This Way to the Egress give their take on the 1925 classic "Show Me the Way to Go Home" Each member wrote their own verses.


Show me the way to go home.
I am tired and i wanna go to bed.
I had a little drink about an hour ago
and it went right to my head.
Where ever I may roam
by land or sea or foam
you'll always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

~Tyrant Taylor Galassi's Verse~
Once you know I was in love
With a big girl from a small town
She used to tie me up and call me sweetie pie
Then she'd sit on me until I cried.
Whenever we made love,
you'd hear us humping til the sun rose to the top.
And all she'd have to do is spread her legs real wide and
she would just swallow me up.

~Saddle Sarah Shown's Verse~
You think a girl like me would know.
There are things best left unsaid,
So I pulled down my britches and up my skirt
and i hopped right to his bed
But as hard as I have tried,
to leave my demons alone
I cant get passed his sweet little ass
Show me the way to his home.

~Joe 'Bone" Lynch~
Show me to play the trombone
I cant get it into my head
I tried a couple notes about an hour ago and
it sounded like an elephant was dead.
Where ever my slide may roam.
It sounds pretty awful to me
So if you want to hear a song,
Show me to play the trombone.

~Jaclyn "The" Kidd~
Somebody's tappin my phone
Im tired and I want to go to bed
I surfed all night on the internet
I found a friend he said his name was Fred
Where ever I may roam
Big brothers gonna watch my phone
now I'm sitting in jail cos of dirty emails
somebody tapped my phone

~John "Toobie Doo" Wentz~
Sitting by myself at a bar saturday night
"Can i have a cigarette" says the pretty girl to my right
So i lit her up a smoke i followed up with a joke
We took a walk I took her home sealed the deal went for broke.
But in the morning I awoke she's in her sunday jumper
Apparently I bagged me a bible thumper
So I ran I swam I do what I can to escape that hot water
Cos I just spent the night with the preachers daughter oh shit!
