a parody of "Born To Be Wild" by Steppenwolf
The news that Edwards' campaign was paying for his $400 haircuts gave this a good run on the airwaves until Edwards dropped out of the race; then it was miraculously resuscitated when he "popped up" (so to speak) as the father of a child by an affair.

Get your motor running.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Rick

The misheard lyric is logical, because if you run out of the house to head out on the highway, you left so fast you left the kitchen water running.

"Monster" Length: 9:15
Known as "Monster/Suicide/America", this song is a psychedelic point-of-view about America. It still speaks out today!

Onomatopoeia in Lyrics:

"Earsplittenloudenboomer"
The Lyrics:
"Today, I haf goot nus, unt I have bat nus. (blah-blah-blah in Greman). Earsplitenloudenboomer...
Why:
Not really a "lyric", as the song is basically an instrumental. It opens with a recitation that is in laughable German, and morphs into some warped version of Herb Alpert. The only indication of the songs title comes at the end, when a "sonic boom" signals the finish of the cut.
