Rooster Rag
(Robert Hunter/Bill Payne)

There's one line I remember
All the rest I forget
Somethin' about strokin' the rooster
Setting up a crooked bet

No concern of my own what you
Do, do or don't do
We got all this and heaven too
Tie me down and paint me blue

Don't need a shot
Don't need a booster
Ladies of the jury
Stroke my rooster
Don't complain
It's not my nature
Take my milkshake
Straight - no chaser

Rooster Rag
Rooster Rag
End up doin' that
Rooster Rag

End up doin' that
End up doin' that
End up doin' that
Rooster Rag

Mose don't you stroke that rooster
Step on back - step on back
It just serves to make him looser
Treat him right and he'll cut you slack

Tubal-Cain was the god of fire
He got doused - first good rain
Crossed the sea in a Goodyear tire
Wired up tight - feelin' no pain

Kings of Creation
In strict rotation
Saturday night
Flirting with loss
Of reputation
A paid vacation
Where dogs don't bite

Rooster Rag
Rooster Rag
End up doin' that
Rooster Rag

End up doin' that
End up doin' that
End up doin' that
Rooster Rag

No excuses - no regrets
Got back what I put out
Calling in all of my crooked bets
'Cept them few that's still in doubt

Leave this old world a better place
Paper chase - what a waste
A cut-off throw-switch just in case
You bite off more than a taste

Don't need a shot
Don't need a booster
Ladies of the jury
Stroke my rooster
Don't complain
It's not my nature
Take my milkshake
Straight - no chaser

Rooster Rag
Rooster Rag
End up doin' that
Rooster Rag

End up doin' that
End up doin' that
End up doin' that
Rooster Rag
