The Lyrics

In memoriam, Frank Morrison "Mickey" Spillane, 1918-2006.
Well, this guy, Mickey Spillane
well, he didn't write no music.
But his writing was insane, hear?
And he sure knew how to use it.
Wrote "I, the Jury"
in such a fury
smelled like a brewery.

Well, he was a federal agent.
How he got his inspiration.
And it wasn't long he did it
but got quite an education.
What you're readin'
got lots o' bleedin'.
It's so bad
but it's so good.

Well, his books became some movies
tales he wrote about Mike Hammer.
Stacey Keach played him on TV.
And sent bad guys to the slammer.
In New York City.
It wasn't pretty.
It doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter.

(instrumental break)

Well, this guy, Mickey Spillane
well, he didn't write no music!
But his writing was insane, hear?
And he sure knew how to use it!
Wrote "I, the Jury"
in such a fury
smelled like a brewery!

Well, his books became some movies
tales he wrote about Mike Hammer!
Stacey Keach played him on TV!
And sent bad guys to the slammer!
In New York City!
It wasn't pretty!
It doesn't matter!
It doesn't matter!

(instrumental fadeout)
The wit and wisdom of Mickey Spillane: "I'm actually a softie. Tough guys get killed too early... I'm the most translated writer in the world, behind Lenin, Tolstoy, Gorki and Jules Verne. And they're all dead... I have no fans. You know what I got? Customers. And customers are your friends... Those big-shot writers could never dig the fact that there are more salted peanuts consumed than caviar... If the public likes you, you're good."
