A "Trip For Biscuits" is a term con men use for wasted effort; a con that doesn't pay off. I find this stuff fascinating. This song is full of terms that are strange and colorful to me, actually it almost wrote itself...


Lila got distracted on the Blow Off
The cardinal rule of being on the run
Never get your honey
Where you get your money
Never mix romance with a gun

Jimmy was a Roper on the west side
Blackie had a handle on the Crew
Tossing Broads and Crazy Larry
Swinging Priests and Pregnant Mary
The only life these Bunnies really knew

For a little Flash
We can score big cash
Just Light the Flame
On the Badger Game
If you never risk it
Life's a Trip For Biscuits
You never get rich
Off the Jamaican Switch

Our girl Lila was a looker
Just not the brightest in the hall
But her hustler's education
Explained the situation
And Lila wouldn't stay behind the eight ball

The Hook was a line from a Penny and Dime
And some Babe Gam
The flash was a little cash
From the Butter And Egg Man
The shade was a Classic Fade
With a perfect Angle
Then they heard the Chicago Lightning
And they had to Dangle

On the coast of Argentina
In the town of San Major
There's a statue of a lady
Who could be somewhat shady
And no one knows what the hell it's for

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.
