Story behind the song
The first time I met Nita Dunn, I heard her sing and, wondered whether she would sing this song for me. She did.
Lyrics
You were always out for kicks You flew downhill on two thin sticks Wore no condoms with strange chicks Tried your hand at politics Schuss Bang! You hit that tree Schuss Bang! You couldn’t ski Schuss Bang! You’re history Schuss Bang! A tree cut Sonny down If I could just turn back time Hills of snow, you’d never climb We’d both still be in our prime You wouldn’t sing, you’d pantomime Schuss Bang! Ain’t got you babe Schuss Bang! Too close a shave Schuss Bang! An early grave Schuss Bang! A tree cut Sonny down Dogs would howl when you would sing Pitch was an elusive thing There was plenty in that pine That took away that sap of mine Hey Hey Hey Hey Things have changed ‘round here, it’s true Your daughter’s not the girl you knew And when the doctor’s work is through I guess I’ll call her sonny too Schuss Bang! You hit that tree Schuss Bang! You couldn’t ski Schuss Bang! You’re history Schuss Bang! A tree cut Sonny down
