Primus - Hennepin Crawler Lyrics




Well you can ride the hennenpin crawler for a dollar
Peddle it around the world
You can ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
Impress them steam punk girls
If you ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
You'll feel that burn in your thigh
Cause when you ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
You get to touch that pie in the sky

He'll show his crusty old pickle for a nickel
Must say I'd rather not
He tried to show a girl off of florence street
He's damn lucky he didn't get caught
Fell asleep on night with a lit cigarette
As he tried to drink away his pain
When a fireman doused his burnt out shack
All they found was a greasy stain

Go go
Go go
Go go
Go go
Go

Now you can ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
And peddle your cares away
You ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
You best be prepared to pay
Cause when you ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
There's no friends or cuttin' deals
You can ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
Sweat's gonna grease them wheels

Go go
Go go
Go go
Go go
Go go
Go go
Go go
Go

He tried to buy a lotta ore for a quarter
Way back in the olden days
He sold his soul for a donut hole
He could muster the nerve to ask for a raise
She sold sea shells and other things
Down by the old sea shore
When she sold her song to a beer commercial
She looked like a filthy whore
Haha

Go go
Go go
Go go
Go

Now you can ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
Peddle it around the world
You can ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
Impress them steam punk girls
You can ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
You feel that burn in your thigh
Cause when you ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar
You get to bite that pie in the sky
You get to bite that pie in the sky
You get to bite that pie in the sky
You get to bite that pie in the sky
You get to bite that pie in the sky

Go go
Go go
Go go
Go go

Hennepin, hennepin crawler
Hennepin, hennepin crawler
Hennepin, hennepin crawler
You can ride the hennepin crawler for a dollar

Primus Hennepin Crawler Comments
  1. Don Havard

    Love Primus,no if’s ands or buts

  2. Gak- Man

    When you were unsure that Primus could release a new album and not be a parody of themselves, and you were greeted by this dirty, beefy, audio assault.

  3. Aaron Hopkins

    I think this is my favourite song

  4. Rizzo323

    Jilly's on Smack

  5. Catfish Hunter

    4 people saw his greasy old pickle for a nickel......

  6. Flaming Strat Music

    Hope that pie in the the sky is apple,I've got a pang for it..

  7. TheSlenderman

    the greasiest grimiest of all the songs on this album... I love it

  8. George Lincoln Rockwell

    Now listen to the song Chernobyl Hamster by Nuclear Rabbit. I fucking love Primus.

  9. Austin Russell

    you get to bite that pie in the sky!!!

  10. Davide Gianluca

    i call those mixture nights hcrawlers

  11. Davide Gianluca

    This song reminds me of a night i got fucked up on a shitload of crack speed and heroin holy fuck

    Kleneu66

    Why would you admit to doing illegal drugs on YouTube?

    Kleneu66

    Not going to report you or anything, but still.

    Stephen Cosgrove

    +Kleneu66 FRENZ!!

    s d

    davide noo!

  12. shaun broughton

    Pork Soda is by far best album ever, who could ever forget the one and only "Mud"?

    Austin Russell

    shaun broughton i prefer fizzle fry. but pork soda is greatness as well. DMV Bob hamburger train

    Violence1320

    This one is really good too, Sea of cheese obviously, and Anti-pop album is a good one to groove to as well

    Jason Clark

    Pork soda is in their top 4 but either sailing the seas of cheese or frizzle fry are their best

    Rushian botz

    Frizzle Fry is the best

  13. progger

    1 person's afraid of ridin' the hennepin crawler!! 

    madasylum1

    If you look up the true meaning of the song, you'd see it's a criticism of sudo-intellectualism and activism. With that said, not riding the crawler is great.

    Tracey_Spencer

    @madasylum1 surely you mean sumo-intellectualism?

    Rickey Ripp

    @madasylum1 I honestly thought it was about doing drugs

  14. Tyler Beich

    Jays the man with a plan in this jam, problem???

  15. Tyler Beich

    One of the thousands of favs in my book

  16. burly dent

    brown album best ever

  17. burly dent

    my buddies built the hennepin crawler

  18. Charles Scharfen

    He gets funk-e wit it

  19. Brandon McCormick

    it does. fuck off. i got work to do.

  20. Brandon McCormick

    the Hennepin Crawler is actually a six wheeled vehicle that floats. is very fun as well.

  21. progger

    One person has fallen off the hennepin crawler.... '

  22. Matt Roberts

    brown album is a concept album, imo. When im in a mood to hear that one, there is nothing else that sounds as good. soo many songs with crazy timing. timing that doesnt even exist in most genres of music

  23. Matt Roberts

    I actually found out about south park by listening to primus

    nah, jk, I was only 12 when that show came out in canada and had no taste in music (beatles--)

  24. kaishggy y

    fine. we aren't on a futuba imageboard. now stop greentexting.

  25. loljewess

    greentexting isn't exclusive to 4chan, you know.

  26. kaishggy y

    you aren't on /b/ you faggot. stop greentexting.
    seriously, you are the definition of cancer.

  27. laserzt

    I'm so relieved that none of the top comments is "1 person has bad taste in music".
    Anybody else found out about primus because of watching Southpark?

  28. burly dent

    yup my buddy built it, I've driven it

  29. loljewess

    >Brown album
    >no bad songs

    please.

  30. UJWIK

    God I love Primus, such an amazing new album too!!

  31. TristenNashMusic

    This song is so sexy.

  32. mike pitman

    "Primus Sucks" forever.

  33. johhnywormtool

    'Cause Primus sucks? That's what you wanna hear? :)

  34. TheFamousMockingbird

    It is Jilly's on smack. How do you not like The Last Salmon Man? Or Hoinfodaman?

  35. Timothy Simonitsch

    There are not many true Primus fans left from what I gather from the comments?

  36. jamie896745

    ooooh you bitch

  37. Trgamemas

    lol huh?

  38. Trgamemas

    Ah ok thanks buddy. He sounds surprisingly like Herb on this

  39. philmeister5669

    Yes he is.

  40. Trgamemas

    Is Jay Lane the drummer on this album??

    Cam

    Trgamemas yep.

  41. Music Box

    @Cyberphreak135 I don't even know how it's possile to not like Tradegys a comin

  42. Joseph Gregory

    this and killys on smack are the only songs I like off the album...

    compared to not one bad song on frizzle fry, sailing cheese, brown album or pork soda

  43. Aleowicious

    I like how the bass sounds like a wet fart.

  44. Shane Waldeck

    Actually I think it's literally about the Hennepin Crawler which is a 4 wheeled contraption made by Krank-Boom-Clank that is essentially a 3 or 4 person pedal car that rides on roads as well as tracks. The pictures online of the actual Hennepin Crawler look a lot like the shots in Primus' trailer video for this album that are shown during the 'Jilly's On Smack' preview.

  45. Bob C ock

    Could this be a little reference to Tom Waits' "9th & Hennepin"?
