The Lyrics

That's knife, (that's knife}
O.J.'s weapon meant to slay
They come in diff'rent sizes
Deadly in fray..
There are those that sing a switch blade tune
Big ones swing and chop, and can drop you soon

I said, that's knife (that's knife)
Just as wicked as they may seem
They have another use, slicin' food supreme
So don't fear it, keep it pointed down,
'Cause in this old world, there's lots of them around

Well, there are Bowies, and cleavers, and sabres, and daggers,
Machetes to swing
Those that stab and stick, can slice and can dice
Almost anything..
If you find someone shovin' one in your face
You better pull a big gun, or get out of the place..

That's knife (that's knife) takes no license to buy it
Meant for throat slitting, a fight, or in a riot
Deep in your hide can slide, easy as piecin' a pie
If some guy has one in hand, respect that guy..

Could be a butcher, with cleaver, or sabre, or dagger,
Machete to swing..
He could stab and stick, and slice you, dice you,
Almost anything..
When you see somebody,,shove a blade in your face,
You better show a big gun, or get out of that place..

That's knife (that's knife) that's knife, no license to buy it
Many have been used to cut up folks, and a knife is quiet
So beware of your space...and, I'll tell you why
If one's in somebody's hand...and they hate'll die

My old CB 'handle' was "Mac the Knife". I've always liked sharp, pointy things. Looks like another jury is going to have a slice at O.J. Of course, they won't let his previous acquital or celebrity status influence their verdict.

Sir L'AIR de Farce, ~The Duke o'Edge~ " Le Marquis de Machete " . . . I love this OS, as I did see ~Mr S~ sing this live at the old Circle Star Theatre; and I was a major fan of the OJ debacle . . . Good write, I wouldn't mind holding your ' blade ' during a raid, Sir !

Amazing work. You really sliced into that one. Pardon the pun. I happen to like sharp pointy things myself. I own a pair of Edward Scissorhands hands and some Freddy Krueger gloves. My favourite musical just happens to be Sweeney Todd.

You're welcome. That's probably why my favourite member of the x men is wolverine.
