about

The Skivvies: Lauren Molina and Nick Cearley featuring Alison Fraser

lyrics

From the day he was born, he was trouble.
He was the thorn in his mutter's side
She tried in vain.
But he never caused her nothing but shame.
He left home the day she died.
Eins, zwei, drei
From the day she was gone All he wanted
was rock and roll, porn, und a motor bike
Shooting up junk. He was a low-down, cheap little punk.
Taking everyone for a ride.

When Eddie said he didn't like his teddy
You knew he was a no good kid
But When he threatened your life with a switch blade knife --
What a guy. Makes you cry. Und I did.

Everybody shoved him. I very nearly loved him.
I said, "Hey, listen to me. Stay sane inside insanity."
But he locked the door and threw away the key.

But he must have been drawn into something. Making him warn
me in a note which reads: What's it say? What's it say?
I'm out of my head. O, hurry or I may be dead.
They mustn't carry out their evil deeds.

Oh baby let me be, your lovin' teddy bear
Put a chain around my neck, and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be (you teddy bear)

When Eddie said he didn't like his teddy
You knew he was a no good kid
But When he threatened your life with a switch blade knife --
What a guy.
Makes you cry.
Und I did.

When Eddie said he didn't like his teddy
You knew he was a no good kid
When he threatened your life with a switch blade knife --
What a guy.
Makes you cry.
Und I did.
Yeah, yeah, yeah
