Lyrics
(Kinky Friedman, Van Dyke Parks)

An L.A. Coke-dealer, a Georgia faith-healer
A boy scout and a junked-out Joan Of Arc
And they've all come together through life's stormy weather
To the take-it-easy trailer park.

And head up high in my air-stream my life is a pipe-dream
My neon neighbors find me quite insane.
LiKe a world-weary sailor I've dry-docked my trailer,
I just call her the Ol' Battleship Maine.

Dear mom and dear dad
Life is happy, life is sad,
Love is easy when you, when you follow your heart.
Oh and that's why I came here,
There's no one to blame here
At the take-it-easy trailer park.

And There's ol' Aunt Jemima from North Carolina,
There's Uncle Ben and dear ol' Uncle Sam
And There's one who reminds me of the one I left behind me,
But frankly Scarlett, I don't give a damn ...

An L.A. Coke-dealer, a Georgia faith-healer
A boy scout and a junked-out Joan Of Arc
And they've all come together through life's stormy weather
To the take-it-easy trailer park.

Dear mom and dear dad,
Life is happy, life is sad,
Love is easy when you, when you follow your heart.
See them tears in the skies
See the stars in my eyes
At the take-it-easy, take-it-easy
Take-it-easy trailer park.
