FLIBUSTED

BY TOM BRIGGS

Sung to the melody of Ray Charles’ “Busted”


Me and my gal on a Saturday night, got Flibusted.
We went out to dine, ‘cause the place looked so fine, but got Flibusted.

The salad was old, and the ‘taters were  too,
The  sky high wine surely tasted like mildew.
The strawberry desert was turning blue, and we got Flibusted.

We left that red-walled place without a goodbye, ‘cause we got Flibusted.
The stone-faced owner so mad and the half bald waiter so sad, and we was near busted.

We ain’t never going back to that chandeliered place,
With  the rubber fish on display and wine that’ll ruin your day.
Take my advice and stay far far away, cause you’ll get Flibusted.

I’m telling you now we ain’t never going back
I swear the bill almost gave us a collective heart attack
And we both got heartburn, enough to hit the sack.
Because we got Flibusted.

Just some small change left…

Burping something awful…

Let’s go  get pizza somewhere anyway…
