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 »

Now here ya come baby 
With yer tail draggin` the gravy 
Y` know yer P`s `n Q`s 
What ya don`t know baby 

Is you givin` me the blues 
Ya got juice on your chin 
Eggs on the drain-board 
Pie on the wall 

Dirt on the rug 
I come home late 
`N I stumbled `n swore 
Ya won`t even give me a hug 

Ya had my things all laid out by the door 
I`m leavin` 
I`m gonna take up with ah mermaid 
`N leave you land lubbin` women alone 

`N leave you land-lubbin` women alone 
Ya said ya had it together once 
Now yer head`s around the bend 
I`m tellin` ya woman 

Ya better get it bach together again 
I`m gonna grow fins 
`N go back in the water again 
If ya don`t leave me alone 

I`m gonna take up with ah mermaid 
`N leave you land-lubbin` women alone 
`N leave you land-lubbin` women alone 
Now here ya come baby 

With yer tail draggin` the gravy 
Ya know yer P`s `n Q`s 
What ya don`t know woman 
Is yer givin` me the blues
