Resurrection Joe Lyrics

I said hep cats, sinners, brats
Suck on this for sunshine
This is the resurrection
Yea, of the good times
I said hep cats, sinners, brats
Sunshine
This is the resurrection
Yea, yea, yea, of the good times

I said hep cats, sinners, brats
Suck on me for sunshine
This is the resurrection, yea
Yea, of the good times

Resurrection Joe
Resurrection Joe

Two soldiers went marching
Well, down an open road
With a guilty load
One turned, the other said
I am dead
This is my calling on to you
My resurrection for you, yea

I said
Hep, hep, hep, hep, hep, hep, hep, hep, hep, hep, hep
Suck on this
For the sunshine

Resurrection Joe
Resurrection Joe

Resurrection Joe Meanings

I just watched a 1958 horror film short called "Corridors of Blood." Christopher Lee plays a grave robber named "Resurrection Joe" in it. The lyrics to the song don't mirror the movie exactly but I'd be willing to bet the film inspired Ian to some degree. The film is about a Victorian era doctor, played by Boris Karloff. He experiments on himself, searching for an anesthesia gas and becomes addicted. Could be where the line "Suck on me for sunshine" comes from.
