Big Five-0

I’m turning the big five-0 / sitting in a topless dive

Candi, Sandi and Brandi / Bachman-Turner Overdrive

Candi, Sandi and Brandi / are all under twenty-five

I’m turning the big five-0 / happy I’m still alive

I’m turning the big five-0 / don’t need no birthday cake

Candi’s sitting at my table / she’s taking a little break

Candi, Sandi and Brandi / go to college down in Salt Lake

they’ll be glad when they graduate / their feet are beginning to ache

I’m turning the big five-o / having my own little party

after this pitcher I’m switching / to Diet Coke and Bacardi

I’m turning the big five-0 / fifty years breathing air

if I live to be one hundred / it looks like I’m halfway there

Candi, Sandi and Brandi / I keep falling off this chair

I’m turning the big five-0 / someone call me a taxi

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.

2002

Salt Lake City gonna have an Olympics / in the year 2002

gonna rent my house out to some Austrians / ten thousand bucks for the week will do

Salt Lake City gonna have an Olympics / wish I owned  a laundromat

fifty bucks a load and a small box of soap / only Democrats would be against that

Salt Lake City’s gonna have an Olympics / yeah, them wonderful winter games

gonna need to hire some extra security / maybe we can get Tanya what’s her name

Salt Lake City gonna have an Olympics / I stay calm behind the wheel

we’re gonna get us a brand new freeway / a few extra wrecks is no big deal

yahoo yahoo 2002 / yahoo yahoo 2002

Salt Lake City’s gonna have an Olympics / God’s on our side, He’ll clean the air

we can take the homeless / and cram ’em  in boxcars / ship them off to a camp somewhere

Salt Lake City’s gonna have an Olympics / Olympics are just fine by me

of course, with my house rented out to Austrians / I’ll be catching rays in Waikiki

aloha
