All the whores are playin' Lord on a buck 95 K-Mart Ouija Board You can do it, they can do it All the whores are playin' Lord on a buck 95 K-Mart Ouija Board You can do it Push Push Man I think this holy waters a little watered down Sold my soul for a bowl to this hooker I met in cow town They can do it, cow town Well your history is bleak but my future looks kind Throw a dove in the air so baby you know when to cry, cry, cry Push Push

When I was a little kid I fell down a well, it was hell Luckily the clown broke my fall Funny thing he wasn't laughing at all I try to make change for a dollar Old Betty said, that makes no cents So I puked next to her juke box Another Christmas come and gone Oh Betty come on Big Black Betty in a one horse sweaty come on Big Black Betty in a one horse sweaty come on Big Black Betty in a one horse sweaty come on Come on now Betty - Hit it Won't catch me staring thru that window Cause if I do it's all dead swallows, calling out my name The ballads were all played on a banjo The devil wore a wedding gown The priest stared at my speedo as the gazebo burnt to the ground When I was a little l kid I fell down a well Let me tell you, it was hell Luckily the clown broke my fall Funny thing he wasn't laughing at all Big Black Betty in a one horse sweaty come on Big Black Betty in a one horse sweaty come on Big Black Betty in a one horse sweaty come on Come on now Betty - Hit it Won't catch me staring thru that window pane Cause if I do it's all dead swallows, calling out my name Calling out my name

Well sometimes it rains in Hollywood and sometimes it pours in my mind Huh? And other days it feels so simple one, two, three of a kind Lick my monkey like American pie Woulda drown in hell but the Well Gone Dry Takin’ my old lady to the boom boom shack where the hip hop people gonna give my old lady a heart attack Well yeah they gonna do it Takin’ my old lady to bim bo shack where the hip po slack Everybody likin’ my funkiness Yeah they gonna do it Lick my money like American Pie Woulda drown in hell but the Well Gone Dry Takin’ my old lady to the boom boom shack where the hip hop people gonna give my old lady a heart attack Well yeah they gonna do it Takin’ my old lady to bim bo shack where the hip po slack Everybody likin’ my funkiness Yeah they gonna do it Lick my money like American Pie Woulda drown in hell but the Well Gone Dry Yeah she move me She’s my Shangrila Well I don’t have much to say All those freaky kids in my way Baby it’s fine by me when the Well Gone Dry

about

Les Robot:
The self-titled 2005 debut set by Canadian guitarist and lunatic genius Les Robot drew comparisons to Beck, Zappa & Waits by fans, and is a raw sample of his overwhelming creativity. Nylons, pet monkeys, and cocaine cowboys... the collection is organically eccentric and full of an absurdist humor that never feels pretentious or forced. Robot fuses country, classical, electronica, and shred into a unified sound held together by well-above-average songwriting skills and a large portion of rock attitude. As a first album, this makes a strong statement.
