Beerbelly, Beerbelly Get these mutts away from me You know I dont find this stuff Amusing anymore If youll be my bodyguard I can be your long-lost pal I can call you Betty And Betty, when you call me You can call me Al A man walks down the street He says, Why am I short of attention? Got a short little span of attention And, woe my nights are so long Wheres my wife and family? What if I die here? Wholl be my role model Now that my role model is Gone gone? He ducked back down the alley With some roly-poly little bat-faced girl All along along There were incidents and accidents There were hints and allegations If youll be my bodyguard I can be your long -ost pal I can call you Betty And Betty, when you call me You can call me Al Call me Al A man walks down the street Its a street in a strange world Maybe its the third world Maybe its his first time around He doesnt speak the language He holds no currency He is a foreign man He is surrounded by the sound, the sound Cattle in the marketplace Scatterlings and orphanages He looks around, around He sees angels in the architecture Spinning in infinity He says, Amen! and Hallelujah!
