Lyrics

Never Trust a Hippie

Written By: Leah Stone

The hippies run amuck, they cause a scuttlebutt
They wreak a most unbearable smell, contaminate the well
They’re pissed off you can tell, they’ll be sodomized in hell
From rottenous bowels of brine, oozed the noxious swine

Convert someone else, dumbstruck
Stick their head in a tub, don’t be an idiot
Never trust a hippie

Get a load of this, get to it right quick
The suffering, o suffer no more, cast the shit offshore
How did hippies gain such power or how did others get so weak
Hippies thrive as parasites, arm yourself to the teeth

Clean it up, stinktown
Why do they stick around
Wish they were dead, go die inbred
Never trust a hippie

Let me tell you a little story, man
They burned my place down in Memphis
That was a long time ago

The hippies infested the first floor
And god, that whole entire summer
The stench rising from below
It was like nothing I’d ever known
No! I’d rather be alone.

Good times I have in my memory
Relieving most my agony
Hurling Dead Heads off the second story balcony

Be Ill

Written By: Leah Stone

I don’t wanna be ill
And I can’t go on
But I guess you will

Hey! OhOhOh!
OhOhOhOhOh! Hey! Hey!

Now I’m gonna be ill
And I can’t go on
But I guess you will

Oh, I don’t feel well
I thought you were real
But I guess you’re ill

S.H.I.T.

Written By: Leah Stone

Today's a good day
To blow your face away

We're all gonna go
Explosivo

A ship pulls into port
Ship High In Transport

S.H.I.T.
No smoking
