  • This town was built on muddy stilts
    By the lunatic parade
    It rains like Revelations
    Gonna wash these freaks away
    Some girls wanna hold your hand
    And some girls like to pray
    Well my girl takes her drinks
    With dust and rusty razor blades

    As I lie between these covers
    I wanna tell her that I love it
    When she chokes me in the
    Backseat of her riverboat 'cause

    She's my man
    And we got all the balls we need
    When you taste that pavement
    You're amazed
    She smells your sympathy
    So bye bye ladies
    May the best queen hold the crown
    For the most bush sold on the levee
    My my, how word gets around
    She strangles for a good time
    And she kills my self-control
    She's my man, don't be too sad sonny
    'Cause she'll never be your woman no more

    Someday soon, this dank lagoon's
    Gonna sink right into hell
    They'll hide you from Big Ida
    At the Sho' Enough Hotel
    The Ladies of the evening's just
    A tombstone in your bed
    Well my girl eats a wounded preacher
    'tween two loaves of bread

    I know she's up to something
    But how can I run when she's just
    Keel-hauled twenty-on to nothing
    I'll stay next to the steel coal oven 'cause

    She's my man
    And we got all the balls we need
    When you taste that pavement
    You're amazed
    She smells your sympathy
    So bye bye ladies
    May the best queen hold the crown
    For the most bush sold on the levee
    My my, how word gets around
    She strangles for a good time
    And she kills my self-control
    She's my man, don't be too sad sonny
    'Cause she'll never be your woman no more

    All you need's just a fist of a tear-stained bunny
    When the good ship comes to town
    Who said loves a bitch'll sit next to me honey
    Because this old boat's gonna run aground
    Cause I don't want to be the burden
    Or your jealous bastard
    I don't wanna be the Tarzan of your next epic disaster

    She's my man
    And we got all the balls we need
    When you taste that pavement
    You're amazed
    She smells your sympathy
    So bye bye ladies
    May the best queen hold the crown
    For the most bush sold on the levee
    My my, how word gets around
    She strangles for a good time
    And she kills my self-control
    She's my man, don't be too sad sonny
    'Cause she'll never be your woman no more

    She's my man, can't you feel her comin'
    She's my man, she's gonna keep you runnin'
    She's my man, she's gonna teach you something
    She's me, she's my man
