The Isle of Man

rx RSM's with purple necks
a nose for trouble and kinky sex
rejuvenate an old pudenda
with a bunch of sticks
and a young offender

where are the wierdoes, thugs, and louts
down in the dungeons dishing it out
their politics would recommend
a bunch of sticks and a young offender

authority its use perverts
submission to it always hurts
the cops and the church and the house of keys
bring back the birch for bums like these

Bunch of Twigs

in the isle of man there are no louts
they're all down the dungeons dishing it out
think them tough but tender
with a bunch of twigs
and a young offender

old men with purple necks
who tell you sport is better than sex
rejuvenare an old pudenda
with a bunch of twigs and a young offender

sweet little fifteen on a summer hike
vandal maimed, vandal spite
vandals sent to up above
a punishment meted out with love
