Grow it black
Cut it back
Amanda is a scalape

Anyone want some water
Amanda is a scalape
Poor Amanda
Oh Amanda

Stop thinking
Stop being
Amanda is a scalape

Dirty {????} piss in the pool
Amanda is a scalape
Poor Amanda
Oh Amanda

Just all power{?}
Will do that{???}
Why would you ask me that?
Why would you ask me that?
Why would you ask me that?

Rhyme and reason
No-one needs them
Amanda is a scalape

Three time throughloo {?}
Tire blew out
Amanda is a scalape
Poor Amanda
Oh Amanda

Testininpours {huh?}
Amanda is a scalape

Beer can astain {?}
Telephone rings
Amanda is a scalape
Poor Amanda
Oh Amanda

Just all power{?}
Will do that{???}
Why would you ask me that?
Why would you ask me that?
Why would you ask me that?



I was surprised to find that their were no lyrics up for this song, but now I see why! We need some kind of reward for anyone who can figure this one out!!!

Now, I haven't heard this song in a wee while, but I always thought the word 'scalape' was not used in the song? Does it not normally go 'Amanda, is a schlampe'?? Just a question, I'll have a proper listen when I get home... And good work, Anklepants

Note: female voice is in brackets. There's one word I have no idea about. While it presumably says scalape throughout I've gone for a more phonetic approach, I could, of course, be wrong at any point.


Grow it black
Cut it back
Amanda (is a schlampe)
(Anyone want some water?)
Amanda (is a schlampe)
Poor Amanda, ah, Amanda

(Stop thinking, stop being)
Amanda (is a schlampe)
(Dirty flip-flops, piss in the pool)
Amanda (is a schlampe)
Poor Amanda, (ah, Amanda)

(Truck stop hell, I will collapse)
Why would you ask me that?
Why would you ask me that?
Why would you ask me that?
Why would you ask me that?

Rhyme and reason no-one needs them
Amanda (is a schlampe)
(Three times trailer tyre blew out)
Amanda (is a schlampe)
Poor Amanda, (ah, Amanda)

[?]

Amanda (is a schlampe)
(Beer can, ashtrays, the telephone rings)
Amanda (is a schlampe)
Poor Amanda, (ah, Amanda)

(Truck stop hell, I will collapse)
Why would you ask me that?
Why would you ask me that?
Why would you ask me that?
