Frank Zappa
    #3544698 - 12/26/04 06:45 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)


Dreamed I was an eskimo
Frozen wind began to blow
Under my boots and around my toes
The frost that bit the ground below
It was a hundred degrees below zero...

And my mama cried
And my mama cried
Nanook, a-no-no
Nanook, a-no-no
Don?t be a naughty eskimo
Save your money, don?t go to the show

Well I turned around and I said oh, oh oh
Well I turned around and I said oh, oh oh
Well I turned around and I said ho, ho
And the northern lights commenced to glow
And she said, with a tear in her eye
Watch out where the huskies go, and don?t you eat that yellow snow
Watch out where the huskies go, and don?t you eat that yellow snow


(well, right about that time people
A fur-trapper (who was strictly from commercial)
Had the unmitigated audacity to jump up from behind my igloo (peekaboo whoo woo)
And he started into whippin? on my favorite baby seal
With a lead-filled snowshoe)

He went right upside the head of my favorite baby seal
He went whap with a lead-filled snowshoe, and
He hit him on the nose and hit him on the fin, and he
That got me just about as evil as an eskimo boy can be. so I bent down
And I reached down, and I scooped down and I gathered up a generous
Mitten-ful of the deadly yellow snow

The deadly yellow snow, from right there where the huskies go!

Whereupon I proceeded to take that mittenful of the deadly yellow snow
Crystals and rub it all into his beady little eyes with a vigorous
Circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
To take the place of the mudshark in your mythology
Here it goes,the circular motion, now rub it!


And then
In a fit of anger
I POUNCED

And I POUNCED again

GREAT GOOGLEY MOOGLEY!

I jumped up and down on the chest of him

I injured
The fur trapper

Well he was very upset, as you can understand
And rightly so, because the
Deadly yellow snow crystals had
Deprived him of his
Sight

And he stood up, and he looked around, and he said

I can?t see
I can?t see
Oh, woe is me
I can?t see

Well.....you know
I can?t see
Nothin?

He took a dog-doo snow cone and stuffed it in my right eye
He took a dog-doo snow cone and stuffed it in my other eye
And the husky wee-wee
I mean the doggie wee-wee
Has blinded me
And I can?t see
Temporarily

Well, the fur-trapper stood there, with his arms outstretched across the
Frozen white wasteland, trying to figure out what he was going to do about
His deflicted eyes. and it was at that precise moment that he remembered
And ancient eskimo legend, wherein it is written (on whatever it is that
They write it on up there) that if anything bad ever happens to your eyes
As the result of some sort of conflict with anyone named
Nanook,
The only way you can get it fixed up is to go

Trudging across the tundra
Mile after mile
Trudging across the tundra

Right down to the parish of st. alphonzo

Frank Zappa - Trouble Every Day Lyrics

Well Im about to get up sick
From watchin my t.v.
Been checkin out the news
Until my eyeballs fail to see
I mean to say that every day
Is just another rotten mess
And when its gonna change, my friend
Is anybodys guess
So Im watching and Im waiting
Hopin? for the best
Even think I go to praying
Every time I hear them sayin?
That theres no way to delay
That trouble comin everyday
No way to delay
That trouble comin every day

Wednesday I watched the riot
Ive seen the cops out on the street
Watch them throwing rocks and stuff and choking in the heat
Listen to reports
About the whiskey passin round
Seen the smoke and fire
And the market burnin down
Watched while everybody on his street would take a turn
They stomp and smash and bash and crash and slash and bust n
burn
And Im watching and Im waitin hopin for the best
Even think I go to prayin
Every time I hear em sayin
That theres no way to delay
That trouble comin every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin everyday

You can cool it
You can heat it
Cause baby I dont need it
Take your t.v. tube and eat it
And all that phony stuff on sports
And all those unconfirmed reports
You know I watch that rotten box
Until my head begin to hurt
From checkin out the way
The newsmen say they get the dirt
Before the guys on channel so and so
And further they assert
That any show they litter up
They bring you news if it comes up
They say that if the place blows up
They will be the first to tell
Cause the boys they got downtown
Working hard and doin swell
And if anybody gets the news
Before it hits the streets
They say that no one blams it faster
Their coverage cant be beat
And if another woman driver
Gets machine gunned from her seat
Theyll send some joker with a brownie
And youll see it all complete

So Im watching and Im waiting
Hopin for the best
Even think I go to praying
Every time I hear them saying
That theres no way to delay
That trouble comin everyday
No way to delay
That trouble comin every day

Well Ive seen the fires burnin
And the local people turnin
All the merchants and the shops
Who use to sell their brooms and mops
And every other household item
Watch the mob just turn and bite em
And they say it serve them right
Because a few of them are white
And its the same across the nation
Black and white discrimination
Yell and you can understand me
And all that other crap they hand me
In the papers and t.v.
And all that mass stupidity
That seems to grow more everyday
These time of year some asshole say
He wants to go and do you in
Cause the color of your skin
Just don?t appeal to him
No matter if its black or white
Because he?s out for blood tonight

yeah, "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow" is probably his most overrated song that is decidedly pretty mediocre.

<3 Zappa btw

edit: fuck typos

Billy the Mountain is one my favs, it is long and informative.
"Don't fuck with mountains" heheheh
A good record exists called "ZAPPED" it is a compilation of artists that were friends with or influenced/produced by Zappa (Captain Beefheart, Alice Cooper, Wild man Fischer) Good stuff.

I might be movin' to Montana soon
Just to raise me up a crop of
Dental Floss

Raisin' it up
Waxen it down
In a little white box
I can sell uptown

By myself I wouldn't
Have no boss,
But I'd be raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss

Raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss

Well I just might grow me some bees
But I'd leave the sweet stuff
For somebody else...but then, on the other hand I'd

Keep the wax
N' melt it down
Pluck some Floss
N' swish it aroun'

I'd have me a crop
An' it'd be on top (that's why I'M movin' to Montana)

Movin' to Montana soon
Gonna be a Dental Floss tycoon (yes I am)
Movin' to Montana soon
Gonna be a mennil-toss flykune

I'm pluckin' the ol'
Dennil Floss
That's growin' on the prairie
Pluckin' the floss!
I plucked all day an' all nite an' all
Afternoon...

I'm ridin' a small tiny hoss
(His name is MIGHTY LITTLE)
He's a good hoss
Even though
He's a bit dinky to strap a big saddle or
Blanket on anyway
He's a bit dinky to strap a big saddle or
Blanket on anyway
Any way

I'm pluckin' the ol'
Dennil Floss
Even if you think it is a little silly, folks
I don't care if you think it's silly, folks
I don't care if you think it's silly, folks

I'm gonna find me a horse
Just about this big
An' ride him all along the border line

With a
Pair of heavy-duty
Zircon-encrusted tweezers in my hand
Every other wrangler would say
I was mighty grand

By myself I wouldn't
Have no boss
But I'd be raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss

Raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss
Raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss

Well I might
Ride along the border
With my tweezers gleamin'
In the moon-lighty night

And then I'd
Get a cuppa cawfee
N' give my foot a push...
Just me 'n the pymgy pony
Over the Dennil Floss Bush

N' then I might just
Jumb back on
An' ride
Like a cowboy
Into the dawn to Montana

Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)
Movin' to Montana soon
(Yippy-Ty-O-Ty-Ay)

My first exposure to Zappa was the movie '200 Motels'.  I still look for it any time I go into a store.  I'd love to buy a copy (that and 'The Making of 200 Motels', both great to watch).

My brother sent a letter to Zappa in about '90 or '91.  It was a letter about how distraught my brother was at the time (he was in a Zappa phase so he decided to write Zappa about his problems... :confused:).  Anyway, he got back an 8X10 glossy of Zappa which had written across it with a sharpie...

Dear Matt,
Relax!
Frank Zappa
