Shark Ropin’

oh I’v’e got my diving goggles and my Voit swim fins

it’s good work when you can get it, so I jump right on in

I’ve got me a rope, sorta like Will Rogers, I’m gonna rope me a shark

it is a very dangerous job boys, the bite is much worse than the bark

chorus:

shark ropin’ yippee yi yo, get along little doggies

later we’ll have some outlaw music just like back in Muskogee

I guess I should have stayed in college, I could have been a CEO

I could have been Madonna’s gynecologist, but it’s over the side I go

right off the bat here comes a hammerhead, nothing but ocean between us

if I ain’t careful he’ll have my butt for dinner,dessert could be my little old…

(chorus)

I rope the shark and I sell him to Sizzler, or San Diego Sea World

I collect my money and I hop on the bus man, go home and make love to my girl

(chorus)

Maybe I’ll Move To Vegas

maybe I’ll move to Vegas / tell the Brine Shrimp*  “see ya later”

curl my hair and get some glasses / be a Weird Al imitator

gonna drive all the women crazy / singin’ ’bout my bologna

do  ‘Another One Rides the Bus’ / for the old folks from Sedona

hey maybe I’ll move to Vegas

maybe I’ll move to Vegas / it’s right down I-15

I’ll try not to get in a car crash / I don’t need no ruptured spleen

gonna buy a Big Mac in Beaver / with some french fries and a Sprite

Beaver,city of magic / Beaver, city of lights

hey maybe I’ll move to Vegas

maybe I’ll move to Vegas / put a slot machine in my kitchen

my friends from L.A. will come to visit me / they’ll say “wow dude, how bitchen”

gonna find me a forty-something waitress / who looks good in a mini-skirt

I’ll get in an all night poker game / probably lose my Hawaiian shirt

hey maybe I’ll move to Vegas

move it

maybe I’ll move to Vegas /  maybe not, I don’t know

I’ve been watching ‘Ocean’s 11′ / on the Late Late Show

we could start up another Rat Pack / all those other imitators and I

I’m talkin’ Elvis and Neil Diamond / and that lonely Orbison guy

hey maybe I’ll move to Vegas

I said maybe I’ll move to Vegas

* this song was written and recorded in Salt Lake City, Utah. Brine Shrimp are tiny gastronomical delights you can scoop right out of The Great Salt Lake by the bucket-full. I recommend washing  them down with Wasatch Beer.

Wildfire, My Pet Snail

(chorus) he’s Wildfire, my pet snail / he ain’t as fast as light rail

I gotta smile when he wags that tail / he’s Wildfire, my pet snail

I found him outside under a plant / surrounded by some hungry ants

felt sorry for him and picked him up / then he wagged that tail like a friendly pup

(repeat chorus)

he ain’t much work as pets go / he don’t cost me any dough

I can fly to Paris, check out the Louvre / then fly back home, he’s barely moved

(repeat chorus)

he lives in my old aquarium / someday he’ll die and I will bury ‘um

down by the river in a thunder shower / and once a year I’ll bring him flowers

(repeat chorus)
