The Lyrics

...inspired by "the fugitive"...
hey, where did you go ?
gone, when the cops came
disfigured fellow
left me to get blamed
murdering and running...hey hey
skipping off, legs pumping
wife, i am a-mourning...yeah yeah
wow...she's been bumped off by you
the one armed man
you..the one armed man

whatever happened ?
i find she's been laid low
taken out by a cold man
with a limb missing, doncha know ?
fingered, cause the cops are baffled
do not buy my tale at all
so i must be hiding
looks like i must take the fall for you
the one armed man
you...the one armed man

you've a dismembered limb
you've taken wing
wah wah wah wah wah wah wah
wah wah wah wah wah wah
you big rat
wah wah wah wah wah wah wah
wah wah wah wah wah wah
you're uncaught

i had to get away
sadly, i'm on my own
i saw you just the other day
my, the coop you've flown
in my memory, your face, bored
sometime i'm overcome thinking about
you think you've got a free pass
i'll...find...you...dirty bum
yeah, you
the one armed man
you...the one armed man

you've a dismembered limb
you've taken wing
wah wah wah wah wah wah wah
wah wah wah wah wah wah
you big rat
wah wah wah wah wah wah wah
wah wah wah wah wah wah
you're uncaught

I assume that was about that ancient show The Fugitive. Good twist on the original song.

One arm = Five fingers. Of course, "The Fugitive" inspired not just a Harrison Ford film version and the later Steven Weber reboot series that didn't last, but also countless knockoffs, including the TV version of "The Incredible Hulk." The August 29, 1967 finale broke Ed Sullivan's Beatles-into record for most-watched TV show in U.S. history, and it wasn't just because people wanted the story resolved: It was damn good TV, right down to the "heavy" (the late Barry Morse as Lt. Gerard) seeing that the hero (David Janssen as Dr. Kimble) was right all along and helping him bring the real killer down.

One of my favorite OSes, and a very good movie (and tv show...but I'm more familiar with the movie). Great job.

I seem to recall that cross eyed girl and one eyed snake has been done already to this song, still there are good takes left obviously. :-)

Very nice job. Quite a leap of imagination, tying The Fugitive to this tune. Well done.
