With A Suitcase Shaped Like That

  • (John James)

    I came from the plane saw the customs man was standing there
    And everybody shuffling like they're hiding something they should declare
    Then it caught his eye, Come here, he said, I said, Why
    All he would say
    We check everyone with a suitcase shaped like that

    He turned me inside out and then he turned me upside down
    Because a banjo player is not the most respected man in town
    But he said I was o.k. and he sent me on my way
    All he would say
    We check everyone with a suitcase shaped like that

    Then I wanted some insurance for this crazy life of mine
    I read all the papers, signed on the dotted line
    But then it caught his eye, he said, Medical check, I said, Why
    All he would say
    We check everyone with a suitcase shaped like that

    He made me take off my clothes, he looked in my eyes and my ears
    And in one or two places I'm sure you would rather not hear
    But he told me I was fine so I grabbed those clothes of mine
    All he would say
    We check everyone with a suitcase shaped like that

    It was late one night at a club, I was going away
    This pretty girl came up, she said, Iain, would you like to stay
    When I asked her why she smiled and winked one eye
    All she would say
    I check everyone with a suitcase shaped like that
    And she did

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)
