(Vote for) Knock 'em out and Fuck 'em Eddie (Live at the Town Hall)
(Vote for) Knock-em-out-and-Fuck-em Eddie
Knock-em-out-and-Fuck-em Eddie wasn’t an anti-semite.
Knock-em-out-and-Fuck-em Eddie didn’t know Jews from juice.
Knock-em-out-and-Fuck-em Eddie never questioned the right
of a man to turn up at another man’s door to prove
(by pointing at the pages of a Bible) that that guy’s home
was now this guy’s home because this book said that God
had made a pact with some donkey-nomad called Avram
who had met God on the way down from Ur of the Chaldees.
Knock-em-out-and-Fuck-em Eddie couldn’t care less about God.
God never hung around the bus station toilets
in the tight blue jeans which Eddie liked to see on boys and girls.
Knock-em-out-and-Fuck-em Eddie would invite
nice looking boys and girls of the age of consent
back to his house to party and if it just so happened
that they didn’t drink he’d knock ‘em out and fuck ‘em anyway.
And Knock-em-out-and-Fuck-em Eddie would get sent down
for it and if he was lucky they’d put him in with a nice looking boy
and then sometime after the lights went out for the night
Knock-em-out-and-Fuck-em Eddie would invade the boy
whatever the UN or the Fourth Geneva Convention said.
He’d get sent to solitary confinement so he couldn’t
knock anyone else out and fuck them and then the day
would come and Knock-em-out-and-Fuck-em Eddie
would have paid his debt and he would be back out on the street again
inviting nice looking girls and boys back to his place
where he had all that was needed for parties.
He wouldn’t sit watching the news with them and showing
his caring side by saying “those fucking Jews” or “those
fucking Arabs” or “war is bad, it kills babies”,
he’d stick a video on instead and stick a triple vodka
into the orange juice and turn up the heating
and wait and see what he was going to have to do to this one.
