Horns by Herbie One


Put the coaster down so you do not stain the wood grain
POur your offers down So you don't destroy his good name
She already waves she doesn't need a night cap
He feeling blessed like he sneezed in night mass

The red light flickers same time as the Light tower
Fog horn blows same tone as the bronze flowers
Gold coin standard hold up if you don't spend it
And if he goes in you could tell it's a life sentence

He has an outstanding landing towards meladrama
But it's more stunning than warrioress terachota
Choke the basil that is fuego then go and run the ididerod
Extra husky puppy sledding off with meridian

Strong man competition always ends with an eye gouge
Or a tongue extraction when the speakers lie down
Cmon you know it's hot when you wear it like a cow
They be acting donkey cause the mule has lost its plow

Corn fed bison strength the rite of passage
you have had been a slave, no I wasn't asking
Your profession is a trade more than half hazardous
Working at the mill is better than lumber jack sawing dust

Many hats she wore them to pretend to be a man
Cause that's the only way she could ever own a piece of land.
What is the barb wire for, to keep us out or keep you in?
what is a peep show, when we really wanna sneak you in?

Lynx and Bob cats, no better than the muskrat
Just because one has a fucking swirly mustache
If you keep pulling on my leg I might have to bobs your aunty
Plus she is actually indigenous and aware of her surroundings

My cousin is a townie that means he dresses mediocre
I only bring him around cause he counts the cards at poker
We ride all day and we make jokes about the worlds fair
Cause your inventions don't mean nothing to horn player

As long people are dancing and the hooch can warm my chilly knees
Then I can stumble to the red light and earn my second victory
Lose my first income but earn my reputation back
As the only boy to survive the sierra avalanche

Silver rush more lucrative when you have the extra bullets
I think my aim is off cause I thrown it when I should shoot it
Because I am neither a city slicker or a back creek ponderosa
but I reek of manzanita as I shift my Barbary Coaster

Bartender got me open like a shrink that pours the well off
In Sanitarium I went to visit Dr. Kellogg
The peanut gallery not the same as the nut house
The elephants in the room and he scared of a little mouse,

I'm gonna leave this place one day and I'm taking the coaster with me
It's not a souvenir it's a depiction of the city
And long after I'm gone this place will rot and rust
Spills my spirit over the floor and remember me by its must.
