Δυο έξοχες [surprise…] live εκτελέσεις τραγουδιών του FZ από το άλμπουμ Playground Psychotics, κυκλοφορημένο στα early ’90s αλλά με ηχογραφήσεις απο το ’70 – ’71.
Το πρώτο τραγούδι προέρχεται από το Absolutely Free, το δεύτερο από το We’re Only In It For The Money.
Μιλούν για παιδιά …σε τελείως διαφορετικό πλαίσιο το καθένα.

Two excellent [surprise…] live performances of FZ songs from the album Playground Psychotics, released in the early ’90s, containing recordings from 1970 – 71.
The first song comes from Absolutely Free, the second from We’re Only In It For The Money.
They’re talking about kids… in a completely different context each.

Status Back Baby 2:49 Mom & Dad

❝ I’m losing status at the high school
I used to think that it was my school
WAH WAH WAH WAH
I was the king of every school activity
But that’s no more…
Oh mama, what will come of me?
The other night we painted posters
We played some records by the coasters
WAH WAH WAH WAH
A bunch of pom-pom girls
Looked down their nose at me
They had painted tons of posters, I had painted three
I hear the secret whispers Everywhere I go
My school spirit is at an All time low
I’m losing status at the high school
I used to think that it was my school
WAH WAH WAH WAH
Everyone in town knows I’m a handsome football star
I sing and dance and spray my hair And drive a Shiny car
I’m friendly and I’m charming I belong to De Molay
I’m gonna try like mad to Get my status back today
Status back, Baby, Status back, Baby
Status back, Baby, Status back, Baby ❞

❝ Someone said they made some noise
The cops have shot some girls & boys
You’ll sit home & drink all night
They looked too weird… it served
Them right
Mama! Mama!
Someone said they made some noise
The cops have shot some girls & boys
You’ll sit home & drink all night
They looked too weird… it served
Them right
Ever take a minute just to show a real
Emotion
In between the moisture cream & velvet
Facial lotion?
Ever tell your kids you’re glad that
They can think?
Ever say you loved ’em? Ever let ’em
Watch you drink?
Ever wonder why your daughter looked
So sad?
It’s such a drag to have to love a plastic
Mom & dad
Mama! Mama!
Your child was killed in the park today
Shot by the cops as she quietly lay
By the side of the creeps she knew…
They killed her too ❞


Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
