Ol' Silk Johnson,
Cruisin' up mighty fine,
Got a brand new cadillac.
His buddy, Conrad Smith,
Rollin' down the line,
Got last year's cadillac.
Johnson says "Hey Smitty boy,
Whatcha thinkin' of my spankin new Cadillac?"
Smitts just reeled his head back,
Looked him in the eye,
"That's a mighty fine cadillac,

But I'ma gonna get me one better,
Just you wait and see.
I'ma gonna get me one better,
You can't get the best of me.
I'ma gonna get me one better,
The baddest one around.
I'ma gonna get me one better,
'Cos I've got the biggest balls in town."

Remember old Khrushchev
When he was ridin' high with that Sputnik satellite?
He told us Yankee boys,
He was gonna fill the skies,
With them shiny new satellites.
He said "Hey Mr. Eisenhower,
What do you think of my Sputnik satellite?"
Ike just reeled his head back,
Looked him in the eye,
"That's a mighty fine satellite

But I'ma gonna get me one better,
Just you wait and see
I'ma gonna get me one better,
You can't get the best of me,
I'ma gonna get me one better,
The baddest one around,
I'ma gonna get me one better,
'Cos I've got the biggest balls in town."

    General CommentThis song is about mostly men that compete with buying expensive things, the guy with the best thing has the ''biggest balls'' and therefore shows-of to the neighbor or someone. As he shows it to the impress the other gets jealous and has to buy a better thing.
    This is a great song i cant wait to buy the new album.

    this song is obviously about the feud between the united states and Russia, known as the cold war. We were basically competing with nuclear weapons(les uses cadillacs as reference to how we both wanted the newest and the best technology). The whole sputnik satellite line references to the space race. Russia sent out a sputnik satellite that made it around earth once before it fell back into our atmosphere, and the united states had to beat it, so we started building satellites.

    General CommentWhen I saw Les and the Fancy band at Bonnaroo this past July, in the middle of this ditty he comented at what the song was about. He spoke of how we as Americans seam to have trouble excepting others gaining more new/better material possetions. As Americans, we have to be the best at it all, we look at others and concider that at that momment they indeed have began a contest which declares the person with the more nice/geniune object, the winner. WE can't settle for second, cuz' we got the biggest balls.
