  • Haha! I can't believe someone else remembers that lyric!

    Downstairs at Danny's all-star joint
    They got a juke box that goes doyt-doyt
    The vice is nice, they stay in the back all day
    But when the nighttime comes, hey-hey
    There's this cat down there that makes a bad kinda soup
    I come around struttin' my luck in my shoop coupe
    Cecil gives me coffee
    And he won't never take my coin
    I say, "I got thirty dollars in my pocket! Whatchoo doin'?"
