Josh bought me this record in Nashville, and I totally love it. Thanks, Josh! Its really funny and from what I can tell, Freeze a Yankee made it to the top of the Dallas radio charts for a few weeks. It’s definitely centered on the energy crisis on the 1970s but I think it is surprisingly relevant today as well. Side One is “A Texas Solution to the Energy Crisis – Freeze A Yankee”
“Freeze A Yankee,
drive 75 and freeze them alive
Freeze a Yankee,
Let your thermostat rise and give them a surprise.
Cram them Yankee’s in little bitty cars
While we drive around in limousines.
There ain’t nothing in the world any more fun,
Then pumpin’ gas in those big Machines.
Us Texan’s love our Cadillac’s,
Big Continental’s and Pontiac’s.
We’re gonna keep all the gas we can make
And let them Yankee’s shiver and shake.”
Side 2 is “A Tribute to the Trinity, or Muddy Buddy, or Oozin’ Down the River.” Anyone in Dallas can tell you that the Trinity STINKS, on a good day it smells like a fart and on a bad day it smells like 10,000 rotting corpses.
“There’s lot’s of things in Texas
That we all hold quite dear
The Alamo and cowboys
And rivers swift and clear
South Texas has the Rio Grande
The Neches and Pedernales
But we wonder why the good Lord put
The Trinity in Dallas”
