Sixteen Saltines lyrics by Jack White

She's got stickers on her locker
The boy's number's there in magic marker
I'm hungry and the hunger will linger
I eat sixteen saltine crackers then I lick my fingers

Well every morning I deliver the news
Black hat, white shoes, and I'm red all over
She's got a big mailbox that she puts out front
Garbage in garbage out she's getting what she wants

Who's jealous, who's jealous, who's jealous, who's jealous of who?
If I get busy, then I couldn't care less what you do
But when I'm by myself I think of nothing else
Than if a boy just might be getting through and touching you

Spike heels make a hole in a lifeboat
Jumping away when I'm talking but laughing as we flow
I hear a whistle; that's how I know she's home
Lipstick, eyelash, broke near a broken home

Force-fed false meds till I dropped dead
You can't defeat her when you meet her you'll get what I said

Check out the lyrics to Hypothetical Kiss from Jack's solo album. If you recall that Jack White did a cover of U2's Love is Blindness as a B-side - we reckon he might be a fan if U2's new song lyrics to these songs The ShowmanSummer of Love and the single The Blackout


  1. I think maybe it could also be
    "She doesn't know, but when she's gone I sit up and drink a few
    I'm sure she's drinkin' too, but wonderin' what for and who"

  2. . . . When she's gone I sit and drink up her perfume, I'm sure she's drinking too.

  3. "pink mailbox"...
    "Spike heels make a hole in a life boat
    difting away when I'm talking and laughing as we float"
    I hear her whistle, that's how I know she's home,
    Lipstick, eyelash, broke mirror,broken home"
    "Force fed forced meds till I drop dead,
    You can't defeat her, when you meet her you'll get what I said
    The Lord knows there's a method to her madness,but the Lord's joke is a boat in a sea of sadness"
    "She doesn't know but when she's gone I sit and drink her perfume, and I'm sure she's drinking too, but why, where and what for and who?"
    "And I'm solo rowing on one side of the boat, looking up, throwing up, a lifesaver down my throat"
