Icky Thump

Icky Thump

Icky thump
Who’da thunk?
Sittin drunk on a wagon to Mexico?Ahh well
What a chump
Well my head got a bump
When I hit it on the radio

Redhead senorita
Looking dead
Came and said
“Need a bed?”
En Espanol

I said
“Gimme a drink a water,
I’m gonna ’sing around the collar’
And I don’t need a microphone.”

Icky Thump
With a lump in my throat
Grabbed my coat
And I was freaking
I was ready to go!

And I swear
Besides the hair
She had: one white eye,
One black (nk) stare
Lookin’ up
Lyin’ there.

On the stand
Near her hand
Was a candy cane
Black rum, sugar cane
Dry ice (and) something strange

La la la la 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 using who?
What should we do?
Well, you can’t be a pimp
And a prostitue 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.

    I love this song – I keep getting the feeling I’ve heard it before. Like maybe it’s a re-make of an old Led Zepplein song or something? Any tips/hints as to why it’s so familuar? Or I’m I just smoke’n too much?
