Lyrics

I coulda swore her hair was made of rayon
She wore a Milton Bradley Crayon
But she was something I could lay on
Can't remember what became of me . . .
Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy

She put a Doobie Brothers tape on
(La la la la la-ahh la)
I had a Roger Daltrey cape on
(A Roger Daltrey cape on)
There was a bed I dumped her shape on
Can't remember what became of me . . .
Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy

Somewhat later on
I woke up and she was gone
There was dew out on the lawn
In the sunrise
Later she came back
With a rumpled paper sack
Which she told me would contain
A surprise

She stuck her hand right in it to the bottom
Said she knew I'd be surprised she got 'em
Take a Charleston pimp to spot 'em
Then she gave a pair of shoes to me . . .
Plastic leather, 14 triple D

I said: "I wonder what's the shoes for?"
She told me: "Don't you worry no more!"
And got right down there on the tile floor
Now Darling STOMP ALL OVER ME! . . .
Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy

Is this something new
Having people stomp on you?
Is it what I need to do
For your pleasure?
(Yo' pleasure . . . it's . . . uh . . . uh . . . all I need)
"What is this, a quiz?
Don't you worry what it is
It is merely just a moment
I can treasure . . . "

(What is . . . ?) (You know . . . )

By ten o'clock her arms and legs were rendered
She couldn't talk 'cause her mouth had been extendered
Looked to me as though she had been blendered
But was this abject misery?
No! No!
Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy!
Well . . .

But was this abject misery?
No! No!
Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy!
But was this abject misery?
No! No!
Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy!

It might seem strange to Herb and Dee--
Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy!

Notes About This Song

  • ""Carolina Hard-core Ecstasy". That was written actually for the girl who played the gong in (...) "Eat That Question". She used to work at the recording studio and she was from South Carolina. That was when I was in the wheelchair and I was working there on the The Grand Wazoo and Waka/Jawaka albums. And I needed to have a gong overdubbed. And the way we were working, I wasn't in a regular studio, it was in a mix room and in order to do an overdub, since we didn't have a studio facility was there we had to run a microphone into the toilet which had joined the mix room. So we had this girl in this little tiled toilet off to the side of this thing playing this gong. I think she never had so much fun in her life while just thrashing this gong near the fade-out of "Eat That Question". The song was based on stories she had told me." - Frank Zappa, The Supplement Tape, Interview with Co de Kloet.
  • Roger Daltrey was a member of the British rock group The Who, who indeed sometimes wore a cape on stage.
  • The line "It might seem strange to Herb and Dee" refers to Herb Cohen and his wife, Dee.
