A Horse With No Name
(Dewey Bunnel)


On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There were sand and hills and rain
The first thing I met was a fly with no buzz
And a sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can't remember your name
'Coz there aint no one to a give you no paine

After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told
Of a river that floated
Made me sad to think it was dead

You see...

After nine days I let the horse run free
'Coz the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There were sand and hills and things
The ocean is a desert with its life underground
And the perfectest sky is above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

You see I've been...
10 Knots
My kitchen floor started crackin'
And out jumped a man
Big, red & horny
I was shakin' the devil's hand
You got a hell of a reputation
And thats the name of my game
And Ive been diggin' all night
Coz I heard your name
Got a mean main reason have no fear
But first we'll play some poker
And have a warm beer
Lets play a little poker
And have a nize hot beer

I will smash your windows n burn your mail
I tied 10 knots on the devils tail
I can eat a horse even chew a nail
I tied 10knots on the devils tail
D.A.D. wouldn't cross his trail
Coz I tied 10 knots on the devils tail
Hes the toughest man & he cant fail
But I tied 10 knots on the devils taaaaiiiiil

I sat down to the table
With the man that I once feared
He was drinkin hummin drinkin
And ascratchin' his beard
So we drank for about a fortnight
It seemed like some stupid test
Still I was sittin upright
Doing the things that I do best
But the poor devil looked a mess

I will smash your windows...

He was red
He seemed kinda pale
Then I tied 10 knots on the devils tail
I dumped him in his hole
Heard the echoes of his scream
Hey boyscout from below
Now tell me who's mean!

I won't smash your windows...

I'm so rough I spent summer in jail
'Cause I tied 10 knots on the devils tail
I'm so mean I could out-fart a gale
But I tied 10 knots on the devils tail
