No more credit from the liquor store
My suit is all dirty boy, my shoes is all wore
I'm tired and lonely, my heart is all sore
Advance romance, I can't stand it no more
No more...

She told me she loved me, I believed what she said
She took me for a sucker boy, all corn-fed
The next thing I knew she had a bolt on the door
Advance romance, I can't use it no more
No more...

She took ike's watch like they always do
(it was a timex too).
Ahoo ahoo...
And a shame on you, yeah
No more money boy, I-I-I-I shoulda knew
Nennen hennin henninah...
Won't somebody go sit on ah...
Nennen hennin henninah...
Yes! he sure looks magic!
Hi-ho silver!
Tinsel chair!
The big jaws...
The way she do me boy
She might do you too!
Awfully big jaws, now!
The way she do me boy
She might do you too!
Shake up the...
I'll tumble for ya!
Oh no!
The way she do me boy
She might do you too!
You remember utah...
You know what happened...
Jaws!

Advance romance
People I am through
I'm through...

Potato-head bobby was a friend of mine
He opened three of his eyes in the food stamp line
He opened four of his eyes in the food stamp line
He opened five of his eyes in the food stamp line
He opened six of his eyes in the food stamp line
He said she might be the devil
Well, I don't know...
But she sure was fine...
Advance romance
He wanna try it one time
Just one time...
Later that night he drop on by
He told her all he wanna do is come up and say 'hi'
(hi-hi-hi...)
Half an hour later she had frenched his fry
Everybody:
Yodeloo yodeloo yodeloo oh
Frenched his fry
(isn't that amazing? )
Advance romance
Bobby say goodbye-ye-ye-yiee-I-ee-I-ee-I-ee-I

No more credit from the liquor store
Suit is all dirty, my shoes is all wore
Tired and lonely, my heart is all sore
Advance romance
I can't stand it no more, you know
Told me she loved me, I believed what she said
Took me for a sucker, boy, all corn-fed
Next thing I knew she had a bolt on the door
Advance romance
I can't use it no more, no, I can't use it
She took George's watch like they always do
(It was a Timex, too!)
(Him ashamed on you)
No more money, boy, I shoulda knew
(You know I told ya)
(I know you told me)
(You didn't listen to me)
(But I couldn't listen to you!)
Told you 'bout the anchovies…
(You know what I'm talkin' about!)
George Duke!
The way she do me, boy
She might do you, too
The way she do me, boy
She might do you, too
The way she do me, boy
She might do you, too
(Look what she did to Denny right now!)
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
All night long
Advance romance
(Think about it!)
People we… are…
(Yeah, one more time, one time!)
Through! But, wait a minute!
Potato-head Bobby was a friend of mine
Opened three of his eyes in the food stamp line
Opened four of his eyes in the food stamp line
Opened five of his eyes in the food stamp line
Opened six of his eyes in the food stamp line
Oh, you know they told me she might be a devil
No, you like them
Good God! Did you hear what I said?
Evil women
Oh, yeah!
You know, you know, you know
But she sure was fine
You like them
Oh, yeah!
Evil women
Growin' up, goin' home!
Advance romance
(What you gonna do?)
He wanna try it one time
He said he don't mind, no
Later that night he drop on by
Told her all he wanna do was step up and say "Hi"
(HI-HI HI-HI HI-HI HI-HI HI-HI HI-HI HI-HI HI-HI)
Half an hour later she had frenched his fry
Advance romance
Bobby, say good-bye

The opening line, "No more credit at the liquor store," is pure blues brilliance in a class with "Woke up this morning."

@Spoon Griffin I see. No good start for the day.

Spoon Griffin

@exentr Waking up in the morning is the hardest thing to do when you got the blues.

SoftserveSodium

exentr its just a classic. Woke up this morning, look around for my shoes. Lord know i got them mean ol’ walkin’ blues. Its talking about how every waking minute is suffering.

Tom Fowler on bass: tasteful space, precision, ears...if only more bassists had the nerve to not play every subdivision of every bar the world would be a better place

guringai

Yea I so agree about skipping a few beats for interesting rhythm!

John Balls

Blame jaco

Denny Walley plays some nasty slide guitar on this one. I..I...I....just gotta say Potato Head Bobby was a friend of mine, opened 3 of his eyes in the food stamp line, opened 4 of his eyes in the food stamp line, opened 5 of his eyes in the food stamp line, opened 6 of his eyes in the food stamp line....(half an hour later she had frenched his frie).
