lyrics

He was so mysterious
When he was still here
He’d act so very serious
But was he sincere
He was charming and disarming
He’d say things we wouldn’t dare
Draw a line he’d cross it
’Cause he simply didn’t care
He was a cut-up
And now he’s cut and run

Was he sarcastic
It was so hard to tell
It was simply fantastic
How he faked it so well
He’d come off as smarmy
But it was all snark
He was rightfully famed for
His inappropriate remarks

Oh yes his smart mouth was
Gonna earn him trouble and strife
He was cruising for a bruising
He’s our hero for life
He was a cut-up
And now he’s cut and run

One day he vanished
Where did he go
Someplace sunny and Spanish
Nobody knows
Lo deseo pero no lo tengo
Es él vaquero en México?
He was practically obsequious
Perfectly innocuous
Innocent but deadly
He was thoroughly obnoxious
Everybody misses him
But this bird has flown
Bad influence bad apple
He was bad to the bone

Oh yes his smart mouth was
Gonna earn him trouble and strife
He was cruising for a bruising
He’s our hero for life
He was a cut-up
And now he’s cut and run
