mother: you can sing some of the songs, do you know any by heart?
brother: sing that one song you were singing about the little red box, sing that song

Quotes

Jack White:

    "That's me when I was six or seven, my older brother and mother were taping that. It was some sort of religious song. I didn't sing it right. It should have been, 'I wish I I had a little red box to put the devil in, I'd take him out and punch-punch-punch and put him back again."
