Let's Make The Water Turn Black
Frank Zappa

Now believe me when i tell you that my song is really true
I want everyone to listen and believe
It's about some little people from a long time ago
And all the things the neighbors didn't know early in the morning daddy dinky went to work
Selling lamps & chairs to san ber'dino squares
And i still remember mama with her apron & her pad
Feeding all the boys at ed's cafe!

Whizzing & pasting & pooting through the day
(ronnie helping kenny helping burn his poots away!)
And all the while on a shelf in the shed:
Kenny's little creatures on display!

Ronnie saves his numies on a window in his room
(a marvel to be seen: dysentery green)
While kenny & his buddies had a game out in the back:
Let's make the water turn black

We see them after school in a world of their own
(to some it might seem creepy what they do...)
The neighbors on the right sat & watched them every night
(i bet you'd do the same if they was you)

Whizzing & pasting & pooting through the day
(ronnie helping kenny helping burn his poots away!)
And all the while on a shelf in the shed:
Kenny's little creatures on display!

Ronnie's in the army now & kenny's taking pills
Oh! how they yearn to see a bomber burn!
Color flashing, thunder crashing, dynamite machine!
(wait till the fire turns green...
Wait till the fire turns green)
Wait till the fire turns green
