A double breasted suit, whoopsie

Cause Butter beans, you better stay sharp
Cause I’m gonna freeze out life blood [from that black heart]

Butter beans, you go and try and hide
In the swamp grass I got swamp eyes
And I’ll track you down like a bloodhound
It’s your time to die

(Butter beans I’m gonna get you, I’m gonna get you,
I’m gonna get you)

Butter beans, you’ve gotten so fat
I can bet [a kill you wait across my time
And bad
top and singing and aim and I’ll sin you say]

(Butter beans, I’m gonna get you, I’m gonna get you,
I’m gonna get you)

Real thick black magic and stop the tragedy
From happening
Pig’s feet and snake piss
Crow tongue and cat face
Horse tail and bone bits
Bird’s nest and gray [goose]

All of it won’t keep the tragedy from happening
So [run]

(Ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba boom)

(Ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba boom)

(Ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba boom)

(Ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba boom)

(Ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba boom)

(Ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba bum)

(Ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba boom)

(Ba ba ba ba

    General Commenti'm pretty sure it's "you're riding shot gun"
    and "double-breasted suit of skin"
    "i can barely carry your weight across my tiny back

    General Commentthere's a lot of onomatopoeia in this song .

    what i get from it is that, possibly, butter beans sold his soul to satan (who is speaking), and satan has come to collect his due. butter beans tries to run, and doesn't want to leave his life ("...butter beans, i know she wants you..."), but satan reminds him that what he has isn't real, because satan got it for him, in exchange for his soul ("...you’ll make a lovely headdress or
    a double breasted suit...").

    then, butter beans attempts to hide out, and to counter satan's dark magic with some sort of spell.

    i've been reading a lot of harry potter lately, though, so, i guess bear that in mind.

    General CommentI think these lyrics, this transcript is a little iffy, but it's a tough song. Before I criticise, I'm making a mental note to try to make my own. I love this song, and I love it.

    General Comment"[till you romp down I'm goin to hell you ride as shine
    ride you gone]"
    should be (i think)
    [till you romp down I'm goin to hell you're ridin' shotgun]

    Also,
    "Cause I'm gonna freeze out life blood [from that black heart]"
    should definitely be
    "Cause I'm gonna free that black blood from that black heart"

    General Commentafter listening to this on full blast a few times, i think i got the lyrics down pat without all the weird unicode bs. he says his stuff pretty clear in this, except the background singers make it kinda hard to hear the last line of every verse. here:


    Butter beans, I'm gonna get you
    I'm gonna stick you, I'm gonna take you down
    And then romp, I'm goin' to hell,
    You're riding shotgun.

    Butter beans, I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you

    Butter beans, I know she wants you
    Bet you'll make a lovely headdress
    Or a double breasted suit of skin

    Butter beans, I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you

    Butter beans, you best stay sharp
    'Cause I'm gonna free that black blood from that black heart
    I'm gonna fry I'm gonna fry with a smile on my face

    Butter beans, I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you

    You think you're so slick
    I've seen her lipstick 'cross your dillsnick
    You think you're so slick
    I've seen her lipstick 'cross your dillsnick

    Butter beans, you go and try and hide
    In the swamp grass I got swamp eyes
    And I'll track you down like a bloodhound
    It's your time to die

    Butter beans I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you

    Butter beans, you've gotten so fat
    I can barely carry your weight across my tiny back
    Taught me singing, in the end when I see you, say Amen

    Butter beans, I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you, I'm gonna get you

    Real thick black magic
    can't stop the tragedy from happening
    Pigs feet and snake piss,
    crow tongue and cat face
    Horse tail and bone bits
    Bird's nest and graveyards
    All of it won't keep the tragedy from happening
    So run!

    General Commentsorry about that posting twice. but i think it has a lot of similarities to "The tragedy of Faust" by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. in lamen's terms, guy makes a pact with the devil, he gets faust everything he wants in exchange for his soul, faust wants to back out because he meets a girl whom he falls in love with but she hates that he's followed by mephistopheles (satan). he wants no more of the pact. but he's taken down to hell anyway after things with the girl goes wrong. go read it for yourself, because i'm sure i left some stuff out.

    General CommentI def agree with the Faust angle. Interestingly, on the album cover there is a fat boxer staring in the mirror in one of the rooms. This guy looks just like Butterbean, a popular if gimmicky boxer from the 90s.
