Spider got eight legs and
I got two
This guitar got six strings
What about you, well, what do you got?
What did you get for free?

You gotta get all your things together, girl
And make sure to give'em all to me

Stone or rock ain't movin'
Neither is a tree
And that may be good for you girl
But it ain't good for me, I'm rolling
Yeah I'm takin' what I need for free


You still got to get it all together
Put it in the trunk of my car
And I'm 'onna take it all with me

What do you got that I ain't got?
What I wanna know
Can I get a piece of it?
A piece before you go?
Yeah, give it all, girl

Yeah shove it right down my throat
Oh, yes, I got one last thing to say to you
Have you seen my coat?

    General CommentWhat, no comments? I know we see Jack actually write this in It Might Get Loud but that doesn't mean there's nothing to interpret, it's a good song :)

    I think it's about being with somebody to get something out of it- but you get a whole bunch of stuff you don't want from that somebody, too. And he tells her if she doesn't stop he'll leave, but only after he's taken everything he wants/needs. And she doesn't believe him. But at the end, he does leave, true to his word, with everything she ever had.

    Jack's just too awesome for words.
