    Frank Zappa quotes

    I was seeing an oxymoron here in politics...........
    The U.S. government, The Entertainment Division of the Military-Industrial Complex
    It has never mattered to me that thirty million people might think Im wrong. The number of people who thought Hitler was right did not make him right.

    The last election just laid the foundation of the next 500yrs of Dark Ages-1981
    Lets not be too tough on our own Ignorance, its the thing that makes America great. If America wern't incomparably ignorant, how could we have tolerated the last eight years?-1988
    A mind is like a parachute. It doesnt work if its not open
    Who are the brain police?
    One of my favorite philosophical tenets is that people will agree with you only if they already agree with you. You do not change peoples minds.

    Well, apparently I need a tube of K.Y. for you too. So tell me, where is the oxymoron? I guess since I'm not a paranoid ass I don't deserve to fly Frank for an avatar.
    Remember when he took on Tipper in the congressional meetings? He was a long way from being a boot licking democrat!

    relevant? maybe, maybe not...but i've taken some vicodin and had a little bit of the ganja...and this song cracks me up...

    Flakes! Flakes!
    Flakes! Flakes!

    They don't do no good
    They never be workin'
    When they oughta should
    They waste your time
    They're wastin' mine
    California's got the most of them
    Boy, they got a host of them
    Swear t'God they got the most
    At every business on the coast
    Swear t'God they got the most
    At every business on the coast
    They got the Flakes

    Flakes! Flakes!

    They can't fix yer brakes
    You ask 'em, "Where's my motor?"
    "Well it was eaten by snakes . . ."
    You can stab 'n' shoot 'n' spit
    But they won't be fixin' it
    They're lyin' an' lazy
    They can be drivin' you crazy
    Swear t'God they got the most
    At every business on the coast
    Swear t'God they got the most
    At every business on the coast
    [Take it away, Bob. . .]

    I asked as nice as I could
    If my job would
    Somehow be finished by Friday
    Well, the whole damn weekend
    Came 'n' went, Frankie
    [Wanna buy some mandies, Bob?]
    'N'they didn't do nothin'
    But they charged me double for Sunday
    You know, no matter what you do
    They gonna cheat 'n' rob you
    Then they'll send you a bill
    That'll get your senses reelin'
    And if you do not pay
    They got computer collectors
    That'll get you so crazy
    Til your head'll go through th' ceilin'
    Yes it will!

    I'm a moron 'n' this is my wife
    She's frosting a cake
    With a paper knife
    All what we got here's
    American made
    It's a little bit cheesey,
    But it's nicely displayed
    Well we don't get excited when it
    Crumbles 'n' breaks
    We just get on the phone
    And call up some Flakes
    They rush on over
    'N' wreck it some more
    'N' we are so dumb
    They're linin' up at our door
    Well, the toilet went crazy
    Yesterday afternoon
    The plumber he says
    "Never flush a lampoon!"
    This great information
    Cost me half a week's pay
    And the toilet blew up
    Later on the next day ay-eee-ay
    Blew up the next day WOO-OOO

    We are millions 'n' millions
    We're coming to get you
    We're protected by unions
    So don't let it upset you
    Can't escape the conclusion
    It's probably God's Will
    That civilization
    Will grind to a standstill
    And we are the people
    Who will make it all happen
    While yer children is sleepin',
    Yer puppy is crappin'
    You might call us Flakes
    Or something else you might coin us
    But we know you're so greedy
    That you'll probably join us
    We're comin' to get you, we're comin' to get you
    We're comin' to get you, we're comin' to get you
    We're comin' to get you, we're comin' to get you
    We're comin' to get you, we're comin' to get you

    The BEST part of the debate had to have been when he had Tipper on the ropes regarding censorship, he comes Al Gore. "Ah, Mr. Zappa, I've been a big fan of yours for years and own all your albums!". I'll bet that boy didn't get no Tipper action for a year!!!

    I want a nasty little jewish princess

    With a garlic aroma that could level tacoma
    Lonely inside
    Well, she can swallow my pride

    I want a hairy little jewish princess
    With a brand new nose, who knows where it goes
    I want a steamy little jewish princess
    With over-worked gums, who squeaks when she cums
    I donít want no troll
    I just want a yemenite hole

    I want a darling little jewish princess
    Who donít shit about cooking and is arrogant looking
    A vicious little jewish princess
    To specifically happen with a pee-pee thatís snappiní
    All up inside
    I just want a princess to ride
    Awright, back to the top...everybody twist

    I want a funky little jewish princess
    A grinder; a bumper, with a pre-moistened dumper
    A brazen little jewish princess
    With titanic tits, and sand-blasted zits
    She can even be poor
    So long as she does it with four on the floor
    (vapor-lock)

    I want a dainty little jewish princess
    With a couple of sisters who can raise a few blisters
    A fragile little jewish princess
    With roumanian thighs, who weasels íní lies
    For two or three nights
    Wonít someone send me a princess who bites
    Wonít someone send me a princess who bites
    Wonít someone send me a princess who bites
    Wonít someone send me a princess who bites

    Found a list of Zappa quotes.....enjoy!!!


    Jazz is not dead...it just smells funny.

    Stupidity is the basic building block of the universe.

    There is no hell. There is only France.

    Don't mind your make-up, you'd better make your mind up.

    Without music to decorate it, time is just a bunch of boring production deadlines or dates by which bills must be paid.

    It is always advisable to be a loser if you cannot become a winner.

    A mind is like a parachute. It doesnt work if it's not open.

    If we can't be free at least we can be cheap.

    Sometimes you got to get sick before you can feel better.

    You can't be a Real Country unless you have a BEER and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a BEER.

    There will never be a nuclear war; there's too much real estate involved.

    Consider for a moment any beauty in the name Ralph.

    Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?

    Outdoors for me is walking from the car to the ticket desk at the airport

    You drank beer, you played golf, you watched football - WE EVOLVED!

    You have just destroyed one model XQJ-37 nuclear powered pansexual roto-plooker....and you're gonna have to pay for it.

    Interviewer: "So Frank, you have long hair. Does that make you a woman?"
    FZ: "You have a wooden leg. Does that make you a table?"


    Without deviation from the norm, 'progress' is not possible.

    It's better to have something to remember than nothing to reget...

    Who are the brain police?

    The people of your century no longer require the service of composers.
    A composer is as useful to a person in a jogging suit as a dinsoaur turd in the middle of his runway.

    There are more love songs than anything else.
    If songs could make you do something we'd all love one another.

    I'm not black, but there's a whole lot of times I wish I could say I'm not white.

    Most people wouldn't know good music if it came up and bit them in the ass.

    Politics is the entertainment branch of industry.

    And a few more for good measure.

    The function of government ought to be: make sure you have good water to drink, somebody picking up the garbage, good roads to drive on, enough electricity to turn your light bulbs and your record player on, and whatever smaller amounts of regulatory assistance is necessary to make this society work.
    Frank Zappa (1940 - 1993), Interview with this submitter, New York City, 5/08/1980

    I'm interested in the capitalistic way of life, and the reason I like it better than anything else I've seen so far is because competition produces results. Every socialistic type of government where the State theoretically owns everything, and everybody does their little part to help the State, inevitably produces bad art, it produces social inertia, it produces really unhappy people, and it is more repressive than any other kind of government.
    Frank Zappa (1940 - 1993), Interview with this submitter, New York City, 5/08/1980

    My best advice to anyone who wants to raise a happy, mentally healthy child is: Keep him or her as far away from a church as you can.
    Frank Zappa (1940 - 1993)

    I'll give you a simple formula for straightening out the problems of the United States. First, you tax the churches. You take the tax off of capital gains and the tax off of savings. You decriminalize all drugs and tax them same way as you do alcohol. You decriminalize prostitution. You make gambling legal. That will put the budget back on the road to recovery, and you'll have plenty of tax revenue coming in for all of your social programs, and to run the army.
    Frank Zappa (1940 - 1993), Interview with this submitter, New York City, 5/08/1980

    If he's got Cruising With Ruben and the Jets on vinyl, grab it - the remix done in 1984, which is what the CD consists of, is not considered as good as the original recording.

    I've still got my original vinyl copy, from 1968. It's mostly Zappa's take on 50's R&R, with some very strange timings and musical references that are way beyond anything done before, or since, in that genre. Theres a Zappa wah-wah guitar solo on one of this album's songs that's jaw dropping, to say the least.
