"Mr. Waldon" is a song by Chopper One. Initially released as a b-side for the 1995 7"-vinyl single "Free Lunch", the song was later re-recorded and appeared as the twelfth track from the band's sole studio album, Now Playing (later re-issued as simply Chopper One).

Overview

The inspiration for the song comes from the American film actor, Louis Waldon, who lived in West Hollywood, California.

The "Free Lunch" single was produced by Mike Bosley and Geoff Siegel at The Sandbox in Los Angeles and released exclusively on vinyl in 1995 by SideOneDummy Records.

Well, there's a man who lives in Apartment 105
And he swears he used to work with Andy Warhol
And he came after me with gardening shears one day
And now I'm fearing for my life

Please, Mr. Waldon, give me an answer
Please, Mr. Waldon, give me an answer

We thought his ??? ain't nothing but a joke
And he screams in my ears so loud I think I'm going deaf
I caught him putting nails in my back tires yesterday
And now I'm fearing for my life

Please, Mr. Waldon, give me an answer
Please, Mr. Waldon, give me an answer

And he's so angry he will explode
He's so lonely he will die alone
Will die alone

Please, Mr. Waldon, give me an answer
Please, Mr. Waldon, give me an answer
Please, Mr. Waldon, give me an answer (He's so angry, someday he will explode)
Please, Mr. Waldon, give me an answer (He's so lonely, someday he will die alone)
