ZZ Top Trilogy

written by: Mark Staniforth

i. Fandango (1975)

do you remember wearing skintight pants
there on a crowded island?
Everybody in the whole cell block
spread like an eagle for you.

 

ii. Eliminator (1983)

I like the enchiladas
and her brand new low cut blouse:
She likes the art museum
and machine guns.

 

iii. Afterburner (1985)

I'll shoot it to you straight:
I was lying there thinking about basketball.
It feels so right: when you reach the end
you do it over again.
