Snake’s got a leg
It’s one only she can see
And you can, you can get nobody hurt
But you’ll run away so we’ll never ever see

I got a jacket
A coat full of contraband
And he got, he got so many shoes to sell
And he got, he got so many hands to hand ‘em over with

And we’ll eat like kings, oh

So OH, oh, oh
Got hit with bows and arrows
So OH, oh, oh
Got hit with bows and arrows oh

I don’t wanna go
Into the mountain
Away so I can,
So I can feed the crows up in the hills
Up, up in the hills
It’s cold and brutal out

They’re back at my skin with their beaks on my mound
They’re back at my skin with their beaks on my mound
They’re back at my skin with their penniless god and their god
and they’re caw-caw-cawing out

And we’ll eat like kings, oh

Snake’s in the grass
Throw the snake in the oven and
The rats in your face
“How can you live up so
High in the mountain?”
Snake’s in the grass
Throw the snake in the oven and
The rats in your face
“How can you live up so
High in the mountain?”
Crows in my belly
Throw the crows in the oven and
The crows in your face
“How can you live up so
High in the mountain?”

They’re back at my skin with their beaks on my mound
They’re back all the way, three feet on the ground
And the rat in the oven and
The snake gets out
“How can he live up so
High in the mountains again?”

So they’re back at my skin with their beaks on my mound
They’re back all the way, three feet on the ground
And the rat in the oven and
The snake gets out
“How can he live up so
High in the mountain again?”

He will eat up all the goods
And then he’ll eat up all the grains
He’ll eat up all the good things
They’ll eat up all the good things
He will eat up the goods
And then he’ll eat all the drains
Eat up all the good things, girl

So OH, oh, oh
Got hit with bows and arrows
So OH, oh, oh
Got hit with bows and arrows

    General Commenti wish they'd use this version instead but without the weird guitar and fuzzy singing. they should play it like III in Shut Up while keeping the 'so they're back at my skin...' part because thats the greatest part of any sunset rubdown song!

    General Commenti think the lyrics are
    "they peck at my skin with their beaks on my mouth
    and they peck at my skin with their beaks on my mouth
    and they peck at my skin with their penniless
    caw and they caw and they caw caw caw cawing out."
