Boom, boom, boom, boom 
Boom, boom, boom 
Boom, boom, boom 
Boom, boom, boom 

Well, now, they often call me Speedo 
But my real name is Mister Earl 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

Well, now, they often call me Speedo 
But my real name is Mister Earl 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

All for meetin' brand new fellas 
And for takin' other folk's girl 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

Well, now, they often call me Speedo
'Cause I don't believe in wastin' time 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

Well, now, they often call me Speedo
'Cause I don't believe in wastin' time 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

Well, I've known some pretty women 
And that's caused them to change their mind 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

Well, now, some may call me Joe 
Some may call me Moe 
Just remember Speedo
He don't never take it slow 

Well, now, they often call me Speedo
But my real name is Mister Earl 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

Well, now, they often call me Speedo
But my real name is Mister Earl 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

Well, now, some may call me Moe 
Some may call me Joe 
Just remember Speedo
He don't never take it slow 

Well, now, they often call me Speedo
But my real name is Mister Earl 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

Well, now, they often call me Speedo
But my real name is Mister Earl 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

And now they gotta call me Speedo
Till they call off makin' pretty girls 
Umm-hmm-hmm 

Umm-hmm-hmm-hmm 
Umm-hmm-hmm-hmm 
Umm-hmm-hmm-hmm 
Umm-hmm-hmm-hmm
