Well, I drove out to a joint near Hackensack
Drinkin’ Miller Light and crankin’ Back in Black
She was dancin’ at a strip club called the “Body Shop”
And her beauty hit me like a damned karate chop

I felt lucky and I thought I’d roll the dice
Fill my lonely world,
With a midnight girl
Tell her that my name is
Sherwood B.
Sherwood B.
Sherwood B. Nice

Well, that dame was hotter than a solar flare
But my luck was colder than a polar bear
I heard she’d had congress with a lusty senator
Why would she care about a dusty janitor

She won’t want a bum like me at any price
I’m a workin’ man,
With calloused hands
Cuz my chain gang daddy called me
Sherwood B.
Sherwood B.
Sherwood B. Nice

She was movin’ to a song by Hoobastank
It put me under pressure like a scuba tank
I learned long ago that love is hard n cruel
Bein’ poor’s a crime and love don’t pardon fools

When I left she didn’t bother to look twice
I drove home,
All alone
Cursin’ that my name was
Sherwood B.
Sherwood B.
Sherwood B. Nice

I was just a Miller low life
With no friends and no wife
Blastin’ some old song by Doug Sahm
Cheap cigar stinkin’ like a bug bomb

That single wide was rockin’
I almost didn’t hear her knockin’
Well, she moved just like a cheetah
And she said her name was Rita

I say, hey Rita
Oh, Rita
I say, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, Rita
Oh, Rita

I said,
“You’ve been with the DC deep state
Why you want a greasy cheap date”
She said, “I’ve been broke and busted
And betrayed by those I’ve trusted

I’ve been a Hackensack pariah
Chained up in a Black Maria
Love has made us hard as leather
So, you n me should make some love together”

I say, hey, hey Rita
Oh, Rita
I say, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, Rita
Oh, Rita

I say, hey, hey, Rita
Oh, Rita
I say, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, Rita
Oh, Rita

There’s no music like Memphis’
It’s got mystery and the blues for emphasis…
