Pawn Shop Lyrics

Down there at the pawn shop it's only way to shop
down there at the pawn shop if it's not in stone
down there at the pawn shop at no end, no way to shop

down there at the pawn shop what has been told
albino made of stone just remember that...

    Lead singer and guitarist Brad Nowell had a very bad heroin addiction that killed him eventually. He became so into drugs that he'd often pawn his guitar for drug money. His producer, Miguel, would go in 5 minutes later and buy it back.

    Originally the song title was "the porn shop" but the record company made them change the title. It's about taking a trip to get some porn
