One Question Interviews: Gino and the Goons

Gino Bambino (Gino and the Goons)

SPB: Who is your favorite lyricist?

Gino:

I walk 47 miles of barbed wire,

I use a cobra-snake for a necktie,

I got a brand new house on the roadside,

Made from rattlesnake hide,

I got a brand new chimney made on top,

Made out of a human skull,

Now come on take a walk with me, Arlene,

And tell me, who do you love? 

Who do you love? 

Tombstone hand and a graveyard mind,

Just 22 and I don't mind dying.

Who do you love?

I rode around the town, use a rattlesnake whip,

Take it easy Arlene, don't give me no lip,

Who do you love?

Night was dark, when the sky was blue,

Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew,

Hit a bump, and somebody screamed,

You shoulda heard just what I seen.

Who do you love? 

Arlene took me by my hand,

And she said ooh wee Bo, you know I understand.

Who do you love?

Songwriter: ELLAS MCDANIEL

Plus Hank Sr., Chuck Berry, Jagger/Richards, Lemmy, Dee Dee, Pat Todd, Eric Davidson, Tbone Jones…
