The Lyrics

Was mad as hell at Lou
because that slime
would not aid me in getting screws
removed by pryin’
’em from knees—cryin’
was I; couldn’t stand it,
so I asked that clown
to give me and hand, yet
he left me stranded there on the ground.
He would not help me, Lou—
that wasn’t fine…not fine!

What to do?
Weep and rue?
Curse at Lou?
brought him down
He’s lying there,
alongside of me,
plugged by my round,
and deceased.

I put a shell in Lou.
Was that a crime?
