Primus - Lee Van Cleef Lyrics




Got a badge, a Red Rider at Rocket Camp out at (?Nohack?) Peak
Lookin' for jailbirds left and right tryin'a knock 'em up out the trees
Everybody I know's watchin' Clint, we all like watchin' Clint
Hi Hi Hi Hiiiiii
All the li'l Snaps wanna be like Clint; they all wanna be like Clint
But I wanna be like Lee Van Cleef; ya know I wanna be like Lee
Whatever happened to Lee Van Cleef; whatever happened to Lee?

A yellow Studebaker with a 302, I see the GREEN NAUGAHYDE
He put a coupla dings in that pick-up truck, a few more dents in his pride
At Hilltop Drive-In they're watchin' Clint; they all like watchin' Clint
Hi Hi Hi Hiiiiii
All the babies scream they wanna see ol' Clint; they all wanna see ol' Clint
But I wanna see Lee Van Cleef; ya know I'd like to see ol' Lee
Whatever happened to Lee Van Cleef; whatever happened to Lee?

(Just a lil ol' tease o' Ler...)

Now the Studebaker's gone, Lee's passed on, Clint's still sharp as can be
Hilltop Drive-In is an Auto Mall, but no one's built over Lee
He'll get a kick outta watchin' Clint, we all get a kick outta Clint
Hi Hi Hi Hiiiiii
But Lee never been none quite like Clint, there's really only one Clint
But I really did like Lee Van Cleef; I sure did really like Lee
Whatever happened to Lee Van Cleef; whatever happened to Lee?

(Now for the full Ler experience...)

We still get a kick outta watchin' Clint; we all get a kick outta Clint
Hi Hi Hi Hiiiiii
There ain't never been one quite like Clint, there's really only one Clint
I always did like Lee Van Cleef; always did like Lee
Nobody's steely like Lee Van Cleef. Whatever happened to Lee?
Whatever happened to Lee Van Cleef? Don't forget about Lee.

    *Musical Trap Ensnaring*
    I'm telling you, it's mostly a music industry based on mountain men working for Hudson's Bay Co. and trapping people like beaver for hats back home. Just listen to the music and lyrics...do they all use that simple conceptual trick? Nah, but I've heard some possibilities. Some use early Egyptian or Greek bait or other high concepts and wait. They just build traps and lay them. Oh, the trap frees on the right after you lift the spring. LOL
