  • Song Lyrics:
    Alright... Now this is a song, about phonograph records

    (softly )
    Alright, this is a song, about phonograph records

    Don't leave your records in the su-hu-hu-n
    They'll warp and they won't be good for anyone
    Don't leave your records in the su-hu-hu-n
    They'll get all wavy and they just won't run

    They just won't play, just won't play, just won't play, just won't play,
    just won't play, just won't play, just won't play, just won't play,
    just won't play, just won't play, just won't play no more

    (Chuckle)

    Well I had this record that I really did like
    It was the last one they had in the store
    I left it laying on the car back seat
    And now it just won't play no more

    Don't leave your records in the su-hu-hu-n
    They'll warp and they won't be good for anyone
    Don't leave your records in the su-hu-hu-n
    They'll get all wavy and they just won't run

    They just won't play, just won't play, just won't play, just won't play,
    just won't.... (MAKES SOUND OF NEEDLE SCRATCHING RECORD SURFACE)
    ... No more

    (More record scratches sounds)

    (Banjo playing, then plays mocking hung-up groove)
    (davidlougy)

    I had a garage sale last June. It was about 90 degrees and I was selling a turntable. I put an LP on it. I did not care much for the LP, but it was in the sun. In about fifteen minutes, that record warped as severely as a record could possible warp.

    I was surprised how much it warped in a short time.

    Don't leave your records in the sun.

    My wife and I heard this song at a coffee shop on University Avenue in San Diego in 1976. The performer (probably John Hartford) also performed a light-hearted plea for remuneration "Tips Inside the Jar."
