A little gem we've been saving for just the right moment. Recorded, as always, in our little garage in Worcester, MA and dedicated to our good friend and #2 fan Crockett.

lyrics

Lyrics:

When rabid rats are on the floor,
And you can’t run, they’ve locked the door.
You do the rat stomp!
RAT STOMP!

When you’re sittin’ with your date,
And the rug begins to quake,
You do the rat stomp.
RAT STOMP!

When your garbage ain’t enough,
And your flesh they come to munch,
You do the rat stomp.
RAT STOMP!

When vermin dress up in your clothes,
And follow everywhere you go,
You do the rat stomp.
RAT STOMP!

When they’re even livin’ in your car,
You know you ain’t gonna get very far,
Unless you do the…
RAT STOMP! RAT STOMP!
RAT STOMP! RAT STOMP!
RAT STOMP! RAT STOMP!


When you’re lying in your bed,
And their eyes are glowing red,
You do the rat stomp!
RAT STOMP!

When you’re holed up in the dark,
Better look for something sharp,
And do the rat stomp!
RAT STOMP!

When you try to use the phone,
But you cannot hear the tone,
You do the rat stomp!
RAT STOMP!


When you’re twitching and you’re thin,
You’ve got the rats under you’re skin,
Go do the rat stomp!
RAT STOMP!

We do the rat stomp ev-ery day,
You gotta keep them rats away,
And so you do the…
RAT STOMP! RAT STOMP!
RAT STOMP! RAT STOMP!
RAT STOMP! RAT STOMP!
Stomp ‘em boys!

We do the…
Rat stomp, rat stomp,
Rat Stomp, rat stomp,
Rat stomp,
And that’s the way it goes!

The Jitters Worcester, Massachusetts

Hailing from Worcester MA; stitched together from fragments of sloppy bayou blues, sleazy rockabilly,fuzzed-out garage, and the creeping, half-dead remnants of nightmares; the musical talents of Ryan Hatt and Nik McCarter are tied to a slab and thrust into the heart of an electrical storm to breath again as The Jitters! ... more
