Hi there. I'm looking for the lyrics of "Hot Tub of Tears" by the Austin Lounge Lizards. I've searched various sights without luck. Perhaps someone out there can help. Thanks.

If no one else answers, I can dig through my files for this one. It is a minor classic. Perhaps, Earl should have been searching "sites" rather than "sights".;~)

Charley, I didn't find it. Lounge Lizard stuff is really hard to find, even at sites instead of sights. Although I gather the Lizards were a sight......(grin)

They're probably even more of a sight now. Lounge Lizard page here

I have this tape SOMEplace. (I might find it again this decade.) All I can remember of the song is the chorus.

I can't help with the tune but here are the lyrics to share:

HOT TUBS OF TEARS
(By Austin Lounge Lizards, circa 1983, from their liner notes)

Those California girls are best, they say.
That West Coast lifestyle steals your heart away,
But, surfer girl, our love wiped out, and now I'm so blue.
I cry hot tubs of tears over you.

CHORUS: I cry hot tubs of tears over you,
I can't eat a bite of tofu.
I've given up tai chi and group therapy too.
I cry hot tubs of tears over you.

Our love was an expressway from the start,
And you took the fast lane to my heart,
But now my eyes, like LA skies, are smoggy and damp.
Why did you take the nearest exit ramp? (CHORUS)

You told me goodbye at the beach.
You fed me on white wine and quiche.
Now I know, my dear, that since we've been apart,
Acupuncture won't cure a broken heart.

FINAL CHORUS: I cry hot tubs of tears over you.
I can't eat a bite of tofu.
I've given up tai chi and group therapy too.
I cry hot tubs of tears over you,
Big redwood hot tubs of tears over you!


Cheerily,
Charley Noble

On the back cover of the vinyl Creatures from the Black Saloon, it's credited to Michael Licht.

Definitely written by Michael Licht of Washington, DC. Mike was the upright bass player in our band Orange Line Special and we also covered his song on our CD "Bluegrass City."
