Crumb Begging Baghead

Band songlist

Info

Crumb Begging Baghead is a Babyshambles track that features on their second album, Shotter's Nation. The writing credit for the track goes to Doherty and Mik Whitnall.

Crumb Begging Baghead was first recorded by Doherty and Whitnall for their Stookie + Jim Bumfest Demos, in November 2006, and before this, the track featured on many live bootlegs. On bootlegged versions, Crumb Begging Baghead was often wrongly tagged as "Zombie", due to the opening lyrics; "Donít take me for a zombie". A video of Mik and Peter playing the song acoustically can be found on YouTube.

Lyrics

Don't take me for a sunbeam
Don't take me for a sunbeam, a sunbeam, a sunbeam
It's just another faction of
Like another fraction of
Another taxer of your life

Don't take me for a sunbean
Don't take me for a sunbeam, a sunbeam, a sunbeam
I'm a crumb beggin' baghead baby yeah
I'm a crumb beggin' baghead baby yeah
Bet you say that to all of the girls

And all the long lost wars
Any causes worth dying for
What passing bells for those die like cattle again
and again and again

Don't take me for a sunbeam
Don't take me for a sunbeam, a sunbeam, a sunbeam
I'm a crumb beggin' baghead baby yeah
Bet you say that to all of the girls

If you ever smile in the street of crocodiles
I doub you'll ever smile again

Ah don't...Yeah
