Captain Beefheart

Don Van Vliet ( /væn ˈvliːt/, born Don Glen Vliet; January 15, 1941 – December 17, 2010) was an American musician, singer-songwriter, artist and poet widely known by the stage name Captain Beefheart. His musical work was conducted with a rotating ensemble of musicians called The Magic Band, active between 1965 and 1982, with whom he recorded 13 studio albums. Noted for his powerful singing voice with its wide range, Van Vliet also played the harmonica, saxophone and numerous other wind instruments. His music blended rock, blues and psychedelia with avant-garde and contemporary experimental composition. Beefheart was also known for exercising an almost dictatorial control over his supporting musicians, and for often constructing myths about his life. more »

Said the momma to the baby in the corn 
You are my first born 
You shall here on in be known as The Spotlight Kid 
And the mornin' cry of the rooster 
The baby lay alone 
And the old cow in the green grass 
Shed white tears in the red hot sun 
And The Spotlight Kid stood under the moon that evenin' 
Givin' her alibis and eatin' her a la modes 
And the green frogs croakin' around his abode 
And the mud cat pond by the old willow road 
All night the village waited and The Spotlight Kid never showed 
She was up on the mountain 
Tellin' her alibis and eatin' her a la modes 
Momma still knew she was the one 
She was the one who stole the pie from old Momma Eye 
Window bare rockin' chair groanin' like a grizzly bear 
And the ice cream searchin' high and low 
For his a la modes for his a la modes 
All night the village waited and The Spotlight Kid never showed 
She was up on the mountain tellin' her alibis 
And eatin' her a la modes
