Souljacker part I
by Eels

Album: Souljacker (2001)
Charted: 30
  • Twenty two miles of hard road
    Thirty three years of tough luck
    Forty four skulls buried in the ground
    Crawling down through the muck
    Oh yeah

    Johnny don't like the teacher
    Johnny don't like the school
    One day Johnny is going to do somethin'
    Show 'em he's nobody's fool
    Oh yeah

    [Chorus:]
    Sisters brothers make better lovers
    Family affairs down under the covers...
    Trailer parks the broken hearts
    Won't let you leave until you're bleeding

    Sally don't like her daddy
    Sally don't like her friends
    Sally and Johnny watchin' TV
    Waitin' for it to end
    Oh yeah

    [Chorus]

    Twenty two miles of hard road
    Thirty three years of tough luck
    Forty four skulls buried in the ground
    Crawling down through the muck
    Oh yeah
