Lynch, Stephen - The Ballad Of Scarface Lyrics




Do you know Tony Montana
Rode a boat here from Havana
Scar from eating pussy lines his face

Finds a day job washing dishes
Hates his life, he only wishes
Some day in this world to find his place

And he has a scheme
For his own drug regime
Dream, Scarface, dream

Hired by the gangster Omar
He climbs the ranks, he's getting so far
Selling guns and drugs out in the streets

Soon he works for Frank, the main boss
Doing hits and dodging chainsaws
Getting rich and living life so sweet

But he craves romance
In his disco pants
Dance, Scarface, dance

See, Tony wants to rule the world
So he kills Frank and steals his girl
She'll give him the son he's never had

Alas, her womb is so polluted
From the powder she has tooted
There'll be no son and that makes Tony sad

As he looks to the sky
Hear his plaintive cry
Fly, pelican, fly

Now he starts to get too high
On his own supply
Thinking he's the only game in town

And his enemies decide
On a plot of regicide
It's time for the king to lose his crown
Scarface must go down

Oh, Tony's killers soon surround him
Sensing death has finally found him
He aims his gun, prepared to do his part

And as he shouts "It's not the end,
say hello to my little friend!"
Assassins' bullets pierce his fragile heart

It's a tragic goodbye
He had flown so high
Cuban butterfly
Die, Scarface, die

Lynch, Stephen The Ballad Of Scarface Comments
  1. Deborah Stein

    Lovr your voice in all your stuff.

  2. Enne

    Should've done this sooner

  3. Rob Stafford

    It really makes you think about scarface as more of a classical tragedy in the vein of Shakespeare which tbh it really is. That's why it's such an epic film, it is the complete rise and fall of a king who is taken down by his own hubris.

  4. Spider Jimmy

    This song legit actually makes me feel a little sad for Scarface.

    McSalty Sack

    Spider Jimmy Have you never seen the movie?

    Spider Jimmy

    @McSalty Sack I have, but admittedly I heard this song before I decided to watch it.

  6. Nicholas Peters

    Fraggin’ beautiful man.

  7. Kevin Foster

  13. Narcan Nova

    From the power she has tooted..

    McSalty Sack

    Zack Baker why’s that funny?

    Imiss Maggie

    "Powder"

  14. Gil Barajas

    I love how the third verse has the big fire fight scene music in the background. Great song

  15. elatus

    Some of Stephen Lynch's songs are amazing. The voice, instrumentals, witty lyrics... Hes a great comedian and a great musician.

  16. L-Bone

    Awesome song

  17. Chris Steffek

    So when I was listening to this song I thought up a verse: When I was talking to a man one day he got angry and said "go fuck yourself," but his words had another meaning, he wouldn't understand this feeling, because I had a twin, and I didn't want to fuck him..... / it's an okay verse...

  18. rohde33

    Dont get high on your own supply rule 1.

    Say HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND

  19. vanhalenfan74729

    Actually, it turns the movie from a drama to a comedy. "I told you not to fool me, Tony! HEY MAN, FOOL YOU!!!" *slams phone down*

  20. vanhalenfan74729

    Scars from eating pussy lined his face... Possibly one of the best lines in all of music.

  21. zAlphaWolfXz

    Just because it is stephen lynch doesn't mean he can't make bad songs. Not saying this is a bad song.

  22. IgnorantStoner

    Best line in the entire song: "Fly, pelican, fly"

    If you don't think so, then you've clearly never seen Scarface and/or a pelican before.

  23. Wow that's immature

    This song is just genuinely beautiful

  24. Scounger01

    this songs not even one of his offensive ones. its just what happens in the movie.

  25. Mike Taylor

    Why would you "dislike"? It's Stephen Lynch...you know what you're signing up for when you watch...

  26. TheHussar45

    JdihuvkvkfirstH

  27. BlueEyedDemon88

  28. Alice Laurant

    This song is strangely soothing. O_o

  29. Hardcore Bunny

  30. xXMoMoMagicXx

  36. Justin Button

    @Leise55 Watch the movie Teeth

  37. Leise55

    This song taught me to always check the snatch before you eat it, what the fuck was inside that thing to scar him up?

  38. K Bleak

    Can we get some new top comments?

    Hell fucking like this one, but one year ago?

  39. Trimmen

    @cdeknight00 yes

  40. KlausMyNameIs

    Scarface bored the crap out of me, to be honest..

  41. M Williams

    You guys could probably stop replying to Cdeknight00's comment. It's been one year and if he hasn't seen it by now he ain't going to :p

  54. Zach Stimson

    @cdeknight00 YES YES YES dont let anyone tell you differently

  55. TheLegalizeWeed

    @cdeknight00 It's worth watching once, the scene where he sticks his face in the plate then goes on a rampage is a classic.

  56. mike taylor

    @HMH013ify you suck

  57. HMH013ify

    @Drew0000 Good for you, but everyone's entitled to their own opinion.

  58. ShredWithMe

    i listen to this song everyday, you don't even have to watch the movie because Mr Lynch explained everything...lol

  59. HMH013ify

    Okay, a few things about the comments of this video. First off, I see no reason for brunub11's domment to be voted negatively so many times. Because I saw the movie last week and yes, it bored the hell outta me too. I'm not saying it sucked, I liked a few parts like "Flyyy pelican", but the action scenes it was known for were too few and far between. Sencond, The Jonas sisters suck, blow, swallow and ask for more afterward. Nickelback however, kick ass for a band of their genre.

  60. Iratefiend

    @cdeknight00 Hell yeah, But On A Pay Channel, TV Cuts Out All The Good Parts.

  61. Chizzlobber

    @FranklyImaPerson I was not comparing them to sheer raw power that rock is as i used qutoation marks surrounding , They and pre teens claim the are but i say fuck them.

    Been a lynch fan since a little bit special and alot of people were brining up nickle back and jonas brothers for some reason? I thought i'd chip in my opinion

  62. Frankly Ima Person

    @cdeknight00 i found it to have slow paseing at times, but when it gets going, it sure does, it is a character driven movie, with one of the greatest climaxes i have seen in a movie

    i would sugjest seeing it if nothing more then to get an idea of the times after the bay or pigs and to see al pachino in his prime

  63. Chizzlobber

    @FranklyImaPerson I apologise but I'm having trouble trying to interoperate what you are portraying in you comment would you elaborate a little so I may reach this revelation ?

  64. Frankly Ima Person

    @Chisholm342 i am insulted you even have that genra in any relation to those waste of cds

  65. Frosty56798

    @Chewi105 thats the reason I looked it up... and Stephen Lynch is amazing!!!

  66. utedass1313

    And as he shouts "It's not the end, say hello to my little friend", assassins bullets pierce his fragile heart. BEST LINE!

  67. ImperiousViking

    @cdeknight00
    it's not the best movie in the world, but it's worth watching, just becuase there are so many parodies and spoofs of it, that you wouldn't understand unless you've seen it..

  68. Tobi2x4

    @Chewi105 It was indeed! It was set to Deathnote, when Mello is killed. I re-watched it last night xD

  69. Chewi105

    as i recall, this was recently used in an AMV for AMV Hell 5

  70. STUNTS1516

    @cdeknight00
    To be honest not really..its not that great a movie, its worth watching for pachino's incredible performance though.

  71. jaknife99

    Only he can make a story of a cocaine peddler sound so beautiful.

  72. FathomLordKarathr

    @cdeknight00 yes

  73. NuttyRage Gaming

    @cdeknight00 Scarface is an epic movie, its over 20 years old and still talked about today and beeing watched by all kinds of people, but just like all movies it isnt for everyone

  74. Guchi_Bruh

    man this song was perfect for describin the best gangster film
    and for some reason around the middle-end i felt sad for tony...

  75. charles manson

    @cdeknight00
    It's arguably one of the greatest movie of all time.

  76. Jacob Ruiz

    what makes this great is that if you didn't speak english you would think this is such a nice song. lmao

  77. carsonkent

    @brunub11 i'm 26 and i'm toking....and i have a job...and i contribute society. weed doesn't make you stupid-being stupid makes you stupid. herb makes you happy. this song is awesome!

  78. darksoul517

    This sounds like the hole movie right here.

  79. Uthandir

    @brunub11 same

  80. cdeknight

    Is Scarface a movie worth watching?

  81. Ironsped18

    Flawless Victory.

  82. Chizzlobber

    Thats your opinion and i respect that for me i'll put a little hendrix or zeppelin just to chill in the background : )

  83. Paul Green

    Mad Max is a post-apocalyptic clasic!

  84. Paul Green

    well, Nicleback is at least listenable as background music..

  85. DemonDZ

    Indeed he is

  86. Chizzlobber

    Either way the original point Stephen Lynch is great Jonas brothers and Nickleback are not hahaha

  87. Chizzlobber

    Not trolling genuine hate for Jonas brothers
    and trollinging normal is thumbs down surprisingly i got 13 up hahahaha

  88. oysta187

    I was gonna watch Scarface today, but after hearing this song, it brought it all back and i'll watch Mad Max 1 instead. Sweet.

  89. Nope Forgetit

    Right. That is best shown from such lines as "Scar from eating pussy lines his face."

  90. DemonDZ

    You know he discards a song idea if his wife doesn't laugh at it?

  91. Rasenshuriken90

    See, this is one of his better songs. Not too funny, but not too serious. Just the perfect amount.

  92. skigh45

    this is kinda....gay

  93. Chizzlobber

    dude nickleback suck and the jonas brothers are the most pathetic excuse for a "rock" band ever

  94. MidKnight421

    Fuck you, Stephen Lynch..! This shit is almost depressing! Lmao!

  95. tony montana

    crazy peanuts is the best

  96. blackgigus

    *sniff* That was beautiful. T^T

  97. TWEC21

    i don't know, I love Hallelujah lo.
    This is a close second

  98. Hunter Montoya

    Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and say it's the best song on the album.
