lyrics

Hey you alligator see you later, maybe you're coming back my way
Oh hey mamacita you're a sexy señorita leading me astray
Maybe we can meet again, better place, better time, what do you say
Ok, don't respond 'cause I will grief when you don't say okay

And you don't know my name, you don't know my name
And I don't know your name, I don't know your name
And you don't play this game, you don't play this game
And you don't play this game, you are such a shame

Can you see the skunk in me
I just want one night, I won't be there in the morning light
You want me to be your eternity
I'm a fly by night, I won't be there in the morning light

Split your lungs in blood and thunder when you see the holy grail
Break my back and I crack my oars, I wish to prevail
This leg is what propels me, my harpoon thrusts in the sky
I aim for her crooked brow and I look her straight in the eye

And you don't know my name, you don't know my name
And I don't know your name, I don't know your name
And you don't play this game, you don't play this game
And you don't play this game, you are such a shame

Can you see the skunk in me
I just want one night, I won't be there in the morning light
You want me to be your eternity
I'm a fly by night, I won't be there in the morning light

about

Walking Men Bamberg, Germany

A mild summer's night, the taste of whiskey and beer and some good tunes.
These are the evenings the two guys of Walking Men live for. They are playing their gritty music in bars clubs and festivals since 2010.
Rock and Blues to dance to, handmade guitars, crazy stories and the passion for music are a given.
So come join us, our porch is big enough, the beers are cold and the music's good.
