CHARLIE, THE MIDNIGHT MARAUDER (Bagby / Davis) The Limeliters Calling car 41 Calling car 41 Investigate a code 7 At 116 west 14th St. and report Looks like Charlie's at it again Oh Charlie was raised in the city He scoffed at the suburban life Til satan disguised as a salesman Bewitched and bewildered his wife She heard of the pleasures of rural life With barbecues under the trees And so for a mere forty thousand He purchased their dreamhouse with ease He rose before dawn every morning To dreamily fall into line (yawn) And follow that bumper before him (Beep Beep) To be on the job before nine His dreamhouse of crumbling stucco Was more like a nightmarish load His weekends were spent in hard labor He dug and he pruned and he mowed One night an electrical failure Blacked out every street in the track Our hero drove up in confusion But couldn't locate his new shack Each crackerbox looked like the one next door As far as the eye could see He cursed to himself as he pondered Now where in the world can it be He searched til a door looked familiar Than tried out his key in the lock The door open wide and he entered Poor Charlie was on the wrong block He strode to the couch of his sleeping love He kissed her and backed off in fright The girl he had kissed was a stranger Who screamed and ran out in the night They caught him a few minutes later Still rooted and shaking with fear They called him the midnight marauder And put him away for a year And put him away for a yea-ea-ear And put him away for a year They called him the midnight maurauder And put him away for a year When a salesman is taunting suburbia He's doing it purely for help Remember the story of Charlie And tell him to move there himself And tell him to move there himsel-el-elf And tell him to move there himself Remember the story of Charlie And tell him to move there himself (Contributed by RumandCocaCola44 - March 2006)
