A single from Fire Chief Charlie's upcoming album "West"


Sing us a song about Bull-Hammer.
It’s a good one, make it up son!
He took all the teeth from the cadavers
of bad men who broke the law.

Below his shadow grown folks would cower,
their hearts beating like cowards’.
In fifteen minutes he’d swim two channels
with his hands tied to his gun.

Don’t you know the model is run?
Summer-day ladies won’t have such stuff.
Don’t you know the people want love, love, love?

"Could he be gentle, that Bull-Hammer?"
we ask with optimism.
He chased off the blues with great fields of lavender flowers and his vision.

Don’t you know the formula’s done?
All the old tappers have heard enough.
Don’t you know the people want more, more, more?

Go and leave your wagons at home,
there’s no fire.
Go and leave you ladders at home,
it’s not desire for hire.

Soon the distraction of his bloody action
forced a mean streak through the media!
Who needs protection from dentured criminals?
And who’s sleeping with the dentist?

Don’t you know the song’s gotten cold?
Plastic-cab fellows don’t want that fluff
when everybody’s falling in love, love, love?

Go and leave your heartache at home,
you’re full of desire to go higher.
Go and leave the bad days alone,
you’re full of desire.

We all along have loved Bull-Hammer,
the tough lug giving bear hugs
to all the people who scamp and scatter
like ants under the rug.
