"White Trash" is a remix of "Cake and Sodomy", a song featured on the 1994 release Portrait of an American Family. It is an acoustic re-recording of the track played by Tony Wiggins and featuring different verses from those found in "Cake and Sodomy". Because the song criticizes "southern, Christian white trash", Manson felt that "there was no better way to remix it than to have Wiggins strum and twang a redneck version".

On both the uncut and the album version, the racial comments are censored, despite them being satirical and not an attack on the black community.




    virgins sold in quantity, [african-american] heredity
    i'm playin' my guitar and i'm feelin' fine, 
    "why are all the [niggers] in the unemployment line?"
    white trash get down on your knees, 
    time for cake and sodomy
    teenage girl, a teenage queen, 
    'til she's on video, a porno queen
    she likes to give head and she likes it mean, 
    that's why she's my little queen
    white trash get down on your knees, 
    time for cake and sodomy
    white boy tryin' to get some behind, 
    "who says date rape isn't kind?"
    who's he gonna goad? Who's he gonna please? 
    it don't matter, as long as she's on her knees
    white trash get down on your knees, time for cake and sodomy
