The Lyrics

Well, this is one of those hybrid, combined, "smooshie" or whatever you call 'em parodies - The structure and melody from the 'Stones "Angie" and the ideas from Roger Miller's "Dang Me"...extended out in a more serious vein than Roger's tune did...Yet another idea I had in the shower...I ought to keep track, lol
Dang me
Dang me
For me the end seems really near
Soon they'll
hang me
I'm gonna be dead soon, I fear

All my life I was a creep
Now I stare up at the tree
I will swing from in a while
Hang me
from tree
At least I'm going out in style

That tree; it sure is full
It ain't been trimmed in quite a while
I see
when they hang me
Those branches might block out the sky

Before I swing there on that rope
must admit I was a dope
I was a bastard, it was clear
Dang me
gonna hang me
Will be the end of me, I fear

[Instrumental break]

Oh, Dang me, I'm a creep
All my ladies - did mistreat
I thought I was a "Bad-Assed" guy
Dang me; Knew they'd hang me
when those ladies testified

[Instrumental break]

When those ladies told their tales
My best hope was "Life" in Jail
Verdict; it was cut and dried
Well, Dang me, Jury said to hang me
No one on that panel took my side
And when the Foreman said the vote was true
It punched a hole in my Denial

Dang me
I'm angry
Life I lived; I had no pride
Hanging me
Swing from that rope; my final ride

Good one, Paul. Did they by any chance use a new rope? lol 5's

Well, he said he "went out in style", Pat, so I suppose that would have to include a new rope, right? Thanks!

JB - Well, it was gonna block his view, after all ~ ~ ~ Agri, it seems to me that we are all "Danged" in the final analysis ~ ~ ~ Thanks!

Thanks, Macphisto...hmmm...what was it the "Lifer" in prison said when one of his old "bunky's" got sent up again and was assigned the Lifer's cell? Oh, yeah..."It's gonna be good to see yer back again, man." Hmmm....seemed funnier when I was thinking it up...Oh, well...anyway, Macp...good to see yer back
