"Let's Lynch The Landlord" as written by Eric Reed Boucher, Raymond John Pepperelle, Geoffrey Lyall and Darren Henley....
The Landlord's here to visit
They're blasting disco down below
Says, "I'm doubling up the rent
'Cause the building's condemned
You're gonna help me buy City Hall"

But we can
You know we can
But we can, you know we can
Let's lynch the landlord man

I tell him 'turn on the water'
I tell him 'turn on the heat'
Tells me 'all you ever do is complain'
Then they search the place when I'm not here

But we can
You know we can
But we can
You know we can
Let's lynch the landlord
Let's lynch the landlord
Let's lynch the landlord man

There's rats chewin' up the kitchen
Roaches up to my knees
Turn the oven on, it smells like Dachau, yeah
Till the rain pours through the ceiling

But we can
You know we can
But we can
You know we can
Let's lynch the landlord
Let's lynch the landlord
Let's lynch the landlord man

The landlord man

    General CommentGreat song. Faith No More do a good cover of this with a lounge type feel to it.

    General CommentThis, like a lot of their songs, is really catchy. I just listened to it about three hours ago and it's really stuck in my head. In true punk style, they are straightforward and get right to the point. I mean, we know what it means...pretty much. Haha.

    General Comment"Turn the oven on, it smells like Dachau, yeah" is a reference to the Dachau concentration camp.
