Throwback Video 002/015

This song is another that was written during my second tour with the army. I found a can of mixed nuts in a care package that was sent to us by some kind people we'd never met...the brand was...Jerry's Nuthouse!
LOL - That's really all there was to it. I think maybe I already had a line in mind about this "Old Sweaty Freddy & his dirty brown teddy," but honestly it was so long ago I'm not sure about anything anymore except that this song was ultimately created because I stumbled upon a particular can of nuts.
Lyrics:
Old Sweaty Freddy, had a dirty brown teddy, But it was white when his parents bought it.
But Old Sweaty Freddy, and his dirty brown teddy, liked to go galavantin' off into the night.
They had a lot of adventures, and a lot of fun,
but Old Sweaty Freddy and his teddy, were always on the run.
They had a lot going on that night,
They broke all the rules just for spite,
But when they awoke it was still night,
Teddy got that feeling like something wasn't right So he said to Freddy maybe we should go
But Old Sweaty Freddy, had a different plan in mind. He wanted to go to the redlight, and have a good time.
But the dirty brown teddy, knew you had to have cash for fun. When the bouncers came out, they hit the deck and started to run
They had to get the hell out of Dodge,
and hide out for the night at a low rate lodge
Between their deals selling crack in the night, and that dispute with the bouncers at the redlight
No one knows what happened for sure,
but they were killed and covered in manure.
Jerry's in the Nuthouse, Sweaty Freddy's dead,
and the dirty brown teddy well he went ahead and he caught two in the head.

They were picked up and buried, lowered in the ground.
They had a funeral, but not a soul came around.
Jerry's in the Nuthouse, Sweaty Freddy's dead,
and the dirty brown teddy well he went ahead and he caught two in the head.
