Red Hot Women And Ice Cold Beer

Lyrics: Cy Coben
Music: Cy Coben

Played by the New Riders of the Purple Sage in the 1970s.

When I was in the Navy. and I sailed the seven seas
Lots of time the swabbies and me would sit and bat the breeze
We talked about the things we missed, just two things I recall
And this is what those two things were we missed most of all

Red hot women and ice cold beer
And enough of both to last the year
What's paradise like, is my idea
Red hot women and ice cold beer

My Uncle John he went and died and left me all his dough
And he was known as a ladies' man and a playboy, you know
His will read, dearest nephew, you're just like your Uncle John
I'm leaving you my money, 'cause I know you'll spend it on

Red hot women and ice cold beer
And enough of both to last the year
What's paradise like, is my idea
Red hot women and ice cold beer

There was a King of Egypt and his name was King Faroukh
And they called him a sex-fiend and a camel-riding coot
He collected porno pictures and he caused quite a stir
When he told reporters that his favorite hobbies were

Red hot women and ice cold beer
And enough of both to last the year
What's paradise like, is my idea
Red hot women and ice cold beer

What's the other place like, is my idea
Ice cold women, and red hot beer
