The Spotlight Kid
Said the momma to the baby in the corn You are my first born You shall here on in be known as The Spotlight Kid And the mornin' cry of the rooster The baby lay alone And the old cow in the green grass Shed white tears in the red hot sun And The Spotlight Kid stood under the moon that evenin' Givin' her alibis and eatin' her a la modes And the green frogs croakin' around his abode And the mud cat pond by the old willow road All night the village waited and The Spotlight Kid never showed She was up on the mountain Tellin' her alibis and eatin' her a la modes Momma still knew she was the one She was the one who stole the pie from old Momma Eye Window bare rockin' chair groanin' like a grizzly bear And the ice cream searchin' high and low For his a la modes for his a la modes All night the village waited and The Spotlight Kid never showed She was up on the mountain tellin' her alibis And eatin' her a la modes
