Subject: Parody of I walk the line.

Does anyone have the lyrics to this parody?

Starts out, "I keep my pants up all the time, I keep them up with a piece of twine..."

If it indeed was a parody, it was one I heard Mr Cash sing his-self. I'll be back with the verse soon.

"I Walk The Line"

Better Lyrics:

I keep my pants up with a piece of twine
I keep my fly wide open all the time
I keep the knot loose on my piece of twine
Say you'll be mine, and you can pull the twine

Original Lyrics:

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line

The way I recall hearing it:

I hold my pants up with a piece of twine
I keep my fly wide open all the time
I keep the knot loose on that piece of twine
If you'll be mine, then pull the twine

or

Say you'll be mine, come pull the twine

###############################

The first two stanzas are on the net.

Song's about twine,
And he dropped his '9'.

I keep a close watch on the beer & wine.
I know the drinking limits that are mine.
"Should you be drinking?"
"Yes, I think I'm fine"
The copper (trooper) says "Please walk the line!"

I think my answers are so very true!
"Have you had many?"; "No, just one or two"
"Yes, at a stretch, it may have been a few!"
"I'm feeling fine"
"Just walk the line!"


Could probably do with another verse or two, but I may have imbibed!

Cheers

Nigel

Feel free to use, or to extend!

Cheers

As sure as night is dark, And day is light.
I keep that solid white line on my right. (US= I do all my driving on the right)
I keep my open bottle out of sight,
Yet still I find,
I walk the line.


Getting there!

I have heard it as

I keep coat
Tied tight with a belt of twine
I keep my flies wide open all the time
And when a pretty girl
Passes by
I pull the twine
I pull the twine

I keep my pants up with a piece of twine,
I keep my arms wide open all the time,
I keep myself wide open all the time.
Because you're mind,
Please pull the twine.


As I remember it, that was the way the Smothers Brothers did it.

To drink's a very very easy thing to do,
I'm sure I'm sober when the evenings through.
Though early on I may have 'called for Hugh'
Just one more time,
I'll walk the line.

Pulling those verses together:

I Walk The Line (or try to)
NP Nov 2011

I keep a close watch on the beer & wine.
I know the drinking limits that are mine.
"Should you be drinking?"
"Yes, I think I'm fine"
The copper (trooper) says "Please walk the line!"

I think my answers are so very true!
"Have you had many?"; "No, just one or two"
"Yes, at a stretch, it may have been a few!"
"I'm feeling fine"
"Just walk the line!"

As sure as night is dark, And day is light.
I keep that solid white line on my right. (US= I do all my driving on the right)
I keep my open bottle out of sight,
Yet still I find,
I walk the line.

To drink's a very very easy thing to do,
I'm sure I'm sober when the evenings through.
Though early on I may have 'called for Hugh'
Just one more time,
I'll walk the line.

Is it true that Johnny Cash made his fortune from collecting the change left behind in Condom vending machines, and that his name commemorates this?
