Give me all your lovin,

All your hugs and kisses too!

 

Guess it was censored or something! :D I remember when I was two or three my dad would always play ZZ top because it was his favourite band at the time! He even had a huge beard at one point :eek: - I don't know where that photo has got to though :(

Shes really upset with me again,

I didnt give her what she likes.

I dont know what to tell her,

Dont know what to say.

Everything got funky last night.

 

She was really bombed,

And I was really blown away,

Until I asked her what she wanted,

And this is what she had to say:

A pearl necklace.

She wanna pearl necklace.

She wanna pearl necklace.

 

She gets a charge out of bein so weird,

Digs gettin downright strange.

But I can keep a handle on anything,

Just this side of deranged.

 

She was gettin bombed,

And I was gettin blown away,

And she held it in her hand

And this is what she had to say:

A pearl necklace.

She wanna pearl necklace.

She wanna pearl necklace.

 

Shes so cold, as pure as the driven slush.

And thats not jewelry shes talkinabout

It really dont cost that much.

 

She was gettin bombed,

And I was gettin blown away,

And she took it in her hand,

And this is what she had to say:

A pearl necklace.

She wanna pearl necklace.

She wanna pearl necklace.

Dusty played a late '60s Telecaster bass---dead ringer for an early P, and Fender's first stab as a 'reissue.'

 

They're killer basses, though the later versions with a humbucker bunged into the neck pocket sound entirely different.

 

And, yes, ZZ Top has mastered the 'double entendre' genre. :D

I saw them at Fitzgeralds (maybe a 1000 seat venue... mostly standing room...)

a few years ago. Some special engagement I was lucky enough to get and invite to. Twas a badass show.

 

Here's some'a my fav lyrics from them. :D

 

Ten Foot Pole

 

Tidify da, sinmah gough dah hep haing ding fum gogamamo.

Stry da fings thadd awondt oont do butt any il thang thad a wondt meeto.

Shees my nurirng my nu esit seten' ra mind at a ros reshoo.

I don loo kadang doo my net loohah leten meen you

 

Hmm, I wouldn't touch her with a ten foot pole.

I wouldn't touch her with a ten foot pole.

You just don't know what shape I'm in.

 

Try-da-fy thedit dern tasgoo

Itel dang ifl eeton if airs ron wichoo

Day me dy ron my nek

Thars a dang ana ding doo itan beegon

 

Shee kina sitn wita ly dou fang

Let it ang wit a itin imin babee

Ide oln lee pak da thangs yoodo

Letit ang ifen eeton wacha ron wichoo

I wouldn't touch her with a ten foot pole.
