"My Valuable Hunting Knife" as written by and Robert E. Jr. Pollard....
I want to start a new life
With my valuable hunting knife
She will shine like a new girl
And I want to shout out our love to the world (Hit it!)
Everything I think about I think about
Everything I talk about I talk about
With you
But you don't know what I go through
You don't know

    General CommentI think you're overanalysing. I think there are times in a person's life when they are just sick of everyone around them and just want to get away from it all by living in isolation and surviving with Mother Nature... and for such a person to get their proteins and iron, they are going to need to kill and eat wildlife... and thus they are going to depend on their trusty valuable hunting the knife entirely.

    General CommentI think he's talking about the fact that an object doesn't suffer from the sadness that comes with being a human. It also doesn't have the ability to judge, (i.e. "But you don't know what I go through"). The knife will never be affected by feeling or emotion and won't be mentally battered by the passage of time, even if it obviously will physically ("It will not rust through the tears, And it will not lose its appeal over years").

    General CommentBeen listening to this song for the last couple of weeks... I played it to my friend today who pointed out that Sid Vicious, allegedly stabbed his girlfriend to death with a hunting knife... if you listen to the lyrics it all makes sense. I think this song is about Sid.

    General CommentMaybe this is me just being overanalytical and/or crazy, but I think "my valuable hunting knife" is a sex toy of some sort. Or some non-human thing that gives pleasure to whoever's point-of-view this is from. Between the lines "She will shine like a new girl" and "And it will not lose its appeal over years", It's one of the few things that makes sense off the top of my head.

    General CommentI forgot to mention that when I used the first verse of this song as part of my email signature file, my ex-flatmate totally freaked out and thought I was insane and likely to stab her in the middle of the night.

    She has a lot of issues.

    General CommentFor me, this song makes me think of meeting someone new and being infatuated with them - like a shiny new toy (or in this case, a valuable hunting knife just purchased) - in this case the knife becomes the girl, and the girl is used as a metaphor for a knife. And it's about imagining a long lasting relationship with this person even though you just met them.

    Of course, the knife is eventually going to cut you.

    Or maybe it's a song about how knives are better than women. "They ARE better than women! You don;t know what I've been through!"

    General CommentIt's about falling in love with someone and the feeling that it will last forever. The knife is a metaphor for the girl.

    General CommentI always thought it was a stalker/murder song. Using the knife literally or possibly metaphorically to cut away or kill the old life.
