Subject: RE: Lyric Req: Big Bad Bruce
Tony,

There was a song by this title that I remember hearing on a late-night, US radio show called 'Doctor Demento'. The Chorus went something like:

"Bruce... Big, Bad Bruce,

The hundred-and-forty-second fastest gun in the West."

There was a follow-up song to the same tune about 'Irving - The Son of the hundred-and-forty-second fastest gun in the West.' That's about all I recall. Maybe someone else here will remember more?

Good Luck! - Ian

(If this is the song you're looking for, you may be able to find it on a Dr. Demento recording. I seem to remember some type of compilation or 'Best of...' albums or CDs available.)
