In a video uploaded to YouTube, a Marine, who clearly regards danger as a friend, grabs a knife and starts to sing “The Knife Game Song,” an original by Rusty Cage.
As the song’s name indicates, you stab the spaces between your fingers as you sing.
Don’t try this at home.
These are the words the Marine sings:
There’s an old tradition a game we all can play it starts by getting liquored up and sharpening your blade
You take a shot of whiskey and grab your knife and pray and you spread apart your fingers and this is what you say!
Oh I have all my fingers the knife goes chop chop chop and if I miss the spaces between my finger the blood will soon come out
But all the same I play the game cause that’s what it’s all about
No you can’t use a pencil you can’t use a pen the only way to is with a knife when danger is your friend
Some may call it stupid some may call it dumb
But all the same we play the game because it’s so damn fun
Oh I have all my fingers and the knife goes chop chop chop and if I miss the spaces between my fingers the blood will soon come out because that’s what it’s all about
Oh chop chop chop chop chop chop I’m picking up the speed and if you hit one of your fingers your hand will start to bleed
And he pulls it off flawlessly. All fingers remain attached.
Some have said this video explains why Marines can’t have nice things. Do you agree?
