the way i walk is just the way i walk

The way I walk is just the way I walk
The way I talk is just the way i talk
The way I smile is just the way I smile
Touch me baby, and I'll go home wild!

The wat I love is just the way I love
Come on and be my little turtle dog
Touch me baby, it feels so good
I feel it though I wanna be, I don't know if I should

Dee-oo-bee-oo-bee
Doo-bee-doo-bee-doo-waoh!
AAH! AAH! AAH!

The way you love me got to sour my stile
Oh! Little baby, I would say good-bye
Love me baby, love me right
Love me morning, noon and night

" Erick Purkhiser (October 21, 1946 – February 4, 2009), better known as Lux Interior, was an American singer and a founding member of the legendary garage punk band The Cramps.

Born in Stow, Ohio, he grew up in the Akron area with a brother, Mike Purkhiser. He met his wife Kristy Wallace, better known as Poison Ivy, in Sacramento in 1972 allegedly while she was hitchhiking. The couple founded the band and moved from California to Ohio in 1973 and then to New York in 1975 where they became part of the flourishing punk scene.

Interior's name came "from an old car commercial" while his wife's name change was inspired by "a vision she received in a dream". The couple called their musical style psychobilly, originally claiming it to have been inspired by a Johnny Cash song, and later saying that they just using the phrase as "carny terms to drum up business."
Purkhiser died at 4:30am on February 4, 2009, in Glendale, California of a pre-existing heart condition.

  1. That's so sad. I don't know this man very well, but it sounds like he was really inspirational.
