I got more love than anything else
But a Jezebel spirit gonna steal my health
Struck by the notion that it just might be
A method to the madness that i cannot see

Something for the freedom of a roughed-up soul
Forty-two years young is a little bit old
Boy named Sue sing a Tennessee tune
Got buffalo love living on the moon

[chorus]
Save this lady for me [x4]

Call me Alabama i'm a Seminole prize
Got time square hair and a bedroom eyes
Keystone cops and the billy bob chops
Gonna scare my kids gonna share my crops

Vampire blood and a baseball glove
Justa a little bit of what the girl is made of
National crash into the big lampoon
With a creature coming up from the black lagoon

[chorus]

Losing ground true sounds of liberty
The forest of the north might hold the key

Rocking to the rhythm of a ragtime band
Black flag wave on on my truck my man
Blasting for jones and the great unknowns
Got cheap cologne seventy-six trombones

Looking for the lady that won't be afraid
When heaven needs a hammer gotta get things made
I got more love than anything else
But a Jezebel spirit gonna steal my health

[chorus] [x2]

    General CommentWoohoo first comment. I've only heard this song once but I think it's about how he is still looking for the perfect Lady as all the other band members have settled down with significant partners except Anthony.

    General Commentawww i think this is definately about Anthony wanting to settle down now, with this song and the b-side from...i think it was snow "funny face" its certainly showing, that hes had enough with the one night stands, he wants a partner to live his life with.

    General CommentThis song, looks to me, is about America and it's grassroot values. Save this Lady: Lady=Lady Liberty. Forest of the north=undisovered country that Lewis and Clark ventured into. Look at all the iconic figures he uses that are American made.

    General CommentIt's 'Losing ground, true sounds of levity' not 'liberty'
