Got himself a peach colored leisure suit
Hundred dollar bills stuffed in floor shined boots
Smelling like a mint flavored soda pop
Sure smelling sweet when the weather gets hot
You got a dime
He's got a dollar
He's the king of corn
Born from way back in Nerhada

Call him the King of the Mountain
A blue rich business man
Easin' in a Pentacon tractor
Doin' the best that he can

Bought himself a camera down in Gunthersville
Bought it with the money from a moonshine still
Hey hillbilly blue way on back on red
Always gotta cold Diet Pepsi in his fist
You got a dime
He's got a dollar
He's the king of corn
Born from way back in Nerhada

Call him the King of the Mountain
A blue rich business man
Easin' in a Pentacon tractor
Doin' the best that he can

You drink it by the glass, you can buy it by the jar
He told my sister that he'd make her a star
His cash flow is about a hundred proof
Just opened up a line of tanning booths
You got a dime
He's got a dollar
He's the king of corn
Born from way back in Nerhada

Call him the King of the Mountain
A blue rich business man
Easin' in a Pentacon tractor
Doin' the best that he can

And if ya cousin stops by be sure to give a holler
They call him the King of the Mountain
A blue rich business man
Easin' in a Pentacon tractor
Doin' the best that he can

    General CommentI don't think this song has a meaning. Its a song from the movie "Super Troopers" and its funny as hell. This is the song thats playing when Rod Farva is gassin' up his Firebird and cheats to get the free hotdog.

    General Commenti think it is "from way back in the holler" as opposed to neharda... Which makes since being that "hollers" are part of southern slang describing a pass through a mountainous or hilly area.

    General CommentActually this song is from the 2000 album Liquored Up and Lacqured down. Seeing as how 2 of the members of the band are from my hometown and my hubby and I are HUGE fans who've seen this band live about a million times, I gotta set the record straight here:

    It's "Hundred dollar bills stuffed in Florsheim boots." Florsheim being the brand that all the little old men wear with their spiffy leisure suit.

    And he's also "Smelling like mentholated soda pop" referring to the menthol cigarettes that all the old coots around here smoke and the fact that they've always got a can of soda somewhere nearby.

    He's also a "Blue Ridge business man" since all of the members of SCOTS are from the Blue Ridge area of VA & NC. And "He's an independent contractor." Not sure what a Pentacon tractor is - we only own Massey Fergusons.

    And finally "He's the King of corn and porn from way back in the holler." Not sure where Nerhada is, but it's nowhere near Franklin County, VA - the moonshine capitol of the country. lol

    So yes...this song has tons of meaning to those of us who live in the area where this band has it's roots. I've got so many memories of the old farts around here hanging out at the local country store, starting at all the females. I can just SEE this man in my head! :o)

    General CommentAll that make sense, but...

    A Pentacon is an old medium format (bigger film than your typical) camera - they refer to him buying a camera with moonshine money - so "Easin' in a 'Pentacon' Tractor" would mean while farmers are toiling in their Massey-Fergusons, he's got it easy with his vehicle of choice, which happens to be a 'Pentacon.'

    I thought it was 'independent contractor when I first heard it, I'm just saying, is all...

    Forgot to add this - it's funny, they even refer to the camera as the "Massey-Ferguson" of it's time.

    Lyric CorrectionI first became aware of the band when they appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 2001 (011231 if my internet research is correct).

    I found that appearance on YouTube:
    youtube.com/…

    I liked their performance and the song so much I went out the next day and bought every album I could find.

    In some cases during this live performance its possible to confirm/refute some of the lyrics provided above.

    Have a look and judge for yourself. Enjoy!
