The Lyrics

I went on the wagon, got sued for big dough
I got myself in trouble with the insults I'd throw
Popin' off now when ever I could
Speech a little hostile, sail a couple catcalls of shocker crude
Dagos, Spicks and Heebs
I'd yell at all the people in the town
I'd call them jewboys, spooks and japs
With all their might they'd all try to track me down
And run me out of town

Passed by a buck just south of Mobile
Gave him the eye, chilled him with a hot jeer, I called him a jig-a-boo just for fun,
Drove over him near Memphis
I guess we should have shot him, he didn't even run
Darkies, micks and slants
I'd yell at all the people in the town
I'd call them jiggies, krauts and chinks
With all their might they'd all try to track me down
And run me out of town

I later tried scootin' and they caught me well
In some southern swamp mire
Three months later I'm a guy in trouble
And I'm being sued in a trial, oh yeah bought the farm in a bigot trial
I went on the wagon, got sued for big dough
I got myself in trouble with the insults I'd throw
Popin' off now when ever I could
Speech a little hostile, sail a couple catcalls of shocker crude

Yeah, I'm offended too--What the hell does "Popin' off" mean? Is that some sick Catholic thing?
