I want love to
Roll me over slowly
Stick a knife inside me
And twist it all around

I want love to
Grab my fingers gently
Slam them in a doorway
Put my face into the ground

I want love to
Murder my own mother and
Take her off to somewhere
Like hell or up above

And I want love to
Change my friends to enemies
Change my friends to enemies
And show me how it's all my fault

Yeah, I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
Anymore

I want love to
Walk right up and bite me
Grab a hold of me and fight me
Leave me dying on the ground

And I want love to
Split my mouth wide open and
Cover up my ears
And never let me hear a sound

I want love to
Forget that you offended me
Or how you had defended me
When everybody tore me down

Yeah, I want love to
Change my friends to enemies
Change my friends to enemies
And show me how it's all my fault

Yeah, I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
Anymore

Definitely an acquired taste. Went for years just associating him with "Seven Nation Army" played at sporting events. Then started catching him here and there on various media and started to realized what this guy was doing was pretty interesting. The more I hear him, the more I grow to appreciate him.

I don't think the "genius" label gets misused here. I think a lot of people just can't get past his acerbic personality.

Others below have commentated on Jack White's voice as being... 'unique', 'borderline annoying', 'tonality and inflection' etc.

From a purist singing point of view his voice wanders all over place and that is not necessarily so bad - think Robert Smith of The Cure.

The trouble here is that JW does double tracked harmonies with his own voice and while that is common practice in the music industry production when you have a wandering voice then getting harmonies of yourself is a hit and miss affair.

Having had many years singing lessons as a boy I hear any imperfections in pitch and tone and unfortunately this song grates on my ears.
 
 
I concur that he can have a grating voice at times and as you point out, a "wandering voice" is not necessarily a bad thing - it's not a choir recital after all.  However, this song does not have double-tracked vocals from Jack White; that's Ruby Amanfu singing harmonies.  The vocals, keyboard, and guitar were apparently recorded "live" in a single take.

...he's pretty damn good on the gi-tar! 
Today, I read the lyrics while listening, and boy, pretty good song this one is....+1 on the strength of the lyrics...it's an 8 now....Long Live RP!!
Incredible virtuosity and versatility with "rough edge" always intact. Who among the "new breed" can compare?

VERY VERY good documentary! Worthy of viewing for sure{#Cheers}

 
building a truly wicked slide out of a piece of old lumber, whipping off a rip that page picks up in england. great opener. after that. he's trying to keep up with the big boys.

best taken with the raconteurs.  
The songwriting here is brilliant. There are other live versions of this song that I prefer. But Jack White is the real deal and then some.

Those who think he's over-rated need to watch the documentary, "It Might Get Loud".  He's a musical genius, along with Jimmy Page & The Edge.  And if you like those guys, "It Might Get Loud" is mandatory!

I'm hearing some borrowed phrases from Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man"... 
The greatest of his generation

Though I respect Jack White, his voice is unique borderline annoying.

 
As with almost any vocalist of global renoun, you have to listen past surface and hear the unique inflection that makes them popular. It's nice when God given tonality, voice coaching, regional dialectic and accent and personal soul (comprised of affect, attitude, emotion...) all come together in one, but the great thing about pop is its function of promoting the central spirit fire of the worthy so we can hear it even when the lovely decorations don't all fall together as we would wish.

Have heard that this documentary is very good, so now I gotta check it out. 

That synth piano intro had me guessing it was going to lead into Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" but I was sorely misled.

All RP posts can be divided into two types...people whining...and people whining about all the whining.

This song's raw whiney-ness just doesn't do it for me.
Possibly the best love song ever written.
Saw his Austin City Limits performance recently and it was VERY impressive.  He truly has a gift and passion for music that is not typical!
Props to Jack White for this brilliant song after all the barking about his yodeling I've done on RP. Quite likeable. {#Clap}

You don't know Jack.


This one's gone from 8 to 9 for me. I love his creativity.

It's Jack White.
This song reminds me of Frasier & Debolt, a very underappreciated duo from the early 70's.

Brilliant song from a great album.  Started at 8, now a 9, may make it to 10.

The word blunderbuss is also in a recent Arctic Monkey's song, I think.  It's a type of old gun.  I think they just like saying it.  Reminds me of wanderlust.  {#Think}

 
Or if taken at its parts, it could mean "accidental kiss." Tho' I kinda think Jack's acknowledging the soft touch of his people skills. Give him props for self-deprecating humor.
Now as soon as I hear those sparkling notes (Roland?) come out and dance across my desk, I RUN AND CRANK THIS BABY RIGHT ON UP AND THEN SOME!  Jack is back in Elephant mode, and I am digging it immensely...

Creepy? Really? Individualistic maybe, but if you find him 'creepy' then you would do well to avoid visiting where I live as he would blend into the background here.
Grow up people, or not. :)

No, the early "sister" thing was likely Jack shooting off at the mouth somewhere and it became part of the standard press for them for a while. As you can easily tell from this song and others, Jack says whatever he wants. I like the song and others I have heard from this CD. He is a pretty amazing though not congenial artist.

Keep Rocking it Bill, with no interruptions... haters will always hate.
I just want her to stop trying to sing with Jack. It's like a Yoko Ono duet. It's still an 8.

Yup - this song is killing me..I've only listened to this album 100 times since it came out. And now RP is playing it! 
hahhah - the album is KILLER!

I don't hate him, but I typically turn the station off when a JW song comes on.

Maybe it's that out of date goth thing he's got going on.
 
I feel the same way. I don't really like the casual violence in this particular song. Switching away, despite the clarinets.
yuck and more yuck. 
Love Jack.  Love White Stripes (Even Megs marginal drumming), His collaberations.

Maybe an acquired taste.  But, I love his variety. So will be getting Blunderbuss...

He rarely misses the sound that he is after..  Always impressed,
 and I hope that he never stops searching.
First I've heard anything from the new album. Liking it so far!
This is one of those times that I would swear Jack is the secret son of Robert Plant. Something about his voice and how he uses it.

The first part reminded me of the beginning of Son of a Preacher Man by Dusty Springfield.  Anyway, I really like this song so far.
Yeah, THAT'S what I'm talkin' bout!  Jack is BACK!

Jack rarely disappoints. Love the Hammond B3 in the background.
