Lyrics   status: confirmed

Turbo goes to rocket, put your kiss in my hand
Sinsate your belly down
Bend down round this garbage can
Plow pound down dirty starfield road
Hot ham slap it muscle skin jam load
Blam bam I transplode you to the lamb
Jesus is screaming your name
Violent loving yeah, kissing golden
We're going insane
But where is the shame
When the stuck pig is to blame
"Ai ye butt cheeks can't be tamed
As I splooey my name
In flame."
