The Lyrics

I'm not a full blown Zappatista. I'm sort of a jack Zappist; a half Zappist. I'm basically a huge fan of one album, "Overnight Sensation" and a few other assorted songs, like "Cosmik Debris" .... Second stance referres to an infamous radio confrontation between Frank Zappa and Joe Pyne, a WWII Gen shock jock
It seems inventive what I gotta know
Huskies went there, dont you eat that snow
I'm a dent floss tycoon that can pluck all day
With an aura of angora, Suzie, kiss away

(Because I'm Zappa) Zap along if you feel like a Zomb without a woof
(Because I'm Zappa) Zap along if you feel that Zappa can be uncouth
(Because I'm Zappa) Zap along if you know what "Apostrophe" mean to you
(Because I'm Zappa) Zap along if you feel like zapping the princess Jew

Here comes Joe Pyne talking sh*t and trash .... (Yeah)
Dont suppose my hair or your leg I'll bash* ..... (Yeah)
I should probably warn you I've a sharp mind
Dont suppress my views, we'll be just fine

(Because I'm Zappa) Zappa 'long if you feel like Bobby Brown is a poof
(Because I'm Zappa) Zappa 'long if you feel like Valley girls need a spoof
(Because I'm Zappa) Zappa 'long if know Montana's where you're moving soon
(Because I'm Zappa) Clap along if you feel like Zapp's what you wanna do

(Zappa, Zappa, Zappa, Zappa)
He's going down; that numbnut
(Zappa, Zappa, Zappa, Zappa)
Bobby Brown, he loved a cruel dyke
(Zappa, Zappa, Zappa, Zappa)
She'll bring him down; that numbnut
(Zappa, Zappa, Zappa, Zappa)
Bobby Brown; I said

(Because it's Zappa) Zappa long if you feel like a dong without a spew
(Because it's Zappa) Zappa long if you feel like Bobby Brown learned the truth
(Because it's Zappa) Zappa long if you know that disco makes dancing fools
(Because it's Zappa) Zappa long if feel like Yerbouti is Shaykhing you

(Because he's Zappa) Hum along if you feel like "Cootie" line was uncouth
(Because he's Zappa) Hum along if you squeal like Zappa made Dinah do
(Because he's Zappa) Hum along if you go buns up like the groupies do
(Because he's Zappa) Hum along if you feel like that's what he made you do

(Zappa, Zappa, Zappa, Zappa)
(Cant shut me down; cain't no one
(Zappa, Zappa, Zappa, Zappa)
Can put me down; not even Joe Pyne
(Zappa, Zappa, Zappa, Zappa)
Can put me down, cain't no one
(Zappa, Zappa, Zappa, Zappa)
Put me down, I said

(Because I'm Zappa) Zappa long if you feel like your foot is a Zombie hoof
(Because I'm Zappa) Zappa long if you feel like nasty little Princess Jew
(Because I'm Zappa) Zappa long if you know which poncho is real for you
(Because I'm Zappa) Zappa long if you feel like that's what the Huskies do

(Because it's Zappa) Zap along if you feel your momma made the poodle chew
(Because it's Zappa) Zap along if you feel like a nasty little Princess Jew
(Because it's Zappa) Zap along if you know what Zappiness is to you
(Because it's Zappa) Zap along if you feel like that's what you wanna do



*The legendary confrontation supposedly went like this. Joe Pyne, who lost a leg in WWII, looked at Zappa's hair and said "I suppose your long hair makes you a girl." To which Zappa responded "I suppose you wooden leg makes you a table."

CML, just wanted you to know I usually rate you 555 on most of your stuff. I don't comment though unless I feel I have something to add. Your topics are usually very different from what I write about ;-)

Zappa is not mainstream even among boomers, Rob, mostly because Zappa made no attempt to make (most of) his music accessible to anyone. But there is one album called "Overnight Sensation" that was a big hit with everybody in college in the mid-Seventies. That's because he actually made an effort to churn out some conventional tunes. About half the references are to "Overnight Sensation" One whole stanza is devoted to an infamous, misogynous tune called "Dynamo Hum", which is a total guilty pleasure for a lot of women my age

CML, nicely done parody! I am primarily a bigger fan of 60s Mothers works than other eras, but FZ has a lot of stuff to chew on anyway--I grokked most of the references. I would also like to mention that I had no idea that you were a lady, and it's refreshing to know FZ has at least one semi-fan of your gender (and I don't count the groupies and other hangers-on from those times as fans ;))

OOOOPS!, should have said woman who are the same age as me. (LOL!! LOL!!) No AG, I really, really really am a guy (Hey, how those f#cking Bears, are they gonna get their sh&*t together soon , or WHAT!) but I do have an older sister who just goes to pieces whenever she hears "Dynamo Hum" so that's how I know it's a guilty pleasure for a certain gender of a certain age.

Eleven years ago, my prostate was taken out due to prostate cancer, and because there was a positive surgical margin, I've had to take steps to control testosterone. For example I'll drink soy protein shakes after workouts to inhibit testosterone spikes ...... At times, I get to wondering about the effects. For example, the other day I was looking at some porn pics of a couple doing it in the kitchen and my first reaction was "Ugh, will you look at those tacky cabinets!"
