Bag Lady
Ebn-Ozn Lyrics


Through the New York winter
With rags around her feet
Clutching ancient shopping bags
Destitutions beat
Burned out like a frozen matchstick
Screaming at the wall
A helpless hungry lady
With no friends to call
Chorus:
I wonder
Where she goes when the night falls
What thunder
Has made us deaf to her calls?
Bag lady...
Oh gloveless, shattered frailty
The damp wind bites her hands
She shuffles by a restaurant
Towards their garbage cans
She eats the rotten refuse
Like vermin on the dead
Screaming at the passersby
"Get it through your heads!"
Repeat chorus
Sometimes on my way to work
I give her my spare change
The Shopping Bag Lady
Looks at me like I'm strange
She never once says thank you
But I don't mind a bit
All these homeless people
Can't make no sense of it
Repeat chorus

"We are not going to tie aunt Edna to the roof!"

Yep! Imogene Coco was a brilliant comedian (most famously on "Your Show of Shows" with Sid Caesar) and, late in her career as "Aunt Edna" in National Lampoon's Vacation. She was also a genuinely nice person.

Hasn't anyone else noticed Liam Neeson taking the trash out at 1:10?

Unanimous Delivers

OK after all that Emergency Broadcast Network, why suddenly "What do you mean you want to go OUT!?" XD

k8fan

You're welcome. She was screamingly funny, and a really nice person as well.

Thank you so much! I have been looking for EBN-OZN for years. I saw this video once or twice on MTV many years ago and liked it, but forgot about it. One night about 5 years ago, I was cleaning out some things and found a piece of paper with EBN OZN written on it, but couldn't remember the song. AEIOU was brought up by a friend, but it didn't seem right. Now I know it was this one that had made the impression. Thanks again for bringing a piece of my childhood home to me.

I love the serious turn to the camera where he shouts "BAG LAYYDAAAY"

I remember reading about these guys back when this record came out. There was an article in Guitar World, with photos showing the guitarist surrounded by guitars and synthesizers. At that time, he was working with one of the first MIDI guitar synth units. When they went on tour, the entire band triggered synthesizers from their instruments, which was kinda unusual at the time (actually, it's unusual NOW).
