Here's our cover from Fred Cole's amazing 1975 band, ZIPPER. Fred was cool enough to give us the correct lyrics shortly before he passed away. This cover was intended to be part of a compilation that unfortunately was never completed.


I been hooked on your sly
frozen to your gear
had so many women
but I never had this fear
I've been hooked and taken easy
kidnapped for the ride
I wanna hide behind the candle
with a six gun 'tween my eyes
chorus: so before it's restored let it freeze

I've been shakin like a rattler
with them skeeters in a swamp
when the mojo come to shiver
ya gotta kiss me til I'm hard
I've been barefoot on the fire
hungry on the spit
when a grizzly were my daddy
but it couldn't make me quit
Can you hear what I'm saying to you, woman?

Some kind of formulation want to give my spine a break
wanna do me like some plucker
who's been BBQ'd too late
wanna burn me in my motor
til my gear begins to fry
but the rooster pecks the chicken
and the chicken always cries
