So I purchased on iTunes the available tracks from BS11, and after listening to this one dozens of times, I am still having great difficulty understanding many of the lines. Does anyone else happen to know some of these lyrics? Can't find anything online when I search. Thanks!

I'd have a go at them if I had the song....

I actually quite dig the song - what I've heard of it. I didn't purchase it. But, it's got a fifties rock 'n roll vibe to it.

I only heard the brief sample. I'm going to wait, I'm going to wait, I'm going to wait...

The song is awesome. Indeed very 50's-esque.

I'm waiting because I'm kind of anal about hearing things in the context of the entire presentation.

True, I just couldn't help it in this case. There is another track available on iTunes (Odds and Ends as well), but it wasn't as memorable as 'Dress It Up'.

I really didn't want to purchase this one, but I caved and can't stop listening. I just came on here to try to type out what I was hearing in the lyrics, but I had waaay more blanks than I had actual lines :lol:

I noticed that someone transcribed them over at ultimateguitar. They sound close enough for me I guess. Such a bizarre song but it's still one of my favorites from BS11.

"Oh, mos' feet and it hang, can't you see?" I groan.
She says, 'Oh, wha' 'ts arright." I said, "Jesus, don't take it at all."
She's a past-cold beauty, but she can't light a cannonball.

Now, down by the river she's a-hop on her knees,
and I holler to my baby, yelling, "Please, please, please!"
Oh, then I hit her and doubt my chase at all.
Now, no hoax. Let's go! But it's that pure soul, and it's off the ball.

Now, honey, I'm makin' a hot to road.
Now I'm happy to leaving, but it's a heavy load.
I said, "Ah, my babe. She don't meet me no half at all."
Dress it up. Best to pick up, bub: better have it all.

Oh, let's shake it up.

Well, hot dog, goody me. Settle on a trail
Down apart my knees I can't find my kerry. Find a nail!
She old top these... oh, better hold mine up.
Please, let's go, 'n' I hope it don't interrupt.

Oh, do it again, now. One time for Bozo and his dog

I hope it come' easy; I hope it comes hard;
I hope I sit me down yon' sit a little a chicken yard.
Open up, ol' Henry. Get that boy on home.
Tell Bess momma, he's up 'n' gone too long.

Once again, now. Oh, sounds so sweet.

^Thanks for sharing that. Pretty nice stab at that untamed beast.

Oddly, they left out the one line I knew!

Oh, do it again, now. One time for Bozo and his dog
Hop, skip and jump away! Yay Yay yay yay...
