Rut For Your Life is the final track on the Rutles album Rutle Soul. It was written primarily by Ron Nasty, but credited to Nasty/McQuickly.
The song details the narrator's girlfriend who he would rather see alive than to be caught playing poker with another girl (according to the lyrics, "I'd rather see you alive little girl than to play poker with another girl"). The narrator then warns the girlfriend if she is infact caught she will be sent to an insane asylum ("..catch you with another chick you're in the Ruthouse, little girl").
The song was supposedly inspired by a nightmare Nasty had after eating too much spaghetti after a concert in PopsicleStick Park in Santa Clausita on the West Coast.
