leaving time

Sung to the hymn of “The yellow rose of Texas”

I was cursing down the road
 tired and all a lone
just a passing through ole` Oklahome

So I shut down and pulled in-
to this old run down joint

I went in through the back door
and I got myself a beer

I was sitting at the bar feeling mighty tired
When I noticed this GOGO dancer looking right at me
She came up to greet me, and said her name was Bee
Well, my that GOGO dancer she sure looked good to me

She looked to be bread in ole` Kentucky 
But just a crumb down here
She’s knocked kneed double jointed 
with a cauliflowered  ear.

 She smokes them white owl stogies 
and drinks them rum and sodies

I see her habits are quite brutal
in bed she’ll be Apple strudel
Well now that GOGO dancer she looks good to me….

I think it’s best time for leaving
Or in the morning I’ll be a grieving
