A man walks down the street
All along, along
And Betty, when you call me
And Betty, when you call me
And Betty, when you call me
And whoa, my nights are so long!
Bonedigger, Bonedigger
Call me Al
Dogs in the moonlight
Don't want to end up a cartoon
Gone, gone
Got a short little span of attention
He doesn't speak the language
He ducked back down the alley
He is a foreign man
He is surrounded by the sound, sound
He looks around, around
He says, Why am I short of attention?
He says, Why am I soft in the middle now?
I can be your long lost pal
I can be your long lost pal
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Betty
I can call you Betty
I can call you Betty
I can call you Betty...
I can call you betty...
I need a photo opportunity
I want a shot at redemption
If you'll be my bodyguard
If you'll be my bodyguard
If you'll be my bodyguard...
If you'll be my bodyguard...
If you'll be my bodyguard...
In a cartoon graveyard
It's a street in a strange world
Maybe it's his first time around
Maybe it's the Third World
Mr. Beerbelly, Beerbelly
Now that my role model is
Scatterlings and orphanages
Spinning into infinity
There were incidents and accidents
What if I die here?
When the rest of my life is so hard!
Where's my wife and family?
Who'll be my role model?
Why am I soft in the middle?
With some roly poly, little bat faced girl
You can call me Al
You can call me Al (Call me)
