Saxophones Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I cut my teeth on Gumbo rock
Benny Stillman and Dr. John
Sweet Erma Thomas and Frogman Henry
Used to boogie woogie all night long

Though I love rock n' roll, the acoustic guitar
Was the only way I had of becomin' a star
I'm doin' really nice, travellin' around
But they won't play my record in my old home town

If I had saxophones
Yeah, big baritone cleanin' up the muddy breaks
If I had saxophones
I could get some recognition from that Mobile, Alabama D.J.

Livin' by the ocean, sometimes I get the notion
To take my Janey downtown
We hang out in a funky little bar
They call it "Shipwreck Lounge"

Well, we get kind of drunk and we play rock n' roll
Grabbin' everybody right down in his soul
When we get to cookin' somethin's still wrong
There's still somethin' missin' from them good ole songs

But if we had saxophones
Big baritone cleanin' up the muddy breaks
If we had saxophones
I could make that joint shimmy like a big California earthquake

Yeah, if we had saxophones
Big baritone cleanin' up the muddy breaks
If we had saxophones
I could get some recognition from that Mobile, Alabama D.J.
