This Bar Goes Into a Guy

This bar goes into a guy
It gets shoved through his right eye
He was once a working slob
Now he’s just a shish kebab

This bar goes into a guy
’Neath a bright blue autumn sky
He was walking down the street
Off to buy some luncheon meat

This bar goes into a guy
No one sees the other guy
With the long thin gray steel bar
The same color as my car

This bar goes into a guy
The blood drips onto his tie
His life is torn asunder
Now he’s half Stevie Wonder

This bar goes into a guy
It gets shoved through his right eye
