Lyrics

Big Bad Thing
Well I got off the ship looking for a new kind of cooking
But the only thing I found was this
It's a different kind of weather altogether
And I never got the horrors like I got from this

Ah, jump back, dump that scratch it out and leave it flat
I'm not sure this is going to work out.
It's a big bad thing and it's made out of tin
And I'd like to be told just what it's all about
So I lose all my bearings, can't find where I live,
Now I'm standing at this door
A being from another planet opens up the door
And says: yeeeessss?
Vhat You Vhant?

Now I refuse to believe it could possibly breathe
The same atmosphere as me
I try to be polite and say I made a mistake
Bu the trouble is I'm shaking like a Christmas tree
So here I am on the doorstep or somewhere or other
I'm trying to communicate, I don't know why I bother
The conversation's limited to say the very least
It's always: yes?
Vhat You Vhant?
I wanna get out of here (questions and answers)
Vhat You Vhant?
I wanna get out of here (questions and answers)

So here come's the thing that isn't a thing
Running down the line when the telephone rings
Here comes a voice that I'm learning to dread
It's in my head!
Vhat You Vhant?
I wanna get out of here (questions and answers)
It's just too damned tough
I got C.I.D. protection, but that just isn't enough.
Bye-bye
Mummamammamow. Bye-bye

Vhat You Vhant?

Distressed Gentlefolk
We were deeply confused young men when we made this record. Max, Jones and I had all been drinking dangerously for over a year now. Generally, we had it down in concert. In just about every other department, however, we were coming to bits, individually and collectively, and to me this record actually shows the morbid state of things at the time.
