    Rad Gumbo
    Little Feat
    Bill Payne, Paul Barrere, Martin Kibbee, Sam Clayton, Ken Gradney, Neon Park
    If you walk in off the street
    You can take the load right off your feet
    Mamma bring the menu to your seat
    But the bill of fare be short & sweet
    Won't find no etouffe
    Mamm never ever could cook it that way
    She's all ancien regime
    No nouvell cuisine
    She cook gumbo
    A mighty rad gumbo
    It's the only way she can go
    Down at the Club Rad Gumbo
    Now the heads and shells stay in the stock
    She stirs her roux and really rocks
    One gallon shellfish stock or water
    Man this gumbo is made to order
    Two toes of garlick finely chopped
    Man this party just can't be stopped
    Mamma's pots are boiling, band starts to blow
    Piano keys a flying like Fats Domino
    She cook gumbo
    A mighty rad gumbo
    It's the only way she…

    Lou Reed
    The Little Willies
    We were drivin' through West Texas
    The land of beef and pork
    Where they tend the hides of leather
    We wear back in New York
    In a pasture, along a roadside
    Behind a brokedown shack
    On a dusky side of evening
    We saw a figure dressed in black
    And we don't mean to sound like we're trippin'
    But we swear to God
    We saw Lou Reed cow tippin'
    Cow tippin'
    Hey Lou, "Is that you?"
    She said as we pulled to the shoulder
    He just said, "Go screw."
    And then he turned and tipped one over
    Under a spitshine Western sky
    The color of blue varnish
    Hey it's like Fellini
    Actually I'm thinkin' more like Jim Jarmusch
    And we can't say how much we've been sippin'
    But we swear to God
    We saw Lou Reed cow tippin'
    Cow tippin'
    I got cops on the cell
    I said I got a little story to tell
    Lou Reed is in…
    And we hope our perceptions isn't slippin'
    But we swear to God
    We saw Lou Reed cow tippin'
    Cow tippin'
    Cow tippin'
    Cow tippin'
    Cow tippin'
    You really think that was Lou Reed?
    Cow tippin'
    I'm sure it was, he was wearing black Levis
    Cow tippin'
    I thought he was a vegetarian
    Cow tippin'
    He's just tippin' them over, he wasn't eating them
    Cow tippin'
    Oh
    Cow tippin'

    When I first got this album, I skipped over this song, many times, BIG MISTAKE!
    It has really grown on me.




    Future Farmers of America
    Lou Reed
    Born on a farm in a transatlantic moonlight
    Split like a cord of wood my family broke up
    Sold like a piece of steer, a piece of meat, a cow
    A breathing piece of shit
    Picked for my age, for my strength and make up
    Called for I was tall, I was big, I could hold up
    A tree or a piece of steel I could do
    What my fat owner can't
    Ah, future farmers of America
    Future farmers of America
    Future farmers of America
    Ah
    I'm always watching the way his wife looks me over
    I have a sex twice as big as her husband's
    If I wasn't so large, so strong, so pale
    I'd disappear under a bush
    Colorless men and ladies of the world unite
    Kill your master with one cut of your knife
    Kill them during sex, kill them during talk
    Kill them whenever you can
    Future farmers of America
    Future farmers…
    These -
    Stupid black owners are foreigners to affairs of the heart
    Look at me, I'll never own land that I work on
    Every one of us here shares a surname
    This father must die
    I was born on the dark cusp of twilight
    My father was dark, my mother was light
    Look at me, I'm strong
    I could crush him in my fist
    Ah
    I could crush him in my
    I could crush him in my
    I could crush him in my fist
    I could crush him in my
    I could crush him in my
    I could crush him in my fist
    Future farmers of America
    I could crush him in my fist
    Future farmers of America
    I could crush him in my fist
    Future farmers of America
    I could crush him in my fist
