Song Lyrics


Song Meaning
Verse 1
Davenports and kettle drums
And swallow tail coats
Table cloths and patent leather shoes
Verse 2
Bathing suits and bowling balls
And clarinets and rings
And all this radio really needs is a fuse
Verse 3
A tinker, a tailor
A soldier's things
His rifle, his boots, full of rocks
Verse 4
And this one is for bravery
And this one for me
And everything a dollar in this box
Verse 5
Cuff links and hub caps
Trophies and paperbacks
It's good transportation
But the brakes aren't so hot
Verse 6
Neck tie and boxing gloves
This jackknife is rusted
You can pound that dent out
On the hood
Verse 7
A tinker, a tailor
A soldier's things
His rifle, his boots, full of rocks
Verse 8
And this one is for bravery
And this one for me
And everything a dollar in this box
Verse 9
A tinker, a tailor
A soldier's things
His rifle, his boots, full of rocks
Verse 10
And this one is for bravery
And this one for me
And everything a dollar in this box
