"Ricky's Hand" as written by and Daniel Miller Frank Tovey....
Scratched his head, then pulled his ear
Reached out for a glass of beer
Ricky's hand [Repeat: x1]

From the pocket it pulled five pound
Ricky bought another round
Ricky's hand [Repeat: x1]

In the dark it found his zip
Wiped his mouth when he was sick
Ricky's hand [Repeat: x3]

Six pints later he waved goodbye
Picked his nose and squashed a fly
Ricky's hand [Repeat: x1]

Slamming the door it grasped the wheel
Now Ricky's full of man appeal
Ricky's hand [Repeat: x1]

Ricky contravened the highway code
The hand lies severed at the side of the road
Ricky's hand [Repeat: x3]

    General CommentA guy went to a bar, got smashed, drove drunk, and lost his hand (and possibly his life) in a car accident

    General CommentI love this song. I first learned about it when I downloaded an live cover version by Ministry.

    Song MeaningThe meaning is in the lyrics. Ricky gets drunk. Ricky drives. Ricky loses his hand.
