I'm the Slime
by Frank Zappa

I am gross and perverted
I'm obsessed 'n deranged
I have existed for years
But very little had changed

I am the tool of the Government
And industry too
For I am destined to rule
And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious
But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious
With the stuff that I say

I am the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I am the slime oozin' out
From your TV set

You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you
Don't go for one will heed you

Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold

That's right, folks.. Don't touch that dial
Well, I am the slime from your video
Oozin' along on your livingroom floor
I am the slime from your video

Can't stop the slime, people, lookit me go

“That’s right folks don’t touch that dial”
It’s 2020 and Zappa’s music is as iconoclastic as ever.

Nice one, Susan, although I'm not really a Zappa fan.

This song is a prime example of just how relevant his music is today! There will never be another like him!


Except maybe his son Dweezil.

Kevyn Smith

Rage Against the Machine was spot on also!


got suspended for 3 days for writing these lyrics on the chalkboard in 8th grade :D
