there is woman-pie in here
mr. evangalist says she's hit
the best cook you ever had
ya can't blame the good-woman now, dad
and ya looked him up for 20 years
now there's action on the basement stairs
a monster half man half beast climbs
hear the hatchet (grind, grind)
pilgrim gets 1 hacked daughter
and all we guys get are 40 hack reporters
uptown 100 skirts are bleeding
mr. evangilist says
she's hit ev'ry little bit
she's hit ev'ry little bit
now if only we could all grow wings and fly
sweet hatchet swing low son
I'm feeling pretty lonesome
christen the bastard jack dad
the head-shrinker is a quack
"anyone who'd wear their hair like that"
the vinyl is so cool/the conversation's cruel
hold my heart romeo its in a rodeo
hold my head daddy-o it just won't go-o-o-o
and all the girls across the world
are hit ev'ry little bit

    General Comment"I'm feeling pretty lonesome" - The way in which Cave delivers the line makes it so believeable - I always liked this song.

    General Commenter - she's changed, she might have become pregnant or "now one of us" , the people have explanations for her mood-shift, but they are all wrong , he and she know

    it's almost like she was someone living in a sexually repressed household and now she has lost her innocence, you can't blame her for exploring what for (the first) 20 years of her life has been kept from her...
