Originally recorded by the MC5, and appeared on their 1969 LP Kick Out The Jams.

The Melvins version appeared on some Japanese pressings of Houdini, and as a b-side to the "Hooch" CD single and "Lizzy" CD single, as well as on the bootleg compliation Leech.

The Melvins also recorded another MC5 cover, "Poison", with MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer, on his album The Hard Stuff, and released their remix on Singles 1-12.

Lyrics

After some good tokes and a six pack

We can sock 'em out for you

Till you're flat on your back

You know I got to keep it up

Cause I'm a natural man

I'm a born hell raiser

And I don't give a damn

I'm the man for you baby

I'm the man for you baby

I'm the man for you baby

I'm the man for you baby

I'm the man for you


Workin' here before your momma

soakin wet

You think you're satisfied

You ain't seen nothing yet

I said WHAM BAM THANK YOU MA'AM


I'm a born ass pincher

And I don't give a damn

lead…

Rama lama fa fa fa…


You can lay it down on me, momma

Any old time

We can shimmy so good

We'll both be stoned O-Mind

I'm irresistibly bad

The cooles' what am

Robin Tyner's the name

And I kick out the jams


lead…

Rama lama fa fa fa…
