"Sting Me" as written by and Rich S./robinson Robinson....
If you feel like a riot, then don't you deny it
Put your good foot forward
No need for heroics I just want you to show it
Now's the time to shine
Your independence is a half ass deliverance
The train left the station
The recognition of the same old condition
Your symptoms showing through

Well regardless of the truth
You still act so aloof
In the face of your judge & jury
You nave the nerve to say not guilty

But can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Well the bells ring out for the crimes of the century
By courtesy of your mother
The signs reads welcome to the valley of discovery
Look at what money can buy
Sons & daughters better open your eyes
Tell me what you're seeing
This submission is a tired tradition
It's everyone's sacrifice

Well believe you me
I've got nothing up my sleeve
Except a heart and a chip on my shoulder
Yes I'm young and don't like getting older

Yeah but can you sting me
Can you sting me
Right to my rotten bones

Come on my sweet little thing
What new things can you show me today
I got one question
I believe it's subjective
What is a wasp without her sting?

I don't want to sound bitter
Yeah you touch me just like murder
Living ain't so easy
When all I want from you is to sting me

Can you sting me

    General CommentThis and "feathers" keep battling in my mind for the title of "Joe's favorite Crowes song"

    To this day, I can't listen to it just once. I can't believe this album was recorded in just about a week!

    General CommentI think it's a drug song.

    I think Chris Robinson--and the rest of the Crowes--were just getting into heroin at the time, and "Sting me" was a cryptic reference to IV drug use...the "sting" of the needle as you penetrate the skin.
