The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Colonel Angus my name
And I rode on the Amtrak train

To see my lady I came
Then off to Iraq again

In the summer of zero-four
She was lonely
She ran to the door

Into my arms, my lady, she fell
It was a time, I remember, oh, so well


The night
Colonel Angus went down

And all the bells were ringin'

The night
Colonel Angus went down

And Colonel's lady was singin'
She went,

"Ahhh, ah-ah-ah-ah, ah! Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ahhhh...."


Back with my wife in Tennessee
And one day she said to me,

"Angus, quick, come see! Martha Stewart's guilty."

Now I don't mind the tabloid news
And I don't care what new diet you choose

Just lay here with me, give me a kiss

And let my clever
Tongue rake-in
Your married bliss


The night
Colonel Angus went down

And all the bells were ringin'

The night
Colonel Angus went down

And Colonel's lady was singin'
She went,

"Ahhh, ah-ah-ah-ah, ah! Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ahhhh...."


Like my father before me
I'm an Angus man

And like my mother before me
My wife's an Angus fan

Oh she is just 18, young and bright
And she loves her Colonel Angus all night

I swear by our bed's red satin sheets
Colonel Angus will not stop
'Til his jaw's asleep!


The night
Colonel Angus went down

And all the bells were ringin'

The night
Colonel Angus went down

And Colonel's lady was singin'
She went,

"Ahhh, ah-ah-ah-ah, ah! Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ahhhh...."

Loves Colonel Angus! He's such a cunning linguist!

This is what I thought it would be. It gets the idea across without being too blatant. 5's

A few SNL fans out there, I see. Nice translation of the skit, JD.

Mistress Leola: He is indeed, isn't he! Thank you, ma'am!

Adagio: Thanks --- I decided to have fun with double-entendre & innuendo again.

JB: That has got to be one of my all-time favorite SNL sketches --- Christopher Walken as "Colonel Angus" comin' home to the plantation! Thanks!

alvin: WOOF! (translation: Thank you!)

Merry: LOL, I can see Edith stroking her chin with a puzzled look on her face just before the lightbulb goes on over her "ding-bat" head! Thanks!

"I swear by our bed's red satin sheets, Col. Angus will not stop till his jaw's asleep"--MWAH-ha-ha-ha! You know what makes that even funnier? Hearing Joan Baez singing it in my head! Three cheers for Col. Angus! Huzzah!

Johnny D - Great work ! 5's - hmmm...just to show you how OLD I am, when your line said "in the summer of zero-four" I was thinking, "Damn, that's nearly 100 years ago, what's he talking about? ". Then the Meds kicked in and I figured it out.
Johnny D - July 23, 2004 - Report this comment
