Timmy tucker was a friend of mine
He came from a long line of geeks
His papa was a horseshoe throwin' man
He was a horseshoe throwin' freak
His mama's name was annabelle
And his daddy's name was zeek
But he could throw them horseshoes man
He was a horseshoe throwin' freak

Timmy was a different sort
He wasn't like his dad or mom

They wanted him to grow up
Just like his older brother tom
Timmy'd get so close, so close
So close, but not very long
Couldn't even score a point
In hand grenades or atom bombs

Alone and tired he walked the streets
Of downtown exeter
With a pocket full of rusted change
A transcendence did occur

Metaphysical reckoning of his purpose did infer
He should huff himself the short trek down to the army recruiter

Poor, poor, Timmy tucker
Poor, poor, Timmy tucker
Poor, poor, Timmy tucker
Poor, poor, Timmy tucker

Timmy finally freed himself
From the onus he called dad
He'd let the army teach him a trade
Surveying was his bag
Sergeant goat lips was an evil man
Cause his wife was a wretched hag
Timmy blinked and opened his eyes
He was washing pots
With an army rag

Our hero's life turned olive drab
He was cast into a four year hell
Livin' in barracks with forty men
His loins did ever swell
Timmy took a walk outside
Lordy, lordy, lord he fell
A rock was tossed into his retina
His eye was an empty shell

With a check and a discharge
He just hopped on the nearest bus
Went down to Tijuana
Got a nasty case of pus

Metaphysical reckoning of his purpose did infer
He should huff himself the short trek down to the army recruiter

Poor, poor, Timmy tucker
Poor, poor, Timmy tucker
Poor, poor, Timmy tucker
Poor, poor, Timmy tucker

(part of first verse repeated)
Timmy tucker was a friend of mine
He came from a long line of geeks
His papa was a horseshoe throwin' man
He was a horseshoe throwin' freak

Metaphysical reckoning of his purpose did infer
He should huff himself the short trek down to the army recruiter

Poor, poor, Timmy tucker
Poor, poor, Timmy tucker
Poor, poor, Timmy tucker
Poor, poor, Timmy tucker

    General CommentTimmy Tucker is about a passed out kid with a Nitros Balloon at one of moe.'s shows. They use to play a lot in buffalo at a crazy bar called smokin Joes a place where you could buy drugs over the bar, find some guns, and the shitter wasn't safe and one night there their was a Nitros tank and one of the crew members walked out back to take a piss between sets and they saw that kid and his name was Timmy Tucker...Al mentioned this at moe.down this year

    General Commenti think the timmy tucker story from moe.down5 was just a story. maybe that's where they got the name. but the song is about more than that. it has to do with how the military brainwashes people. Timmy thinks he's heading out to do his own thing, and be someone different from his family - and instead he becomes a military machine.

    General Commenti have heard moe. say that the song is about NO2, but with the exception of the word "huff"
    i dont get it-perhaps this is the most allegorical song ever!
