The Lyrics

'Ripple' is the most beautiful song ever, so I hate to do this...but the story must be told.
If my face did glow with the grease of acne
And my cheeks were marred with zits unpopped
Could you see my soul though all the bumpy
Oily swells of skin that are up on top?

Call me pizza face, with extra crisco
Perhaps some names I've never heard
I don't know, don't really care
Nothing can add to my despair

Pimple on my nostril
Won't allow my head to sneeze,
Nor nose to blow

Reach out your hand, if your eyes are blinded
If your hands can feel, then I lose again
Let it be known, this is a body
That's not been touched by hands of women

There is a cure; no simple face wash
Prescribed by Doc, that can fix the blight
And if it works, then I'm in buisiness
This face is for your lips alone

Pimple on my body
They are all over my face
And parts unknown

No more blues! My face is clearing
But still I'm sitting all alone
Under it all, I'm just plain ugly
If I'd known it then, I'd have just stayed home

La da da da, la da da da da...

This a great job here, Charlie...and yes, "Ripple" is a wonderful song. I liked all the stuff on "American Beauty" and "Workingman's Dead"...superb albums! the rest of their catalogue is pretty spotty, though...too many over-cooked jams that noodle off into nothingness...

I'm no deadhead: I love American Beauty, and Workingman's Dead is pretty good too...I just lose patience with some of the live albums. I guess you had to have been there...

Charlie, I think you "had to have been" and also had to "have been schwacked out of your mind" to think their other stuff was much good. But we pretty much agree on their good stuff, don't we?
Charlie Decker - October 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah, we seem to agree a lot.

DKTOS but I did a parody about zits, too. So popped up to have a gander. He pecked me. Nice work!

Charlie, GREAT lyrics dude! Hey, would you mind if I recorded that one? I would give you full credit with writing the lyrics. The only tough thing would be how to record it without cracking up. Let me know at incubus442442 at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

Bummer, I can't find a karaoke version of this song. All I can find is a crappy midi version of the song which sounds more like a calypso version of it. And, as far as I have seen, there isn't any software that can TOTALLY get rid of a vocal track.
