You seen nothing You wanna mess with me you'd better think again You'll be messin' with the karate, my friend You seen nothing I'm like a turbojet, you ain't seen nothin' yet I'll smash your kitcheonette with my bayonet I'll win the long bet and leave you in debt I'll hit the reformat on your diskette You'd better realize my Tae Kwon Do is unchecked You'd better recognize my Jujitsu moves are select You think you're clever but you'd better step with care And if you anger me you'd better say a prayer You've seen nothing And should you step to me you'd better step correct Unless you'd like to feel a fist and face connect You've seen nothing I'm like a turbojet, you ain't seen nothin' yet I'll smash your kitcheonette with my bayonet I'll win the long bet and leave you in debt I'll hit the reformat on your diskette You'd better realize my Tae Kwon Do is unchecked You'd better recognize my Jujitsu moves are select I've got the moves... I've got the moves... I've got the power! (solo) My kicks are deadly and they doth connect With the fools that withhold their full respect A heathy dose of fear is what I will inject And if it's sarcasm that I do detect You'd better recognize my power's full effect And should you move to strike you know I'll redirect (solo) You know I'm dead set, you ain't seen nothin' yet I cook with vinagrette and play the claironet I'll snatch your assets up in my fishing net You gonna regret, wake up in a cold sweat You'd better realize my Tae Kwon Do is unchecked You'd better recognize my Jujitsu moves are quite select

Silence! Your tongue hath offended In a manner most unsplendid A cacophonous stew of malfeasance brews Behind your lips And after this, I must insist that we cease To reminisce You shall not see the face today Communication shall be one way Sure as the Dark One rules this land You shall be speaking to the hand Talk to the hand 'cause the wrist is pissed This day you shall be dissed Silence! Please do bestow And may your words abide in escrow With that sweet part of man we call the hand I'll take my stand Come now let's rediscover What is known best to the glover You shall not see the face today Communication shall be one way Sure as the Dark One rules this land You shall be speaking with the hand Talk to the hand 'cause the wrist is pissed This day you shall be dissed... Dissed Down, down below the wrist There's something that you might've missed And so it's here that I insist You turn your attention now to this... No appointment with the face today Communication shall be one way Sure as the Dark One rules this land You shall speak to the friggin' hand Talk to the hand 'cause the wrist is pissed This day you shall be dissed... Dissed... Dissed... Dissed

From the swamps, from the swamps you arise You have come here to criticize All of us, while you glamorize How you been, how you be livin' that sweet life … and renting cars from Enterprise Now I see what you be According to me, well... You're a butthead maven Just a butthead maven You think that you're great, but I don't think your first rate And I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your butt! I don't mean to dramaticize But I need you to realize How you're always sayin' bs and lies Hangin' out with some stupid guys … eatin' fries at a franchise Now I see what you be According to me, well, it seems... You're a butthead maven Just a butthead maven You think that you're cool, but I know you're a fool And I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your butt! You're a butthead maven Just a butthead maven You think that you're great, ah but I do not think you're first rate And I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your butt!

take the sword out of the stone (right now) eat the meat right off the bone enjoy the meat and if you've found a piece of gristle spit it out actually, I'm not really sure what that last part was all about maybe, maybe someday, togther we can figure it out right about now i'd like to say the middle of the tune 'bout to get heavy just in case you don't want to wait i'll come correct with a melody... and it go... la la la la.... LA.... when henry metal's here there is no need to fear guitars are crystal clear and drums are in your ear when bass is rumblin' 'neath, it may tighten you sheath and make you scream and shout and prance a bit about and there may come a day when you cannot convey how good it truly feels to rock so steadily and riff so heavily with style and brevity making no frenemies but only melodies henry metal... henry metal... henry metal... henry so now with earth, water, fire and air and blessings from below and above shall I now retire to my lair to create the tunes that you love

Workin' for the man... Workin' for the man Workin' for the man but I get little pay I think they like it that way That way they keep all the dough And vacation in Ol' Mexico Workin' for the man... Talkin' bout workin' for the man Workin' for the man but I get few ducats And I'm about to say fuck it Who is this system for? They stealin' money out the back door Workin for the man... Workin' for the man Workin' for the man but I get little pay Not even on my birthday It's barely enough to purchase quality hairspray Workin' for the man... It's no good to be Workin' for the man You shall be reborn into the pit In an ugly sweater that you hath knit and it doesn't fit You shall be reborn into the pit With an ugly haircut you hypocrite Workin' for the man every night and day So that some stupid crap I can pay Workin' for the man in every single way So that some stupid tax I can pay Workin' for the man... Workin' for the man And the man has convinced us that he doesn't exist But the man is within us And he makes me pissed Workin' for the man It is a very bad plan When you're workin' for the man Rest assured you've got a very bad plan (Solo) Go... Continue Boys and girls from around the world Whether you're Jamaican or Irish, Mon, it makes no difference The important thing is that you stand with me and say “F*ck the man!” “F*ck the man!” You shall be reborn into the pit In a tight pair of pants that doesn't fit And looks like sh*t You shall be reborn into the pit With an expired permit you hypocrit

Driving in your car, moving in my lane Failing to signal yeah you're causing me pain Speeding up now just to block me So's that I cannot get off at my exit Terrible driver, terrible man Inconsiderate human... You say you got somewhere that you gotta be Well guess what my brother you know so do we You're doing something stupid with a poker face You have no respect for rules that are in place I know you think that you're more important than us other folks We'd be better off if privileges were revoked Flooring it in your Toyota Camry It is something that I think we can agree is a very much annoying thing to see Cause this is not the Grand Prix Terrible driver, terrible man It's as if you simply cannot understand How to deal with humans on the road or in life Causing Consternation, Causing me strife There's room behind but you cut in front of me You are a jackman of the very first degree No Ipass for the tollway So I sit behind you while you pull coins from the ashtray And you think it's ok because you don't drive that much But allow me to assure you your driving's out of touch You're in the left lane and you're going slow as heck And when I pass you I just have to turn my neck To see the creature that sits behind the wheel Callous to the fact you've caused me an ordeal Terrible driver, terrible man It's as if you simply cannot understand How to deal with humans on the road or in life Causing Consternation, Causing me strife 10 car lengths ahead of you in the left lane Impatient turning at the four way... Solo So take out the pamphlet from the DMV Re-read that sucker baby a couple one, two, three Get your spiral notebook and scribble down with me Some helpful reminders so that you'll no longer be Terrible driver, terrible man It's as if you simply cannot understand How to deal with humans on the road or in life Causing Consternation, Causing me strife

Squeeze You 04:25
In times of untold treachery You are a constant reverie We had a romance plenary A bittersweet memory But now it seems our love hath waned You are no longer entertained But I gotta gotta... Squeeze you, please you Wine you, goat cheese you and I gotta gotta... Tease you, appease you Seize you, grease you In days of old we lit the flame I couldn't even remember your name Only that you were quite a dame And we did play our sexy games But now it seems our love hath waned You are no longer entertained But I gotta gotta... Squeeze you, please you Wine you, goat cheese you and I gotta gotta... Tease you, appease you Seize you, grease you Under a moonlit sky we kissed And put an ad up on Craigslist In an effort to enlist Someone to roleplay proctologist (Solo) It seems your feminine wiles are restrained But my erection is maintained And I gotta gotta... Squeeze you, please you Wine you, goat cheese you and I gotta gotta... Tease you, appease you Seize you, grease you
