About the song
I'll tell you later, this is a ficticious song by John, written by him in 1973 while he was at Ball State University getting his music degree there, this was made into a rock and roll record and had radio airplay in Indiana and Lousiville, Kentucky, and was on "jukeboxes" in Indiana, was sold in stores, the record label of John's and his dad, was written about in BILLBOARD magazine in New York City around 1974 in a small article. This is a super HOT rock song by John, and will be later "thickened and fattened up and given more balls" in the future, with digital delay.
Listen to me now
Come and listen what I say
Gonna tell you 'bout
Alabama D.A.
A funny little man
With a funny little hat, no
He's got a cane of ivory
And a big fat Siamese cat

Long long ago
When the river was a stream
Alabama met
His Mississippi queen
She didn't have a cane
And she didn't have a cat, no
But what she had
It was enough to make that Siamese SCAT!

Play it hard
Play it long
Turn me on
I'm a funny little man
And you're a funny little woman
I want that funny little woman NOW!
