STRAP YOUR ARMS

STRAP  YOUR  ARMS  ‘ROUND  MY  ENGINE

I rode a dirt bike late lastnight   behind a

biker  named Mac   He couldn’t believe I

was flying over the bumps    riding  high  in the      saddle

 

Like when I was 5   on Tex   our lonely old horse

whose only companion was Billy   He taught Illinois

a 2yr.old   boy    to climb fences       and respect goats

 

Born fearless   Born to run   Born to die   You and  I

 

Let’s turn off the tv  and go outside   ride

the pygmy ponies to the  Vieux Carre´

No   No   say No  to the nihilists and to all    burnt out    blue-eyed    cowboys

 

Zappa-montana
