Unnecessarily Pimped-Out Horse Truck

A sea of blue sparkle paint and too much chrome
Like Cab Calloway telling a shaggy horse story

Drivin’ to my baby’s for a red hot date
The traffic wasn’t movin’ I was already late
I craned my neck to see the cause of the jam
Thinking that maybe I should lend a hand
A sea of blue sparkle paint and too much chrome
It was a mobile equine luxury home
To my deep consternation I found myself stuck
Behind an unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck

It was an unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck
An unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck
It could not be overtaken, it could not be overtook
That unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck

People was a-cussin’ an a-honkin’ their horns
As I walked over to the driver, she was looking forlorn
I said “Ma’am, you got a unique boutique horse abode
But you really outta’ saddle up ‘fore you get towed”
She commenced to cryin’ I said “Why the long face?”
She said “I think my prize stallion has gone an’ escaped,
Would you pull up to my bumper baby, please take a look
Inside my unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck?”

My unnecessarily pimped out horse truck
My unnecessarily pimped out horse truck
Examine every cranny and probe every nook
Inside my unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck

Sure enough the back door was open wide
But to take a closer look I climbed up inside
I found a pair of busted handcuffs and some dudes pants
That was the moment that the back door slammed
I said, “don’t horse around ma’am I gots to skedaddle”
She said, “slow down stud, let me get back in the saddle”
She was some kind of pervert or some kind of crook
Drivin’ an unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck

An unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck
An unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck
The whole van shimmied, the whole van shook
That unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck

I was fighting for my honour but she wouldn’t back down
She was ridin’ me bareback like a rodeo clown
She had the bit between my teeth and her spurs in my ribs
I groped around and cried out for deliverance
That’s when a glittering trinket that was nailed high above
Fell down and crowned her with a terrible thud
A purple sparkle horseshoe sure brought me good luck
Inside that unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck

That unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck
That unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck
Goodnight sweet Princess, no, don’t get up
From your unnecessarily pimped-out horse truck
