you know there ain’t no way that reindeer can pass no driver test, hahahaha
I do believe that Santa’s sleigh got a big black Chevrolet
If he’s gonna make it ‘round the world on Christmas Day

Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)
Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)
Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)
Santa’s got a hot rod (Santa’s got a hot rod)

Santa’s got a hot rod
That’s what I’m trying to say to all of you
Santa drives a hot rod
That rusty old sleigh just won’t do

 

WHAT ARE YOU DOING NEW YEAR’S EVE
Maybe it’s much, much too early in the game
You know, I though I’d ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year’s, New Year’s Eve

Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it’s exactly twelve o’clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year
This New Year’s, this New Year’s, this New Year’s Eve

Maybe I’m crazy to suppose
I could ever be the one you chose, you chose
Out of a thousand invitations you recived

Oh, but in case, just in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advice
What are you doing New Year’s, New Year’s Eve

Oh, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advice
What are you doing New Year’s
This New Year’s Eve
Tell me what are you doing
What are you doing this New Year’s Eve

 

CHRISTMAS ISLAND (bonus track for Japan)
Aloha-hey, Aloha-hey, Aloha-oha-hey

How’d you like to spend Chrismas on Christmas Island
How’d you like to spend the holiday away across the sea
How’d you like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island
How’d you like to hang a stocking on a great big coconut tree

How’d you like to stay up late like the islanders do
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island
You will never stray for everyday your Christmas dreams come true

How’d you like to stay up late like the islanders do
Wait for Santa to sail in with your presents in a canoe
If you ever spend Christmas on Christmas Island
You will never stray for everyday your Christmas dreams come true

Aloha-hey, Aloha-hey, Aloha-oha-hey

GET IT OFF YOUR MIND
Well, if you like to go out to flop and fly
And if you don’t care if you live or die
You like that music with a beat
Well, if you clap your hands and stomp your feet
Let ‘em rock and roll, jump, hop
And get it off your mind

So if they’re rockin’, let ‘em rock
And if they’re rollin’, let ‘em roll
Or if they’re jumpin’, let ‘em jump
And they’re hoppin’, let ‘em hop
Let ‘em rock and roll, jump, hop
And get it off your mind

Well, if you got that feelin’ and it’s in your soul

Where you can rock and roll, jump, hop

JUST BECAUSE
Well, well, well
Just because you think you’re so pretty
And just because your momma thinks you’re hot
Well, just because you think you’ve got something
That no other girl has got

You’ve caused me to spend all my money
You laughed and called me old Santa Claus
And I’m telling you
Baby, I’m through with you
Because, well well, just because

Well, well, well,
There’ll come a time when you’ll be lonesome
And there’ll come a time when you’ll be blue
Well, there’ll come a time when old Santa
He won’t pay your bills for you

You’ve caused me to lose all my women
And now, now you say we are through
Well, I’m telling you
Baby, I was through with you
A long long time ago

Well, just because you think you’re so pretty
And just because your mama thinks you’re the hottest thing in town
Well, just because you think you’ve got something
That nobody else has got

You’ve caused me to spend all of my money
Honey, you laughed and called me your old Santa Claus
Well, I’m telling you baby I’m through with you
Because, well, well, just because

 

GLAD ALL OVER
Ain’t no doubt about it, this must be love
One little kiss from you and I feel glad all over
Oh baby, hot-dang-dilly, it’s so silly but I’m glad all over

I got goose pimples baby, ‘cause it feels so good
When you cuttle me like you do and I feel glad all over
Oh mercy, I’m a real cool pappy and I’m happy
And I’m glad all over

Everytime you do, well I feel glad all over
Oh mercy, hot-dang-dilly, it’s so silly but I’m glad all over

Well I’m tryin’ to tell you I’m cookin’ inside

Ooh mercy, hot-dong-dilly, it’s so silly but I’m glad all over
Hot-dang-dilly, it’s so silly but I’m glad all over
Ooh, hot-dang-dilly, it’s so silly but I’m glad all over

 

FLATFOOT SAM
Flatfoot Sam bought an automobile
No money down, it was a real good deal
Didn’t wanna work, ride and ride around town
Finance come, they put his feets on the ground
Flatfoot Sam, you’re always in a jam

Flatfoot Sam stole a ten dollar bill
He told the judge, he did it for a thrill
He got sixty days to spend in fine
Thank you judge for being so kind
Flatfoot Sam, you’re always in a jam

Here comes Flatfoot now

Flatfoot Sam he got him a job
The very same day the place got robbed
The cats got away, they couldn’t be found
They take it’s old Sam and they tagged him down
Flatfoot Sam, you’re always in a jam

Flatfoot Sam playin’ a chuck-a-luck game
The dice got switched, Sam got the blame
He pulled out açthe gun, shut out the light
Everybody hollered, run for your life
Flatfoot Sam, you’re always in a jam

Flatfoot Sam went out on a spree
He met with a gal weighs six stone three
She took all his money, she got all his land
Next thing she did, she got another man
Flatfoot Sam, you’re always in a jam

 

ROCK AND ROLL RUBY
Well, I took my Ruby jukin’ on the out-skirts of town
She took her high heels off and rolled her stockings down
She put a quarter in the jukebox to get a little beat
Everybody started watchin’ all the rhythm in her feet

She’s my rock and roll Ruby, rock and roll
Rock and roll Ruby, rock and roll
When Ruby starts a-rockin’ boy it satisfies my soul

Now Ruby started rockin’ ‘bout one o’clock
And when she started rockin’ she just couldn’t stop
She rocked on the tables and rolled on the floor
And everybody yelled “Ruby rock some more”

She’s my rock and roll Ruby, rock and roll
Rock and roll Ruby, rock and roll
When Ruby starts a-rockin’ boy it satisfies my soul

It was ‘round about four I thought she would stop
She looked at me and then she looked at the clock
She said “Wait a minute Daddy, now don’t get sour
All I want to do is rock a little bit more”

She’s my rock and roll Ruby, rock and roll
Rock and roll Ruby, rock and roll
When Ruby starts a-rockin’ boy it satisfies my soul

One night my Ruby left me all alone
I tried to contact her on the telephone
I finally found her about twelve o’clock
She said “leave me alone Daddy ‘cause your Ruby wants to rock”

She’s my rock and roll Ruby, rock and roll
Rock and roll Ruby, rock and roll
When Ruby starts a-rockin’ boy it satisfies my soul

Rock, rock, rock and roll
Rock, rock, rock and roll
Rock, rock, rock and roll
Rock, rock, rock and roll
When Ruby starts a-rockin’ boy it satisfies my soul

 

BLUE SUEDE SHOES
Well, it’s one for the money
Two for the show
Three to get ready
Now go, cat, go

But don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well, you can knock me down
Step in my face
Slander my name all over the place

Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh
Honey, lay off of my shoes
Don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

You can burn my house
Steal my car
Drink my liquor from an old fruitjar

Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh
Honey, lay off of my shoes
Don’t you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Well, it’s one for the money
Two for the show
Three to get ready
Now go, cat, go

But don’t you step on my blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

Blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

 

TENNESSEE ZIP
Well, down around the corner ‘bout Forty-Nine Square
There lives a little chick a with a long curly hair
Got blue eyes and ruby red lips
She’s a jitterbuggin’ baby with a Tennessee zip

Jitterbuggin’ baby, she can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)
Jitterbuggin’ baby, she can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)
She can rock, she can roll, she can jump, she can flip
A jitterbuggin’ baby with a Tennessee zip
Jitterbuggin’ baby, she can dance the whole night long

Some boys got a girl that’s nice and fair
Some’s got a girl with pretty curly hair
Some’s got a gal with a bit of hep
But my gal’s got that Tennessee zip

She’s my jitterbuggin’ baby, she can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)
My jitterbuggin’ baby, she can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)
She can rock, she can roll, she can jump, she can flip
A jitterbuggin’ baby, with a Tennessee zip
Jitterbuggin’ baby she can dance the whole night long

Well, I met you little girl not so long ago
Now here’s a little song that I want you to know
I know there’s lots of girls that I’ve never met
But this little chick I’ll never forget

She’s my jitterbuggin’ baby, she can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)
Jitterbuggin’ baby she can dance the whole night long
(Bop, bop, bop, bop)
She can rock, she can roll, she can jump, she can flip
A jitterbuggin’ baby with a Tennessee zip
Jitterbuggin’ baby, she can dance the whole night long

 

MONA LISA
Well Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have named you
You’re so like the lady with the mystic smile
Is it only ‘cause you’re lonely they have named you
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile

Well do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart
Are you warm, are you real Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art

Well in a villa, in a little old Italian town
Lives a girl whose beauty shames the rose
Many dreams have been brought to her
They all tumbled down
What does she want, nobody knows

Well Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have named you
You’re so like the lady with the mystic smile
Is it only ‘cause you’re lonely they have named you
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile

Well do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart
Are you warm, are you real Mona Lisa
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art

 

PEROXIDE BLONDE IN A HOPPED UP MODEL FORD
Well, I went out cattin’ on a Friday night
I was dressed to kill, I wasn’t lookin for a fight
I looked in the mirror, just waitin’ for the light
I saw a hot chick that really looked right

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down Main once more
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford
Now I’m draggin’, draggin’ down Main once more
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford

Well, I pulled on over, she asked me for a ride
She moved real close, side by side
I looked out the window and to my surprise
Was a hot rod boy just a-passin’ me by

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down Main once more
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford
Now I’m draggin’, draggin’ down Main once more
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford

Well, we trucked down Main just to make a scene
I parked my tyres when the light turned green
I slapped into the floor and led out on the clutch
What was left on the road, well wasn’t very much
We flew out of town, we were side by side
Twin carburetors weren’t open wide
Tires were smokin’, it started to whine
I tell you that blonde, she left me way behind

I’m draggin’, draggin’ down Main once more
With a peroxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford
Well I’m never never never, draggin’ down main no more
With a perioxide blonde in a hopped up model Frod
With a perioxide blonde in a hopped up model Ford

 

GET RHYTHM
Hey get rhythm, when you get the blues
Come on get rhythm, when you get the blues

Get a rock and roll feelin’ in your bones
Put taps on your toes and get goin’
Get rhythm, when you get the blues

A little shoe-shine boy he never gets low down
But he’s got the dirtiest job in town
Bendin’ low at the peoples feet
On a windy corner of a dirty street
When I asked him while he shine my shoes
How’d he keep from gettin’ the blues
He grinned as he raised his little head
Popped his shoe-shine rag and then he said

Get rhythm, when you get the blues
Come on get rhythm, when you get the blues

A jumpin’ rhythm makes you feel so fine
It’ll shake all your troubles from your worried mind
Get rhythm, when you get the blues

Hey get rhythm, when you get the blues
Come on get rhythm, when you get the blues

Get a rock and roll feelin’ in your bones
Put taps on your toes and get goin’
Get rhythm, when you get the blues

Well, I sat and I listened to the shoe-shine boy
And I thought I was gonna jump for joy
Slapped on his shoe-polish, left and right
He took a shoe-shine rag and he held it tight
He stopped once to wipe his sweat away
I said, you’re a mighty little boy to be a-working that way
He said I like it with a big wide grin
Kept on a-poppin’ and he’d say it again

Get rhythm, when you get the blues
Come on get rhythm, when you get the blues

It only costs a dime, just a nickel a shoe
It does a million dollars worth of good for you
Get rhythm, when you get the blues

 

STAIRWAY TO NOWHERE

Wishing (wishing) you come back to me

I’m a-travellin’ on stairway to nowhere

Wishing (wishing) you come back to me

Well, I saw you last night with another
And the tears so freely fell as I held them tight

I’m a-travellin’ on stairway to nowhere
Wishing (wishing) you come back to me

FLYIN’ SAUCER ROCK AND ROLL
Well, the news of the saucers been flyin’ around
I’m the only one who seen it on the ground
First thing I see when I saw it land
Cats jumped out and they started to bang

Flyin’ saucer rock and roll
Flyin’ saucer rock and roll
I couldn’t understand the things they said
But that crazy beat it just a-knockin’ me down

Well, the little green men still were real hip cats
Rockin’ and a-rollin’ to the crazy flats
Brought out the sax and started to blow
Brought out the drums and started to roll

Flyin’ saucer rock and roll
Flyin’ saucer rock and roll
I couldn’t understand the things they said
But that crazy beat it just a-knockin’ me down

Well, I come out a-hidin’ and I started to rock
Little green men taught me how to do the bop
They were three feet high they hit a few bars
Brought rock and roll all the way from Mars

Flyin’ saucer rock and roll
Flyin’ saucer rock and roll
I couldn’t understand the things they said
But that crazy beat it just a-knockin’ me down

 

LONELY WOLF
I’m like the lonely wolf on the prawl tonight
I’m like the lonely wolf on the prawl tonight
I’m gonna hunt you down when I get you in my site
I’m gonna hunt you down when I get you in my site
And when I finnaly trap you I’ll love you through the night

I gotta find my baby I didn’t treat her right
I gotta find my baby I didn’t treat her right
When I find my gal I’m gonna love with all my might

One more time

I’m like the lonely wolf ‘cause no one’s by my side
I’m like the lonely wolf ‘cause no one’s by my side
I’ll be all alone ‘til the very day I die
I’ll be all alone ‘til the very day I die
I’m like the lonely wolf I’m on the prawl tonight

 

RED CADILLAC AND BLACK MOUSTACHE
Who you been lovin’ since I been gone
A long tall man with a red coat on
Good for nothing baby you’ve been doing me wrong
Who you been lovin’ since I been gone
Who you been lovin’ since I been gone

Who’s been playin’ around with you
A real cool cat with eyes of blue
Trifflin’ baby are you being true
Who’s been foolin’ around with you
Who’s been foolin’ around with you

Somebody saw you at the break of day
Dinin’ and a-dancin’ in the cabaret
He was long and tall, he had plenty of cash
He had a red Cadillac and a black moustache

He held your little hand and sang you a song
Who you been lovin’ since I been gone
Who you been lovin’ since I been gone

Who’s been playin’ around with you
A real cool cat with eyes of blue
Trifflin’ baby are you being true
Who’s been foolin’ around with you
Who’s been foolin’ around with you

Somebody saw you at the break of day
Dinin’ and a-dancin’ in the cabaret
He was long and tall, he had plenty of cash
He had a red Cadillac and a black moustache

He held your little hand and he sang you a song
Who you been lovin’ since I been gone
Who you been lovin’ since I been gone
Who you been lovin’ since I been gone
Who you been lovin’ since I been gone

Brian Setzer Orchestra – Luck Be A Lady EP lyrics

BSO - LuckBeALadyJAPfront

LUCK BE A LADY
They call you Lady Luck
But there’s only room for doubt
At times you have a very unlady-like way of running out

Luck be a lady tonight
Luck be a lady tonight
Luck if you’ve ever been a lady to begin with
Luck be a lady tonight

Luck let a gentleman see
Just how nice, just how nice a dame you can be
I know the way you’ve treated other guys that you’ve been with
Luck be a lady with me

A lady never leaves her escort
It isn’t fair, it isn’t nice
A lady doesn’t wonder all over the room
And blow over some other guy’s dice

Let’s keep the party polite
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me baby
I’m the guy that you came in with
Luck be a lady tonight

Luck let a gentleman see
Just how nice, just how nice a dame you can be
I know the way you’ve treated other guys that you’ve been with
Luck be a lady with me

A lady never leaves her escort
It isn’t fair, it isn’t nice
A lady doesn’t wonder all over the room
And blow over some other guy’s dice

Let’s keep the party polite
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me baby
I’m the guy that you came in with
Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady tonight

 

LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW
Oh, the weather outside it’s frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

It doesn’t show signs of stopping
And I’ve brought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss goodnight
How’ll I hate going out in the storm
But if you’ll really hold me tight
All the way home I’ll be warm

The fire it slowly dying
And my dear, we’re still good-bying
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

The fire it slowly dying
And my dear, we’re still good-bying
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

 

RUN RUDOLPH RUN
Out of all the reinders you know you are the mastermind
Run run Rudolph, Randolph ain’t too far behind

Run run Rudolph
Santa’s gotta make it to town
Santa make him hurry
Tell him he can take the freeway down
Run run Rudolph
I’m really like a merry-go-round

Said Santa to a boy child
What have you been longing for?
All I want for Christmas is a rock ‘n’ roll electric guitar
And then away went Rudolph whizzin’ like a shootin’ star

Run run Rudolph
Santa’s gotta make it to town
Santa make him hurry
Tell him he can take the freeway down
Run run Rudolph
I’m really like a merry-go-round

Run run Rudolph
Santa’s gotta make it to town
Santa make him hurry
Tell him he can take the freeway down
Run run Rudolph
I’m really like a merry-go-round

Said Santa to a boy child
What have you been longing for?
All I want for Christmas is a rock ‘n’ roll electric guitar
And then away went Rudolph whizzin’ like a shootin’ star

Run run Rudolph
Santa’s gotta make it to town
Santa make him hurry
Tell him he can take the freeway down
Run run Rudolph
I’m really like a merry-go-round

 

WHAT ARE YOU DOIN’ NEW YEAR’S EVE
Maybe it’s much, much too early in the game
You know, I though I’d ask you just the same
What are you doin’ New Year’s, New Year’s Eve

Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it’s exactly twelve o’clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year
This New Year’s, this New Year’s, this New Year’s Eve

Maybe I’m crazy to suppose
I could ever be the one you chose, you chose
Out of a thousand invitations you recived

Oh, but in case, just in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advice
What are you doin’ New Year’s, New Year’s Eve

Oh, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advice
What are you doin’ New Year’s
This New Year’s Eve
Tell me what are you doing
What are you doin’ this New Year’s Eve

 

CACTUS CHRISTMAS
Santa’s yonder in the tumbleweeds on a team of armadillos
Wearin’ cowboy boots and bowtie his shirt is stuffed with pillows
Cactus Christmas yippie kiyo kyiay
Cactus Christmas there’s sand in Santa’s sleigh
Out where te jackrabbits roam ther’s no place like home for cactus Christmas

Look the happy little rattlesnakes in holliday apparel
Wiggling through the sagebrush to sing an old-fashioned carol
Cactus Christmas yippie kiyo kyiay
Cactus Christmas there’s sand in Santa’s sleigh
There’s gonna be presents everywhere underneath the prickly pear cactus Christmas

Amd the stars there nights
Look like Christmas lights
Strung across the western sky
Leads into a cowboy’s eye
It’s a mirage yes I know
But the sand looks like snow

A buzzard and a lizard hung their stockings with glee
A tarantula asked a gila monster, now where could Santa be?
Cactus Christmas yippie kiyo kyiay
Cactus Christmas there’s sand in Santa’s sleigh
Out wher it’s hot and sandy gonna be dry and dandy cactus Christmas

Where the jackrabbits roam there’s no place like home for catus Christmas
Yippie kiyo kyiay gonna be a-okay
Cactus Christmas, cactus Christmas
