Cough Syrup Lyrics

She played for the angels
I played for the tribe
The summer had been stolen and the bases were all loaded
There was big Money on the line
Big money all the time yeah
There was big MONEY ON THE LINE
I can't walk so I guess I'm gonna stay at...

    In reply @anonymous down below:
    Have you ever tried to play music on DXM? lol its kind of impossible. Don't worry I used to think this was about DXM abuse as well but no. Its about things you can't avoid/change.

    The song is about things that suck that you can't avoid. Such as cough syrup. "I can't walk, so I guess I'm gonna stay at home." "A friend of mine had told me that there ain't no point in moanin."

    "If you wanna know the truth you gotta dig up Johnny Booth" alludes to John Wilkes Booth, who shot a great president, which is something we can't change. The food in Europe sucks, but if you want to enjoy Europe, you've got to eat.

    People who think that Butthole Surfers' lyrics don't make sense are retarded, they're all some of the most blatant lyrics I've ever heard.

    He mumbles. That's all.

    Try listening harder, every song is really easy to understand if you pay attention.
