    Lyrics
    I got a song that ain't no melody, I'm gonna sing it to my friends
    I got a song that ain't no melody, I'm gonna sing it to my friends
    Will it go round in circles, will it fly high like a bird up in the sky
    Will it go round in circles, will it fly high like a bird up in the sky
    I got a story ain't no moral, I let the bad guy win every once in a while

    Lyrics
    Slaughter's going to blow your mind
    Slaughter does not waste his time
    My advice to you is this
    If you shoot at him you better not miss
    Slaughter's big, bad, black and bold
