Ok, so for years I have never really known what Pig is saying in his standard Pig raps. He always climaxes the first part of the break with this line. Here is what I think he is saying, can someone provide the actual words so I don't sound like a dipshit in my car when I am singing along.

"She got back spasm middy, gravediggin' on a rind, working undercover in her four hung wide."

Back Spasm Middy is now going to be the name of my next project.

From the Annotated Grateful Dead Lyric Book
Code: Select all
" She's got box-back nitties
  Great big noble thighs
  Workin' undercover with a boar hog's eye"
Some of the lyrics in the book are wrong at times so this might not be EXACTLY what he sings, but it sounds close.

This is from over at The Well discussing Lovelight....

That's a question that has been discussed many times in many venues. I was
never satisfied with the answers until Eric Thompson played me a tape he made
of Ron McKernan from the very early '60s, singing that verse in a much slower
song.

The words are:

She got box back knitties
Great big noble thighs
Workin' undercover
With a boar hog eye

"She got back spasm middy, gravediggin' on a rind, working undercover in her four hung wide."........that right there sounds like something Beck would come up with back in the day.

I was wondering this recently. I love that part of the song. I was about to post this question but found my answer here.

She got box back knitties
Great big noble thighs
Workin' undercover
With a boar hog eye

Thanks!

Someone asked Jerry that question in an interview once, he replied something like "I never knew what the f*@* he was sayin'!"
