Simon The Bullet Freak

Album: Salisbury (1971)
  • Washington at Valley Forge
    Bitter cold but up spoke George
    Said vo-doe-de-o, vo-doe-de-o, doe

    Crazy words, crazy tune
    All that George could croon and swoon
    Was vo-doe-de-o, vo-doe-de-o, doe

    On his ukulele, daily
    He would strum
    Beedle um bum
    Dancing, prancing
    And then he'd holler "Red Hot Mama"

    Crazy words, crazy tune
    All that George could croon and swoon
    Was vo-doe-de-o, vo-doe-de-o, doe

    Washington at Valley Forge
    Bitter cold but up spoke George
    Said vo-doe-de-o, vo-doe-de-o, doe

    Crazy words, crazy tune
    All that George could croon and swoon
    Was vo-doe-de-o, vo-doe-de-o, doe

    Washington at Valley Forge
    Freezing cold but up spoke George
    Said vo-doe-de-o, vo-doe-de-o, doe
    Vo-doe-de-o doe Writer/s: KEN HENSLEY

  • Bill from UsI had this album but with a different cover, orange with a sketch of a matador or something. What was the change about? When I first heard the album, Salsbury, I played it over and over but had no idea what most of it was about.
