Boom Chicky Boom

December 21, 2010 4:43 AM

I've just started a new band. It's a rollicking affair, kind of a neo-primitive, New Orleans funk/blues explosion, with tuba, drums, and yours truly on diddley bow (etc) and vocal. This is the first song of the first set of our first gig, and was a completely impromptu, unrehearsed affair. These guys can read my mind, and I think it's gonna be a really fun band. Well, it's already a really fun band, actually. I do hope you enjoy it. Video here.

how dark is the sky / how deep is the hill
if the thunder don't get you
then the avalanche will
your sister looks good
your mother looks better
go buy me a stamp
so i can send her a letter

boom boom boom chicky chicky boom boom boom

as mean as they come as mean as they go
some of these crazy motherfuckers
they'll cut off your toe
so listen to me we're staying at grandma's tonight
she may be old but she won't run from a fight

boom boom boom chicky chicky boom boom boom

see that fellow over yonder
just behind the pepper shaker
as sure as you're born
he'll introduce you to your maker
there's a ladybug crawling
on the edge of his knife
he'll put that bug right through your neck
if you even glance at his wife

boom boom boom chicky chicky boom boom boom

now friends i steer clear of danger
well anyway at least i try
i've always just said no to drugs
that is the ones that wouldn't get me high
i'm not the worlds most popular fellow
but on occasion i've been known to draw a crowd
i might think stupid or impure thoughts
but you'll very rarely hear me thinking them out loud
