Have you met old Slick?
He's slicker than spit
He's slicker than alligator shit
Ask the girls in town and man
they say he's it

That's old Slick
He's lightning-quick
He's slyer than old St. Nick
He'll singe your eyebrows off
with one snap flick of his Bic

That's old Slick
He's finer than frog hair
He'll give you that albacore stare
His voice lies on ya heavy like
New Orleans air

Our man Slick he loves
the Thai Noodles.

Slick he's got him a new ride
He's shiftin' with astroglide
Rolling his Sherman tank
upholstered buffalo hide
He'll steal your heart away
He'll turn a homophobe gay
He'll communicate thoughts no one
ever had the balls to say

He's awful slick
and he loves the Thai noodles
I do believe he said he loves
the Thai noodles

Have you met Old Slick?

    General CommentI think it has something to do w/ war.

    "Rolling his Sherman tank
    Upholstered in buffalo hide"

    I think this is a reference to war b/c from what I know the military uses Sherman tanks in war. If I'm wrong somebody correct me.

    General Commenti think this sing is from the perspective of someone who is really jealous of this guy called slick. Maybe the Thai Noodles just have to do with his crazy affixiation with slick, that he knows all about him. And from the last line, it sounds like he leaves this whole message on slick's answering machine, because that's what those noises after "have you met ol slick!?" sound like. So basically, its about a guy who is obsessed with slick. In my opinoin. I could be wrong.

    General CommentThe sherman Tank referance has more to do with whats cooler than an SUV, well a tank hogs more gas, and whats endangered, buffalo. Slick is so damn cool, he drives a tank, with an endagered animal as upholstry. It could be from Slick's point of view, talking about himself to someone (woman?) tellimg them how great he is, or a friend of slick telling somone how great he is. Thats what i get out of it.
