Well, it is...


Eddie was a good boy
The kind you seldom find
Ask any kind of favor
Eddie didn't mind
A ride to do some shoppin'
A ten to pay the bill
You need a friend to watch your back
You know that Eddie will

One night in late September
We all jumped in Eddie's car
And made our weekly visit
To the local girly bar
Amid the smoke and hustle
She came slinkin'cross the room
As soon as Eddie saw her
She made his heart go boom

She said her name was Lila
But her friends all called her Star
The sleekest, freakest anything
To ever hit this bar
Eddie bought a lapdance
Then a trip through the private door
And that was that, she'd sprung the trap
Ed had to have some more

A weekend in the islands
Picnics in the park
She told him that she loved him
But kept him in the dark
About all her other lovers
She told Eddie they were friends
When he ran out of mon she stopped the fun
And told Eddie "That's the end!"

Poor Eddie, there's one thing I know
You can change her name but
You can't save her soul
It's Hard To Get A Stripper Off The Pole

Consider this a fable
A cautionary tale
Remember the Black Widows
Who use and eat their males
Some say the Widow's victims
Deserve just what they get
And Eddie boy will tell ya himself
It's just a suckers bet

Poor Eddie, I guess now you know
You can fix her car but
You can't fix her soul
It's Hard To Get A Stripper Off The Pole

Hey Eddie, can't forget that Ho
He gave her his heart but
She took his soul
It's Hard to Get A Stripper Off The Pole

My music is a mix of many different influences; from the country and western I heard as a child to some stuff I heard yesterday.
I write songs primarily to make you shake your money maker. I'm not deep, and I'm certainly no virtuoso. I just want you to have a good time.
