Subject: Dan Hicks Lyrics Add
From: GutBucketeer
Date: 11 Feb 01 - 12:57 AM

I have been listening to some of my old Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks albums recently, and re-discovered how good they were.

Someone recently requested the lyrics for "Where's the Money". When I searched there seems to be a surprising lack of his lyrics on the web. Here is one site that has several songs:

I'll post some of the lyrics I have transcribed in messages that follow. If you have any, please add them too.

Subject: Lyr Add: SLOW MOVIN' (Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks)
From: GutBucketeer

Slow Movin' Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks Original Recordings

I'm movin' so slow,
don't you know,
I'm taking my time (I'm takin' my time)
Just glidin' along,
what's wrong,
with taking your time. (takin' your time)

For I know,
there ain't no place to,
Why run a race to.
There ain't no place to go…

It's like the circus in town
I'm on a merry go round
I'm in a movie show
But always
In slow motion
Got this notion
Gee my motion's slow.

Or maybe I'm on a star.
Each step is astronomical
Slow movin's got me this far.

To me it's so breezy
It's so easy
And my motion's oh so slow
Cause There ain't no place to go.

(Break)

It's simple to me,
Can't you see,
I'm taking my time (I'm takin' my time)
Just glidin' along
What's wrong
with taking your time (takin' your time)

For I know,
There ain't no place to.
Why run a race to.
There ain't no place to go…

And my motion's oh so slow…..

MOODY RICHARD
Dan Hicks And His Hot Licks - Strikin' It Rich

Moody Richard, he was always hangin' round
Moody Richard, was the biggest square in town
Moody Richard, he was always on the scene
But his presence never really meant a thing

Chorus:

He was an innocent bystander
Watchin' his time go by
Mister innocent bystander
Doesn't your time fly by

Moody Richard, never had a thing to say
But his silence didn't matter anyway
And his problem was an easy one to solve
Moody Richard never really got involved

Chorus:

But he's guilty of one crime
Must her ruin your life and mine
For he's always standing by
In the corner of your eye
Yes, he's guilty, guilty

Chorus (2 times)

Any particular favorites? I have all the lyrics from the great album, "Where's the Money', (as does anyone else who has that album). You are absolutely correct, JAB. Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks were, (and still are, I believe), one of the most entertaining, talented and unique bands to have ever come down the trail. I wish I had more of their stuff, but IMO "Where's the Money" is one of those ten albums that I would require once shipwrecked on that mythical desert island. Thanks, BlueJay

Me a fan too!

Such energy and laughter in the music. One of my favourites is 'the laughing song'

Cheers,

Dan's new CD is absolutely great!! Just out, it's called "Beatin' The Heat". It features guest artists; Rickie Lee Jones, Bette Midler, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits and Brian Setzer on guitar. This is some of his best material in years.

I've seen him in concert(small venues)several times and he is truly amazing, funny too!

Check out his web site, www.danhicks.com

BlueJay:

There was another recent thread requesting the lyrics for Where is the Money. Could you post them here ? I don't have that particular album/CD. It is on my list.

From: Modulator

WHERE'S THE MONEY

An Indian girl once said
While making Indian cornbread
The eagle flies   Take his advice let's go
                                                                Keep moving Keep moving

Safe Cracking Big Bob
Is on a heavy job
He heard a noise   Said come on boys let's go
                                                               Keep moving Keep moving

A horse was in a race
He could win show or place
He came in first    From out of thirst just to go
                                                               Keep moving Keep moving

Its like you've seen a cop
And you don't know know exactly want to stop
Its emotion lotion   That makes you want to go

Keep moving with the motion that'll make you wanna go!
Keep moving with the motion that'll make you wanna
Get in your row boat and go.

A truck driver once said
I've got a sleepy head
He took a pill   And had the will to go

Keep moving in the motion that'll make you wanna go!
Solo


And reasonably brought down
A clown could only frown
But after a while   He started showing his doh
                                               Where's the money Where's the money

And little Betty Lou
Had a date but didn't wanna screw
She changed her mind When slipped a dime or so  Wheres the dime?
                                                 Where's the money Where's the money

A real good friend of mine
Is busy doing time
He got real rank and asked the bank for some doh
                                               Where's the money Where's the money

Where's the money if you never ever give me nothing else.
Where's the money you just put it here and let me help myself.

A boxer's in the ring
He hears that bell go ring
He wins the fight with all his box of doh
                                               Where's the money  Where's the money

Is that a request for lyrics?

(When you ask a question, it's best to put it in the form of a complete sentence.)
