"Bubba Hyde" as written by Craig Michael Wiseman and Gene Nelson....
Barney works down at the A & P
He drives a baby blue A.M.C.
Ain't missed of day of work in 13 years
He's a fire department volunteer

He's got a yard that's always just been mowed
Collected stamps since he was 10 years old
You've never seen a more regular guy
But when the sun goes down on Friday night

Chorus:
Slaps on his Hai Karate after shave
Puts on his Elvis jacket custom-made
Gets in his patent leather zebra boots
Fires up his super sport Malibu
He burns the rubber 'cross the county line
A honky tonkin' fool till closing time
You ought to see him metamorphosize
From Barney Jekyll into Bubba Hyde

Monday morning it's a suit and tie
Attention shoppers there's a two-for-one buy
Tuesday afternoon he mans the wheel
Makes his round in the bookmobile

He's got a Wednesday night canasta game
Thursday's the tourney at the bowling lanes
His friends would freak out if they only knew
The party animal he turns into

Chorus

You oughta see him metamorphosize

    My InterpretationI look at this song as the perfect way to explain the "odd" things people do. One one hand, his friends, what they see in him is this plain, ordinary guy. What they don't know is he really is anything but. Some people live the double life, whether it be in front of friends, family, coworkers/classmates, ... But, when they are not around those people, there is a completely different side to them.

    It is interesting how a country act could do a song like this, and it gets airplay. I have always loved it.

    Time to go fire up that Malibu SS!
