"You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire" as written by Josh Homme and Mario Lalli....
Dead bull with the life from the low
I'll be massive conquistador
Give me soul and show me the door
Metal heavy, soft at the core
Gimme toro, gimme some more

Pressurize, neutralize
Deep fried, gimme some more

Space flunky, four on the floor
Fortified with the liquor store
This one's down, gimme some more
Gimme toro, gimme some more

Shrunken head I love to adore
B-movie, gimme some gore
Gimme toro, gimme some more
B-movie, gimme some gore

Gimme toro, gimme some more

    General CommentI think this song is pretty much about the need to drop everything that you're doing, grab a gun, get piss drunk, and do whatever the hell you want in a crazy masochistic orgy of bullets and beer.

    I think the lyric "Give me soul or show me the door
    Metal heavy, soft at the core" kinda sums it up pretty well. The need to kick ass, and if no one's kicking ass, then they're gonna be the ones doing it.

    General CommentDo not ignore the title. This song is about stuff that's mediocre to low like B movies that people like just because there's a lot of blood and stupid monsters in them; or metal music which at first seems really heavy for its sound and look but its themes and lyrics really are just clichees(the black sheep as I like to call'em);or even people of the kind that really are losers(dead bulls) but apply force to get their way through life(this relates a lot to the title).
    I dont' know what the space flunky... line means. Any ideas?
    BTW, Cubensis is an idiot and so are all the assholes that think it's only about rage and shit. It has that effect on you, of course but that doesn't mean it's meaningless.

    General CommentThis song is just making fun of the radio, how it only plays crappy hit singles on loops and completely ignores other great songs, sometimes even better than the actual hits. Meanwhile its obvious theyre making fun of metal with the way Josh is playing his guitar. He really over exaggerates the metal aspect of this song in only a way of a guitar player that is trying to make fun of it would.

    As far as the title goes, that seems like its pretty much for Itunes and other online music retailers. Its obvious that song wont get played on the radio and the majority of people will only buy their hit online and overlook this song...except for metal heads who will probably love it regardless. Its just making fun of the whole music scene of that time because metal was what everyone seemed to be playing.

    Gimme toro means Gimme Bullshit basically because thats what the music industry and the radio has been giving us and people buy it. The song is set in satire right from the beginning.

    General Comment"Queens aren't much for lyrics", What are you on about? That's why they are a great band they spend time on lyrics rather than the loads of crappy songs godsmack and disturbed crank out. Wait sorry, my bad i mentioned queens in the same paragraph as disturbed. sorry. Anyways, this song is pure balls to the wall, great for getting amped up.

    General Commentyeah...oxymorone has the best opinion so far...it's about the shallowness of everything today. and I also think that the reason for the whole "rage and shit" feel is to show the fuel that drives people today...going up from down low and doing everything you want on the way...reckless and "macho" (I'll be a massive conquistador). the songs featured at the beginning while switching from station to station are references to commercialism. the you you it's all about you song reflects the constant relationship and "courting" theme that persists in all musical material launched these days...always referring to a "you" figure and using it as the main rhyme in their lyrics as well as making fun of commercials who are always showing products made "all for you"
