"Butcher Pete (Part 1)" as written by and Henry Glover Roy Brown....
Hey everybody, did the news get around
About a guy named Butcher Pete
Oh, Pete just flew into this town
And he's choppin' up all the women's meat

He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He just hacks, wacks, choppin' that meat

Butcher Pete's got a long sharp knife
He starts choppin' and don't know when to stop
All you fellows gotta watch your wifes
'Cause Pete don't care who's meat he chops

Ever since Peter flew into town
He's been havin' a ball
Just cuttin' and choppin' for miles around
Single women, married women, old maids and all

Wakes up in the morning, half past five
Chops from sunrise to sunset
I don't see how he stays alive
Meat's gonna be the death of ole Pete, yeah

The police put Pete in jail
Yes, he finally met his faith
But when they came to pay his bail
They found him choppin' up his cell mate

That Butcher Pete is a crazy man
Tries to chop down the wind and the rain
Just hacks on anything he can get
Say, turn this record over, you ain't heard nothing yet

    General CommentOkay at first I thought it was about sex, but then he got the electrical chair and so I knew something was up, but I figured he wasn't killing the women since they bailed him out of jail,
    So... My theory is the women loved him because he was chopin' up their husbands and then possibly having funtimes with the wives.

    Memorylol I first heard this song on the radio in the game Fallout 3...
    anyway, its apparently about a serial killer going after women in particular, and when his cellmate is the only available option, he goes after him. Could be an allusion to sexual advances o.O or maybe I'm wrong...
