"Truckdrivin' Neighbors Downstairs (Yellow Sweat)" as written by and Beck Hansen....
Come on, motherfucker.
Put your clothes on, come on
You lousy puke
Fuck you!

Why don't you call your mommy?
You're a fucking drunk!
Yeah, I'm a fucking drunk!
Come on, motherfucker!
But you're a lousy lowlife who can't do nothin' for himself
Acid casualty with a repossessed car
Vietnam vet playin' air guitar
It's just the shit-kickin', speed-takin'
Truck-drivin' neighbors downstairs
Yeah, yeah

Whiskey-stained buck-toothed backwoods creep
Grizzly bear motherfucker never goes to sleep
It's just the shit-kickin', speed-takin'
Truck-drivin' neighbors downstairs
Oh, yeah, yeah

Belly floppin' naked in a pool of yellow sweat
Screamin' jackass with a wet cigarette
It's just the shit-kickin', speed-takin'
Truck-drivin' neighbors downstairs
Oh
Oh, my goodness
Oh
Mm
Psychotic breakdown double-edged axe
Growin' hair like a shag rug on his greasy back
It's just the shit-kickin', speed-takin'
Truck-drivin' neighbors downstairs

Oh my goodness
Oh my goodness
Oh, yeah

Come on, honey, feel the grease
Grease, grease
Come on, honey, feel the grease
Oh, my goodness
Come on, honey, feel the grease
Oh yeah

Come on, lay it on me
Bring it down one more time
Come on, honey

    General Comment"oh my goodness" fits in perfectly, and it's in Beercan also. Mellow Gold is a great album.

    General CommentI agree, Subterranean... this is a wonderful song, and, like much of Beck's writing, based on true life. The bit at the start is an actual recording of the lowlifes next to whom he was living...

    General Commentas good as this song is, it makes me sad. Seeing as how are society places a strong emphasis on possessions and things in general, these are stereotypical of the folk we entrust our stuff with. also, they make highways and interstates REAL fun.

    My InterpretationI would have to guess that he was living in a shitty apartment somewhere. I lived in a similar shitty apartment. We had two shootings, a beating, and an incident with pipebombs, being placed on top of my apartment but some stupid meth-heads.. they remind me of the neighbors that were screaming at each other. As for this song, even after those experiences I still laugh at it..

    I am not quite sure where a couple of you are coming from, with your ideas.. but LMAO.
