Liner Notes: 

writeandwrong and I started FAWM (and then 50/90) at the same time. After a few conversations we realized she used to work for Sierra Online and I have always been a HUGE Sierra game fan. This song was...INEVITABLE! writeandwrong wrote the lyrics and I added the music and performed it.

Note: For anyone who is not familiar with Larry Laffer, he was the main character from a computer game series called Leisure Suit Larry from Sierra.

lol John, yup... inevitable is an understatement! haha! Awesome work! You would have been an excellent addition to the Sierra Online team! ~Cheryl~

Lyrics: 

My Name is Larry Laffer

Don't got much money
Can't hold no job
What I get I spend on cheap booze
And Leisure Suits from the thrift shop

Down on the corner
That's where I'm at
Lookin' for Passionate Patty
Big busted with a hairy cat

My name is Larry Laffer
And I love big juggs
~
My name is Larry Laffer
I love tender duck
The juicier the better
Cause I'm down on my luck

Day in and day out
I'm in a dry spell
The quest for love leads me astray
On the road back to wet dream hell

My name is Larry Laffer
And I love big juggs
~
My name is Larry Laffer
I love tender duck
The juicier the better
Cause I'm down on my luck

Been with Fawm and Cherry
Been with Faith and Eve
Been with Suzi and Bambi
But every time I get close
They tie me up and leave!

My name is Larry Laffer
And I love big juggs
~
My name is Larry Laffer
I love tender duck
The juicier the better
Cause I'm down on my luck

Great disco groove you've got going, love the 16ths percussive-wah thing (is that on guitar? or a synth?). Nice solo. Not familiar with that game but it's a funny lyric anyway! A little bit Zappa-ish?

LOL and a nice trip back to the 70's. As Bill mentioned, I was reminded of show themes like Shaft and Starsky and Hutch. This was just sooo fun to listen to!

Oh yeah, this is some great cheap leisure suit music for sure.
At least he's straightforward about his likes.
The wah guitar is totally disco.
You've really created a little time capsule here of musical goodness.
Hilarious lyrics and a perfect vocal delivery.
