"Over The Shoulder" as written by and Al Jourgensen....
Big size, small size
Any size, round and round
We need, we take
Burn it all to the ground
Started over and learned to walk
We teach you how to talk
Please try and understand
We're helping all mankind
We use them a while then it's over the shoulder
We use them a while then it's over the shoulder

We are serious
O, serious
Dollar here, dollar there
Dollars flying everywhere
We're only here to please
Stop the killing, trust me
We'll only be a while
Big while, big big smile
We use them a while then it's over the shoulder
We use them a while then it's over the shoulder

We have in our hands
Every woman and every man
Things are gonna go far
Down a real big fast car
And what you see is what you get
Keep 'em hungry, you bet
You need security
To keep you from the enemy
We use them a while then it's over the shoulder
We use them a while then it's over the shoulder

    General CommentThis song is about a record company using people to make money and then casting them aside.

    General CommentIf anyone's ever seen the video to this song, it (the song, along with the video) as the 5th. line in the last verse plainly states, means: WYSIWYG. Yep, Al Jourgensen walks through a typical '80s American supermarket throwing this-and-that indiscriminately in his shopping cart--how brillianty simple is that for a video to a song called "Over The Shoulder"?! LOL

    General Comment(from 3rd verse)

    "Things are gonna go far
    Down a real big fast car"

    nonsense is ok, but i thought it sounds
    more like signs of wealth and prosperity:

    o big cigar, go far
    diamond ring, big fast car
