Butcher Pete
Roy Brown Lyrics

Hey everybody, did the news get around
About a guy named Butcher Pete
Oh, Pete just flew into this town
And he's choppin' up all the women's meat

He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He just hacks, wacks, choppin' that meat

Butcher Pete's got a long sharp knife
He starts choppin' and don't know when to stop
All you fellows gotta watch your wifes
'Cause Pete don't care who's meat he chops

Ever since Peter flew into town
He's been havin' a ball
Just cuttin' and choppin' for miles around
Single women, married women, old maids and all

Wakes up in the morning, half past five
Chops from sunrise to sunset
I don't see how he stays alive
Meat's gonna be the death of ole Pete, yeah

The police put Pete in jail
Yes, he finally met his faith
But when they came to pay his bail
They found him choppin' up his cell mate

That Butcher Pete is a crazy man
Tries to chop down the wind and the rain
Just hacks on anything he can get
Say, turn this record over, you ain't heard nothing yet

Guys I don’t think this Pete guy is actually a butcher

"Butcher Pete has a long sharp knife" 😉

Dudes n dudettes: it's a classic double (Einsteinian?) entendre r&b about a sex addict and what happens to black men. Pretty straightforward.


He's a butcher, just a different kind of butcher.

Rip Van Winkle

@Adam Leber I didn’t even know he was sick!

@Sizzly Boi its true as most of the vinyls you buy today are remasters from not even the original masters, everytime something is dubbed it looses Audio Quality, Sonic go Boom with a shitty Fart noise.

Not when literally the only other choice you have is the radio lol
