Parked on the corner in a beat up car Devouring up a liquor candy bar Talking all about how sharp they are These three cool cats Three cool chicks Three cool chicks
Walking down the street just swinging their hips Spinning up a bag of potato chips And three cool cats did three big flips For these three cool chicks
Up pop that first cool cat He said, "man look at that Men do you see what I see?" "I want the middle chick" "And I want the little chick" "Hey men, save one chick for me!"
Three cool chicks Three cool chicks
They look like angels from up above Three cool cats really fell in love Three cool chicks made three fools Of these three cool cats That's what they did Three cool chicks Made fools of these Three cool cats I'm a fool for you baby Three cool chicks Three cool cats
Mister, you're a baseball man, as anyone can plainly see The straightest game in this great land. Take a little tip from me I work here nights, parking cars, underneath the moon and stars The same ones that we all knew back in 1952 And if you want to know where a local boy like me is coming from 3rd base, Dodger Stadium
2nd base, right over there. I see grandma in her rocking chair Watching linens flapping in the breeze, and all the fellows choosing up their teams Hand over hand on that Louisville. Crowning the top, king of the hill Mound to home, sixty feet. Baseball been very good to me And if you want to know where a local boy like me is coming from 3rd base, Dodger Stadium 3rd base, Dodger Stadium
Back around the 76 ball, Johnny Greeneyes had his shoeshine stall In the middle of the 1st base line, got my first kiss, Florencia was kind Now, if the dozer hadn't taken my yard, you'd see the tree with our initials carved So many moments in my memory. Sure was fun, 'cause the game was free It was free
Hey mister, you seem anxious to go. You'll find that seat, in the 7th row Behind home plate, where we used to meet. When we were young, we had dreams Just a place you don't know, up a road you can't go Just a thought, laid to rest in my mind, just a time If you care to know where I'm gonna go when I hit my last homerun 3rd base, Dodger Stadium 3rd base, Dodger Stadium 3rd base, Dodger Stadium Hey, Mister, you are a baseball man Yes, I'm a baseball man myself Yes, I'm a baseball man, too Baseball been very good to me Yes, baseball been very good to me
I started writing country songs in 1962 Just a dream that I had on my mind My girl and I got married in 1963 We tried so hard to keep our dreams alive
So I bought an old house-trailer out on the country side You can't write country songs in town they say We packed up and moved out there and as the time went by We found that we liked living free that way
I got me an old Cadillac just to have around Cadillacs and country songs were meant to be I heard that old Hank Williams drove one just like mine So I thought that something might rub off on me
You can take what you want after I'm gone It's only just a little place that we called home sweet home One old house trailer two rusty Cadillacs and 5000 country music songs
I always sent my songs up to Nashville town In Gase the boys could use a guy like me But the mailman brought 'em right back down and I think it made him sad You're bound to get you one just wait and see
I recall the year Ray Price came through town His tour bus parked about a mile from here
I sat there in the backseat of that old Coupe De Ville Those shoes were just too big to fill that year
A song on Bobby Bare would take you anywhere If I'm still here it wasn't for lack of trying My wife would tell me Honey I'm feelin' somethin' there Don't care if Bobby never reads a line
Then late one Summer evening she called me to her side Saying sing me something in your real old style The one I like to hear Bobby Bare passed by I'll just close my eyes and rest a while
Well she liked that big old tree and the honeysuckle vine And the mocking bird that sang so tenderly I just packed up all those song words and my old guitar I locked them up and threw away the key

There's a place where I've been told Every street is paved with gold And it's just across the borderline And when it's time to take your turn Here's one lesson that you must learn You could lose more than you'll ever hope to find
When you reach the broken promised land And every dream slips through your hands Then you'll know that it's too late to change your mind 'Cause you've paid the price to come so far Just to wind up where you are And you're still just across the borderline
Up and down the Rio Grande A thousand footprints in the sand Reveal a secret no one can define The river flows on like a breath In between our life and death Tell me who's the next to cross the borderline
En la triste oscuridad (in the sad darkness) Hoy tenemos que cruzar (today we have to cross) Este río que nos llama más allá (this river which calls us further away)
But hope remains when pride is gone And it keeps you moving on Calling you across the borderline
When you reach the broken promised land Every dream slips through your hands And you'll know it's too late to change your mind 'Cause you pay the price to come so far Just to wind up where you are And you're still just across the borderline Now you're still just across the borderline And you're still just across the borderline
Look at this one, look at that one Tell me do they look like me All my friends said, don't you worry Said they'll testify for me Well, I wonder which of my friends had it in for me Alimony, alimony, alimony is killing me I don't want six extra children When ain't but two that look like me Please, have mercy, judge your honor Alimony is killing me
Please, have mercy, judge your honor I'm as poor as I can be Ain't had money in my pockets Since way back in fifty three Can't you cut down all my payment? Alimony is killing me Alimony, alimony, alimony is killing me Alimony, alimony, alimony is killing me
Yeah! Oh! Well, bless my soul, what's wrong with me? I'm itching like a man on a fuzzy tree The friends say I'm acting wild as a bug I'm in love, I'm all shook up I'm, I'm, I'm I'm, I'm, I'm, oh Lord Yeah yeah yeah
My hands are shaky and my knees are weak I can't seem to stand on my own two feet Who do you thank when you have such luck? I'm in love, I'm all shook up
Well, please don't ask me what's on my mind A little mixed up, but I'm feeling fine I'm near the girl I love the best My heart beats so it scares me to...
She touched my hand and what a chill I got Her lips are like a volcano when that's hot I'm proud to say she's my buttercup I'm in love and I'm all messed up
When a fellow has the blues and feels discouraged And there's nothing else but trouble all his life When he's always grumbled at and never happy Living with a scolding, aggravating wife If he's sick and tired of life and takes to drinking Do not pass him by, don't greet him with a frown Do not fail to lend a hand and try to help him Always lift him up and never knock him down If he stays out late at night because he's worried And because his home is not what it should be Have a smile for him whenever you should meet him It would help him just the right way, don't you see If he gambles when he's in the town or city Tell him what he ought to do to gain the crown Lend a hand and do not fail to show him pity Always lift him up and never knock him down If he cannot pay his debts and feels disgusted If he's blue and doesn't have a word to say Let him know you are his friend who can be trusted It would cheer this lonely fellow on his way If he finds it hard for him to keep his family Let a kind word greet his ear when he's around Don't say anything at all to make against him Always lift him up and never knock him down If he has no friends and everyone's against him If he's failed at everything that he has tried Try to lift his load, to help to bear his burden Let him know that you are walking by his side And if he feels that all is lost, and he is falling Try to place that poor man's feet on solid ground Just remember he's some mother's precious darling Always lift him up and never knock him down Always lift him up and never knock him down
