  • Say what you will but I'm a stinker
    I come crawling up out of my hole
    Dirt in my toes, dirt up my nose
    I'm a perfect curse to pest control

    Seeds and weeds and muddy meals
    Crawling around the earth
    Down in the ground where the sun don't pound
    I hibernate in English turf

    Better believe it, I'm a stinker
    Burning vermin stink
    Watch me get as high as a heat wave, honey
    Tell me what you hound dogs think

    Set in my styles with a beady eye
    I got connections with the underground
    Call me a common rodent boy
    Sitting here safe and sound

    Some molehill mother sauntered by
    Acting like the ace of spades
    Don't give that cutey no reason to shoot me
    When I'm living on the eggs she laid Writer/s: BERNIE TAUPIN, ELTON JOHN
