by Andy Pratt



Original Andy Pratt song


I need a big Black bodyguard
with me all the time
to keep away the creeps
always messing up my mind
I need a shell all around me
so i can go my way
and not have to see the horror
of the world everyday
everything goodbye

Always running running away
always running o here me when I pray
till my dying day

I was walking down lonely street
on a hot summer day
when I spied me a catfish
flying away
he said where you going buddy
what you want to say
i said I don't know what I want
I don't know what to say

Instrumental brea 1 and 2

And with my big Black bodyguard
I need a geek wall too
and people by my side
with the things I'm going through
It's not easy being contrary
to the Zeitgiest Fred
you attract enough attention
you might wind up dead
Harry keep your head

They're pushing on my body
with their death machines
and I need to be protected
do you know what I mean?

Instrumental break and fade
