The Call of the Wreckin' Ball

This song is by X and appears on the live album Live at the Whisky A Go-Go on the Fabulous Sunset Strip (1988).

Well I woke up this morning, lookin' for kicks
Went out to the barnyard to stomp on some chicks
They call me Wreckin' Ball, 'cause I'm the baddest of 'em all

I got a bullet head and one stray eye, my back's been broken twice
Wear big ol' boots and overalls, my pants is filled with lice
They call me Wreckin' Ball, 'cause I'm the baddest of 'em all

I'll stomp on an egg, or I'll stomp on a duck
Geese or cornish hens, I don't give a fuck
They call me Wreckin' Ball, 'cause I'm the baddest of 'em all

Roosters and hens
And all their feathered friends
They know it's time to fly
When I come stompin' by
Well cockle-doodle-doo
I'm gonna put my tread on you
That's the call of the Wreckin' Ball

Some people ask why I'm such a bastard
Well wringing their necks ain't no fun and stompin' kills 'em faster
They call me Wreckin' Ball, 'cause I'm the baddest of 'em all

If your fowl's gone foul, you can't count on loafers
Just look me up and I'll stomp right over
They call me Wreckin' Ball, 'cause I'm the baddest of 'em all

Ooh
Wrecking ball has gone on welfare
Wrecking ball makes ends meet
Some how

The life I lead is mighty slim pickins
There ain't much call for stompin' on chickens
They call me Wreckin' Ball, 'cause I'm the baddest of 'em all

Well Roosters and hens
And all their f'in friends
They know it's time to fly
When I come stompin' by
Well cockle-doodle-doo
I'm gonna put my tread on you
That's the call of the Wreckin' Ball
Woo wee!
Chick chick
Chicken

Picture this, pot belly stove
Broken down shoes
Country haircut
Overalls, warm Sunday night

Well Sunday night I pluck the feathers from my shoes
And sing a little bit of these chicken stompin' blues
They call me Wreckin' Ball, 'cause I'm the baddest of 'em all

Yeah, they call me Wreckin' Ball
'Cause I'm the baddest of 'em all!
Woohooohoo hoo
