Now you see, some places in the Third World it might be difficult to dance to this because the kerosene record player is not a very efficient device ... And a lot of times they run out of, they run out of spunk right in the middle of the chorus ... Causing the song to sound like this...<br>

However we continue in spite of the fact that the fuel may be low on your record player. We suggest that in places like the Fourth World where things are really tough that you keep the record player going by rubbing two sticks together. And if all else fails, throw the record away ... build your own green rosetta ... try this recipe: Well start with a lump of grass ... the grass bone connected to the ankle bone ... the knee bone connected to the wishbone ... and then everybody moves to New York and goes to a party with Warren. Hey! And we've flown in, at great expense, (triple scale, no less, ladies and gentlemen), Steve Gad's clone to play the out-chorus on this song ... lies really outa-site, in spite of the fact that the click track is totally irrelevant to what he's doing now. I'm listening to the click, yes I'm suffering with the click track right now ... this guy is totally out of sync with it, but what the fuck. Ed Mann will call him up later, show him the sign.

Whereupon the door closes violently

Joe's Garage Acts II & III version:
This is the CENTRAL SCRUTINIZER ... As you can see, MUSIC can get you pretty fucked up ... Take a tip from Joe, do like he did, hock your imaginary guitar and get a good job ... Joe did, and he's a happy guy now, on the day shift at the Utility Muffin Research Kitchen, arrogantly twisting the sterile canvas snoot of a fully-charged icing anointment utensil. And every time a nice little muffin comes by on the belt, he poots forth ... And if this doesn't convince you that MUSIC causes BIG TROUBLE ... then maybe I should turn off my plastic megaphone and sing the last song on the album in my regular voice ...

Good God! You're really jammin ! Now the Reggae version, hey, for the People in the Third World ... we haven't forgotten anybody on this song ... for all of you French people ... who think that you re outta sight... And for the people in Spain...who think the French people are where its at ... And for the people in Mongolia who always wanted to go to Spain for a vacation ...

Now you see, some places in the Third World it might be difficult to dance to this because the kerosene record player is not a very efficient device ... And a lot of times they run out of, they run out of spunk right in the middle of the chorus ... Causing the song to sound like this...

A little green rosetta

However we continue in spite of the fact that the fuel may be low on your record player. We suggest that in places like the Fourth World where things are really tough that you keep the record player going by rubbing two sticks together. And if all else fails, throw the record away ... build your own green rosetta ... try this recipe: Well start with a lump of grass ... the grass bone connected to the ankle bone ... the knee bone connected to the wishbone ... and then everybody moves to New York and goes to a party with Warren. Hey! And we've flown in, at great expense, (triple scale, no less, ladies and gentlemen), Steve Gad's clone to play the out-chorus on this song ... lies really outa-site, in spite of the fact that the click track is totally irrelevant to what he's doing now. I'm listening to the click, yes I'm suffering with the click track right now ... this guy is totally out of sync with it, but what the fuck. Ed Mann will call him up later, show him the sign. Okay Vinnie, where is five?

They're pretty good musicians
They re pretty good musicians
They're pretty good musicians
They're pretty good musicians
But it don't make no difference
If they're good musicians
Because anybody who would buy this record
Doesn't give a fuck if there's good musicians
On it
Because this is a stupid song
AND THAT'S THE WAY I LIKE IT
A little green rosetta
A little green rosetta
A little green rosetta
A little green rosetta
You make a muffin betta
With a little green rosetta
A little green rosetta
Rosetta, rosetta, rosetta
