Το ευφυέστερο ίσως punk τραγούδι όλων των εποχών, από τον “άσπονδο εχθρό” του punk, Frank Zappa…

Perhaps the most ingenious Punk song of all time, by Punk’s “bitter enemy”, Frank Zappa…

Hey! I’m only fourteen
Sickly ‘n’ thin
Tried all of my life
Just to grow me a chin
It popped out once
But my dad pushed it in
Why did he hurt me?
He’s my next of kin…
He’s a mex-i-kin
I’m lonely ‘n’ green
Too small for my shirt
If Simmons was here
I could feature my hurt
Scared of the future
Hope I don’t grow
I know nobody likes me
‘Cause everywhere I go
They say NO
They say NO
They say NO

Now I’m older
Got a place in the town, babe
Got a chin on my shoulder
‘N’ it keeps growing down ‘n’ down ‘n’ down
I’m horny ‘n’ lonely
‘N’ I wish I was dead
Why am I livin’?
I wanna be dead instead
That’s right, I said
I wanna be dead instead
Now dig this:

I wanna be dead
In bed
Please kill me
‘Cause that would thrill me
I wanna be dead
In bed
Please kill me
‘Cause that would thrill me

Have a lovely Thursday!

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
