    "Lumpy Gravy I" Lyrics

    Frank Zappa

    The way I see it, Barry, This should be a dynamite show.


    Surf Music
    Bit of nostalga for the old folks

    I'm advocating dark clothes
    If I'm not alone
    How long have I been asleep

    As long as I have
    Did you ever live in a drum?
    Well then you aren't me
    I only dreamed I lived in a drum
    Ever since it got dark
    Dreaming is hard
    Yea, but with nothing over your head?
    No just light over my head and underneath too
    I don't think I could take it without anything over my head
    M-M - ???
    Well why don't you go out and see what's out there?
    Well I don't know if that's what's out there.
    That's a thought, if you'd like
    Yes but still you can say darker and darker
    I don't know what the outside of this thing looks like at all
    I knew it's dark and murky
    How do you get your water so dark?

    Cause I'm paranoid
    I'm very paranoid and the water in my washing machine turns dark out
    of sympathy
    Out of sympathy?
    Um where can I get that?
    At your local drug store
    How much?
    It's from Kansas

    Bored out .90 over with 3 strong burt 97ths

    Car Dialogue
    Almost chinese huh yeah.
    Good bread, cause I was making um $2.71 an hour

    I keep switching girls all the time because if i'm able to find a girl with
    really a groovy car that I can build up, man, I'll go steady with her for
    awhile until I can build up her car and blow out the engine.

    I worked in a cheesy newspaper company for awhile but that was terrible,
    I wasn't making enough money to build anything
    Louie Louie
    And then I worked in a printing company and a couple of gas stations. Oh
    at the gas station where I was working my brother had just gotten married
    and uh, he bought a new car and his wife was having a kid and all this
    miserable stuff and he needed a job so I gave him a job at the gas station
    of which I was fired because, you know, he was going to work there.
    And he had his car on the rack and he was lubing it and changing tires
    and everything all the time. And so then he got fired because he was
    goofing off, man, and he just kept taking parts and working on his car
    day and night. So he lost that job and I went to work in another gas station.
    He took that one, you know, so he could feed the kids and that. Then
    I went to work in a aircraft company, and uh, I was building these planes.
    I worked on the XB-70, I was the last welder on there. Yea but, It was pretty
    good bread because I was making um, $2.71 an hour. I was making a
    hundred and a quarter a week, and uh, yea it was good enough money to
    be working on so I got an Oldsmobile, a groovy Olds. But I was going with
    this chick at the time. By the time I got the olds running decently, she went
    out and tore up the engine, and the trans and let her girlfriends get in there
    and booze it up and tare up the seats. They ripped the seats completely out.
    So uh, I got a '56 olds, which was this one chick I was going with, and uh
    we used to drive out all over the place and finally she got rid of that and uh,
    I got another pickup.
