“Slaughterhouse Rock”

Denim, basements, and liquor

My tits are out so I’m falling in love tonight.

1, 2, 3, 4 Slaughterhouse Rock,

I’ve got a will and I’ve got a way—

so let’s play this game.

The game, the game, the game,

The zippers change but game stays the same.

1, 2, 3, 4 Slaughterhouse Rock,

Come on and do the Slaughterhouse Rock with me—

till my back is chapped and my knees are cracked,

I’m not alive to tell you what’s happening.

1, 2, 3, 4 Slaughterhouse Rock,

Love looks different from the backseat.

Fingernails in leather seats, cigarette stains on your teeth, maybe

we’re Sid and Nancy.

Sid and Nancy. Sid and Nancy. Sid and Nancy. Sid killed Nancy.
