Lyrics: Hey man, is that what you call a double?
Hey man, don't want no trouble
Hey man, I could sure use a friend
Hey man, you got some peanuts
Oh man, I'm such a damn klutz
Say man, when does happy hour end

I'll slam one down like a basketball
Two little words kinda say it all

Hey man
Hey man
Hey man

Hey man, you see that girl down there?
Yeah man, I know; it's not polite to stare
Hey man, why don't you send her a drink on me
Hey man, don't cut me off yet
Hey man, my whistle ain't wet
Hey man, I though every fifth one was free

I'll have another if that's okay
Less is more so here's what I got to say

Hey man
Hey man
Hey man

Hey man, I best be leaving
Thanks man, for the evening
Yeah man, you get what you pay for
Okay man, maybe just one more
Two man, then I'm out the door
Three man; might as well make it four

I best just leave now and walk away
Less is more so here's what I got to say

Hey man
Hey man
Hey man

About the Artist
Buddy Moncrief Buddy Moncrief

Somewhere out on New Route 66, about 50 miles west of Sinatra and 75 miles east of Tom Waits, Swanson struts his swingin' and singin'. He loves Dave Frishberg songs and Johnny Walker in a tumbler. He'd like to hear Kurt Elling cover Stone Temple Pilots. Lonnie Johnson is God.

On his latest full-length release "We Can't Party Like We Used To" (2009 Acoustic SwaneeLand), Swanson pounds out 12 original vocal jazz cuts with a cool retro vibe. His bluesy vocals and tasty guitar licks remind of crooners past and present - Sinatra, Cole, John Pizzarelli come to mind - but his clever songwriting has a leaner, edgier feel to it that puts him squarely in the current century.
