In the shadow of the temple Beyond the iron doors We're all getting salads, man What do you want on yours? What do you want on your salad? What do you want on your salad? What do you want on your salad? What do you want on yours? We got ranch (Yee-ha!) We got French (Ooh-la-la!) We got Italian (Buenisimo!) And balsamic (Hidey-ho!) What do you want on your salad? What do you want on your salad? What do you want on your salad? What do you want on yours? Cut off your ears If you don't want to hear But life is a buffet and we got everything And croutons What do you want on your salad? What do you want on your salad? What do you want on your salad? What do you want on yours? What do you want? What do you want? What do you want? What do you want?

I pick up my trash When people are looking I go across the street When people are coming I leave my house Go for a drive But nobody knows (Knows what?) I’m not really alive Gonna trick everybody into thinking i’m a somebody (4x) I see them watch When I walk by Like they would To any other guy I bet they think There goes a pretty good call But when i’m back home I’m just staring at the wall Gonna trick everybody into thinking i’m a somebody (4x) I got a job At the grocery store My manager calls me Superstar Gonna trick everybody into thinking i’m a somebody (4x)

Just because you are big Doesn’t mean you won’t go extinct Anyway, I can say All your strength never worked on me You got a really big foot You drag it around the room You're bigger than me But I'm bigger than somebody too You got a really really really big foot You drag it across the room You're bigger than me But I'm bigger than somebody too Just because you are big doesn’t mean you won’t go to sleep Anyway, I can say That all your strength will never work on me On me... Lean close to me when you talk I got big ears So what I’m really tall I know it all And even when you whisper to yourself under your bed you know what? I can hear, it I can hear it (I can hear it. I can hear it.) I can hear it, I can hear it (I can hear it. I can hear it) You oughta be In a cage I am regular And you are strange I'm very strong My hands are long And even when you think a thought inside of your head you know what? I can hear, it I can hear it (I can hear it. I can hear it.) I can hear it, I can hear it (I can hear it. I can hear it)

Clint Eastwood is my dad Best dad I ever had He’s just “Grandpa” to my kids He talks about all the movies he did Clint Eastwood is the bomb He loves me and he loves my mom He supports me in many ways Best dad in the U.S.A. Clint Eastwood is my dad When he dies I’ll be very sad (Very sad) He’s no punk rocker He prefers Charlie Parker Dad wasn’t always around But I love him just the same

Fear of Body 02:46
The body’s erupting again Somebody tell my baby hold on Waiting for my body, waiting for my body, waiting for my body cool down Waiting for my body, waiting for my body, waiting for my body cool down The body’s reacting to sound Somebody tell my baby get down Waiting for my body, waiting for my body, waiting for my body break down Waiting for my body, waiting for my body, waiting for my body break down Body Fear of body Body Fear of body Feel the body start to resonate You gotta contemplate Will you disintegrate (No way man) Feel the body fail to cooperate You could be safe at home Or on a dinner date I think I need a body lobotomy Is my cold dead hand still a part of my body? Fear of body Body Fear of body My body’s only four-and-a-half feet tall If I ever got too tall I’d be afraid I’d fall My body’s only four-and-a-quarter feet tall If I ever got too tall I’d be afraid I’d fall, fall, fall, fall When I leave my baby behind Somebody tell my body Somebody tell my body get down And should I leave my body behind Somebody tell my baby Somebody tell my baby hold on

Last Meal 02:13
Well son, now that I’ve read your LAST RITES, It’s time to get your order for your LAST MEAL. Last meal? Last meal, huh? Father, I thought you’d never ask. I want a chicken pot pie With the chicken still alive Anything That’ll look me in the eye An alligator In a box I’ll spread it on a bagel With the capers and the lox Gimme a chain saw I’ll eat it it raw With a 55 gallon tub of Cold coleslaw Chocolate milk And a buttered scone I got a date with the devil And I'm going alone I killed An innocent man I'll take seven Beers in a can Barbecue sauce in a big horse trough And I want a Frito pie Before I die, yeah Well son, you got a mighty big appetite. Here’s what I can do for you. I can get you a nice juicy steak. A baked potato. And a fresh green salad.
