I saw Arlo Guthrie live in 1994 - vaguely knew about him, but I had only heard Alice's Restaurant.

Anyway, he does this long speil about Canadians, mericans, and how the metric system was trying to take over America (all tounge-in-cheek)

Inch by Inch, row by row
gonna make this garden grow
gonna mulch it deep and low
gonna make it fertile ground

Inch by Inch, row by row
please bless these seeds I sow
please keep them safe below
till the rain comes tumbling down

Kev Russel inspired and co-written by his 4 YO son.

"

CHORUS:
Somebody bring me a flower, I’m a robot
Somebody bring me a flower, I’m a robot
I’m all metal and plastic, wires and elastic
Somebody bring me a flower, I’m a robot

VERSE 1:
Name told some robots to play some music
Robots played their music with a stick, stick, stick
Robots sang about how name been gone so long
All the other robots loved that song.

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
I’m a robot, not a power ranger
I’m a robot, just like a coat hanger
I’m a robot, not a country singer
I’m a robot.

CHORUS"

LOSER by Beck

Stupid, but kinda fun

In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey
Butane in my veins so I'm out to cut the junkie
With the plastic eyeballs, spray paint the vegetables
Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
Kill the headlights and put it in neutral
Stock car flamin' with a loser and the cruise control
Baby's in Reno with the vitamin D
Got a couple of couches sleep on the love seat
Someone keeps sayin I'm insane to complain
About a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
Don't believe everything that you breathe
You get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
So shave your face with some mace in the dark
Savin' all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park

Yo, cut it.

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(Double-barrel buckshot)
Soy un perdidor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?

Forces of evil in a bozo nightmare
Banned all the music with a phony gas chamber
'Cause one's got a weasel and the other's got a flag
One's got on the pole shove the other in a bag
With the rerun shows and the cocaine nose job
The daytime crap of a folksinger slob
He hung himself with a guitar string

Slap the turkey neck and it's hangin from a pigeon wing
You can't write if you can't relate
Trade the cash for the beef for the body for the hate
And my time is a piece of wax, fallin' on a termite
That's chokin on the splinters

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(Get crazy with the Cheeze Whiz)
Soy un perdidor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(Drive-by body pierce)

Yo bring it on down
Sooooooy...
(Soy un perdedor I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?)
(I'm a driver, I'm a winner; things are gonna change, I can feel it.)

Soy un perdidor

I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(I can't believe you)
Soy un perdidor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
Soy un perdidor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(Sprechen sie Deutches, baby)
Soy un perdidor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?
(Know what I'm sayin?)

We Want a Rock by They Might Be Giants

Where was I? I forgot
The point that I was making
I said if I was smart that I would
Save up for a piece of string
And a rock to wind the string around

Everybody wants a rock
To wind a piece of string around
Everybody wants a rock
To wind a piece of string around

Throw the crib door wide
Let the people crawl inside
Someone in this town
Is trying to burn the playhouse down
They want to stop the ones who want
A rock to wind a string around
But everybody wants a rock
To wind a piece of string around

Throw the crib door wide
Let the people crawl inside
Someone in this town
Is trying to burn the playhouse down
They want to stop the ones who want
A rock to wind a string around
But everybody wants a rock
To wind a piece of string around

If I were a carpenter I'd
Hammer on my piglet, I'd
Collect the seven dollars and I'd
Buy a big prosthetic forehead
And wear it on my real head

Everybody wants prosthetic
Foreheads on their real heads
Everybody wants prosthetic
Foreheads on their real heads

Throw the crib door wide
Let the people crawl inside
Someone in this town
Is trying to burn the playhouse down
They want to stop the ones who want
Prosthetic foreheads on their heads
But everybody wants prosthetic
Foreheads on their real heads

Throw the crib door wide
Let the people crawl inside
Someone in this town
Is trying to burn the foreheads down
They want to stop the ones who want
A rock to wind a string around
But everybody wants a rock
To wind a piece of string aroun

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
To call Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up
And tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head

Songwriters: ZEVON, WARREN WILLIAM/LINDELL, DAVID ERIC
Written By Warren Zevon & David Lindell c. 1976 Zevon Music/BMI

Roland was a warrior from the Land of the Midnight Sun
With a Thompson gun for hire, fighting to be done
The deal was made in Denmark on a dark and stormy day
So he set out for Biafra to join the bloody fray

Through sixty-six and seven they fought the Congo war
With their fingers on their triggers, knee-deep in gore
For days and nights they battled the Bantu to their knees
They killed to earn their living and to help out the Congolese

Roland the Thompson gunner...

His comrades fought beside him - Van Owen and the rest
But of all the Thompson gunners, Roland was the best
So the CIA decided they wanted Roland dead
That son-of-a-bitch Van Owen blew off Roland's head

Roland the headless Thompson gunner
Norway's bravest son
Time, time, time
For another peaceful war
But time stands still for Roland
'Til he evens up the score
They can still see his headless body stalking through the night
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun
In the muzzle flash of Roland's Thompson gun

Roland searched the continent for the man who'd done him in
He found him in Mombassa in a barroom drinking gin
Roland aimed his Thompson gun - he didn't say a word
But he blew Van Owen's body from there to Johannesburg

Roland the headless Thompson gunner...
The eternal Thompson gunner
Still wandering through the night
Now it's ten years later but he still keeps up the fight
In Ireland, in Lebanon, in Palestine and Berkeley
Patty Hearst heard the burst of Roland's Thompson gun and bought it

Yours is No Disgrace

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face.
Caesar's palace, morning glory, silly human race,
On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place,
If the summer change to winter, yours is no disgrace.

Battleships confide in me and tell me where you are,
Shining, flying, purple wolfhound, show me where you are,
Lost in summer, morning, winter, travel very far,
Lost in musing circumstances, that's just where you are.

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face.
Caesar's palace, morning glory, silly human race,
On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place,
If the summer change to winter, yours is no,
Yours is no disgrace.
Yours is no disgrace.
Yours is no disgrace.

Death defying, mutilated armies scatter the earth,
Crawling out of dirty holes, their morals, their morals disappear.

Oh, no, I know a dirty word

Hey... Yay

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group (tribe) has always been

I recall reading somewhere that Jon Anderson once said something to the effect that some of his lyrics didn't have real meanings; they were written, much as the melody was, to sound good. Or something like that. Maybe you know the actual quote.

I have to admit that, at the time I heard this, I thought that perhaps this was just a way to avoid having to put in the effort to write lyrics that both sounded good, and were actually meaningful. And I'm a huge Yes fan; I've seen them in concert 3 times, more than any other band.

More recently, I've just come to accept the songs for what they are, and not dwell on the meanings or motivations for the lyrics. Thanks to your post, the tube amp is warming up, and I'll be listening to "Yours is No Disgrace" momentarily.

For weird lyrics just listen to pretty much any Monster Magnet song.

Monster Magnet - King Of Mars

You can rape the world and be creative now
You can kiss the right side of your brain

Oh, they can tell the tarots for the rest of us
And I can crown me Tarzan, king of Mars
Oh, they can tell the tarots for the rest of us
And I can crown me Tarzan, king of Mars

All the blazing suns
Suck up all the Gods and punks
It's enough to change your life
And you know I love to come

I can see beyond your dreams
I can see it on TV
Keep it all for me babe, all forever

You can rape the world and be creative now
You can kiss the right side of your brain, yeah

Oh, they can tell the tarots for the rest of us
And I can crown me Tarzan, king of Mars
Oh, they can tell the tarots for the rest of us
And I can crown me Tarzan, king of Mars

You can rape the world and be creative now
You can kiss the right side of your brain

Oh, they can tell the tarots for the rest of us
And I can crown me Tarzan, king of Mars
Oh, they can tell the tarots for the rest of us
And I can crown me Tarzan, king of Mars

HUGE Yes Fanatic here for over 40 years.

I gave-up trying to make heads or tails of Jon's lyrics years ago. (See: Tales From Topographic Oceans)
T Rabin wrote understandable stuff: "For some reason You're questioning why I always believed it gets better. One difference between You and I, Your Heart is inside Your Head."

My current Fa-Vor-Rite song of all time is "The Man You Always Wanted Me To Be" from Fly From Here, a Chris Squire tune. Those lyrics really hit home.

California by Delta Spirit

I want you to move to California for yourself
I want you to find whatever your heart needs
I want you to move to California for yourself
But not for me

I want you to go out there and find somebody else
I want him to treat you like I know he should
I want you to find somebody new for yourself
If not for me

All of the feelings that I know you've never felt
And all of the simple words you never said
I want you to keep them like a secret to yourself
They're not for me

I want you to wander silent past my outstretched arms
I want you to hide yourself from all I see
And though my heart will fight until its dying breath
You're not for me

I want you to move to California for yourself
I want you to find whatever your heart needs
I want you to move to California for yourself
But not for me

Shady Lane by Pavement (favorite parts bolded)

Blind date with the chancer
We had oysters and dry lancers
When the check arrived we went dutch, dutch, dutch, dutch
A redder shade of neck on a whiter shade of trash
And this emory board is giving me a rash
Im flat out
Youre so beautiful to look at when you cry
Freeze, don't move
You've been chosen as an extra in the movie adaptation
Of the sequel to your life.


A shady lane -- everybody wants one
A shady lane -- everybody needs one
Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god
Oh my god, oh your god, oh his god, over god
Its everybodys god, it's everybodys god, it's everybodys god, its
Everybodys god
The worlds collide, but all that we want is a shady lane

Glance, don't stare
Soon you're being told to recognize your heirs
No, not me -- Im an island of such great complexity
Stress surrounds in the muddy peaceful center of this town
Tell me off in the hotel lobby right in front of all the bellboys and the
Over-friendly concierge


A shady lane -- everybody wants one
A shady lane -- everybody needs one
Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god
Oh my god, oh your god, oh his god, oh her god
Its everybodys god, it's everybodys god, it's everybodys god, its
Everybodys god
The worlds collide, but all that I want is a shady lane.

My fovorite drinking song, Johnny Tarr

Lemme tell you a little story
About a man named Johnny Tarr
He was a hard drinking son of a preacher
Always at the bar

Lager from the tap
Or shots of Paddy from the shelf
He could open his throttle
And throw back a bottle
As quick as the Devil himself, Johnny Tarr

And the word got around
That Johnny Tarr was no pretender
From Claire to here they'd lock up the beer
When Johnny went on a bender

Down at Dickey Mack's
The Rising Sun, or at the Swan
He was drinking at seven, by ten to eleven
Well, all the booze would be gone, Johnny Tarr

And even if you saw it yourself, you wouldn't believe it
But I wouldn't trust a person like me, if I were you
Sure I wasn't there, I swear I have an alibi
I heard it from a man who knows a fella who says it's true

It was nine in the morning
On a cold and rainy night
Johnny walked into the Castle Bar
Looking to get tight

He had money in his pocket
He had whiskey in his eye
He said, "Get up off your asses
And set up the glasses
I'm drinking this place dry"

Now all the serious boozers
They were soon broken hearted
When Johnny finished off six
And he was only getting started

Guzzling down the pints
Knockin' em back like candy
He was lookin' alright to be drinkin' all night
Then Nora brought out the brandy, Johnny Tarr

And even if you saw it yourself, you wouldn't believe it
But I wouldn't trust a person like me, if I were you
Sure I wasn't there, I swear I have an alibi
I heard it from a man who knows a fella who says it's true

Johnny drank the whole damn bottle
Had another pint or two
When it made no impression
He started a session with Murphy's Millennium Brew

He was waiting for his pint
When his face turned green
Jesus, Johnny fell down
After only fifteen

And you could've heard a pin drop
Then the crowd let out a roar
It took five Cork women
To lift Johnny off the floor

The doctor looked him over
And said, "Better call the hearse
But it's not what you're thinkin'
It wasn't the drinkin' this man died of thirst" Johnny Tarr

And even if you saw it yourself, you wouldn't believe it
But I wouldn't trust a person like me, if I were you
Sure I wasn't there, I swear I have an alibi
I heard it from a man who knows a fella who says it's true

And even if you saw it yourself, you wouldn't believe it
But I wouldn't trust a person like me, if I were you
Sure I wasn't there, I swear I have an alibi
I heard it from a man who knows a fella who says it's true
Send "Johnny Tarr" Ringtone to your cell

Merle Haggard - Okie from Muskogee

We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee;
We don't take our trips on LSD
We don't burn our draft cards down on Main Street;
We like livin' right, and bein' free.

I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
A place where even squares can have a ball
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all

We don't make a party out of lovin';
We like holdin' hands and pitchin' woo;
We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy,
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do.

And I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
A place where even squares can have a ball.
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all.

Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear;
Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen.
Football's still the roughest thing on campus,
And the kids here still respect the college dean.

We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
In Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA.

Favorite weird song from a legitimate group has got to be "Plexiglass Toilet" by Styx - Youtube

Keep in mind that Styx was a serious, progressive, hard rock band on the level of Led Zeppelin or Emerson, Lake & Palmer that wasn't usually involved with silly stuff or novelty songs. But on their 1973 album "The Serpent is Rising" if you left the needle on side 1 after the last listed track "As Bad As This" - a monotonous, melancholy ballad that just seems to drone on and on forever - all of a sudden it launched into this weird, almost cartoonish "Plexiglass Toilet" song that in not listed on the album cover. (Although there is a tiny blurb about the "Plexiglass Toilet Choir" buried in the liner notes if you bothered to read all the fine print.)

I'm not sure if they listed Plexiglass Toilet when the album was later released on CD, since I only have the original vinyl. But I don't think that at the time this hidden track was very well known because "As Bad As This" was just so fucking depressing that most people just raised the needle and stopped listening when that song came on and only people who were too stoned to work their turntable's cue lever and just let the record play to the end by mistake ever discovered this little Easter Egg.


ETA Lyrics:

Don't sit on the Plexiglas toilet
Said the momma to her son
Wipe the butt clean with the paper
Make it nice for everyone
But don't sit down on the Plexiglas toilet yeah

A boy of 5 stands close to the toilet
Holds the lid up with one hand
Won't let go the lid for fear that
On his banana it will land
Don't sit down on the Plexiglas toilet yeah

Boy grows up he eats the enchilada
With the sauce that burns the heart
Family comes to visit family
Momma says don't belch and fart
And don't sit down on the Plexiglas toilet yeah

Don't sit on the Plexiglas toilet
Said the momma to her son
Wipe the butt clean with the paper
Make it nice for everyone
But don't sit down on the Plexiglas toilet yeah

Everybody Sing!

Don't sit on the Plexiglas toilet
Said the momma to her son
Wipe the butt clean with the paper
Make it nice for everyone
But don't sit down on the Plexiglas toilet yeah

Don't sit on the Plexiglas toilet
Said the momma to her son
Wipe the butt clean with the paper
Make it nice for everyone
But don't sit down on the Plexiglas toilet yeah
