SWITCHBLADE MAN


WORDS & MUSIC: HANK ďHOLY ROLLERĒ RAY
EDITION JUMAR MUSIC, 1987


When the day is over and there is no more work to do
I put on my shiny shoes and my Sunday suit
I stroll along the avenue down to the park
See the boys and girls a-turtle doviní in the dark

 

I watch them a-hugginí and a-kissiní too
Thatís when my mind is gone Ďcause Iíve blown the fuse
The girls all laugh say Iím ugly as sin
But once theyíve felt my blade theyíd never laugh again
SWITCHBLADE MANÖoh yeah, thatís what I am
Iím a SWITCHBLADE MANÖoh yeah, thatís what I am

 

I had a date with Mary Jane
But when she laughed I took the blade again
It felt so good when she slipped away
With her mouth wide open and her face turned red
SWITCHBLADE MANÖoh yeah, thatís what I am
Iím a SWITCHBLADE MANÖoh yeah, thatís what I am

 

Now a raging mob is on my trail
They surely want to take my life away
I see a lot angry faces filled with hate
But before theyíre gonna catch me Iím gonna use my blade
Iím a SWITCHBLADE MANÖoh yeah, thatís what I am
SWITCHBLADE MANÖoh yeah, thatís what I am
Iím a SWITCHBLADE MANÖoh yeah, thatís what I am
Iím a SWITCHBLADE MANÖoh yeah, thatís what I am
