Your Uncle Walter's going on and on
The voice of 50 years experience
You know he's been around the world
In his magical armchair
Now the spit's flying everywhere
Hey, hey, hey, hey (Your Uncle Walter's going on and on)
How could you leave me here so long with Uncle Walter
Your Uncle Walter saw who fired the shots
He's flown from South Africa
They beat themselves on the backs with chains
And 1 reclining chair
Now he's back to tell us what
They're getting rich with their mail order scheme
Oh, oh (Your Uncle Walter's going on and on)
How could you leave me here so long with Uncle Walter
Your Uncle Walter told me
Oh what a perfect world
If he was President now

He knows that in a moment
Teardrops in his armchair
Tobacco juice rolling down his chin
Hey, hey, hey, hey (Your Uncle Walter's going on and on)
How could you leave me here so long with Uncle Walter
