"Scum Of The Earth" as written by and Shel Silverstein....
There was a group called called Scum of the Earth
And they say they got their birth
In a basement bar on Greek Street down in Soho.
The bass man he smoked grass,
And the drummer he kicked ass,
And the lead guitar ate speed while everybody boogied.

The drummer's name was Mavis
He was a twice convicted rapist.
Now one night Scum of the Earth
They was playin' for all they was worth.
Guitar screams and wails and cymbal crashes
Louder, faster and higher
'Til their electric cords caught fire,
And the whole damn band was burned to a pile of ashes.

And The Scum of the Earth they just keep boogyin' on.
Higher and higher until the fire
Was burned out and gone
And The Scum of the Earth they just keep boogyin' on.
