Lyrics
Got a date with a high toned girl
The one that wears that bouffant curl
She means business when she flirts
So I polished up the Chevy with the fender skirts
Hopped in the car and stepped on the gas
I was layin' down rubber on the ole bypass
Out her window she did creep
We headed on out for Lover's Leap
Made a detour by the barbeque shack
Put twelve cold beers on ice in the back
Found us a spot in the Twilight Zone
When the light of the police shone

(And he said:)
"Oh, you jack leg, you
I got the goods on you
And your sweetie too, I caught in your car
With the stars in your eyes and your brains in the bottom of your shoes
You're a hot dog, ain't you now
You're the bulldog's big bow-wow
Got fuzz on your face, you're the ace with the sweaty brow

We headed on out for another spot
just down the road from the "Dash and Dot
Saxophones croonin' on the radio
And the moon was hangin' low
Fingernails tappin' on the windowpane:
It was her great big boyfriend Wayne
(And he said:)
"Oh, you ice cream, you
I got the goods on you
And my sweetie too, I caught in your car
With the stars in your eyes and your brains in the bottom of your shoes
You're a hot dog, ain't you now
You're the bulldog's big bow-wow
Got fuzz on your face, you're the ace with the sweaty brow

Sittin' in her parlor
Drinkin' Coca-Colas
We were spinnin' the wax
She put her hair up in rollers
She was filin' her nails on the davenport
When I thought she was ready for a little sport
Tripped on the rug
spilt my c**e in her hair
Split the seat of my britches
Put my foot through a chair
(And she said:)
"Oh, you Milk Dud, you
I've had enough of you
And your Chevy II
Go home in your car
With the stars in your eyes and your brains in the bottom of your shoes
You're a hot dog, ain't you now
You're the bulldog's big bow-wow
Got fuzz on your face, you're the ace with the sweaty brow
