"Bagman" as written by and Robert Emile Deleo Dean Deleo....
Bagman honey
Bagman sugar
Bagman honey
Bagman sugar

I know it feels good
But be careful with your vices
Falling
Crawling on your knees again
Watch out for the bagman

Bagman honey
It'll drive us insane
Bagman sugar
Oh do what you want
Fat man shouting
You're holding on for nothing baby
Bagman sleazy
Does it hurt?

We almost got it right
Revelation
Conversation made it laden
With the bagman's bag

Bagman honey
It'll drive us insane
Bagman sugar
Oh do what you want
Fat man shouting
You're holding on for nothing baby
Bagman sleazy
Does it hurt?

Then
There was a dream
When you said we would be free
But now is the time
To be real

Bagman honey
Bagman sugar
Fat man shouting
Bagman sleazy

Bagman honey
It'll drive us insane
Bagman sugar
Oh do what you want
Fat man shouting
You're holding on for nothing baby
Bagman sleazy

    My Interpretationaccording to mary weilands book ( weilands ex wife )
    scott weiland had been sober from hard drugs for about maybe a little over a year through the 2006-2007 period .. to her knowledge at least.. anyways in the book says mary was waiting for scott to come home and he came home really late and woke her up to tell her that on his way back home from the studio he had witnessed a cocaine sell and ended up doing himself ... and he confessed it it to her that same night and asked her for help... that and another thing led to them filing for divorce about a month later

    anyways i believe that incident of scott scoring that coke that night had some inspiration for this song... seeing as this album has alot of songs about mary and this incident is one of the straws that broke the camels back

    General Commentwas written by Dean. Similar to several other songs on the album, the song was composed with certain intentions, and Weiland lyrically drove the song into a darker place. Dean explained, "It’s about Scott’s dealings with certain people and, well, it can get pretty dark and bleak out there sometimes." Dean described performing the guitar as "painting with these bright colors," but considered the lyric/music dichotomy to be the "yin-yang thing in the band".

    General Commenti swear the chorus sounds like 2 different thinks

    when he says bagman honey itll drive us insane - it also sounds like he could be saying aint no driver salesman

    and when he says oh do what you want it sounds like hes saying argue what you

    just saying... but the lyrics are right btw
