"Country Sad Ballad Man" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
Yeah I found nowhere
It got to know me
Let me sleep all day
Spent the money
I haven't felt my legs
Since the summer
And I don't call my friends
Forgot the numbers

[Chorus]
V-I-P 2-2-3
Have my chances
They have me
Now stay up nights
Watch T-V
I'm a country sad
I'm a ballad man

I'm on a come back roll
Yeah I'm a buzzard
And in my motor home
Sweat on my pillow all night

[Chorus]

    Song MeaningI think "VIP 223" refers to a 1972 Farfisa VIP 223 Keyboard Organ. I'm not sure waht connection that has to the song, but maybe the keyboard player used one.

    My Interpretation For me, this song seems to be Damon's best attempt at wrapping his head around the redneck lifestyle and trying to figure out what draws such people to the sad counrty ballad genre of music...

    General Comment'223'-- the number 23 pops up often in Jamie Hewlett's artwork for Gorillaz, Damon Albarn's future project.
