Well pay attention
Attention to my words,
I love ya!
I dunno what you heard,
And this fire
Has got to go for sure,

Red bowling ball,
Red bowling ball Ruth
Well thats somethin'
Then I should know the truth
I said it, you roll it
And then it breaks your tooth,

Saint Peter
Are you in the wrong town?
Well I love this girl
So don't you come around
And you leavin',
Will be the only sound

    General Commenti think jack's voice in this song sounds so young. i loved his earlier vocals, higher pitched, and somewhat screechy,

    only way i can put it, i guess hah.

    General CommentYes it is an original song and it was recorded as the B-side for 'The Big 3 Killed My Baby'. I don't have this song does anyone know where I can get my hands on it?

    General CommentI've Always Thought That This Song Was Not The White Stripes, But The Upholsterers, A Band Jack Was In Before The White Stripes.
