A SCRAP OF FLESH
AND A HEAP OF BONES
ONE DEEP SIGH
AND A DESPERATE MOAN

THREE BLACK EYES
AND A BUSTED NOSE
I SAID OH YEAH, OH YEAH

TAKE ME UP
BABY I'M READY TO GO
SHAKE ME UP
BABY I'M READY TO GO, YEAH
TAKE ME UP
BABY I'M READY
BABY, BABY I'M READY TO GO
(CHILL ME, FREEZE ME, IT'S IN MY BLOOD)

I'M NOT GOING TO BURN IN HELL
I CASED THE JOINT
AND I KNOW IT WELL
MAYBE MY CARCASS
WOULD FEED THE WORMS
BUT I'M WORKING
FOR THE OTHER FIRM

TAKE ME UP
BABY I'M READY TO GO
FIX ME UP
BABY I'M READY TO ROLL, YEAH
SET ME UP
BABY, BABY, BABY I'M READY
BABY I'M READY TO GO
(CHILL ME, FREEZE ME, IT'S IN MY BLOOD)
FLIP THE SWITCH

I GOT MY MONEY, MY TICKET
ALL THAT SHIT
I EVEN GOT MYSELF
A LITTLE SHAVING KIT
WHAT WOULD IT TAKE
TO BURN ME
I CAN'T WAIT
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE

I GOT A TOOTHBRUSH, A MOUTHWASH
ALL THAT SHIT
I'M LOOKING DOWN
IN THE FILTHY PIT
I HAD THE TURKEY
AND THE STUFFING TOO
I EVEN SAVED
A LITTLE BIT FOR YOU

LETHAL INJECTION IN A LUXURY
I WANNA GIVE IT
TO THE WHOLE JURY
I'M JUST DYING
FOR ONE MORE SQUEEZE
OH YEAH
OH YEAH

PICK ME UP
BABY I'M READY TO GO
TAKE ME UP
BABY I'M READY TO BLOW, YEAH
TAKE ME UP
BABY IF YOU'RE READY TO GO
BABY I'VE GOT NOWHERE TO GO
BABY I'M READY TO GO
(CHILL ME, FREEZE ME, TO MY BONES)
FLIP THE SWITCH
