Frank Zappa

Frank Vincent Zappa (December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993) was an American composer, singer-songwriter, guitarist, recording engineer, record producer and film director. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Zappa wrote rock, jazz, orchestral and musique concrète works. He also directed feature-length films and music videos, and designed album covers. Zappa produced almost all of the more than 60 albums he released with the band The Mothers of Invention and as a solo artist. While in his teens, he acquired a taste for 20th-century classical composers such as Edgard Varèse, Igor Stravinsky, and Anton Webern along with 1950s rhythm and blues music.

Hey! I'm only fourteen
Sickly 'n' thin
Tried all of my life
Just to grow me a chin
It popped out once
But my dad pushed it in
Why did he hurt me?
He's my next of kin...
He's a mex-I-kin

I'm lonely 'n' green
Too small for my shirt
If simmons was here
I could feature my hurt
Scared of the future
Hope I don't grow
I know nobody likes me
'cause everywhere I go
They say no
They say no
They say no

Now I'm older
Got a place in the town, babe
Got a chin on my shoulder
'n' it keeps growing down 'n' down 'n' down
I'm horny 'n' lonely
'n' I wish I was dead
Why am I livin'?
I wanna be dead instead
That's right, I said
I wanna be dead instead
Now dig this:

I wanna be dead
In bed
Please kill me
'cause that would thrill me
I wanna be dead
In bed
Please kill me
'cause that would thrill me
(etc, repeat)
