Pitbull Terrier
Die Antwoord Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Black Cats, White Cats
All my Zef Cats, look out
Big dog in the place to be!

Pitbull terrier, I am a pitbull terrier

Pussy, for bad boy
No pussy, sad boy
You're making me crazy
Mal in the skull boy
All work and no play
Make Ninja a dull boy
I'm a animal, love me
I kill you, don't fuck me
Your pitbull, he's crazy
Baby don't hate me
I'd never leave your side, fuck that
I need to freak cause I love that
Berzerk shit and I worship
You

Yeah
Black Cats, White Cats
All my Zef Cats, look out
Big dog in the place to be! (Oh)
Big dog in the place to be! (Yo)
Big dog in the place to be!
Big dog make you scream!

Pitbull terrier, I am a pitbull terrier

B-b-baby
Here, boy
Are you crazy?
Down boy
Look at your cross face
Why you so serious?
You're so intense
Maybe why I'm so curious
I'm a lost soul, save me
Emotional, sway me
Touch me, shake me
I'm game, play me
Love me, hate me
Kiss me, take me
Break me, make me
Yours

Fuckin with the ultimate





Pitbull Terrier, I am a Pitbull Terrier, fuckin with the ultimate

I hope people come back 9 years later and realize how ahead of its time this beat was.

Rolling dark synths are hot now and they did them well almost a decade ago. Fire.

@sairassiili

Prodigy's heavier stuff has bit of a similar style, like their The Day Is My Enemy album.

@Eva_oficial_ytb

Hi?

@SkullPunisher446

I hope people like you come back 9 years later and realise... That they stole the song from a random Romanian metal band that released it 13 years ago lmao: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hU3h4p-gdg&ab_channel=DirtyShirt

@sairassiili

@@SkullPunisher446
I dont think you are correct. You could have read the description of video. Down there, you can find an attribution to a song "Pit Bull" from a Serbian movie "Black cat white cat". My guess would be that the Romanian metal band has also drawn inspiration from that source for their version.

@SkullPunisher446

Oh shit. I stand corrected lmao@@sairassiili
