The White Stripes – Icky Thump

Ya he, icky thump
Who’d a thunk?
Sittin’ drunk
On a wagon to Mexico

Her hair
What a chump
And my head
Got a bump
When I hit it on the radio

Redhead senorita
Lookin’ dead
Came to, said
‘I need a bed’ in Espanol

So I gave ’em drink of water
I’m gonna sing around the collar
Well, I don’t need a microphone

Icky thump
With the lump
In my throat
Grab my coat
And now it’s reckoned
I was ready to go

Yeah, I swam beside the hair
She had one white eye
One blank stare
Lookin’ up, lyin’ there

On a stand in her hair
Was a candy cane
Black rum, sugar cane
Dry eye
Somethin’ strange!

La la
La la la la la la la la la la la la

Well, Americans
What, nothin’ better to do?
Why don’t you kick yourself out?
You’re an immigrant too

Who’s usin’ who?
What should we do?
Well, you can’t be a pimp
And a prostitute too

Icky thump
Handcuffed to a bunk
Robbed blind
Looked around
And there was nobody else

Left alone
I hit myself with a stone
Went home
And learned how to clean up after myself
