Icky Thump
The White Stripes Lyrics


Ah, icky thump
Who'd a thunk?
Sittin' drunk on a wagon to Mexico

Ah, well
What a chump
Man my head got a bump
When I hit it on the radio

Redhead señorita
Lookin' dead
Came and said
Need a bed in Español

Said, gimme a drink of water
I'm gonna sing around the collar
And I don't need a microphone

Icky thump
With the lump in my throat
Grab my coat
And I was freaking
I was ready to go

Yeah, I swear besides the hair
She had one white eye
One blank stare
Lookin' up, lyin' there

On the stand near her hand
Was a candy cane
Black rum, sugar cane
Dry ice, something strange

La la la la la la la la la la

White Americans
What, nothing better to do?
Why don't you kick yourself out?
You're an immigrant too

Who's usin' who?
What should we do?
Well, you can't be a pimp
And a prostitute too

Icky thump
Handcuffed to a bunk
Robbed blind
Looked around
There was nobody else

Left alone
I hit myself with a stone
Went home
And learned how to clean up after myself

Lyrics
Yah-hee, icky thump
Who'd-a thunk?
Sittin' drunk
On a wagon to Mexico
Her hair, what a chump
And my head
Got a bump
When I hit it on the radio
Red-head señorita
Lookin' dead
Came to said,
"I need a bed" en español
So I gave a drink of water
I'm gonna sing around the collar
Well, I don't need a microphone
Icky thump, with the lump
In my throat
Grab my coat
And now it's reckon
I was ready to go
Yeah, I swam beside the hair
She had one white eye
One blank stare
Lookin' up, lyin' there
On a stand in her hair
Was a candy cane
Black rum, sugar cane
Dry eye, somethin' strange!
La la, la la la la la la la la
Well, Americans:
What, nothin' better to do?
Why don't you kick yourself out?
You're an immigrant too.
Who's usin' who?
What should we do?
Well you can't be a pimp
And a prostitute too
Icky thump, handcuffed to a bunk
Robbed blind
Looked around
And there was nobody else
Left alone
I hit myself with a stone
Went home
And learned how to clean up after myself

She's a really good drummer ... because she's both minimalistic and effective. She has broken the code.

Dementional

Whoever brought Neal Peart into the conversation is ridiculous. Beyond unrelated..

Us and Them

Jack broke the code as well...
