Rusty Cage – The Knife Song lyrics
[strophe 1]:
There is an old tadition,
A game we all can play.
You start by getting liquored up
And sharpening your blade.

You take a shot of whiskey,
You grab your knife and pray
And spread apart your fingers,
And that is what you say:

[pre-refrain]:
Oh!
I have all my fingers,
The knife goes chop! Chop! Chop!
If I miss the spaces in between
My fingers will come off!

And if I hit my fingers,
Blood will soon come out.
But all the same I play this game
Cause that's what it's all about.

[strophe 2]
No, you can't use a pencil!
You can not use a pen!
The only way is with a knife,
When danger is your friend.

And some may call it stupid,
Some may call it dumb.
But all the same we play this game
Because it's so damn fun!

[pre-refrain]:
Oh!
I have all my fingers,
The knife goes chop! Chop! Chop!
If I miss the spaces in between
My fingers will come off!

And if I hit my fingers,
The blood will soon come out.
But all the same I play this game
Cause that's what it's all about.

[refrain]:
Oh!
Chop! Chop! Chop! Chop! Chop! Chop! Chop!
I'm picking up the speed.
And if I hit my fingers
Then my hand will start to bleed!

    The knife song is interesting... Its all about the game and how to play including the consequences of hitting your fingers. The song has such a dark meaning yet in sounds to nice ( to me ). Now looking at the first verse you see the following - There is an old tradition, A game we all can play. You start by getting liquored up. And sharpening your blade. Expanding on that it started in the 1800's
