You can't save me, you can't save a wretch like me
When she was seventeen She married a Preacher Man And she settled down In a little part of town Followed him all around Having little babies Singing in a little Church In a little ghost town
She's so happy (I don't want to keep up I can't keep up) She's so happy, keeping up (I don't wanna keep up, keeping up with the Jones')
Finally she told me Grandpa Dan travelled Playing on the road With Nat King Cole And he womanised Staying up all night Cruisin'up around the town From town to town to town
(Let me go, ah ah Hurricane) (Just let me go, ah ah I'm going to care)
Why don't you be a Jones like your Sister and your brother Noel When are you gonna be a Jones your just like your Dad God bless his soul
I've got the William's blood in me I've got the William's blood in me I've got the William's blood in me (I've got the Williams' blood) I've got the William's blood in me In me, in me, in me, running though my veins William's blood in me
In a room full of doves I'm waiting for the Angels Spreading my wings So I can fly (Let me fly ah ah, hurricane) (Let me go, ah ah Hurricane) Why don't you be a Jones like your Sister and your brother Noel
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
