Facts:
  • The song was censored for using the word "hell" They did not realize that it was about cannibalism. (peterpuck9)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Trapped in a mine what had caved in
    And everyone knows the only one's left
    Was Joe and me and Tim

    When they broke through to pull us free
    The only one's left to tell the tale
    Was Joe and me

    Timothy, Timothy,
    Where on earth did you go?
    Timothy, Timothy
    God why don't I know?

    Hungry as hell, no food to eat
    And Joe said that he would sell his soul
    For just a piece of meat
    Water enough to drink for two
    And Joe said to me, I'll take a swig
    And then there's some for you

    Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
    Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?

    I must of blacked out just 'bout then
    'Cause the very next thing that I could see
    Was the light of the day again

    My stomach was full as it could be
    And nobody ever got around to finding Timothy

    Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
    Timothy, Timothy, God, why don't I know?

    Timothyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Oh
    Oh, Timothy
    Timothy (fade)

    The actual lyrics go like this:


    Trapped in a mine what had caved in
    And everyone knows the only one's left
    Was Joe and me and Tim

    When they broke through to pull us free
    The only one's left to tell the tale
    Was Joe and me

    Timothy, Timothy,
    Where on earth did you go?
    Timothy, Timothy
    God why don't I know?

    Hungry as hell, no food to eat
    And Joe said that he would sell his soul
    For just a piece of meat
    Water enough to drink for two
    And Joe said to me, I'll take a swig
    And then there's some for you

    Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
    Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?

    I must of blacked out just 'bout then
    Cause the very next thing that I could see
    Was the light of the day again

    My stomach was full as it could be
    And nobody ever got around to finding Timothy

    Timothy, Timothy, where on earth did you go?
    Timothy, Timothy, God why don't I know?

    Timothyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Oh
    Oh Timothy
    Timothy (fade)
