Fast Cars & Airplanes - Otis Lee Crenshaw lyrics


Intro:
Well ladies and gentlemen you know we all miss elvis, you know we do deep inside, and all the other musicians like Hank and Janis and Jimmy and . . . for every musician who passed on up to heaven, generally due to poor physical maintenance there's another musician whose died and gone to heaven due to lawn and garden accidents. That's right. Quite a handful of them actually, like the drummer for Toto, God how we miss him. Jeff Porcaro was his name, who died just spraying weeds in his own backyard. Or Merle Watson, the great bluegrass guitarist who passed away in a similar agriculture related accident. Nobody's ever gonna write a song about these gentlemen so we thought we would. This is for all the men who fought the lawn . . . and the lawn won

Song:

Goodbye Jeff Porcaro, he won't be back tomorrow
Better drummer the whole wide world, will never see
He kept down the beat, but not those backyard weeds
Took a riding mower and strapped on a barrel of DDT
When a toxic cloud just carried him away, spewing from the only drum he never really learned to playyy . . .
Chorus:
It wasn't, fast cars and airplanes, it wasn't cocaine or drugs,
It wasn't, alcohol binges it was shrubbery n' bugs
Gave the world all the music, that he had inside
an' then he got on his Flymo and rode up to the sky

It was around 3am Merle Watson took that spin
just to feel that country breeze in his hair
but he plowed into a tree . . . literally!
See the fatal factor, Merle was on a tractor
An' if that highway to heaven's filled with men who live too fast
At least Merle's on his tractor, making sure they can't get passed!

Chorus:
It wasn't, fast cars and airplanes, it wasn't cocaine or drugs,
It wasn't, alcohol binges it was shrubbery n' bugs
Gave the world all the music, that he had inside
an' then he got on his tractor and rode up to the sky

Well they weren't injects and needles, they were just tryin' to kill beetles when they got on their tractors and rode up, up, up to the sky

Awww up to the sky, awww roasana, aww baby
