LYRICS for Take ‘Em All Down, Fani
by David Cohen

I phoned in to make a fuss, was seethin’ and a seein’ red.
The call was so perfect, so I could win instead.
“Hey Bradley, can you help me and find more votes?” I pled.
He just laughed and hit record. “NO!” was all he said.

Take ’em all down Fani.
Take ‘em down I plea
Take ’em all down Fani.
And (and) (and) Take the blame off a’ me.

I amped up my swag, went looking for a dupe to chide
When I saw a bottle and Rudy sitten’ side by side
I said “Hey Rudy, come help me save my crown”
He said that’ll only work, if my scotch can stick around”

Take ’em all down Fani. Take ‘em down I plea
Take ’em all down Fani.And (and) (and) You take the blame off a’ me.

Took down Ms. Ellis, she copped out right away.
And then there’s John Eastman, waitin’ on his Judgement Day.
Well John my friend, don’t you dare go take a plea.
I said, “Do me a favor man, won’t you lie and keep all of ‘em company?”

Take ’em all down Fani. Take ‘em down I plea
Take ’em all down Fani.And (and) (and) you take the blame off a’ me.

Crazy Ginni follows me,as she lives life in a fog
She said, “Well I can fix it all” and texted Mark her blog
I said, “Way to go Ginni, Now that’s a risky scam”
She said “that’s OK though, I told Clarence ‘bout the plan!”

Take ’em all down Fani. Take ‘em down I plea
Take ’em all down Fani.And (and) (and) you take the blame off a’ me.

Fetch some Huggies now, ’cause I’ll soon be doin’ time.
My shorts are riden’ low, but I don’t believe that’s a crime.
To get back to Miss Fani,she is not the only one
who’s got me in their sights. IIt looks like I am done.

Take ’em all down Fani. Take ‘em down I plea
Take ’em all down Fani.And (and) (and) you take the blame off a’ me.

The Weight by The Band

“The Weight” is a song by the Canadian-American group the Band that was released as a single in 1968 and on the group’s debut album, “Music from Big Pink.” It was their first release under this name, after their previous releases as Canadian Squires and Levon and the Hawks. Written by Band member Robbie Robertson, the song is about a visitor’s experiences in a town mentioned in the lyric’s first line as Nazareth.

The 1969 movie Easy Rider used the song as recorded by The Band, but it was not licensed for the soundtrack album. To deal with this, ABC-Dunhill commissioned Smith, who recorded for the label at the time, to record a cover version of the song for the soundtrack album.

“The Weight” was written by Robbie Robertson, who found the tune by strumming idly on his guitar, when he noticed that the interior included a stamp noting that it was manufactured in Nazareth, Pennsylvania (C. F. Martin & Company is situated there) and he started crafting the lyrics as he played. The inspiration for and influences affecting the composition of “The Weight” came from the music of the American South, the life experiences of band members, particularly Levon Helm, and movies of filmmakers Ingmar Bergman and Luis Buñuel.

The original members of the Band performed “The Weight” as an American Southern folk song with country music (vocals, guitars and drums) and gospel music (piano and organ) elements. The lyrics, written in the first person, are about a traveler’s arrival, visit, and departure from a town called Nazareth, in which the traveler’s friend, Fanny, has asked him to look up some of her friends. According to Robertson, Fanny is based on Frances “Fanny” Steloff, the founder of a New York City bookstore where he explored scripts by Buñuel.

The characters in “The Weight” were based on real people that members of the Band knew, as Helm explained in his autobiography, This Wheel’s on Fire. In particular, “young Anna Lee” mentioned in the third verse is Helm’s longtime friend Anna Lee Amsden, and, according to her, “Carmen” was from Helm’s hometown, Turkey Scratch, Arkansas. “Crazy Chester” was an eccentric resident of Fayetteville, Arkansas, who carried a cap gun. Ronnie Hawkins would tell him to “keep the peace” at his Rockwood Club when Chester arrived.
