Hurricane Charlie
© an Improvisation by the Big Jerks

In the middle of August came to town
An outlaw, his name?
Hurricane Charlie

Better run away...
You said, Hurricane Charlie’s going to come today
Hurricane Charlie going to come today
Ah, you better run run run run run away
I hear, ‘cause Hurricane Charlie going to come today
Ah, run run run run run away
Run run run, I better run away

“God dammit”, I said
I’m watching the news, I’m watching the weather
It’s a little, a little tiny Hurricane
What’s the big fuss?
I’m not leaving, I got friends over
We got Mai Tais, we got ice teas, Texas tea!
Ah, you got to run run run run run away
You better run run run
Some guy says I better run away

Yeah, there was a, a “Hurricane Watch”
But we know what that means
It means to watch it on tv.
It’s not coming here, it’s not coming here
It’s not coming here!
I said run run run
You better run away, son!

Run run, run run
Yeah, Hurricane Charlie’s going to come today
He’s going to run run run run run away
They said Hurricane Charlie’s coming through today
Better watch out they said,
Run run run run run away
Run run, I better run away...

God dammit, I’m not packed, take it down again!
I’m not packed, I don’t have any food
I’m not leaving, I can ride this out
I got my, I got a fence around my property
Nothing’s going to happen,
The fence will stop anything from coming into my house
I got a strong mobil home
It’s got those, well they’re sort of thin walls,
But I think, think that it’ll be ok
I think I’ll be ok today
No, no they say, better run run run run run away
Better run run,
Son, run away!

His name? Hurricane Charlie’s on his way
And the weather man said, “Run away, run away!”
‘Cause Hurricane Charlie’s on his way
You better run run run run run away
Run run run
You better run away
Yeah, you better run run run run run away
Run run run
I better run away, hey
Hurricane Charlie
his name?
Hurricane Charlie
His name?
Hurricane Charlie
His name
Hurricane Charlie.
