    "Stagger Lee [Multimedia Track]" Lyrics

    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

    It was back in '32 when times were hard
    He had a Colt forty-five and a deck of cards
    Stagger Lee

    He wore rat-drawn shoes and an old stetson hat
    Had a '28 Ford, had payments on that
    Stagger Lee

    His woman threw him out in the ice and snow
    And told him, "Never ever come back no more."
    Stagger Lee

    So he walked through the rain, and he walked through the mud
    Till he came to a place called The Bucket Of Blood
    Stagger Lee

    He said "Mr. Motherfucker, you know who I am?"
    The barkeeper said, "No, and I don't give a good goddamn."
    To Stagger Lee

    He said, "Well, bartender, it's plain to see
    I'm that bad motherfucker called Stagger Lee."
    Mr. Stagger Lee

    Barkeep said, "Yeah, I've heard your name down the way
    And I kick motherfucking asses like you every day."
    Mr Stagger Lee

    Well, those were the last words that the barkeep said
    'Cause Stag put four holes in his motherfucking head

    Just then in came a broad called Nellie Brown
    Was known to make more money than any bitch in town

    She struts across the bar, hitching up her skirt
    Over to Stagger Lee, she starts to flirt
    With Stagger Lee

    She saw the barkeep, said, "O God, he can't be dead!"
    Stag said, "Well, just count the holes in the motherfucker's head."

    She said, "You ain't look like you scored in quite a time.
    Why not come to my pad? It won't cost you a dime."
    Mr. Stagger Lee

    "But there's something I have to say before you begin
    You'll have to be gone before my man Billy Dilly comes in,
    Mr. Stagger Lee."

    "I'll stay here till Billy comes in, till time comes to pass
    And furthermore I'll fuck Billy in his motherfucking ass."
    Said Stagger Lee

    "I'm a bad motherfucker, don't you know?
    And I'll crawl over fifty good pussies just to get one fat boy's asshole,"
    Said Stagger Lee

    Just then Billy Dilly rolls in and he says, "You must be
    That bad motherfucker called Stagger Lee."
    Stagger Lee

    "Yeah, I'm Stagger Lee, and you better get down on your knees
    And suck my dick because if you don't, you're gonna be dead,"
    Said Stagger Lee

    Billy dropped down and slobbered on his head
    And Stag filled him full of lead
    Oh yeah
