lyrics

Well I broke down on the highway
Tried to hitch a ride
Some clowns in an ice-blue Nova said,
Get inside
One had a quart of O.T., in his shaky fist
The other a jar of double-cross
Mixed in with barbiturates

Whatever I get my hands on I'll take
Whatever I get my hands on I'll take
Anything this dangerous, you know it can't be fake
Whatever I get my hands on I'll take

So we went to their apartment
It looked like a funeral store
But there was a party goin' on
On the second floor
They offered me a peace pipe
So how could I resist
The lure of gettin' on the pipe
And all the fun I'd ever missed

Whatever I get my hands on I'll take
Whatever I get my hands on I'll take
Anything this dangerous you know it can't be fake
Whatever I get my hands on I'll take

The hour was gettin' late
We knew we'd need some more
Otis had a bright idea
Let's rob a TV store
Seemed like a good idea
At the time
Henry handed me a gun and said,
Let's commit that crime

Whatever I get my hands on I'll take
Whatever I get my hands on I'll take
Anything this violent, you know it can't be fake
Whatever I get my hands on I'll take
