No lyrics yet. It was the flip side of a single called "I'm a Lucky Man".

Sent him a URL to a streaming mp3 of Ski King, a really corny 1959 hit about a water-skier...

I found these lyric online. I didn't check them against the audio file.


SKI KING
E. C. Beatty

Some people say this story is false, but others say it's true.
Fear not, old Ski King, 'cause, buddy, I believe in you.

The sun was a-shining. The water, it was smooth.
Ski King was in perfect form. Daddy-o was in the groove.

The pink Cadillac came sliding in with a big boat on the rear.
Ski King stepped out on the sand, said, "The great Ski King is here."

Ski King fastened on his skis. Fifty horses were getting warm.
The crowd let out a mighty roar: "Let's see that perfect form."

He strutted to the water's edge. He waved back to the crowd.
He pounded his chest like Tarzan would, and that made Daddy-o proud.

Daddy-o backed up close to shore. The rope was a perfect throw.
Ski King tied it around his arm and yelled, "Let her go, Daddy-o."

Daddy-o opened that throttle wide. Sounded like a swarm of bees.
All of that power from the fifty horses made Ski King lose his skis.

Poor Ski King was flying low like a porpoise up and down.
They circled the lake about four or five times. Daddy-o never looked around.

Daddy-o was driving that boat. Ski King was drinking the lake.
People were yelling at Daddy-o, "Stop the boat, for goodness sake."

Daddy-o finally stopped the boat. He pulled Ski King inside.
Poor Ski King had plenty of water but he sure had lost his pride.

Now, the moral of this story: Keep your neck out of the noose.
Be careful not to grab ahold of something you can't turn loose,
Of something you can't turn loose,
Of something you can't turn loose.
