Taking Notes and Stealing Quotes on this song

Cover-version: yes

 

Words by
Keith Reid

Weird goings-on at the County Jail
Prisoners reading the sheriff's mail
He's strapped down to a swivel chair
trying to swivel right out of there
Pin-striped Sweet's in Cell 15
Convinced his self it's all a dream
He's got a pet black tabby cat
that carries a gun and wears a Stetson hat

The door flies open, in strides Geek
Looking like the front page of Newsweek
He says to Lou in a voice of glee,
'What's the matter, ain't you glad to see me?'
Lou's on the floor 'cause he can't stand up
as green as a leaf in a tea-cup
When on to Geek's back jumps a Stetson-hatted cat
Which breaks Geek's neck like he was a rat

Long gone Geek!
