Baby, Would you eat that there snack cracker
In your special outfit for me, please?

Yo ye pharoahs, let us walk
Through this barren desert, in search of truth
And some pointy boots, and maybe a few snack crackers.

Baby, you make me wanna walk like a camel.
Walk!

Who's in charge here?
Where's my Captain's wafers?
Don't go around hungry now, the way you eat that oatmeal pie,
Makes me just wanna die, baby!

You make me wanna walk like a camel.
Walk!

Say, you don't think there's any way I can get that quarter
From underneath your pointy boot, do ya?
All I want is just one more oatmeal pie.
Little Debbie, Little Debbie!
I'm a'comin on home, baby, 'cause you make me wanna walk
Like a camel

Yikes, that was a particularly bad trainwreck coming out of Stray Cats Rock This Town. Queue started a bit early?
Great Live band @ the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto!
In the movie "Sling Blade" the boys had their own band and would sit around the living room and front porch making all sorts of noise.   This song reminds me of that.

Great movie though if you haven't seen it.
You're starting to lose it, Mr. Bill. 
A truly original idea in music. Love this band and what they do. "The Corn Rocket" is a personal favorite. Heard them first hear on RP. Payed cash money for everything the ever released.
Best Cracker in Show
Not a good listen.  It hurts.
It's not really SCOTS without Leslie Land on bass.
this is exactly what I needed to hear right now... 
Easy 10.  One of my all-time favorite bands!

Dusty bottomed Wranglers. Sweaty brow. Beer in hand. Swaying hips. Love it!
Southern culture has always been on the skids, and us natives are quite proud of the way it slithers and slides .... kind of like how a camel walks if'n it was wearing pointy boots.

YEEEEHAW, baby!
If you're an American, it's divine madness!  {#Cool}  Nothing quite like it....
Yes, MORE PSYCHOBILLY!
Give me Gretsches! Gun CLub! Cramps!

One of the most fun bands you'll ever see live.  Rick Miller is a Surfabilly God, and Mary will steal your heart.
"On the skids" indeed. Awful.
1990 or so, these guys just laid waste to a small packed club in lil ole Gainesville...will never forget it...
Yeah babeh! Bill, your KPIG roots are showing ;-)

Love SCotS. 
Ok now, howzabout some Captain Beefheart?!

truly a guilty pleasure
Weird Al just released Lame Claim to Fame today. Not a direct parody of this song, but surely "in the style of". The style and guitar line are dead on. And I wouldn't have known if it hadn't been for RP.
It's a good idea to stay away from anyone who sounds remotely similar to that guy.
Way too funny................Help!
G'damn I love this song...."Little Debbie, Little Debbie I'm-a-comin-on home bayyybeeeee!!!!"
haa gotta love it.. {#Cheers}

Pour it on boys!

What fun it is listening to this on beautiful morning, it makes you just want to get up and dance.


Not the B52's ?

SCOS usually not my style, but this is what I needed on this already overworked Monday morning...

He's talking, oddly enough, about his woman's cameltoe.

I Love it. Makes me smile now, just as it did then.
Okay, now I understand why people like this band.
little debbie! little debbie!
Flirting With Disaster.  Great Film.
Man does this song bring back memories.  This is a 12.    LOVE THIS

Great tune, really fun band!
@bladerunner - Where are you from? I'm from Memphis, TN and I think this is "Most Excellent". Maybe it's a cultural thing.
Just one more oatmeal pie

this is awful crap
I saw these guys at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass last year. They rocked out and put on a great show, go-go dancer and all.
Little Debbie...Little Debbie!
Thanks for playing this song, one of the best on the lp.
It don't matter if your pants are shiny......
Awwwww! Little Debbie!  I'm coming on home!
 
Hey!  You're playing my song!
I remember that in some select retail outlets they put a sticker on the cellophane to cover the image of the "used" condom.
I haven't heard this song since 1996. Thanks Bill! Brings back great high school days! :-D
We be dancin' here..... like a camel!
Sound like Steve Martin
I've see SCOTS two times live, and they are excellent.  They are goofing on southern culture which if you see how they dress you would understand - keyboardist in overalls, bass player with bouffant hairdo.  Great guitar work if you get a chance to see them.

This song is too funny....  Always reminds me of Sam Rockwell's character in "The Green Mile" — I guess it's the accent, and Moon Pies?

Its a good thing I've got a cool boss

ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuweeeee baby!

This is a good comparison.  The only difference is I'm pretty sure they are making fun of themselves and I'm not sure the B-52's ever did that.  They didn't take themselves too seriously (I don't see how they could with the kind of music they made) but Southern Culture on the Skids has a distinctly mocking tone to it.

This was playing when I tuned in tonight, and this is why I love RP.
Okay, if anyone has ever watched a camel walk, they'll notice that a camel will put both left feet down, then both right feet, instead of left-front-right-rear, right-front-left-rear.  The distribution of weight enables a camel to stay on top of the sand instead of sinking into it.  This also works for humans when they're walking on sand, except instead of walking heel-to-toe, if a person plants the entire foot on the sand with their weight evenly balanced, they're less likely to sink. (It's like wearing snowshoes.)

I have absolutely NO idea how this factoid applies to the song. {#Whistle}
Too much fun.  I'll have to try to see these guys live.
I have this on my MP3 player, and it was all I could do to keep from laughing out loud while I was watering plants.  Glad there was no one in the nursery (and I checked, because one can never be to careful, with Big Brother watching.) 

I"m still trying to understand this band, but I'm also recognizing that it's probably impossible. I love them, no matter what.

Genius!
Love it, but I am a big fan of old garage rock. Not everyone,s cup of tea.

Why did I think beyond the shadow of a doubt that this was The Butthole Surfers?

Sorry, this gets old quick and I've heard it too many times already on RP.
I always enjoy SCOTS music!
I can't stop laughing (and howling)!

David Byrne meets Stan Ridgeway meets way too much alcohol!

reminds me of the B-52s

Understandable.

I can't help it - I just LOVE this band!  They really are the "other B-52's from the wrong side of the tracks."  So much fun - short and sweet and shocking. By the time one of their songs is over, you catch yourself scratching your head and going, "Huh? Gotta listen to that one again, because I think I musta blacked out for a minute..." {#Roflol}

LITTLE DEBBIE LITTLE DEBBIE!

Greatest Band from Chapel Hill Ever.
I just tuned in ... to THIS!!  AHHHOOOO!!!  {#Cowboy}
{#Curtain}  Requests this song ... `cuz it makes me smile! {#Whipit}
No "Cramps" on RP? Bill if this gets in, how about something from "A date with Elvis"?
OMGWTF!!  Gonna' ask my little Debbie to wear her 'special outfit' tonight! OOOHWEEEEE!!

They do very much have that B-52s vibe.
I have been out of town for the week and unable to listen to RP.  Oh, how I have missed it and missed fun songs such as this.  {#Tongue}
{#Curtain}  Dubs this my new favorite country song!   {#Cheers}   Thank you Radio Paradise.{#Whipit}
This song makes me so happy.
i used to hate this shit when it came out.  now, i've upgraded my opinion to "ambivalent."
I get the feeling that I should investigate this band much further - they seem to me to have a nice combination of great musicianship and quirky sense of humor.

Fun band to see. The drummer stands the whole time.  No other band can make that claim.
 
Sorry, the Stray Cats can :)
It's interesting how it sounded like earlier Talking Heads (couldn't hear it real well over some loud people in shop.)
This is f*ckin' weird, but fun. True psychobilly :o)
Nice segue from the Talking Heads...
play it LOUDER
Yeehaw!  My favorite SCOTS song.
Owwwwwoowww!

So fun in show...Get out that Fried Chicken!~!~!~!
Lil Debby, Lil Debby!!!{#Bananajam}
That was fun.   

But for the love of God don't allow this to enter rotation more than once in a month really long period of time.
Little Debbie, little Debbie! Thanks Bill!

Almost certainly the sole example of a used condom on an album cover.

And completely fitting its context.

"Little Debbie, little Debbie I'm a comin' on home..."

What's not to love — these folks just make me giggle everytime I hear 'em. {#Good-vibes}

I saw these guys at a little place in Wilmington, NC called Jacob's Run, just a few days after the first Gulf War broke. (It was the night after Saddam started bombing Israel.)

I was ready for a break from the media BS (and the whole thing in general).

I got my wish.

For a couple of hours, it was like there was no politics in the world, no hatred, no strife (but plenty of turmoil!).

If you've never heard these folks play live, then you've never really heard them.

It could very well be that there is no way to actually "record" them, because what they do is only part of what they are about. When they play a show, you become an integral part of it, and the band becomes merely a catalyst to the event.

One might very well brilliantly record the audio of the event, but that would stop short of actually recording the event. I mean, how the hell can the absolute joy of an audience tossing fried chicken around the room with depraved abandon really be captured (even with video)?

I talked with the band after the show, and they were just the nicest folks I've ever met; absolutely polite and friendly, without a trace of "star quality".

Even if you don't like their records, if you can't have a good time at one of their shows, it's just because you are inherently incapable of having a good time!

I got a great deal that night. I laughed (didn't cry), kissed 4 bucks goodbye, then walked the five blocks back to my crib with my sweetie, and left the TV and radio off 'till the next afternoon.

If you ever get a chance to see SCOTS, don't pass it up!

As bizarre as this song is, I'm so glad it came on this evening.  I can now keep prepping lesson plans for the upcoming weeks after having a hearty laugh, a glass of milk and an oatmeal creme pie.  {#Dance}
Finally—a song I can use to express my innermost feelings.
...hot damn!..


(i can't help but love listening to this)

Although I have mixed feelings about this album, I really dig this tune. 9

Gotta give him some credit for testicular fortitude. I just know if I had uploaded this it would have been killed. Dead.
B52 Hits the Talking Heads with a BIG glob of chewing tobacco and it sticks .. . . .
Lobster rock.....south much fun
