Primus – The Chastising Of Renegade lyrics

Renegade, come here boy

There was this kid in our neighbourhood
His poppa named him Renegade
He lived up to his name
With all the trouble that he made

Renegade, come here boy
I said, "Renegade, come here boy" (? It's pathetic?)

One day ol' Renegade
Snuck into the Park Theatre downtown
For a laugh he set fire to the screen
Burnt the whole damn place to the ground
He thought that no one would mind
He did that sort of thing all the time

But his pop was waitin' for him

At age fifteen Renegade
Stole a tow truck from Arnie's Shell
Drove it through the front of a hardware store,
Spent the night in the county jail
He didn't seem to mind a bit
He liked the attention he would get

See, someone told him it was all in the name

Renegade (this hurts me more then you, but Pop's gotta do what he's gotta do), come here boy

Renegade (I've done about all I can, come take your medicine like a man), come here boy

I said, Renegade (this hurts me more then you, My aim here to try to stop what you been do'n?), come here boy

Renegade (stand up turn around, reach I'll take that fanny Down), come here boy

Renegade (this hurts me more then you, best start doing what I tell you to), come here boy

Renegade (don't make me wast my time I ain't gonna spoil no son of mine), come here boy
