  • I'm goin' out west where the wind blows tall
    'Cause Tony Franciosa used to date my ma
    They got some money out there, they're givin' it away
    I'm gonna do what I want and I'm gonna get paid
    Do what I want and I'm gonna get paid

    Little brown sausages lying in the sand
    I ain't no extra baby, I'm a leading man
    Well, my parole officer will be proud of me
    With my Olds '88 and the devil on a leash
    My Olds '88 and the devil on a leash

    I know karate, Voodoo too
    I'm gonna make myself available to you
    I don't need no make up, I got real scars
    I got hair on my chest
    I look good without a shirt

    Well, I don't lose my composure in a high-speed chase
    Well, my friends think I'm ugly, I got a masculine face
    I got some drag-strip courage, I can really drive a bed
    I'm gonna change my name to Hannibal or maybe just Rex
    Change my name to Hannibal or maybe just Rex

    I know karate, Voodoo too
    I'm gonna make myself available to you
    I don't need no make up, I got real scars
    I got hair on my chest
    I look good without a shirt

    I'm gonna drive all night, get some speed
    I'm gonna wait for the sun to shine down on me
    I cut a hole in my roof, the shape of a heart
    And I'm goin' out west where they'll appreciate me
    I'm goin' out west where they'll appreciate me
    Goin' out west where they'll appreciate me
    Goin' out west where they'll appreciate me
    Goin' out west, goin' out west
    Goin' out west, goin' out west
    Goin' out west, goin' out west
    Goin' out west, goin' out west Writer/s: KATHLEEN BRENNAN, THOMAS ALAN WAITS
