I was born in a landslide
In the jungle land
I can play a piano
With a funeral hand

Ooh salt in the wound, making me blue
Ooh salt in the wound, play me a tune

Worked on a railroad
Slept on a cot
If you got what it takes
They'll take what you got

Ooh salt in the wound, making me blue
Ooh salt in the wound, play me a tune

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la-la...
{etc.}

Out on the North Sea
Where the waters are wild
You wept like a mad dog
Like a Ozone child

Ooh salt in the wound, making me blue
Ooh salt in the wound, play me a tune
Play me a tune (x4)

Sha-la-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la-la-la...
{Until it fades.}

    General Commenthow has no one commented on this wacky song yet?
    Not Beck's best but sure is a great Midnite Vultures b-side with a funkified groove to it.
