James Blunt – Rocky Raccoon lyrics
Rocky Racoon, he was a fool unto himself
For he would not swallow, his foolish pride
Mind you, coming from a little town in Minnesota,
It is not the kind of thing a young guy did
When a fellow went and stole his chick away from him.

Now, Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
Only to find Gideon's Bible
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
To shoot off the legs of his rival

His rival it seems had broken his dreams
By stealing the girl of his fancy.
Her name was Magil and she called herself Lil
But everyone knew her as Nancy.

Now she and her man who called himself Dan
Were in the next room at the hoe down
And Rocky burst in and grinning a grin
He said Danny Boy this is a showdown

But Daniel was hot, he drew first and shot
And Rocky collapsed in the corner.

Da la la dum ba dum da da (3x)
The doctor walked in stinking of gin
Proceeded to lie on the table
The doctor said "Rock, you met your match, Son."
Rocky said, no it's only a scratch
I'll be better soon Doc, I'll be better soon.

Well come on Rock, come on Rock.

Rocky Raccoon fell back in his room
Only to find Gideon's Bible
Gideon checked out and he left him no doubt
To hell with good Rocky's revival.

Da la la dum ba dum da da (6x)
