"Stop Breaking Down" as written by and Robert Johnson....
Some pretty mama she starts
Breakin' down
Stop breakin' down
Woo stop breakin' down
The stuff I got is gonna bust your brains out
Well it'll make you lose your mind

You Saturday night women
You love to
Ape and crown
You won't do nothin' but tear good mans
Reputation down
Stop breakin' down
Woo stop breakin' down
The stuff I got is gonna bust your brains out
Well it'll make you lose your mind

I gave my baby
The ninety-ninth degree
Shed just love to throw a pistol
Down on me
Stop breakin' down
Hey stop breakin'down
The stuff I got is gonna bust you brains out
Well it'll make you lose your mind

    General CommentThose aren't quite the correct lyrics. And it's weird, because EVERY lyrics place has these, even the official White Stripes website. The actual lyrics are:

    "I can't walk the streets, now, to consolate my mind
    some pretty mama, she starts breaking down
    stop breaking down!
    a-stop breaking down
    The stuff I got is gonna bust your brains out
    well, it'll make you lose your mind

    You Saturday night women, you love to ape and clown
    You won't do nothing but tear a good man's reputation down
    Stop breaking down!
    Stop breaking down
    The stuff I got is gonna bust your brains out
    Well, it'll make you lose your mind

    I gave my baby the ninety-nine degree
    She jumped up a throwed a pistol down on me
    Stop breaking down
    Stop breaking down
    The stuff I got is gonna bust your brains out
    Yeah, it'll make you lose your mind."

    Maybe if I just get ONE lyrics websites, the rest will realize they're all wrong ....

    General CommentThe main riff has a cool, jerky, halting style to it. Ridiculously cool song.

    General CommentThis song's great. I'd guess it was about drug-dealing.
