SLEEVE NOTES:
[nb. the following sleeve notes are taken from the US CD release.]

You were born in the 60’s. We made a war with Vietnamese. We love LSD. We died. Easily. Can we just say C’est la Vie? So what! Say what! For your pwn sake. Do you have a headache or heartbreak. Are you made or broken by the birthday cake. You may be slow on the uptake! I pour pot in the birthyday cake. So what! Say what! For my own sake. Watch out yo! Here I come yo! I’m gonna change to a rattle snake turn up the TV! Do you agree? I’, talking turkey. Take it from me. I’m gonna show my heart for my dove. But it’s moldy mom, isn’t it?

CAUTION: Filling is Hot

Know Your Chicken

16 years ago, one day
I was walking down the street
I was cruising in Brooklyn
You know what I’m saying?
Something was cooking
But, wasn’t yet a chicken
There was a man
Selling chicks in a box
He said, “2 for 1, but 3 for 2”
I said, “That’s not bad – here’s money for you”
One was magenta, the other was blue
I KNOW MY CHICKEN
YOU GOT TO KNOW YOUR CHICKEN
One day, the blue one went away
The other grew up fuckin’ well
She was noisy every night
I had always chicken-bite
Then I met a lover
One night, she made me dinner
Licking finger, I wondered
Where she got the chicken
I KNOW MY CHICKEN
YOU GOT TO KNOW YOUR CHICKEN
Spare the rod and spoil the chick
Before you go and shit a brick
I KNOW MY CHICKEN
YOU GOT TO KNOW YOUR CHICKEN
She went to college to study anatomy
I followed her father’s butchery
We got 2 babies, Isn’t it cool?
One is Magenta, the other is Blue
I KNOW MY CHICKEN
YOU GOT TO KNOW YOUR CHICKEN

Beef Jerky

My weight is 300 pounds
My favorite is beef jerky
I’m a vagabond, I’m a vagabond
My mom says, “You are kinky!”
Who cares?
I don’t care
A horse’s ass is better than yours
Lie down here, baby
Just relax…honey
My baby horse is Jennifer
What a beefy hip!
She has a fine coat of fur
What shiny hair!
Who cares?
I don’t care
A horse’s ass is better than yours
Let’s eat carrots together until…
