This has been bugging me for ages, but during the bridge between verse 2 and three, Dexter says 4 words. Originally, I thought they were '1,2,3,4', then I thought they 'were won't you be there', but these both seem to be wrong. I have searched the net for the lyrics but everywhere (even on this site) those four words are nowhere to be found. Can anyone help me please cos it's driving me mad!

Live at Woodstock, it sounds like "one/hup, two, three, proud/prown" (WTF?).

I always thought it was "bluh, bloo, blee, bleh". Y'know, just random gibberish.

I think that part of the lyrics aren't supposed to make sense... maybe he's just spitting out random words.

sound to me like
'1, 2, 3, 4' BUT very slured as if he isnt pronouncing it correctly and each number is more slured then the previous so four is very distorted.

like ' On.. Two, Thre.. DFur'

bu t make sence to be numbers to me or at least numbers with a yer or a bam at the end

ONE TO THREE GO! it sounds funny because he sings it high pitched and he was kinda slurring those words on purpose. just to drive you insane.
