Me and my brother, Jim, went to a restaurant one night
Through some other parties, we got into a fight

Shot all the way through me, they killed my brother Jim
Hard luck, hard luck, with me on the spot

The jury said it wasn't me, my brother Jim got shot
Jury said it wasn't me, it's my brother Jim got shot

SOLO

Well, my wife had a mouth big enough for a boat
She got frightened in her sleep one night and a mouse ran down her throat

Hard luck, hard luck, with me on the spot
Jury said it wasn't me, it's my brother Jim got shot

SOLO

Got me a cat and a piece of cheese and I placed it on her chin
Wife got frightened in her sleep one night and took the rat, cat, cheese and all in
SPOKEN: What an awful dose!
