Lyrics
Slug bait
Can't wait
Slug slug bait
Can't can't wait

I crawl up the grass to your window
And then open up your room very slow.

Slug bait
Can't wait

I walk into your bedroom
Then I look at you with your seven months pregnant womb

Slug bait
Can't can't wait

I get your husband to your front bedroom
I cut his b____ of with my knife KNIFE
I make him eat them right there
In front of his pregnant wife WIFE
He's into his b____ off
I look at him very slow

Slug slug bait
Can't can't wait

As he bleeds to death on the floor
I want you to say don't do any more

Slug slug bait
Can't cannot cannot wait

I look at your big heavy stomach
It's already moving a little bit with your baby
I use the carving knife from your kitchen
I start to perform the operation
You say "No, no don't do that!"
I say, "I don't give a ... cat's whiskers."

Slug bait
Can't wiat [Note: yes this is actually what he says!]

I pull out your baby
I chew his hand off with my teeth
I lick him clean
It's obscene
As you bleed to death I kill it
I'm just a wicked boy

Slug slug bait bait
Can't can't wait wait
Slug slug bait
Can't Can't wait
Slug bait
