lyrics

There's a dude a know from north of Mexico
Some people call him Roger
I just call him bro
And I also call him Singing Scorpion
and the Dylan of the desert
and the poet on the run

His name is Roger Clyne and he lives among the cactus
He's never on time and he doesn't like to practice
He always leaves 'em wanting more
He's the Tucson Troubadour

He is lean and mean, a songwriting machine
He wrote that song Banditos, and the King of the Hill Theme
He is also a conservationist
and when people don't recycle, he gets kinda pissed

His name is Roger Clyne and lives among the cactus
He's never on time and he doesn't like to practice
He sings about an open door
He's the Tucson Troubadour

And you can take him out of Arizona
But you'll never take Arizona out of the man
He's loves the Arizona land
He digs the Arizona sand

Yeah you can take him out of Arizona
but you'll never take Arizona out of the man
He's got an Arizona tan
Give him an Arizona hand

And he has a lot of songs that rhyme with O like DinerO, MexicO, AmericanO, BuffalO
Just went I thought that he was done rhyming in O
He went and wrote another and it's called ¡GeronimO!

His name is Roger Clyne and lives among the cactus
He's never on time and he doesn't like to practice
He always leaves 'em wanting more
He's the Tucson Troubadour

His name is Roger Clyne and lives among the cactus
He's never on time and he doesn't like to practice
He sings about an open door
He's the Tucson Troubadour

He always leaves 'em wanting more
He's the Tucson Troubadour

Cha! Cha! Cha!
