    General CommentThese lyrics are wrong!!!!
    See:
    cl4.org/music/lyrics/…

    It should be:
    Beetles, under my carpet, under my feet.
    They come out in the heat.

    General Commenthow the hell do you go about editing the content on here? because they're really not the real lyrics. anyone who's even remotely british can see that he says "beetles, under my carpet, under my feet. they come out in the heat."
    and it hardly takes a genius to see it. i mean, how can anyone think that the word 'under' sounds like the word 'shit'? "shit my carpet" makes no sense either way.

    General Commentwhen i hear this song i picture it as the theme song of a strange cartoon show featuring a human who interacts with beetles as the characters.

    General CommentI am almost entirely sure the lyrics are:

    Beetles in my carpet.
    at my feet.
    they come when i eat.

    Insects always seem to show up to eat crumbs and such. have you noticed how many ants come out if you leave food out in plain sight?

    of course, i could be wrong. : P

    General CommentI saw somewhere that I remember thinking was pretty reliable read the lyrics as:

    beetles, under my carpet, under my feet,

    they come out in the heat


    I think the misinterpretation's due to his weird accent and the way the synth sort of distorts a few of the harder consonants.

    And I don't think it really means anything. It's more of the image you get than what it's supposed to represent. It's like a little mini-limerick about kids staring at bugs out of boredom and curiosity, except it's done from RDJ's slightly twisted perspective.

    General CommentBEETLES.
    IN MY CARPET.
    AT MY FEET.
    THEY COME OUT AT NIGHT.

    Goodness.

    Well, it's about beetles. In his carpet. At his feet. And they come out at night. Brilliant.

    General CommentRevision:

    Beetles.
    In my carpet.
    UNDER my feet.
    They come out at night?

    That last part is tricky.
