FLORIDA MAN BY BLUE OYSTER CULT – LYRICS

Should you settle down in the Sunshine State you should know of its tangled fate
How the conquistador came to Florida long before it had a name The medicine man of the Seminole knelt at the sacred flame And he cursed the soul of the conquistador And his son, and his sons, and the young ones…
Of the Florida Man

Florida Man
Florida Man
Florida Man

Down at the mall, where the boas crawl Ted makes love to a concrete wall
(Florida Man!)
His brother Red said his Uncle Ned found Elvis in a loaf of bread
(Florida Man!)
High on meth there’s little Beth the neighbor’s cat is on her breath
(Florida Man!)

Dan dreams he’s got red wings of fire he’s waking an’ shaking on a power wire

Florida Man
Florida Man
Florida Man

Slim sees his face in a moonlit wave gets a shovel, digs his own grave
(Florida Man!)
Lee hates plate glass, he drives right through it said Alice’s caterpillar made him do it
(Florida Man!)
A Miami nurse snatches a purse drives down the freeway in reverse
(Florida Man!)
Rip asks the cops to test his drugs after they find him hiding under a rug

Florida Man
Florida Man
Florida Man

Don’t you laugh, it could be you
The Seminole curse always comes true
You can jeer but you don’t understand
That any fragile soul
Can be the Florida Man
