"I'm A Wheel" as written by and Jeff Tweedy....
Oh, hold on
You risk exciting me
Once in Germany someone said nein
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine

Oh, hold back
Oh, don't invite me
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine
Once in Germany someone said nein

I'm a wheel
I will
Turn on you

Oh, I invented a sister
Populated with knives
Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh

I'm a wheel
I will
Turn on you

Um...

I'm a wheel
I will

I'm a wheel
I will

I'm a wheel
I will
Turn on you

I'm gonna turn on you, turn on you
Turn on you, turn on you, turn on you

I'm gonna turn on you, turn on you
Turn on you, turn on you, turn on you

I'm gonna turn on you, turn on you, turn on you

    General Commentjeff tweedy's lyrics are by and large pretty fantastic after being there... i think this song (and album) is a great example of wilco not necessarily playing to their professed strengths like they'd be expected to after an album like yhf. the boys can still rock, it seems.

    General CommentMichaelsee, I'd encourage you to check out Kicking Television (you may have already). This song's not on there, but it shows that A Ghost is Born was really just the groundwork for an amazing live band--the band they have now become.

    General Commenti agree with michaelsee, especially cuz i think jeff singing "i will turn on you" signifies that he's going to do what he wants as opposed to what's expected of him from fans and critics

    General CommentI always thought he was saying "I invented a cistern, I'll populate it with knives" not that that would make much more sense.
