  • LYRICS
  • My name is Mud
    Not to be confused with Bill or Jack or Pete or Dennis
    My name is Mud and it's always been
    'Cause I'm the most boring sons-a-bitch you've ever seen
    I dress in blue-yes navy blue from head to toe
  • I'm rather drab except my patent shoes
    I make 'em shine, well most the time
    'Cept today my feet are troddin' on by this friend of mine
    Six foot two and rude as hell
    I got to get him in the ground before he starts to smell

    My name is Mud 
                                
  • My name is Mud, but call me Alowishus Devadander Abercrombie
    That's long for Mud so I've been told
    Told that by this sonsabitch that lies before me
    bloated blue and cold
    I've got my pride, I drink my wine
    I'd drink the finest except I haven't earned a dime in several months
    Or were it years
    The breath on that fat bastard could bring any man to tears
    We had our words, a common spat
    So I kissed him upside the cranium with an aluminum baseball bat

    My name is Mud
