 "Pipe the shine" meant to beat the "shine" with a lead pipe,>>
Hi Arnold,
Talk about stretching a point to support an argument. There is absolutely no 
suggestion in the song or anywhere else that `Pipe the Shine` means 
attacking someone . Anymore than `Dig that cat` means attacking a feline 
with a shovel.
