About Stretcher Case Baby

"Stretcher Case Baby" is a limited edition single by the Damned, released 3 July 1977 on Stiff Records. Only 5,000 copies were distributed, none via record shops. Copies were initially given away at the band's London Marquee Club first anniversary concerts, but when these were cut short, further copies were given to fan club members, and 250 were given as crossword prizes via New Musical Express. The new tracks were cut with American record producer Shel Talmy, marking the band's first real steps away from the traditional punk ethos. "Stretcher Case Baby" was re-recorded for the band's second album, Music for Pleasure, under the shortened title "Stretcher Case". A CD version was issued in the Stiff Singles 1976-1977 box set by Castle Music in 2003.

Thought you were a problem
Thought you were a problem
Thought you were a problem
And you're a stretcher case baby

Say you could kiss like a dream
Say your kisses like peaches and cream
But while you're here
That don't mean a thing
'Cause you're a stretcher case baby

Thought you were a problem (problem)
Thought you were a problem (problem)
Thought you were a problem (problem)
You're a stretcher case baby

Make a little floor for the 30 year old whore
Soon you'll be let out
Not for your ecstasy but
It's your autopsy

Thought you were a problem (problem)
Thought you were a problem (problem)
Thought you were a problem (problem)
And you're a stretcher case baby

Sucker want to pay so what do you say?
I'm gonna scream
You caught a brick in your face
That's why
You're a stretcher case baby

Thought you were a problem (problem)
Thought you were a problem (problem)
Thought you were a problem (problem)
And you're a stretcher case baby
Thought you were a problem (problem)
Thought you were a problem (problem)
Thought you were a problem (problem)
And you're a stretcher case baby
You
