Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Every Trick In The Book lyrics

From the ep here we go again and last dead mouse 7" single

A plaid bow tie and yellow socks
A sharkskin suit and tie with docs
We're steppin out and I'm steppin up
Paint the town, burn it up downtown- fuck it up!
We'll just see if they can bounce
We'll get shut off in will amounts
There's other gin mills we can kick
The night's still young, let's have some fun
And we'll use every trick
Yeah every trick in the book, sinker line and hook
Stop and sit and look
Every trick in the(2x), every trick in the book
Highway to heaven stairway to hell
We'll pick this last thing you can tell
We're riding on a collision course
Never surrender, no way out- no remorse!
Now throw a fit and throw a stone
Or a monkey wrench into the stew
They got no paddle up the creek,
No shake and rattle, so we'll use every trick!
Every trick in the book
Sinker, line and hook
Stop and sit and look
Every trick in the (6x)
Every trick in the book
We take it to the limits
Every trick in the book
I don't care how many you took
Every trick in the book
Got em up, got em up, got em on now
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
