The Lyrics

I had a friend was a big Cassanova
Back in high school
He could throw his sweet smile at girls
Make them swoon, faint an' drool boy!

Saw him the other night at this roadside bar
He was all alone
Lookin'
Down an' out

We went back inside
Sat down
Had a few drinks
But all he kept talking about...

Was...

Glory holes
Well they're worth a try
Glory holes
Yeah instead of a young girl try
Glory holes
Glory holes

Well there's a girl that lives up the block
Back in school the boys loved how she would wink

But now ev'ry Friday she'll stop by
That same roadside bar
An' have herself a
Coupla' drinks

Her and her boyfriend Dicky
Well they split up
I guess it's
Two years
Long ago

She just sits around
Thinkin' about the old times
She says when she feels like cryin'
She just laughs and goes back to...

Those...

Glory holes
Well they're worth a try
Glory holes
At the height of a young girl's eyes
Glory holes
Glory holes

That old man worked 20 years on the line
And they let him go
Now everywhere he goes out lookin' for dates
Girls just tell him that
He's too old

He drinks fine, 9 year old, scotch he's been buying at that
Same old sleazy bar by the roadside
Where he just sits on a stool
'Til he goes down the hall
Where I can tell what's on his...

Mind...

Glory holes
Well they're worth a try
Glory holes
By the sink where they strung that sign
Glory holes
Glory holes

Now I think I'm going down to that bar tonight
And I'm gonna drink 'til I
Get my fill

And I hope when I get drunk
I don't go around slinkin' around back
But I
Probably will

Yeah, just standin' there trying to recapture
A little of the
Glory of

Well time slips away
And leaves you with nothin' mister but
Feelin' sorry that you're alone...

Glory holes
Well they're worth a try
Glory holes
Never thought in this world I'd try
Glory holes
Glory holes

Glory holes
Well they're worth a try
Glory holes
Yeah instead of a young girl try
Glory holes
Glory holes

(...ad lib repeat to fade...)
All right!
Oh yeah!
Come on now!
Woo-hoo!

By the way, you asked, so this is an experiment---- Back in the rural farmland days When people lived so far away Family and friends alike Would have to spend the night And the boyfriends with their briefcases Would have to share the sleepspace With the daughter of the house (Which in those days was alright) But they also had a custom Which sufficed to keep the lust in Papa laid a hunk of timber In the middle of the bed And the couple wouldn't cross it For Dad's shotgun in the closet Guaranteed that the most daring kept their heads (The boyfriend would accept it thusly) My love for you can overcome this bundling board Why just to lie beside you Is it's own subtle reward I know that to hop over Would be a big mistake There's more than just our honor here at stake So with the dawn at breakfast time Dad would say the expected line "Well, how'd you sleep, boy?" Then he'd watch for a reaction And he would answer "Sir, just fine!" And daughters' eyes would give no sign And Dad would be assured of no infraction And so it was in those old days When truth and honor had a place And people could control the way they play And this young man who passed the test Who proved to Pop he was the best Could later to his girlfriend proudly say My love for you did overcome that bundling board Why just to lie beside you Was it's own subtle reward I'm sure your Pop is glad That we stayed on the side we should But I'm glad we found that knothole in the wood My love for you did Overcome that bundling board...

Thank you, Guy. I decided to have a little fun by going from the subtle to the ludicrously obvious.
Paul Wooten - February 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Subtle or obvious, still adds up to 5" through the old glory hol' LMAO dude. Keep 'em cummin' lol

One of these days, I'll learn how to make columns.
Guy - February 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Rick, No time like the present. You can column the text in these comment fields by doing the following:

I can't display the characters that tell HTML to insert a carriage return/line feed. They are the greater and less than signs with the letters BR between them, no spaces. It takes four characters to make a carriage return /line feed. Start with the less than sign. (This is the upper case character on the bottom row of your key board that is shared with the comma). Character 2 and 3 are BR. Character 4 is the greater than sign. (This is the upper case character on the bottom row of your key board that is shared with the period,) Put this string anywere you want a new line to begin. The BR characters are not case sensitive. If you want double spacing just use two BR sets, etc.

Try it.

The only recording I have is old and unproduced, I have many others that I'm much more proud of. I sent you some, Johnnie, tell me you're tired of those and I'll send more.
