Bek Lyrics

Satan Gave Me a Taco

(From the Stereopathetic Soulmanure Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

Satan gave me a taco
And it made me really sick
The chicken was all raw
And the grease was mighty thick
The rice was all rancid
And the beans were so hard
I was gettin' kinda dizzy
Eatin' all the lard

There was aphids on the lettuce
And I ate every one
And after I was done
The salsa melted off my tongue

Pieces of tortilla
Got stuck in my throat
And the stains on my clothes
Burned a hole through my coat

My stomach was a-trembling
I broke out in a rash.
I was so dry and thirsty
And I didn't have no cash

So I went and found a hose
Tore off all my clothes
Turned on the water
And it shot right up my nose

Some old lady came along
And she thought I was a freak
So she beat me with a handbag
'til I could hardly speak
I was lying there naked
My body badly bruised
In a pool of my own blood
Unconscious and confused

Well, the cops came and got me
And threw me in their van
I woke up on the ceiling
And I couldn't find my hand
They took me to the judge
His eyes a-glowing red
The courtroom was filled
With witches and the dead

Well, the sheriff was a hellhound
With fangs and claws
The prisoners were tied up
And chained to the walls
The air was gettin' thick
The smoke was gettin' thicker
The judge read the verdict
Said, "Cut off his head!"

Well, they placed me on the altar
And he raised up the axe
My head was about to explode
When I noticed the Marshall stacks
I noticed all the smoke machines
The cameras, and the lights
Some guy with a microphone
Running around, dancing in tights

And I noticed the crew
And the band playing down below
And I realised I was in a rock 'n' roll (video)

So I went and joined the band
And went out on tour
And I smoked a lot of heroin
And I passed out in manure

I made out with the groupies
Started fires backstage
Made a lot of money
And I gave it all away

Well, the band got killed
So I started a solo career
And I won all the awards
And I drank all the beer

I opened up a taco stand
just to smell the smell
Cooking with the devil
Frying down in hell
