P ur absolut product. This one was written by professional songwriters Johnny Cymbal and Austin Roberts. Roberts actually used to write songs for Hanna Barbera, including Josie and the Pussycats. I think the Pussycats turned this one down, and the kids from Jabberjaw were going to record it as ďIím Drinkiní Canada Dry (Until Iím Old Enough to Score Some F*ckiní Horse and Cover Up the Needle Holes with a Kickass Shark Tattoo)Ē when the Burrito Brothers swooped in and sent it sailing right up the tight top 40 country chart. Honestly, itís a good tune if you like country music. Wait a minute, I mean IF you like country music. There, thatís better. Because you probably donít. Not that country music isnít clever, itís just kind of depressing. For example, this song is about a guy whose woman decides she wants to become a singer so he follows her on tour, only to lose her and drink away his sorrow hoping sheíll come back to him. Or, short of that, his testicles.
