And a time for truth 
I say, eye for an eye 
Eye for a tooth

Mom and Pop they raised her 
On huge slabs of meat 
 
She's fine 
A man of nine 
Water derby day 
Twenty six pumps 
on a Crossman 
And it's time to play 
 
It's nice, so nice, to be 
 
Pull out the cannon boys 
Steal us some wine 
Puff Tijuana Smalls 
Shake hands with beef
