    Hahaha, oh, wow. I know I'm impressed. It's so odd to watch all these 30s movies where the lord's name isn't so much as taken in vain and then you hear this.

    I got nipples on my titties, big as the end of my thumb / I got somethin' between my legs'll make a dead man come / Oh daddy, baby won't you shave 'em dry? (Aside: Now, draw it out!) Want you to grind me baby, grind me until I cry / (Roland: Uh, huh.) / Say I fucked all night, and all the night before baby / And I feel just like I wanna, fuck some more,Oh great God daddy (Roland: Say you gonna get it. You need it.) / Grind me honey and shave me dry / And when you hear me holler baby, want you to shave it dry / I got nipples on my titties, big as the end of my thumb / Daddy you say that's the kind of 'em you want, and you can make 'em come, Oh, daddy shave me dry / (Roland: She ain't gonna work for it.) / And I'll give you somethin' baby, swear it'll make you cry / I'm gon' turn back my mattress, and let you oil my springs, I want you to grind me daddy, 'til the bell do ring /Oh daddy, want you to shave 'em dry

    Oh great God daddy, if you can't shave 'em baby won't you try? / Now if fuckin' was the thing, that would take me to heaven / I'd be fuckin' in the studio, till the clock strike eleven / Oh daddy, daddy shave 'em dry / I would fuck you baby, honey I'd make you cry / Now your nuts hang down like a damn bell sapper / And your dick stands up like a steeple /Your goddam ass-hole stands open like a church door / And the crabs walks in like people / Aside: Ow, shit! / (Roland: Aah, sure enough, shave 'em dry?) / Aside: Ooh! Baby, won't you shave 'em dry / A big sow gets fat from eatin' corn / And a pig gets fat from suckin' / Reason you see this whore, fat like I am, Great God, I got fat from fuckin' / Aside: Eeeeh! Shave 'em dry / (Roland: Aah, shake it, don't break it) / My back is made of whalebone / And my cock is made of brass /And my fuckin' is made for workin' men's two dollars / Great God, round to kiss my ass / Aside: Oh! Whoo, daddy, shave 'em dry
