  • Well you can ride the hennenpin crawler for a dollar
    Peddle it around the world
    You can ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    Impress them steam punk girls
    If you ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    You'll feel that burn in your thigh
    'Cause when you ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    You get to touch that pie in the sky

    He'll show his crusty old pickle for a nickel
    Must say I'd rather not
    He tried to show a girl off of Florence street
    He's damn lucky he didn't get caught
    Fell asleep on night with a lit cigarette
    As he tried to drink away his pain
    When a fireman doused his burnt out shack
    All they found was a greasy stain

    Go go
    Go go
    Go go
    Go go
    Go

    Now you can ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    And peddle your cares away
    You can ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    You best be prepared to pay
    'Cause when you ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    There's no friends or cuttin' deals
    You can ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    Sweat's gonna grease them wheels

    Go go
    Go go
    Go go
    Go go
    Go go
    Go go
    Go go
    Go

    He tried to buy a lotta ore for a quarter
    Way back in the olden days
    He sold his soul for a donut hole
    He could muster the nerve to ask for a raise
    She sold sea shells and other things
    Down by the old sea shore
    When she sold her song to a beer commercial
    She looked like a filthy whore
    Ha ha

    Go go
    Go go
    Go go
    Go

    Now you can ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    Peddle it around the world
    You can ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    Impress them steam punk girls
    You can ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    You feel that burn in your thigh
    'Cause when you ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar
    You get to bite that pie in the sky
    You get to bite that pie in the sky
    You get to bite that pie in the sky
    You get to bite that pie in the sky
    You get to bite that pie in the sky

    Go go
    Go go
    Go go
    Go go

    Hennepin, Hennepin Crawler
    Hennepin, Hennepin Crawler
    Hennepin, Hennepin Crawler
    You can ride the Hennepin Crawler for a dollar Writer/s: JAY LANE, LES CLAYPOOL, REID L. III LALONDE
