"Hey Pete" as written by and Peter Thomas Steele....
Hey Peter, where are you going with that axe in your hand?
Hey Peter, where are you going with that axe in your hand?

I'm gonna kill my lady
cause I caught her screwing around
with some other men
I'm gonna kill my lady
cause I caught her fucking
around with some other men
(I really don't go for that shit.)

Hey Peter, you know I heard you cut your woman down
Hey Peter, you know I heard you cut your woman down
Cut her down to the ground

Last night I killed my lady
I caught her screwing around
with every guy in town
Last night I killed my lady
I caught her screwing around
all over this town

Hey Peter, where you're gonna run to now?
Hey Peter, where you're gonna go?

I'll take that D-train
take it down to Brighton Beach
to bay seven
I'll take that D-train
take it down to Brighton Beach, Brighton Beach
I'll see my baby to heaven

I'll see my baby to heaven

    General Commentpete's own version of the song "hey joe"
    i think the lines that say it all are "last night i killed my lady, cause i caught her screwing around all over this town"

    im sure we've all felt it once... or will.

    when someone hurt you so much that you just wish they where dead. no matter how much you loved them, they crushed this love and when you cant love them what can you do? hate them.

    since love and hate are both extreme emotions, we can see why peter would want to kill 'his woman' for 'fucking around with some other man'.

    oh, on the subject.
    "hey joe" was a great song too.
