I Went Down to the Mall

I went down to the mall today / top-hat on my head

bathrobe and flip-flops / whistling the Grateful Dead

I went into the Radio Shack and the good old Tenderbox / as usual I stayed away from that store selling only sox

I went down to the mall / I went down to the mall

Caesar went to Gaul / I went down to the mall

I checked out the movie marquee / nothing I wanted to see

so I sat on a bench with a lemonade / they had a whale of a Christmas tree

teenagers were everywhere / our nation’s future leaders

I sat and wondered how many of them / were packing 9 millimeters

I went down to the mall / I went down to the mall

Newton saw an apple fall / I went down to the mall

Victoria’s Secrets window / God, I’m a lonely guy

was it just another acid flashback / or did that blonde in black say hi?

Phil the Midget showed up / I pulled out two cigars

we went outside and lit ’em / then walked down to the bars

I went down to the mall / I went down to the mall

Everest is too tall / I went down to the mall

Darn It Ashley

so I’m hiking up in the mountains / with Ashley my girlfriend

unaware our happy trail / is about to end

we run into this mountain man / the mountain man says “hiya”

Speedo and a coonskin hat / he says his name is Jeremiah

darn it Ashley

Jeremiah has a moonshine jug / he’s a typical mountain man

Ashley takes a chug-a-lug / says “Jer, I like your tan”

well, we pass that jug around / I head for the moonshine zone

people let me tell you when I wake up / man, I’m all alone

darn it Ashley

I sit  down near the waterfall / to eat a little trail mix

I start in to missing Denver / God, how I love bricks

now this isn’t the first time / old Ashley’s gone astray

there was this cross-eyed matador / way down Mexico way

darn it Ashley

as Ashley’s out cavorting / with that Jeremiah dude

I sit around with my trail mix / longing for fast food

a Grizzly Bear comes nosing around / I figure it’s time to leave

Jeremiah my mama’s bowling ball / his name is probably Bruce or Steve

must reach Taco Bell

so I hop into my Neon / head back to civilization

turn on the Rockies game / to cheers and ovation

Larry Walker hits one out / the Rocks are up by three

Ashley don’t like baseball / baseball’s been good to me

darn it Ashley

Heber The Polygamist Rides Again

I’m Heber the polygamist / wandering up and down the halls

tripping over the little rug-rats / man, I’m having me a ball, y’all

I’m Heber, Heber, Heber, I’m Heber / the polygamist

I’m Heber the polygamist / we all live in a great big house

all my wives are local girls / except for Judy, who I met in Taos

that’s Judy over there on guard duty

I’m Heber, Heber, Heber, I’m Heber / the polygamist

I’m Heber the polygamist / got an urge for number six

she does stuff they do in France / I don’t know where she learned those tricks

but I like ’em

I’m Heber, Heber, Heber, I’m Heber / H-E-B-E-R

I’m Heber the polygamist / wandering up and down the halls

my legs are getting wobbly / man, I’m crashing into walls

but I please ’em all

’cause  I’m Heber, Heber, Heber, I’m Heber / the polygamist

I’m Heber the polygamist / man, I gotta go somewhere

throw the dog on the Cadillac roof / where am I going? hell, who cares

I’m Heber, Heber, Heber, I’m Heber / the polygamist
