I would very much like the words to,"I Just Don't Look Good Naked Anymore".
At my present time of life and physical condition, I feel that the sentiment it expresses would be quite fitting.

I think I remember Kendall singing it on a HearMe session a long time ago. He should be able to provide it to you.

I, too, seem to remember Kendall singing this song, most recently at our sea songs gathering at the China Trading Company in Portland, like some recurring nightmare.

Thanks 'Spaw. I'd seen that one. It only has one verse tho. I'm lookin' for the whole song. I haven't been able to find a lyric site either. I'll have to PM Kendall.
Sarah, thanks for the suggestion but no thanks. I have no intention of exposing my obvious shortcomings to the whole forum in a visual format. Words are bad enough.
"bare facts " indeed! Harumph!!!

Kendall's in Florida right now. It may be a while before he sees your PM. Lucky guy - we are looking at an incoming blizzard with the potential for 1 1/2 feet of snow!!!!! I saw the Captain sing this at a party with a bunch of kids ranging from maybe 10 and up. They were so funny laughing at him and the looking sheepishly at their mothers to see if it was OK. Kendall does it with such an impish grin, it's hilarious.

The correct title is "Trucker's Lament: I Just Don't Look Good Naked Anymore." It was written by Dick Feller & Sheb Wooley, and recorded by Sheb Wooley. It is included on the compilation "Kickin' Asphalt," Music Mill CD #70014, 1999.

It is also on the only Dick Feller CD (as far as I am aware) titled 'Centaur of Attention' Cyberphonic/Hendersonville TN no #. This CD was somewhat of a disappointment for me because it has re-recordings of Feller's novelty stuff only and none of his astute or poignant songs like 'Cry for Lori', 'No Word on Me', 'Just Short of the Line', 'Sum of Marcie's Blues' etc. A real pity. However, there is a reprise of his excellent 'Lord Mr Ford' and a 'New Credit Card Song'.

Subject: Lyr Add: I JUST DON'T LOOK GOOD NAKED ANYMORE
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 09 Jul 02 - 01:29 PM

Transcribed from a recording by "Ben Colder" (Sheb Wooley) at YouTube:

I JUST DON'T LOOK GOOD NAKED ANYMORE
Sheb Wooley, Dick Feller

1. I stepped out o' the shower an' I got a good look at myself.
Pot bellied, bald headed—man, I thought I's somebody else!
I caught my reflection in the mirror on the back o' the bathroom door.
I just don't look good naked anymore.

2. So I'm goin' upstairs and turn my bedroom mirror to the wall.
I hung it there back when I was trim an' tall.
I'd stand there an' smile an' flex an' strut until my arm got sore,
But I just don't look good naked anymore.

[BRIDGE] I used to go out with the girls. I loved 'em one an' all.
Now they don't get very close to me, afraid that I might fall.

3. I went to see my doctor for my annual medical exam.
Standin' there in the buff, when suddenly he said, "Man!"
I said, "What is it, doc? Some fatal disease? Man, I need to know the score."
He said, "No, you just don't look good naked anymore."

[BRIDGE] Me an' Mona had a dancin' style. The folks said it was unique.
Now it's only when we're back to back, we're dancin' cheek to cheek.

4. I went down to a nude beach for some seaside fun.
Stretched out in my birthday suit, soakin' up the sun.
Somebody yelled, "There's an ol' white whale washed up on the shore."
Sure, I just don't look good naked anymore.

[TAG] Yeah, my arches fell, my waist went to hell, an' my butt is draggin' the floor.
I just don't look good naked anymore.

I thought it was Bill D who sang this song. Perfectly fitting for both Bill D and Kendall, I think. Maybe they should do a duet....

I'm digging up old threads tonight. This song was used as a forwarded email back in the earlier part of this century. I remember my parents got a big hoot out of it. It shows an older couple, she, in a lawn chair, and he, mowing. Does anyone have the original email?
