Debra kadabra, say she's a witch,
Shit-ass charlotte, ain't that a bitch?
Debra kadabra, haw that's rich.
June, a rancho granny,
Shook her wrinkled fanny

Shoes are too tight and pointed
Ankles sorta puffin' out
Cause me to shout:

Oh debra algebra ebneezra kadabra
Witch goddess, witch goddess of lankershim boulevard.
Cover my entire bodice, with avon cologna.

And drive me to some relative's house, in east l.a. (foogadah! ? )
(just till my skin clears up)
Turn it to channel thirteen,
And maybe watch the rubber tongue, when it comes out
From the puffed, and flanulent mexican rubbergoods mask.

Next time they show the brnokka
Make me buy the flosser.
Make me grow brainiac fingers.
But with more hair!
(but with more hair)
Make me kiss your turquoise jewelry.
Emboss me.
Rub the hot front part of my head,
With rented unguents

Give me bas relief!
Cast your dancing spell my way
I promise to go under it.
If she casts a spell my way,
I promise to go under it.
If she casts a spell my way,
I promise to go under it.

Oh, hear this!

Learn the pachuco hop, and let me twirl you!
Learn the pachuco hop, and let me twirl you!
Oh debra fauntleroy magnesium kadabra! take me with you!
Don't you want any a these?

One of the greatest songs ever made! The lyrics, Beefhearts voice, the sax and the trombone, the backing vocals and the rythm; pure gold!

Jonathan Whitfield

Beefheart sounds freaking terrifying on this.

Chris P Bacon

He sounds like a maniac!

Justin Fontes

This track is genius. What Beefheart does with words is what Zappa does to music. “Drive me to some relatives house in East LA (WOODEN DOG) JUST ‘TIL MY SKIN CLEARS UP.”

James Cline

I love that the story behind the lyrics happened


Give me Bas Relief!

Josh Derooy

"Make me kiss a dead guys jewelry"



Eric Herrera

Make me grow brainiac fingers!

Jeni Kaybee

Sun zoom sparque!
