  • 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 a drink of water
    I'm gonna sing around the collar
    Well, I don't need a microphone

    Yeah
    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 myselfWriter/s: JOHN AKA JOHNE BATTLE BATTLE, JASON "ICEBERG" LARY, JESSE MOBLEY, RASHEAD WEBB, JEVON (PKA "DJ LEN") MOORE, M. BLACKMON, J. PRISTER

  • Guy from Benson, NcI've never understood the appeal of these 2. He's a very run of the mill player and she plays drums on the level of Mickey Dolenz from the Monkees.
  • Drew from Bateville, Inthe best guitar riff of 2007 (the year it was released)
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlOMG! This song is CRAZY! I love The White Stripes!! Geez...Jack can play the crap outta that guitar!!!
  • Ben from Rohnert Park, Casounds like a led zeppelin song
  • Lilbasschick from Los Angeles, CaActually there are a lot of girl drummers, they just aren't famous.
  • Allie from Pine Knob, Mivery interesting song. So simple but pieced together to be very, very intricate!!!!!!!!
    i love the synthisizers!!!
    Meg White is the best!!!
    one of the few female drummers around
  • Emily from Abingdon, VaThank you Luke! I had been wondering what that was!
  • Luke from Sarasota, FlThe synthisizer used was the Univox, one of the first anolog Synthisizers. It dates way back to 1946 and can only play one note at a time - if a chord is played, it comes out broken down and as several notes played in succesion.
  • Ronoc from Flint, Mijolly awesome song
  • Hunter from Marshamellow, Vathis is a vey good song, i love the guitar/elctric keyboard/syntisyzer
  • Kiran from Shelton, Ctgood but overrated. hes written better
  • Zach from Springfield, OhThe effects sound like they come from a Clavioline. Its a very early electronic keyboard. But it also might be from a pitch- shifted guitar effect.
