"Piss Up a Rope" is a song by the band Ween in 1996 from the album 12 Golden Country Greats. It was released on 7" yellow vinyl single on Diesel Only Records.

History[edit]

When asked about the lyrics "You can wash my balls with a warm wet rag" and "On your knees, you big bootied bitch," Dean Ween stated that he wrote the song for his wife. The inspiration for the title came from his father: "[It is] a funny expression that I copped from my dad. When I was a kid, he used to say, 'Aw, go piss up a rope.' It was just nonsense. It was like, 'Aw, go shit in your hat' or whatever."[1]

In Popular Culture[edit]

  • The song is heard in the background in a scene in the cafe from a May 2008 episode of English soap EastEnders.[citation needed]
