Talkin' Ballistics Blues
Spuds flyin' round the great blue sky,
The sheriff he stares and wonders why,
Seems some boys was launchin' potatos,
Beans, corn, rice and big tomatos.
Tag: Stuff like that's dangerous...mashed potatos could mash skulls.
Seems these guys had built a cannon,
Into it their garden they was jammin',
Sheriff said "Hey boys, that's against the law."
"Flyin' vegetables aren't allowed!"
Tag: Not in this county...not in the one your shootin' em into either.
Ole Sherrif sat and waited for an excuse,
(But there just ain't one for launchin' refuse)
But them boys knew they was mighty clever,
They huddled up and put their heads together.
Tag: We're helping the needy sir!... Sendin' em to hungry kids in Ethiopia!
Well that was all a few years back,
Now one of those boys decided to crack,
Shot himself into space in a cement mixer,
Came back down with blood a whole lot thicker.
Tag: Jellied idiot...Gravity loves stupidity.
Now we sit and laugh and wonder why,
Some idjut would shoot himself into the sky,
But even though our warnings he would not heed,
It still had a better chance than the X-33!
Tag: Skunkworks....makin' stuff that don't work.
