The cretins from hoppin’
You gotta keep it beatin’
For all the hoppin’ cretins
Cretin! Cretin!

Guitar player played a solo
one note at a time
Organ player disappeared
and drank a bottle of wine
We tried to save my discography
But in the end we had to sever
We tried to make a record
But we couldn’t get it together

— Eugene Chadbourne, We Tried To Make A Record But We Couldn’t Get It Together
