The Lyrics

A lawless frontier town where the women are having trouble with a gang of baddies.
All of their men have either been killed or have run away.
No joy...boy...you feel blue
You think more neck hangin' days are due
Gang of guys you all despise
Big in size...black hat guise
You don't know how you're gonna beat this crew
You'd only one man left but he shot through

You gotta get you a lawman
An' like no one else so maybe he'll keep you alive
You gotta get you a lawman
He better be stonkin', you're wantin' some bonkin' now

Oh boy...joy...he'll defend
He's a wow, ten out of ten
Can't be beat out on the street
Packin' heat...they're dead meat
The bad guys never stood a chance again
Like TV westerns it's the way to end

You've gone an' got you a lawman
An' like no one else so maybe he'll keep you alive
You've gone an' got you a lawman
You bet that he's stonkin', you're gettin' some bonkin' now

Think of his wife an' what she did to you
Your eyes are puffin' from the fist she threw
It was some swing I say you had it due
You really paid this time, she got her whip of leather an'...

You got a lash from his woman
Hurt like nothin' else an' made you wish you weren't alive
You got a lash from his woman
You needed some treatin', you took a bad beatin' there

Hired his friend, he had no special one
No need for Cupid he was up for fun
He gave it to you an' produced a son
Your man is in his prime, he's got his act together an'...
(An') he done a deal to gather other lawmen so you're safe an' sound
Now it's much better with no yobs in town
Coz rape is nil an' theft has gone way down
So now you've no real crime, they've got this town together an'...
(Got this town together an'...)
Got this town together an'...

The town is chock-full o' lawmen
The town is chock-full o' lawmen
The town is chock-full o' lawmen
But now with thrills so few...it's baddies you screw

Ahhhhh, Andy, I see you were true to that Todd comment the other day! Great, great song & parody! I'm on the Todd bandwagon. For now, I'll just say "Hello, It's Fives"..

Thanks Mark - Definitely. Good to know there are more Todd fans. I take it from your comment that you're going to do some more. The more the merrier. Alvin said a while back that he was a big fan as well, I think it's about time he did another (HINT, HINT ALVIN)
Thanks Alvin - I was inspired to do this particular song after reading your Vette/zooming one & thinking how well you did it
Thanks Leo - For me personally I rate pacing & rhyming with the original lyrics where possible above storyline. Sometimes at the expense of much funnier lines
Thanks AFW - Good to see you back
