    Lyrics

    Come on

    Your uncle Walter's goin' on and on
    'Bout everything he's seen and done
    The voice of fifty years experience
    He's drunk watchin' the television

    You know he's been around the world, last night
    He flew to Baghdad in his magical armchair
    With cigarettes and a six pack, yeah, he just got back
    The spits flyin' everywhere, hey, hey, hey, hey

    Your uncle Walter's goin' on and on
    (Oh, you're back so late)
    Where did you go that you were gone so long?
    So, how could you leave me here so long with uncle Walter?

    Your uncle Walter saw who fired the shots
    He drove his chair in the cavalcade
    He's flown from South Africa to countries where
    They beat themselves on the backs with chains

    There was a fleet of battleships and one reclinin' chair
    Headed north on the Arabian sea, now he's back
    To tell us what he and his oldest boy Blair
    They're gettin' rich with a mail order scheme, oh, oh

    Your uncle Walter saw who fired the shots
    (We're so glad you're home)
    Where did you go that you were gone so long?
    How could you leave me here so long with uncle Walter?

    Your uncle Walter told me
    Everythin' he'd do if he was president
    Now, what a perfect world this world would be
    If he was president now but he's not

    And he sees the children smokin' pot
    He knows that in a moment they'll be
    Shootin' up heroin, teardrops in his armchair
    A fifty minute lecture, tobacco juice rollin' down his chin

    Your uncle Walter's goin' on and on
    (Oh, you're back so late)
    Where did you go that you were gone so long?
    So how could you leave me here so long with uncle Walter?

    Come on
