Bek Lyrics

Loser

(From the Mellow Gold Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen, Karl Stephenson]

In the time of chimpanzees, I was a monkey
Butane in my veins and I'm out to cut the junkie
With the plastic eyeballs, spray-paint the vegetables
Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
Kill the headlights and put it in neutral
Stock car flaming with a loser in the cruise control
Baby's in Reno with the vitamin-D
Got a couple of couches, sleep on the loveseat
Someone keeps sayin' I'm insane to complain about
A shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
Don't believe everything that you breathe
You get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
So shave your face with some mace in the dark
Saving all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park
Yo cut it!

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby
So why don't you kill me?
(double-barrel buckshot)
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby
So why don't you kill me?

The forces of evil on a bozo nightmare
Ban all the music with a phoney gas chamber
'Cause one's got a weasel and other's got a flag
One's on the pole, shove the other in a bag
With the re-run shows and the cocaine nosejob
The daytime crap of a folksinger slob
He hung himself with a guitar string
A slab of turkey neck and it's hanging from a pigeon wing
And you can't write if you can't relate
Trade the cash for the beat and body for the hate
And my time is a piece of wax falling on a termite
And it's choking on the splinters

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby
So why don't you kill me?
(Get crazy with the Cheez-Whiz)
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby
So why don't you kill me?

(Drive-by body pierce…)

Yo bring on down
(I'm a driver, I'm a winner… things are gonna change, I can feel it)

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby
So why don't you kill me?
(I can't believe you!)
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby
So why don't you kill me?
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby
So why don't you kill me?
(Sprechen Sie Deutsch, baby)

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby
So why don't you kill me?
(Know what I'm saying?)
