Hi all,

I've always wondered what the lyrics are during the "you gotta watch him, gotta watch him" part

Anybody know what the part of lyrics are??

I've always wondered too. Just been listening to it on constant repeat to try and work it out. There was a rumour at the time 'Baby' was released that it was Michael Jackson speeded up! - the very last bit sometimes sounds like "don't ever wanna ask with you". or similar. Any other ideas folks?

I'm a new user by the way - Anyone out there to give a shoutout to a newbie?! :D

I think the web lyrics for Rubberbandman are wrong anyway, "Shoot bang no rhyme", I'm sure is "Should I know why" and "The filthy woman tell me what I shouldn't do" I think is "If you wanna tell me what I shouldn't do" or "Everybody tell me..."

As the Rubberbandman was a "Jibbering fool" maybe it's just nonsense in the spirit of Planet Dada.

Hi & welcome to the forum!

I think you are right that the lyrics on various sites are wrong especially the first line.
