Daniel Johnston – Sad Sac Tarzan lyrics

Sad Sac + Tarzan
Walking up at the mall
Up walked a girlfriend

Said you had the gall to bring my name up again
Looking for salvation
We had an ice cream soda
I said have you ever wondered
What became of Uncle Bill?

We was peeling potatoes
Bcak in World War II
And we was playing that rock 'n' roll
After school for you know who
Hidden from the public
It was behind the scenes
There was a relic
They called the purple haze

I was eating a taco
I looked across the room
I saw a girl in a red dress
She said she'd like to do me in
I left the waiter a tip
I scrambled for the door
I said you might have loved me
But now there's nothing more
She's always on my trail
She really likes to kill
I keep her lovely picture
On my window sill

I was a cowboy without a show
I was like the kind of guy
You'd never really know
You won't forget me
No mater how hard you try
And when it's my time to go
I'll wave goodbye

Sing yourself a melody, cry a tear of joy
