  • 10 Stinkin' Problem
  • A retirement home for old lawnmowers and them blocked up rusty cars
    He couldnt read or write a word and he stu-stuttered when he spoke
    But he was Albert Einstein when it came to them nuts and bolts
    Everybody called him Greasy but his real name was Bert
    At least that's what it said on his blue Sonoko shirt
    He kept a Maytag full of Millers in the shade of a cottonwood
    Lord he loved to pop a top just like he loved to pop a hood

    CHORUS:
    He was the world's greatest shade tree mechanic
    He fixed outboards, cars and toasters and worn out winter fans
    No job was too big on the planet
    for the world's greatest shade tree mechanic

    Old Greasy died one mornin adoin' what he loved best
    He didnt have him no will but we all knew his last request
    So we put his toolbox in the trunk and him behind the wheel
    And sent him off to heaven in a Goodyear Boneville

    CHORUS
    Now when he wasnt snoozin' in his hammock
    He was the greatest shade tree mechanic

    Take it easy Greasy
