Zig Zag Wanderer
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band Lyrics


Zig zag zig zag wanderer (rep.)
You can huff, you can puff
never know what I have found
You can zig you can zag
Whoa I'm gonna stay gonna stay around (rep.)

You can jump you can holler
Never lose what I have found
heaven's free 'cept for a dollar
you can zig you can zag
Whoa I'm gonna stay around gonna stay around

Zigzag wanderer had a zigzag child
Zigzag traveller for the mercy mile
.......(found his strength in?) and nature scene
(Chris Viard suggests "Found my Queen and Nature Scene")

Twist his face (quenched his thirst) where he never been
Zig zag wanderer (rep.)

You can dance you can prance
freeze those timbers drop some beans
Hide my shield throw away my lance
Zig zag child mercy mile
zig zag dreams zig zag dreams zig zag dreams....

Zig zag wanderer, zig zag wanderer (rep.)
You can huff, you can puff
You’ll never blow my house down
You can zig, you can zag
Ole house gonna stay, gonna stay around (rep.)
You can jump, you can holler
Never lose what ah found
Heaven’s free, ‘cept for a dollar
You can zig, you can zag
Ole house gonna stay, gonna stay around (rep.)
The zig zag wanderer had a zig zag child
Zig zag traveller fathered mercy mild
Found his Queen in Nature’s scene
Quenched his thirst where he’d never been
Zig zag wanderer (rep.)
You can dance, you can prance
These ole timbers got strong beams
Hide my shield, put away my lance
Zig zag child, mercy mild
Zig zag dreams, zig zag dreams
Zig zag
(1967)

That period in music history when it all went psychedelic. Some of the best music ever produced. No time before or since has sounded so original and been so creative.

SUPERJAM144

This album is a masterpiece. One without any recognition.

Yeah because record nerds never talk about Captain and his Beef Farts? Give me a break.

Paul Tatara

John Lennon was a fan of it.
