When I was a young boy,
My mama said to me
Your daddy's leavin' home today,
I think he's gone to stay.
We packed up all our bags
And drove out to Winnipeg.
When we got to Winnipeg
I checked in to school.
I wore white bucks on my feet,
When I learned the golden rule.
The punches came fast and hard
Lying on my back
in the school yard.
Don't be denied, don't be denied.
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

When I was young and they packed me off to school
And taught me how not to play the game
I didn't mind if they groomed me for success
Or if they said that I was just a fool
So I left there in the morning
With their God tucked underneath my arm
Their half-assed smiles and the book of rules
Dodging lions and a-wasting time
In memory of ChiefScott

When I was a young boy
Said put away those young boy ways
Now that I'm gettin' older, so much older
I long for those young boy days

When I was a young boy
Advice I would scorn
Now I'm gettin' a little older
I know I got a lot to learn
Yesterday's illusions are tomorrow's smiles
I'll look back and laugh
Baby, sometimes, in a while
And it always seems the same
And who knows what to blame
If I knew then what I know now
The mistakes I wouldn't have made...
But you can't get a sneak preview
Over what you're gonna go through
And you have to rely on your body and mind
To see the light from shade
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Dogs begin to bark now and the hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark now and the hounds begin to howl
Watch out stray cat people the little red rooster is on the prowl
If you see the little red rooster, won't you please drive him home
If you see my little red rooster, won't you please drive him home
Been no peace in the barnyard people, since the little red rooster's been gone
Dodging lions and a-wasting time
In memory of ChiefScott

Down the street the dogs are barkin'
And the day is a-gettin' dark
As the night comes in a-falling
The dogs will lose their bark
And the silent night will shatter
From the sounds inside my mind
Yes I’m one too many mornings
And a thousand miles behind
From the crossroads of my doorstep
My eyes start to fade
And I turn my head back to the room
Where my love and I have laid
And I gaze back to the street
The sidewalk and the sign
And I’m one too many mornings
And a thousand miles behind
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

I ain't superstitious
Black cat crossed my trail
I ain't superstitious
But a black cat crossed my trail
Bad luck ain't got me so far
And I won't let it stop me now
The dogs begin to bark
All over my neighborhood and that ain't all
Dogs begin to bark
All over my neighborhood (mm, mm)
This is a mean old world to live in
And I can't face it all by myself
Dodging lions and a-wasting time

Very superstitious
Writing's on the wall
Very superstitious
Ladder's about to fall
Thirteen month old baby
Broke the looking glass
Seven years of bad luck
The good things in your past
When you believe in things
That you don't understand
Then you suffer
Superstition ain't the way
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Hard luck and trouble is my only friend
I've been on my own ever since I was ten
Born under a bad sign
Been down since I begin to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck
You know I wouldn't have no luck at all

Looky here
Sunshine coming over the hills
Through my window pane
Sunshine coming over the hills
Might as well be pain
Got the black cat moan
Got the black cat moan 'cause I wanna go home
Got the black cat moan
Laying by the side of the road
With the diesels flying by
Looks like my head is gonna roll
Don't know the reasons why
Got the black cat moan
Got the black cat moan 'cause I wanna go home
Got the black cat moan
Going back to Memphis
To find my sugaree
Going back to Memphis
'Cause that's where I want to be
Got the black cat moan
Got the black cat moan
Got the black cat moan I wanna go home
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /

See here how everything lead up to this day
And it's just like any other day that's ever been
Sun going up and then the sun going down
Shine through my window and my friends they come around
Come around, come around
Dodging lions and a-wasting time
In memory of ChiefScott

I know nothing stays the same
But if you're willing to play the game
It's coming around again
So don't mind if I fall apart
There's more room in a broken heart
You pay the grocer
You fix the toaster
You kiss the host Good-bye
Then you break a window
Burn the Souffle
Scream a lullaby
I know nothing stays the same
But if you're willing to play the game
It's coming around again
So don't mind if I fall apart
There's more room in a broken heart
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

River gonna take me
Sing me sweet and sleepy
Sing me sweet and sleepy
All the way back back home
It's a far gone lullaby
Sung many years ago
Mama, mama, many worlds I've come
Since I first left home
Dodging lions and a-wasting time
In memory of ChiefScott

Rock-a-bye my baby
Somewhere there may be
A land that's free for you and me
And a Russian lullaby

(Do it again now)

Mama stroked his dinger
Daddy got a stinky finger
In those days of long ago
Later in the evening
She'd complain
They'd refrain
He'd go home and hone his bone
A tragic case maybe
But also true
I'm sure you know
But that's the way it goes sometimes
You just might find yourself in the clutches of some
Wild Love

^ funny ^

Is there anything a man don't stand to lose
When he lets a woman hold him in her hands?
He just might find himself out there on horseback in the dark
Just ridin' and runnin' across those desert sands

Zappa on romantic love

Woman, oh woman pretend you love me
Like you did back then
Please, baby, please
Fool me again
Baby, I've been cryin'
'Cause lord knows I feel like dyin'
Ever since you went and walked right
Out of my life, girl that wasn't nice
So I've been here in this bar room
Drownin' memories from way back when
So tonight, oh, just tonight
Fool me again
Inspiration move me brightly / Light my heart with sense and color /
Hold away despair / More than this I will not ask / Faced with mysteries dark and vast.............

Ooh now my body is starting to quiver
And the palms of my hands getting wet, oh
I got no reason to doubt you baby
It's all a terrible mess
And I'll run in the rain till I'm breathless
When I'm breathless I'll run 'til I drop, hey!
And the thoughts of a fool’s kind of careless
I'm just a fool waiting on the wrong block, oh yeah
Dodging lions and a-wasting time
In memory of ChiefScott

Tooth for tooth, eye for an eye
Sell your soul just to buy, buy, buy
Beggin' for a dollar, stealin' a dime
Come on, can't you see that I—

I am stranded, caught in the crossfire
I am stranded, caught in the crossfire
