Butcher Pete (Part 2) is a song in Fallout 4 that plays on Diamond City Radio. It was written and performed by Roy Brown.

BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from Butcher Pete (Part 1). To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

The song was recorded for the De Luxe record label in Dallas on September 20, 1949. Roy Brown's vocals were accompanied by Teddy Riley (trumpet), Johnny Fontenette (tenor saxophone), Edward Santineo (piano), Louis Sargent (guitar), Tommy Shelvin (bass), Frank Parker (drums), and Leroy Rankins (baritone saxophone).[1]

The ballad chronicles the exploits of "Butcher Pete," an exaggerated and lascivious character who makes sexual advances towards and romantically conquers every woman in town until he is eventually put in jail, whereupon he makes similar advances towards his cellmate.

Its lyrics also imply exaggerated sex and violence in stark contrast with the cheerful tone of the music, a dichotomy which is the hallmark of the Fallout series.

The tune is split between the two sides of the record, hence the phrase "Say, turn this record over, you ain't heard nothing yet!" at the end. The second part continues the story of Butcher Pete, including his attempted trip to China and what might have been his end in the electric chair.

Part 1 was featured in the soundtrack of both Fallout 3 and Fallout 4. Part 2 is only included in the soundtrack of Fallout 4.

LyricsEdit

Well, they let ole Pete out of the jail
He went back to his store
All the women who paid his bail
Were waitin' on Pete to chop some more

He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He just hacks, wacks, choppin' that meat

There's an old woman, who's ninety-two
Lives down the street
She said, one thing more I wanna do
Is find ole Pete and let him chop my meat

He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He just hacks, wacks, choppin' that meat

Pete went to church one Sunday night
He gave the preacher a fit
That crazy Pete started a fight
When he went hackin' on the pulpit

He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He just hacks, wacks, choppin' that meat

Well, they put him in jail again
They tried to give him life
Pete beat the case, he pleaded insane
They gave him back his same ole knife

He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He just hacks, wacks, choppin' that meat

Well, he got out of jail on Sunday night
Monday he tightened his grip
He started to China to see the sights
Went nuts again and chopped up the ship

He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He keeps hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He just hacks, wacks, choppin' that meat

Brought ole Pete back to town
To electrocute him there
But Pete was crazy like a clown
He chopped down that electric chair

He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
(He's a maniac!)
He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
(He don't do nothin' but hackin')
He's hackin' and wackin' and smackin'
He just hacks, wacks, choppin' that meat
