Lard Ballad of Marshall Ledbetter Lyrics

Last updated: 12/22/2009 11:00:00 AM

666 Dunkin' Donuts
A 20" veggie pizza from Gumby's
Extra jalapenos on the side
And a case of Asahi Dry

I want to speak with Timothy Leary
Lemmy, Jello and Ice Cube too
Carton of Lucky's with filters
And bring a CNN news crew

Tallahassee, Florida
4am, June 14th '91
Capitol Building's occupied
Broke the glass, walked right inside

Wouldn't be advisable to enter
You don't know the number of hostiles
Or if anyone's got guns
Or if there's hostages

I just want to speak my mind
More to you than just one soundbite

Fashion decompo (?) man
Has something to say
This whole world is disturbing me
I wanna cut a rap record each month
And mail my little pinky to George Bush

Sharpshooters on surrounding roofs
Traffic blocked off by SWAT troops
Evacuate the people inside
Pretend we're CNN, say Leary's died

I just want to speak my mind
More to you than just one soundbite

12:45, he emerged unharmed
JD in one hand, in the other cigars
Hendrix T-shirt and his underwear on
Guess what, he never had no gun

Argh, oh
Where are my friends?
Where are you? Where are you?
I can;t believe it's come to this


I only broadcast my freakout to the world
I was a prisoner for 22 years
When I broke through that door I was free
Not to mention pretty damn lucky

Nowadays boy, you'd just get shot
