If you say you'll burn your car
If you'll burn that motor car
And I know it is faux pas
And I know it is faux pas
If she means that much to you
If there's nothing you won't do
Yeah, you'll burn it through and through
Yeah, you'll burn it through and through

Bring her head back to me
Bring her head back to me

She's not all she's meant to be
She's not all she's meant to be
If you cut her, she will bleed
If you cut her, she will bleed
If she means that much to you
If there's nothing you won't do
Yeah, you'll burn it through and through
Yeah, you'll burn it through and through

Bring her head back to me
Bring her head back to me

Take out the carving knife, yeah pull her to bed
Pull out the carving knife and take off her head
Take out the carving knife, yeah pull her to bed
Pull out the carving knife and
Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut off her head

Bring her head back to me
Brign her head back to me

The butcher, the baker
The candle-stick maker
If you drive a car then I know you're a faker

    Song MeaningMy friend and I have discussed the meaning of this song on a couple different occasions. Let me break it down for you:

    "If you say you'll burn your car
    If you'll burn that motor car
    And I know it is faux pas"
    --Basically, this guy claims that he loves a girl so much that he'd actually burn his car for her. This is probably a big deal for him, otherwise he wouldn't have said it and she wouldn't say he couldn't do it ("and I know it is faux pas", meaning, "and I know it isn't true)

    "If she means that much to you
    If there's nothing you won't do
    Yeah, you'll burn it through and through"
    --The singer is skeptical of the man's claim to prove his love for some girl, so she tells him that if he truly loves this girl, he'll burn the car like he says he will.

    "Bring her head back to me"
    -- This doesn't make a whole lot of sense until you listen to the next verse

    "She's not all she's meant to be
    If you cut her, she will bleed"
    --This could go two ways.
    1)This girl isn't as strong as she seems, so if he hurts her, she will run away from the relationship.
    2)This girl isn't as perfectionate/godly as he views her, and will still bleed if cut

    "Take out the carving knife, yeah pull her to bed
    Pull out the carving knife and take off her head...
    Pull out the carving knife and
    Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut off her head"
    --Finally the "bring her head back to me" makes sense! The singer wants him to prove that his love is as strong/perfect as he makes her out to be. Therefore, the singer challenges him to hurt his love emotionally to prove that she won't run from him. If he can "bring her head" back to the singer, then he has proven that the love can withstand anything.


    "The butcher, the baker
    The candle-stick maker
    If you drive a car then I know you're a faker "
    --The rhyme above it is kind of eerie, but fits the mood. "Of you drive a car than I know you're a faker" is referring to his earlier claim to burn his car. If the singer witnesses him driving his supposed burned down car, then she knows he was full of it.
