Eddie Graces Buick got four bullet holes in the side,
Charlie Delisle sittin' at the top of an avocado tree.
Mrs. Stormll stab you with a steak knife if you step on her lawn.
I got a half pack of Lucky Strikes, man, come along with me!
Lets fill our pockets with macadamia nuts, then go over to Bobby Goodmansons and jump off the roof! Hilda plays strip poker and her mamas across the street,
Joey Navinski says she put her tongue in his mouth!
Dicky Faulkners got a switchblade and some gooseneck risers that eucalyptus is a hunchback,
There's a wind up from the south!
Let me tie you up with kite string and I'll show you the scabs on my knee!
Watch out for the broken glass, put your shoes and socks on and come along with me!
Lets follow that fire truck
I think your house is burnin' down!
Then go down to the hobo jungle
And kill some rattlesnakes with a trowel!
We'll break all the windows in the old Anderson place
And steal a bunch of boysenberrys
And smear 'em on our face!
I'll get a dollar from my mamas purse
And buy that skull and crossbones ring
And you can wear it around your neck
On an old piece of string
Then we'll spit on Ronnie Arnold
And flip him the bird
And slash the tires on the school bus
Now don't say a word!
I'll take a rusty nail
And scratch your initials on my arm
And I'll show you how to sneak up
On the roof of the drugstore
Take the spokes from your wheelchair
And a magpies wings
And tie 'em to your shoulders and your feet!
I'll steal a hacksaw from my dad
And cut the braces off your legs
And we'll bury them tonight in the cornfield
Put a church key in your pocket
We'll hop that freight train in the hall
And we'll slide all the way down the drain
To New Orleans in the fall!
