  1. jack white'ın klavye ve gitar sololarıyla süslenmiş güzel white stripes şarkısı. aynı zamanda albüme de ismini vermiştir, grubun en iyi şarkılarından birisi olduğu söylenebilir.

    icky thump
    who'da thunk?
    sittin' drunk on a wagon to mexico.

    ahh well
    what a chump
    well my head got a bump
    when i hit it on the radio.

    redhead senorita
    looking dead
    came and said
    "need a bed?"
    en español.

    i said
    "gimme a drink a water
    i'm gonna 'sing around the collar
    and i don't need a microphone."

    icky thump
    with a lump in my throat
    grabbed my coat
    and now it's reckon
    i was ready to go!

    and i swear
    besides the head
    she had one white eye,
    one blank stare
    lookin' up
    lyin' there.

    on the stand
    near her hand
    was a candy cane
    black rum, sugar cane,
    dry ice (and) something strange.

    la la la la la la la
    la la la la la la la

    white americans, what?
    nothing better to do?
    why don't you kick yourself out
    you're an immigrant too.

    who's using who? what should we do?
    well, you can't be a pimp
    and a prostitute too.

    icky thump
    handcuffed to a bunk
    robbed blind
    looked around
    and there was nobody else.

    left alone
    i hit myself with a stone
    went home and learned how
    to clean up after myself.
