WESLEY WILLIS Greatest Hits Volume 2


I think it was about 1997 or so when Wesley Willis played at Sluggo's here in Pensacola. It was Halloween night. I remember seeing him at the bar falling asleep on the counter. I loved the show - hearing him scream "Fuck you!" and "Suck a caribou's ass!" The best moment of all was getting up onstage to get head butted by him. I also will never forget how when he bumped my forehead my teeth rattled from the impact and the next day my forehead was sore.
Sadly, Wesley died of leukemia in 2003. What I loved the most about Wesley was how honest he was with how he felt. Doesn't everyone want to say at least once, "You need to leave me alone with your war hell ride, punk!"
R.I.P. Wesley.

Here are the lyrics for They Kicked Me Out of Church

Once upon a time, I was cursing in Daniel's Chapel A.M.E. Zion Church
I called one of the deacons a motherfucker
Reverend Henry E. Miller preached about my vulgar language
He told the congregation in the sanctuary that I got a nasty filthy mouth

They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church

For the second time, I told the preacher to fuck off
I also told Reverend Henry E. Miller to suck a male camel's dick
He got so tired of my bullshit
He told one of the deacons to throw me out
He then escorted me to the door

They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church

When I went to church that same Sunday, I picked up a 2 x 4
I went up to the pulpit and clocked the preacher in the head
He fell to the floor unconscious
Suddenly, the police was called on me
I then ran out of the church with a grin on my face being chased after by the cops

They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church
They threw me out of church
