lyrics

I was sittin' on the back porch on a steamy summer night
I was eatin' fried chicken when along comes this guy
He was crusin’ on a cycle with his name on the plates
He had wrap-around sunglasses and a scar upon his face

Big Joe, what are you about
Big Joe, I got to find out
Big Joe uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Wherever you’re goin', I wanna go

He kept tossin' out these papers as he cruised around the block
Each time he pulled a wheely I thought my heart would stop
Then he slammed onto the brake, skid unto my lawn
And I thought goodness gracious, he’s coming on strong

Big Joe, what are you about
Big Joe, I got to find out
Big Joe uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Wherever you’re goin', I wanna go

I been waiting all of my life for a man on a big white horse to ride by
Now he’s here on his two hot wheels and I’m going to find out how heaven feels…

Then he started coming to me with a walk just like John Wayne
He had a sneer so mean he put poor Elvis to shame
Then he threw this piece of paper down at my feet and before I knew what hit me he was down upon his knees

Would you like a pizza mama with extra cheddar cheese
At Big Joe’s Pizzeria uh, uh, we aim to please
You can have it with anchovies or spicy till it hurts and if you really want it
I can give you the works… ow…

Then I lifted up my skirt, grabbed it in one hand
Threw one leg around the bike, one are around my man
With our hair to the wind, our face to the sun
Before too long, we were long gone

Big Joe, what are you about
Big Joe, I got to find out
Big Joe uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Wherever you’re goin', I wanna go

I been waiting all of my life for a man on a big white horse to ride by
Now he’s here on his two hot wheels and I’m going to find out how heaven feels…

Big Joe, what are you about
Big Joe, I got to find out
Big Joe uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Wherever you’re goin', I wanna go

Mmmm, love those pepperoni’s
Extra cheese please
Spicy, finger lickin’ good
