Old Velvet Nose
R.I.P. Warren Zevon, Sunday September 7, 2003

September 8, 2003

The excitable boy, he left today
He's taking a trip, only goes one way

His back is turned, looking down the path
Lawyers, guns and money, are in his past

A piano fighter, A mutineer
He sang it best, My ride is here


When your ride is here, you've got to go
Sing Jesus Mentioned and Mohammed's Radio
When your ride is here, you've got to go
Sing Werewolves of London and Ourselves to Know.

Old Velvet Nose, sits on the shelf
Willie's on the plate, Warren's at the gate

He'll sleep when he's dead, he used to say
Now Mr. Bad Example, has hit the hay


Good night Warren sleep tight sleep tight
Good night Warren we'll miss you
Hope you enjoyed every sandwich and your Mountain Dew
Good night Warren sleep tight sleep tight
Good night Warren we'll miss you.
