So Long, Georgie
by Dan Simpson

With Georgie at the wheel you could here the tires squealing
way up in my 24th storey penthouse
And before the night was over he’d be lying on the floor,
but he’d get right up and get behind the wheel again
There wasn’t much you could say, he’s gonna do it anyway,
he’s not the type to listen to your preaching
He’s heard it all before, he’s been around the block and more,
and he don’t care if you agree with what he believes in

And now I wave goodbye to my dear old friend
He falls down, rolls around, but he’s always there to help a crooked friend
Now the time is almost right, its about four minutes to midnight,
to stuff our pockets and belch as we’re leaving

Now Georgie he’s my pal, we’ve been friends for quite a while
I can’t say enough good things about him
And he really helped me out when he tore that sucker down,
and helped me claim the money for my children
Now you may not think its right to hedge your bets on a crooked fight,
but that’s because you’re the one whose losing
And believe me when I say its going to happen anyway,
so its best to own the deck if you’re going to be dealing

His sly smile gives me pride, he’s done good by me.
Its been a cushy ride, but you know them elections ain’t free
Well we got caught looking up her skirt but we finally hit the pay dirt, and I know the suckers true as sure as breathing

Goodbye wave to the sky, raise your hands and dance.
The next guy is still on my side so lets give him a fair chance.

Well the future’s looking bright, you know we’re going to be living high,
and they’ll never get back what they don’t know their losing
