Joe Dassin: Lustful Earl And The Married Woman

Joe Dassin: Lustful Earl And The Married Woman (1979)
Now, big earl Grand Joe, he was a lone wolf,
He was always on the prowl
And when he'd go out to find a woman,
He could hear his awful howl:

Ahooo hoo hoo,
Ahooo hoo hoo,
Baby I'm comin' for you
Ahoo ahoo ahoo…

Now, Lucy Dorcey, she was a pretty thing,
But you know, she was married…
Whenever she see him, old big earl coming,
She'd hide the ring she was wearing.

Ahooo all right!
This went on every night,
Big earl would howl for more
But then one night there came a-poundin' on the door…

There went her husband; he knocked the door down
And he grabbed her ferociously.
She said, "Earl, honey, would you call the police,
'Cause I believe, he's a-killin' me…"

He turned on earl with the gun,
There was no chance to run.
He said, "You've had it, son."
But he'd missed and shot him through the knee…

Well, old earl, he jumped outa the window,
He was naked and limping down the road
And you could hear him howling in the distance
But he sounded like a wounded toad:

Why did you shoot me in the knee?
I was just trying to do
The thing that comes naturally!"
