"Beheaded" is the sixth track on The Offspring's 1989 debut album, The Offspring. Ten years later, the song was recorded again as "Beheaded '99" for the soundtrack of the movie Idle Hands, which features a cameo by The Offspring and where Dexter Holland plays himself. "Beheaded" is thus far the only known Offspring song that was co-written by original drummer James Lilja, who was part of the band until 1987 where he was replaced by Ron Welty, who performs on both "Beheaded '99" and the album version of this song.

Lyrics

Mommy doesn't have her head anymore
Keep it underneath my bed, on the floor
Well, that's all right, man, that's okay
She never really used her head, anyway

Daddy called me a silly bore
Bet he won't say that anymore
Because the way his body's severed in two
His vocal chords are gonna be hard to use

Beheaded, watch you spurt like a garden hose
Beheaded, bloody mess all over my clothes

Watch my girlfriend come to the door
Chop off her head, she falls to the floor
Watching my baby's jugular flow
Really makes my motor go

Wrap a towel around the bloody stump
Take my baby's body to the city dump
Then wipe the mess off the bloody axe
Scoop all the heads in my burlap sack

Beheaded, watch you spurt like garden hose
Beheaded, bloody mess all over my clothes

All my collection
Adorns my room on bamboo poles
Used to be a little but a little got more and more
Now, I'm craving yours

Night brings bad dreams
Bad dreams and guillotines
Night brings bad dreams
Bad dreams and guillotines

Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head
Off with her head

Find another victim for my machine
Put him in a homemade guillotine
Blade falls, man, I'm gonna need a casket
Watch the head plop in a wicker basket

Leave the house at a quarter to four
Come back with sixteen or more
'Cause the more I want, the more I see
I got a funny feeling coming over me

Beheaded, watch you spurt like a garden hose
Beheaded, bloody mess all over my clothes
