In an amblin' van lived a banjo man and his name was Hot Rod Duncan He didn't know why they called him that but he just went along with it Hot Rod Duncan always felt ashamed Hot Rod Duncan didn't know his name (Poor Hot Rod) Now Hot Rod had a savvy dad who died for the business part The instrument was relevant as long as it played like art Hot Rod Duncan di'n't know how to string it Hot Rod Duncan opted just to wing it (Oh well) Soon Hot Rod was the best because he traveled well and wise The van was actually an electric spaceship in disguise Hot Rod Duncan hail'd from the Appalachians Hot Rod Duncan transcend'd global nations (Yee-ha) (Go, Hot Rod. Take it, Hot Rod.) (He said take it.) (What's the matter, can't take it? You gotta remember to string up that banjo. I tell you what.) One time he flew his banjo to the planet Jupiter Among the rife intelligent life he managed to locate her Hot Rod Duncan found his unicorn Hot Rod Duncan: magically reborn Eventually he came to see the banjo was his friend He help'd that girl to spacey whirls she learn'd him how to bend Hot Rod Duncan strung that banjo well Hot Rod Duncan played it purty swell (You know what I'm talkin' 'bout?) When Hot Rod came to know his name he returned to planet Earth and this is where (by just a hair) he finally glean'd his worth Hot Rod Duncan: legend in his time Hot Rod Duncan reasond with a rhyme (They adopted a dog named Cloister) The he and she would guarantee a gleeful galaxy They were so happy he phoned her pappy and the rest is history
