The Lyrics

i'm gonna tell ya a story 'bout...scary lou
a different kinda writer, wrote some loony tunes
it made that young man, rich
now, he's an old man, quaint
he's made a lot of money with the words, he paints

scary lou...he wrote 'bout drugs and pain
scary lou...he shot up heroin
scary lou...a chance, he seized, and became a big star
jumped from the velvets and went real far

solo album in seventy-two
makin' a fortune without his old crew
he conquered the itch, man
he halted his skid
dropped smack flat...and that old monkey fled

came back into town, about a week ago
bought myself a ticket, and sure dug his show
he's over fifty-five, lord, but not over the hill
did "waitin' for my man" and it gave me a chill

scary lou...he seeps into your brain
scary lou...i'd see that dude, again
scary lou...i was so pleased that he's such a big star
not very pretty but alive so far

scary lou
scary lou
scary lou
