The lyrics to Deadhead are as follows;

Deadhead (D. Newman)

I'm a Deadhead and my dog's name's Jed,
I'm a Deadhead and my dog's name is Jed.

My dog's on a rope and I don't use soap,
My dog's on a rope and I don't use no soap.

I got dreads and Guatamalan threads,
I got dreads and Guata-malan threads.

I come from Bergen County New Jersey,
Head west and sleep in a doorway on Haight Street.

I save all the pennies I can find,
Arrange 'em on the sidewalk in the shape of a peace sign.

I sell crystals and beaded rocks,
Jed here beside me in a cardboard box.

'Cuz I'm a Deadhead and my dog's name's Jed,
I'm a Deadhead and my dog's name is Jed.

I stay at yer parents' house for free,
Bring fifteen friends, hope ya got cable TV.

Daddy bought me a Saab and a gold card, too,
When the Saab broke down, Daddy bought me a Su-ba-ru.

'Cuz Dad, money means nuthin', give me yours,
Money means nuthin', give me all of yours.

I sell cold beers in the parking lot,
My inventory confiscated by the cops.

I got beaten up by five skinheads,
They blacked my eye and they kicked my dog named Jed.
