lyrics

King Kong Strut

Chorus:
I'll tell you what
he's got the King Kong Strut
look at him strut

He owns a lumber yard
with 30 hungry men
and he gives them cheap liquor
that he waters down a bit
well the founding father
is his wife's dyin daddy
who's lying on his deathbed
struggling for one last breath
he knocks off at work
before the work whistle blows
and he goes to the house
where the girls all know his name
Madame Tussard
waters her front yard
sees his new car
blazin' in a trail of dust
(she says) I got some pretty young flowers
that you never done seen
but put away your business
of acting vicious and mean

Zipped up, buttoned up, mint in
freshen up
get out clean
gonna make it home before supper

Daddy, daddy, daddy
did you have a good day?
did you hear about grandpa?
he did pass away
well the daughter of the founding father
is sitting on a teeter totter
thinking about love
and how she don't get it
(he said) your Daddy was a good man
always lent a helping hand
he took me in
hope he didn't suffer

well the founding father
left a four line will
and he didn't care
who read it
he took away the lumber yard
and gave it to the men
Madame Tussard
driving a brand new Benz
Blood, blood, living blood
Pull them out from the sinking mud
left them all the money
and a book of revelations
He packed his bags
and he met the train
head up straight singin, when the saints go marchin in
