Bek Lyrics

Tasergun

(From the Stereopathetic Soulmanure Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

I got a room down in Hollywood
The rent was cheap
It was this rooming house
There was an old man who lived in the room next to me
We shared a bathroom in the hall
He'd stare at me through a crack in his door
The day I moved in, I was playing my guitar
He started banging on the wall with a boot
Then he came out
Started banging on my door, kicked it open

"Watch out, son! I got a tasergun
Watch out, son! I got a tasergun"
He's on the loose
He's got the juice
Like a mad dog with no teeth

He spent his pension in adult bookstores
Bringing strange young men home
He'd leave me notes in the bathroom
Accusing me of stealing his toilet paper
Come out into the hallway
Dressed up in a greasy bathrobe
Trying to start a fight
He became known as The Electric Old Man
And I still, see him with his taser
Coming at me

"Watch out, son! I got a tasergun
Watch out, son! I got a tasergun"
He's on the loose
He's got the juice
Like a pigeon with no wing
