The Lyrics

Everything's bigger in Texas
My wife turns stranger ever' freakin' day
She don't even dust anymore
And there's a cockroach runnin' through my legs
That's bigger than the beggar at the door

I was thinkin' maybe I should get some Raid
There's a whole freakin' house I need to spray
Just hope that it don't turn the rats mean
Steal my children, and run away

Raaaaiid, Raaaiid
A man needs some RAID

We herd them on the range
At times, they act deranged
And bold

A doctor's glove, you can't really love
That snappin' glove' , the doctor really shoves....
When will I see through this pain?

A while ago somewhere I bought some gin
And was watchin' monster movies once again
There on the big screen was that cockroach
He was fightin' off Godzilla with one hand

Raaaiid, Raaaiid
A man needs some RAID

When will I see it again?
