Stagger Lee

Nick Cave

It was back in '32 when times were hard
He had a Colt .45 and a deck of cards
Stagger Lee

He wore rat-drawn shoes and an old stetson hat
Had a '28 Ford, had payments on that
Stagger Lee

His woman threw him out in the ice and snow
And told him: Never ever come back no more
Stagger Lee

So he walked through the rain and he walked through the mud
Till he came to a place called The Bucket Of Blood
Stagger Lee

He said: Mr Motherfucker, you know who I am
The barkeeper said: No, and I don't give a good goddamn
To Stagger Lee

He said: Well bartender, it's plain to see
I'm that bad motherfucker called Stagger Lee
Mr. Stagger Lee

Barkeep said: Yeah, I've heard your name down the way
And I kick motherfucking asses like you every day
Mr Stagger Lee

Well those were the last words that the barkeep said
'Cause Stag put four holes in his motherfucking head

Just then in came a broad called Nellie Brown
Was known to make more money than any bitch in town

She struts across the bar, hitching up her skirt
Over to Stagger Lee, she starts to flirt
With Stagger Lee

She saw the barkeep, said: O God, he can't be dead!
Stag said: Well, just count the holes in the motherfucker's head

She said: You ain't look like you scored in quite a time
Why not come to my pad? It won't cost you a dime
Mr. Stagger Lee

But there's something I have to say before you begin
You'll have to be gone before my man Billy Dilly comes in
Mr. Stagger Lee

I'll stay here till Billy comes in, till time comes to pass
And furthermore I'll fuck Billy in his motherfucking ass
Said Stagger Lee

I'm a bad motherfucker, don't you know
And I'll crawl over fifty good pussies just to get one fat boy's asshole
Said Stagger Lee

Just then Billy Dilly rolls in and he says: You must be
That bad motherfucker called Stagger Lee
Stagger Lee

Yeah, I'm Stagger Lee and you better get down on your knees
And suck my dick, because If you don't you're gonna be dead
Said Stagger Lee

Billy dropped down and slobbered on his head
And Stag filled him full of lead
