Wild Wild West

This song is not in a battle

A crazy, fun filled song comparing the wild west to western culture by Stylish Headphones, Milady.

Recorded on rather vintage equipment.

Note that I did not record this song myself, and it was handled by other band members, I joined afterwards. However, I was involved in post EQing and balancing.

Tumbleweed a'moving like a soccer ball
In a barren death trap wasteland with nothin' at all
That's where I'll settle
That's where you'll watch me fall
That's where we'll settle
A future mini-mall.

Since there is a sign, we built a railroad track
With the help of migrant labor bustin' up their back
But do not settle
Build on to the coast
Put the peddle to the mettle
Unitl we have the most

Representation leads to massive taxation
For the brothel and her loyal fans
That's the way it goes on with the show
In the land we call the wild west
Company insurance takes a cowboy's reassurance
when it comes to the O.K corral

Me and my gal sailing with LaSalle
In this land we call the wild west

Ships come from Europe
Serfs hit the surf
And Indians threaten to sue
Ships' sailing west
Do not stop on the tracks
Cause now the railroads moving west too
Use the pacific, use the atlantic
God save the queen of the bygone
Wild wild west

Is colonizin the world
All the boundaries will be swirled
I hope you like fun, cause they've got a gun
If you're free
Thier job's not
Spillin the blood
Your land's
Just a trade hub
Economic dependency
That'll make you see
How to be
Sonic bubonic

Industrial liberation
In a massive congregation
In the middle of a Baptist church

Santa fe to salt lake city
Asking for your pity
She's the queen of the wild wild west

Women's liberation
In a massive presentation
To the rival gangs of the old west

Stay next to me manifest destiny
She's the queen of the wild wild west

Coffin or cremation
Taxidermy recreation
Post a gunfight in a theater

Now I'm dead with the rest but
 not the best of the best
I fell of the wild wild west

Doo doo doo
I am frenchmen I am best
(broderick french rant)
Charles darnay
Hoo hooo hoo

haha this song really makes me laugh. I love the western style piano through the whole thing, and the recorder, and the crazy vocals. Definately a unique style. But intriguing all the same.

woah - I love this, retro sound (zappa-esque)- takes you on crazy journey for sure!  The changes are fantastic..love the lyrics (but maybe they seem a little squished in places).  Sounds like a lot of fun to record - and it's just quirky enough for me to download

I'm glad you like it. No, I had no part in the making of this song, it was mostly the creative genius of the lead guitarist combined with the craziness of the bassist. And actually the guitarist wanted to discourage downloads...so he's probably not going to be too happy with me, lol.

Good, fun song - it's been well constructed but not so well recorded and that's a real shame because it could really rock if it were cleaned up.

Lyrically it's excellent, the vocals can't quite keep up with the dynamics though.

Still I enjoyed listening.

After our last band meeting, I updated the lyrics of this one too, several lines were incorrect;(I was just guessing from the sound of things) and now it makes much more sense.

for instance, "since there was a sun he" changed to "since there is a sign we"
and "mighty labor" changed to "migrant labor" and "soft enough creation" changed to "coffins or cremation"
