WEASEL AND THE WHITE BOYS COOL
Rickie Lee Jones


Sal was working at Nyro's nook in downtown

Selling articles of congress to these people downtown

He was pretty sleezy when I met him

A weasel in a poor boy's wool


Sal lives in a black vinyl pen in New Jersey

Buys his meat from a whore next door

Wants it rare but he gets it well

A weasel on a short order floor


So, Sal, say good-bye to your mom and your dad

Sal, say good-bye to the barrio

Sal, say good-bye to your buddies and your pals

Angela, Perry and Mario


Kid Sinister with the Bus Stop Blues

A quarter could take you home

A dime could make a dream come true

But a weasel ain't got a dime for the phone

( Does a weasel got a dime for the phone ? )


So, Sal, say good-bye to your mom and your dad

Sal, say good-bye to the barrio

Sal, say good-bye to your buddies and your pals

Angela, Perry and Mario


You dancin' in the welfare lines, Sal

Actin' like some jerk-off fool

When we could lay out eatin' peaches on the beaches

A weasel in a white boy's cool

But we're all in a white boy's school

( Just like a weasel )
