  • Lyrics
  • After the Kills opened some Raconteurs shows in the US during the summer of 2008, their vocalist Alison Mosshart cut with The Raconteurs' Jack Lawrence and Jack White a cover of Gary Numan's "Are 'Friends' Electric?." The trio added Queens Of The Stone Age multi-intstrumentalist Dean Fertita, before quickly recording the Horehound album at White's Third Man studio-label complex in Nashville. White described to Rolling Stone the Dead Weather songs such as this one as "very dark, very dangerous. There are synthesizers and acoustic instruments treated so they don't sound like themselves anymore."
  • This song was released as the band's debut single.

  • Tony from Haddon Township, NjI never know how to treat you
    You say I love you but it ain't true
    I'm walking away now
    One step forward and back two

    I like to grab you by the hair
    and hang you up from the heavens

    I don't know how to let you go
    Or if i should keep you
    I don't know how to let you know
    I really do have a reason

    I like to grab you by the hair
    and drag you to the devil


    I never know why I push you
    Judge you Just to confuse you
    I make my hole just to see how
    See through, see if I could hurt you

    I like to grab you by the hair
    and hang you up from the heavens



    I 'd like to grab you by the hair
    and sell you off to the devil

    I never know what mood you'll be
    You might be kind or be cruel to me
    I'm walking away now
    one step forward and back three


    I never know what I'm gonna to do
    I say I'm leaving, but It ain't true
    I got a lot I could do to you
    Nothing you can do to stop me

    I want to grab you by the hair
    I want to grab you by the hair
    I want to grab you by the hair

    and hang you up from the heavens
