Well Americans, what?
Nothing better to do?
Why don't you kick yourself out?
You're an immigrant, too.

Who's using who?
What should we do?
Well, you can't be a pimp,
And a prostitute, too.



What do you think all this means?

It means Jack White (thats his name right?) is a libtard.

Okay, okay, we get it Jack already. You have angst. Now write a nice love song.

I'd like to nail his wife/sister, or whatever she is.

I knew about the White Stipes before they became popular...

I also forgot about the White Stripes and have no desire to remember them...

Meh, it's entertainment. I don't look to minstrels to help my policy decisions.

Icky Thump is a decent disc but not their best (in the last three that is).

I like the "pimp/prostitute" line though.

WELL THAT'S FOOLISH!

I ALWAYS LOOK TO FAMOUS ENTERTAINERS FOR THEIR INSIGHTS INTO THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE BECAUSE I FIGURE FAME AND WEALTH AND SEX WITH SUPERMODELS AND WALL-TO-WALL SYCOPHANTS AND TABLOIDS HAVE REALLY GROUNDED THEM.

It means he's a liberal piss ant.

There's a difference between pioneers and parasites.

Those are some bodacious ta-tas.

That being said, he apparently doesn't get that we like legal immigrants, we don't like illegal immigrants.

Ex-wife, and yes, she is gorgeous!! They have a couple of videos, on Rhapsody, of their concert DVD "Black Pool Lights". If the videos are entirely live I'm extremely impressed with the performance.
Link Posted: 8/16/2007 9:50:38 AM EDT
eh - like others said - I look to be entertained - not for political insight. I like Rage against the machine - even though they are commies they rock the fuck out.

And Meg White is H O T!!!!

"Na na na na naaaaa naa"

What do you think it means? I heard that in there too.

Who cares, it's music.

The solo in that song makes me want to rip my eyes out..It's the worst solo in a song ever. I thought Cobain's solo's sucked.

i totally agree with you on that. i was actually kind of suprised when i heard it. sort of remindes me of something you'd hear from The Shaggs.

other than that i think they're pretty good, and better than most.

Jack may be a libtard, but the lyrics of the entire song need to be evaluated to get a more complete picture. I think the song is a combination of a bad drunk/hooker experience in mexico, and a jab at the current illegal immigration policy of America.

Yah-hee,
Icky thump,
Who'da thunk?
Sittin drunk on a wagon to Mexico.

Her hair,
What a chump,
Well, my head got a bump,
When I hit it on the radio.

Redhead señorita,
Looking dead,
Came and said,
"Need a bed?"
En español.

I said,
"Gimme a drink of water
I'm gonna sing around the colla'
And I don't need a microphone."

Icky thump,
With a lump in my throat,
Grabbed my coat,
And I was wreck on,
I was ready to go.

And I swear,
Besides the hair,
She had one white eye,
One black stare,
Lookin' up,

Lyin' there.
On the stand,
Near her hand,
Was a candy cane,
Black rum, sugar cane,
Dry ice and something strange.

La la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la.

Well Americans, what?
Nothing better to do?
Why don't you kick yourself out?
You're an immigrant, too.

Who's using who?
What should we do?
Well, you can't be a pimp,
And a prostitute, too.

Icky thump,
Handcuffed to a bunk,
Robbed blind,
Looked around,
And there was nobody else.

Left alone,
I hit myself with a stone,
Went home and learned how
To clean up after myself.

I was bitching about the song as well when my friend said I was missing the message which was, if you don't want illegal immigrants then don't hire them.

Now I'm confused. I don't care for the song anyway, I like most of their other stuff.

I really like the older white stripes stuff. Icky thump is ok, if i dont already have a headache.

I read an article on Jack white a long time ago, saying that at one time he almost joined the Marine Corps. He obviously didnt, but thats more than alot of other scumbags out there.

It kinda looks like something being said to him by the prostitute that mugs him as an excuse to mug him.

hmm, good point, i hadn't thought of they lyrics that way.

eta: i don't know wtf you people are are thinking re: meg. she looks like a retarded munster with nice boobs.

Link Posted: 8/16/2007 1:24:29 PM EDT
I believe the song is a narrative of a trip to Mexico. So the bit about kicking our selves out means kicking ourselves out of Mexico, where we are the immigrants. And having nothing better to do is questioning why we are in Mexico, as if we are just bored and have nothing else to do.

Either way, I like Get Behind Me Satan more.
