Testo della canzone Stagger Lee (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds), tratta dall'album Murder Ballads

Stagger Lee - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

It was back in '32, when times were hard
He had a Colt .45 and a deck of cards
Stagger Lee

He wore rat-drawn shoes and an old Stetson hat
Had a '28 Ford, he had payments on that
Stagger Lee

His woman threw him out in the ice and the snow
And she told him, "Never ever come back no more"
Stagger Lee

So he walked through the rain, and he walked through the mud
Till he came to a place called "The Bucket o' Blood"
Stagger Lee

He said, "Mr. Mother Fucker, you know who I am?"
And the barkeep said, "No, and I don't give a good God-damn!"
To Stagger Lee

He said, "Well bartender, it's a plain to see
I'm the bad motherfucker called Stagger Lee
Mr. Stagger Lee!"

Well, the barkeeper said, "Yeah, I've heard your name down the way
And I kick motherfucking asses like you every day
Mr. Stagger Lee"

Well, those were the last words that the barkeep said
'Cause Stag put four holes in his motherfucking head

Just then in came a broad called Nellie Brown
Known to make more money than any bitch in town, yeah

She struts across the bar, hitching up her skirt
Over to Stagger Lee, she's starting to flirt
Oh, Stagger Lee

She saw the barkeep, said, "Oh God, he can't be dead"
Stag said, "Well, just count the holes in the motherfucker's head"

She said, "You ain't look like you scored in quite a time.
Why not come to my bed? It won't cost you a dime
Mr. Stagger Lee"

"But there's something that I have to say before you begin
You'll have to be gone before my man, Billy Dilly, comes in
Mr. Stagger Lee"

"I'll stay here till Billy Dilly comes in, till time comes to pass
And furthermore I'll fuck Billy Dilly in his motherfucking ass"
Said Stagger Lee

"I'm a bad motherfucker, don't you know
And I'll crawl over fifty good pussies just to get to one fat boy's asshole"
Said Stagger Lee

Just then Billy Dilly rolls in and said, "You must be the mad motherfucker called Stagger Lee"
"I'm Stagger Lee"

"Yeah, I'm Stagger Lee and you better get down on your knees
And suck my dick, because if you don't you're gonna be dead"
Said Stagger Lee

Well, Billy Dilly dropped down and slobbered on his head
And Stag filled him full of lead
Oh, yeah
