"Itchyhead" as written by and Cat Power Chan Marshall....
There's a baby
With an itchy head
Pour water on it
I'll take a knife so I can
Take a weight off
Umm
I'm sixty five
Nobody in my family knows I'm alive
Hey little girl
I would've cut your hair off
Hey little girl
So I can
Pour water on it
So I can take knife
And I will
I'm ninety nine
And I'm in jail
I wish I could have a million kids
A million girls
I would cut their hair off
And I would
Pour water on them
So I can take knife
With that knife
I could pour
Water on them
One, two, three, four

    Lyric CorrectionI always thought it was some weird cannibalistic musings, because I thought the lyrics were as follows;

    There's a baby
    With an itchy head
    Pour butter on it
    I'll take a knife so I can
    Take a bite
    pour
    butter on
    I'm 65
    Nobody in my family knows I'm alive
    Hey little girl
    I would've(wanna?) cut your hair off
    Hey little girl
    So I can
    Pour butter on it
    So I can take bite
    And I will(would?)
    I'm 99
    And I'm in jail
    I wish I could have a million kids
    A million girls
    I would cut their hair off
    And I would
    Pour butter on them
    So I can take bite
    With that(my?) knife
    I could pour
    Butter on them
    One, two, three, four

    General CommentI don't think it means anything but just generic craziness. Just her pretending to live through the eyes of a lunatic. It is a great song nonetheless, and one of the great examples of how amazing her music USED to be. She has really gone downhill since the release of her latest stuff, particularly Jukebox and the Greatest. It just isn't the same feel :(
