lyrics

What did you say? Hey hey...
I said I said it’s over my head...

Make the grade, fit the bill
Are you over the hill?
Or are you just searchin’
For some kind of thrill?

Learn the ropes, in the raw
Dream of that saw
You know they’ll be lookin’
For every flaw

Slug it out, with a roar
Even the score
Your momma’s a pimp
And your daddy’s a whore

Did you sin? Gotta pray
If you wanna be saved
Call us ahead of time
We’ll reserve you a grave

Hey hey

Off the mark, give it time
Save a nickel and dime
Or else you’ll just be left
With reason and rhyme

Give a wink, close the deal
You know it’s been real
There’s just no melting
That soul of steel

Play the fool, from the hip
Then give ‘em the slip
Rev up that Mustang
And leave us a strip

It’s your choice, to dive deep
Or climb so steep
But watch out cuz next time
We’re playin’ for keeps

What did you say? Hey hey...

I said I said it’s over my head...
I said I said I’d rather be dead

about

Cutleri Brooklyn, New York

An eclectic, avant-garde approach to traditional folk, combining three-part harmony with unconventional instrumentation accented by otherworldly, abrasive violin licks and slippery, psychedelic clarinet lines, all underpinned by a banjo sound that can be melodious and soothing one moment and percussive and arrhythmic the next.

Fork: Jessie Shaffer
Knife: Heidi Harris
Spoon: Christen Napier
