Description
There's been a lot of recent talk about Hobos, but no songs as of yet. Here's an alternative version of the next His Boy Sherman song yet to be released.

Someone is about to get in trouble for this.... Me!

Lyrics
I MET MY TRUE LOVE AT A SHRINER PARADE
IT WAS THE LAST PLACE THAT I THOUGHT I'D GET LAID
DRESSED IN RAGS THAT A THRIFT STORE WOULD REFUSE
SHE DIDN'T EVEN WEAR A PAIR OF MATCHING SHOES

MY LITTLE HOBO COULDN'T GET ANY CUTER
PUSHING HER TRASH AROUND, YOU KNOW SHE'S NO POLLUTER
PICKS UP THE CIGARETTE YOU JUST THREW DOWN
AND TAKES THE LAST PUFF WITH HER FROWN TURNED UPSIDE DOWN

THIS TOWN'S A DRAG
BUT THERE'S A TRASH CAN FIRE

THERE'S A BOX CAR
LET'S GO FOR A RIDE

I wish the song would have come back after the "Hey, what's going on?" part. Would have been perfect.

This song is very wryly humorous. Great commentary on our time as I swear this song is about a woman in my town (except we don't have a Shriner Parade).

Cah - uter!
LOL! That was a pretty quirky lyric now wasn't it?

In my town, the Shriners wear a fez. You never know what's under a fez, and who would mess with a clown that rides a mini bike in the day time?

Love those Shriners - always doing it to help kids.

"Here's an alternative version of the next His Boy Sherman song yet to be released." What a killer preface! How could I not get excited about this, it almost sounds philosophical.

Hey Freebird!

If you can believe it, the song got even better once we took the mic away from the bass player!
