Rusty (Champion Thrust)

This song is by The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and appears on the album Let's Make Up and Be Friendly (1972).

(A party with a babble of conversational voices, soft piano playing and a phone ringing)

"Oh Whitey"
"I'll take it


"Oh dear, did he fall over or what?"

"You wouldn't believe it."
"I hope he's all right."
"They only hired the glasses anyway."
"That frosted effect if just stunning, don't you agree?"
"Oh I do."
"Have you heard the latest about Rusty?"
"No, what's happened?"
"Well, I hear Rusty's been holed up in Vasselino."
"I thought he was run out of Vasselino a fortnight ago."
"No he go plenty of stocks in."
"Well, too much."
"You hear so many crazy things

There, in the corner."
"Oh, is that her?"
"I think Rusty's lost it for sure this time."
"No? It's so sad."
"I think he's finally blown it."
"It's finished?"

(Singing in background) Oh Rusty, you done me wrong.

(Monologue)
Oh, gee Rusty, this is me.
Oh Rusty, here I am. I know you told me never to write you 'all at home but geez I just can't help it, please don't get sore. Oh Rusty I miss you so, it's been so long since you called, what's happenin' honey?
Maurice is throwing one of his parties, so here I am. I know you told me to stay home an' not come out till at least the hair grew back but I get so lonesome on my ownsome. I just had ta, had ta come out. It's all over town that you left me but I know yah ain't, so I don't care.
Don't you worry none about what folks round here are sayin' or thinkin' about yah, it just don't matter.
Just keep cool Rusty.
Course I get sore sometimes about that tattoo you made me get done but that don't mean nothing, why that's just my foolish pride.
Honey that shouldn't come between us. Geez that's the brand I use anyway so why get sore.
Oh Rusty.


Gee, do you remember the cab night ride? With all the room inside and all the pictures and all those faces? Did you meet all them people and did you see all those places?
And then you found me and baby I found you.
And did you love me true?
Did you Rusty?
Did you love me true?

(Singing) Rusty, Rusty

'Cause I loved you then Rusty, I loved yah so true and I was so faithful

(Singing) Rusty, Rusty. Oh yeah, yeah.
Rusty, come on now
Rusty. Oh baby, baby
Rusty, you know you make me feel yah
Rusty.

(Singing in background) "Oh Rusty, you done me wrong."
(Monologue)
Ah, I tried that Caldermores cheese you sent over but I didn't really dig it that much but I still love to hear you talk from Justin, isn't that nice?
But I know, I've been kinda jumpy lately, I just can't get no sleep on that bed you made me send off for. Boy, them leather straps and them rubber bits that just keep danglin' why they just keep diggin' in my side. I just can't get no sleep at all.
Geez, I know I won't sleep good until you tell me one of your little stories again.
And those sheets Rusty, those sheets sure are cold when you first get in, oh boy.
You remember Marty Clemmon from on, on the dock scene? Well Marty, Marty and Frank came round the other day and they was just full of this Gay Front. They just wouldn't stop talking about it. Well, what's with this Gay Front? I mean I only just got the front painted up. Jesus, ain't that gay enough?
Oh Rusty, I can't figure out how to write to you.
I want you here so much, just close to me. Standing by my side, the way you always did. The way I knew you would.
And now people are staring at me Rusty.
Maybe I should close this letter.

(Chant) 1, 2, 3, 4
