The White Stripes


"The Big Three" ("Le grandi tre") sono le maggiori industrie automobilistiche negli anni cinquanta e '60: Ford, Chrysler e General Motors.

Jack White ha dichiarato in alcune interviste che non crede che la musica possa essere un mezzo per messaggi politici, poi però ha scritto Icky Thump.

Nelle versioni dal vivo più recenti i White Stripes hanno cambiato alcune parole in riferimento alla guerra in Iraq: "Bush's hands are red, and I found out your baby is dead."
The big three killed my baby
no money in my hand again
the big three killed my baby
nobody's coming home again

Their ideas made me want to spit
a hundred dollars goes down the pit
30,000 wheels are rollin'
and my stick shift hands are swollen
everything involved is shady
the big three killed my baby

The big three killed my baby
no money in my hand again
the big three killed my baby
nobody's coming home again

Why don't you take the day off and try to repair
a billion others don't seem to care
better ideas are stuck in the mud
the motors runnin' on truckers' blood
don't let them tell you the future's electric
cause gasoline's not measured in metric
30,000 wheels are spinnin'
and oil company faces are grinnin'
now my hands are turnin' red
and i found out my baby is dead

The big three killed my baby
no money in my hand again
the big three killed my baby
nobody's coming home again

Well I've said it now, nothing's changed
people are burnin for pocket change
and creative minds are lazy
and the big three killed my baby

And my baby's my common sense
so don't feed me planned obsolescence
yeah my baby's my common sense
so don't feed me planned obsolescence
I'm about to have another blowout
I'm about to have another blowout
