"Killed By Death" as written by Michael Burston, Philip Campbell, Peter Gill and Ian Kilmister....
Shut up!

If you squeeze my lizard
I'll put my snake on you
I'm a romantic adventurer
And a reptile too

But it don't make no difference
'Cause I ain't gonna be, easy, easy
The only time I'm easy's when I'm
Killed by death, killed by death
Killed by death, come on!

I'm a lone wolf ligger
But I ain't no pretty boy
I'm a backbone shiver
And I'm a bundle of joy

But it don't make no difference
'Cause I ain't gonna be, easy, easy
The only time I'm easy's when I'm
Killed by death, killed by death
Killed by death, come on!

Killed by death, Killed by death
Killed by death, come on!
Come on, I said you're killed by death
Come on!
Killed by

Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death, ha-ha-ha-ha!
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death
Aah!

Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by a bunch of death!

Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death
Shout out your mouth, shout out your mouth!

Come on!
Killed by death
Killed by death
Killed by death

I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead
I'm dead, I'm dead
Dead, dead, dead, killed by death
Aah!

    General CommentFuck all you idiots this song isn't meant to be complex elitist art crap, this is straight forward rock n roll and murders 99% of other music. Fucking killer song.

    Motorhead are one of the greatest bands to ever grace the world of music, and this is a fine example.

    General CommentSometimes words that sound good together, have a great rhythm and cadence, etc. are not always understandable or could even be simplistic.

    It's only rock and roll, man! Turn it up to 11 and enjoy!

    General CommentFuck you! Lemmy is a legend and so many great bands owe a debt of gratitude to him.

    The first verse is about sex

    Basically I think this song is saying that the only time he will be comfortable or esy to get along with will be when he is dead or killed by death...

    General CommentThis song could mean being killed ONLY by death OR being killed by everything BUT death.
    Fist one is someone brave and bold and the second one is the exact opposite. Even though I strongly believe that Lemmy is referring to the first meaning.

    General CommentLemmy will be the first to admit that his lyrics ain't rocket science. Nothing wrong with that.

    He's an antisocial loner who doesn't see eye to eye with many others at all. He ain't easy to get along with.

    ... the only time he's going to do anything willingly and without raising hell about it is when death comes knocking because it's inevitable and pointless to fight it.

    Simple.

    Oh, and it's one of Motorhead's best songs ever.
