Lyrics

Well she's as mean as a needle
don't get too close to the heater
she's like a mean shop keeper
who got an extra gun
she about 6'4" and she's a wrecking ball
now go ahead and kiss her
she brought the bad weather with her
she got you coming through the dog door
she got you coming through the dog door

now pigs get fat hogs get slaughtered
you ought to walk away
well you can't but you ought to
climb the rickety stairs
she got the long black hair
but don't sit there
electricity chair
she got you coming through the dog door
she got you coming through the dog door

pitchfork
crowbar
claw hammer
hot tar

she's got ruin in her name
but she can make it rain
she's a small town jail
and you're starving in the belly of a whale
she got you coming through the dog door
She got you coming through the dog door

pitchfork
crowbar
claw hammer
hot tar
