lyrics

When you find your little girlfriend
don't give in - because she's Satan.
I know that it's hard to compete with the Devil.
But she's so good, yeah she's so good, and she's so good.
And it's so good, and it's so good, and it's so good.

"Triple Six" I swear to God is written on her soul.
She plays tricks on me when she has nowhere to go.

When you find that special someone
be aware - incase they're Satan.
I know that it's hard to compete with the Devil.
But she's so good, yeah she's so good, and she's so good.
It hurts so good, it hurts so good, it hurts so good.

"Triple Six" was written on her book the other day.
She's one chick I don't mess with if I wanna see
The morning come and birds that sing.
I pray to God to save the king.
It's me I'm thinking of too late.
I need a break!

The Keepers of the Carpet version is a higher quality recording intended to be a part of "The Pride of Zebulous" EP. Though Aaron Hefley did a fine job recording us (Jordan, Rano LoVan, Jason Holland) I think the general feel was that we weren't capturing the wild live vibe of the song that was becoming a staple in our live set, so it didn't make the EP. I remember performing it at "The Party Basement" on Wilmoth in Ames during the 2004 VEISHEA riots. There was a wild energy to the show. (I know I have some 8mm camera footage of this gig as well.) We didn't know about the riots going on in the streets, but the show got out of control. We had an insane jam session at the end of "666" and I threw my beloved Fender Cyclone across the room and hit a guy. I didn't know this until I watched the footage though.
