The Tubes - Strung Out On Strings lyrics

No one made me do these things I've done
I did it 'cause it seemed like fun
So don't waste your time with talk of other things
I'll only talk about my thing I have for strings

I got a 6-string Stella on Christmas day
And my mama bought it used so my dad could play
Well I picked it up and played a little Party Doll
I forgot about girls, I gave up baseball

But I never dreamed how far
I'd go with that guitar
Gave this fat boy wings
Strung out on strings

More than any Buddy Holly, Buddy Knox I idolized
In a 6-string rock dream rockabilly lullaby
I'll be playing with the Wailers soon
When I get myself a new guitar
Gonna earn that money
Workin' in a go-go bar

But I never dreamed how far
I'd go with that guitar
Gave this fat boy wings
Strung out on strings
Strung out

Well I made a few records before I made this one
And I made a little money
You know I hope it's only just begun
If I ever have a kid and he's a boy
Gonna tell him one thing
I'll say, "Buy yourself a marimba!
Don't let me catch you pickin’ strings"

I never dreamed how far
I'd go with that guitar
Gave this fat boy wings
Strung out on strings
Just strung out

You'll never know
How far you'll go
