Fifty-Fifty
Frank Zappa Lyrics


Well, my dandruff is loose
An' my breath is chartreuse
I know I ain't cute
An' my voice is ka-poot

But that's awright people
I'm just crazy enough to sing to you
Any old way

I figure the odds be fifty-fifty
I just might have some thing to say

Ain't gonna sing you no love song
How my heart is all sore
Will not beg your indulgence
Cause you heard it before

But that's awright people
I'm just crazy enough to sing to you
Any old way

I figure the odds be fifty-fifty
I just might have some thing to say

I have taken your time
I have sung you my song
Ain't no great revelation
But it wasn't too long

But that's awright people
I'm just crazy enough to sing to you
Any old way

I figure the odds be fifty-fifty
I just might have some thing to say

Well, my dandruff is loose
And my breath is chartreuse
I know I ain't cute
And my voice is kaput
But that's alright, people
I'm just crazy enough to sing to you
Any old way

I figure the odds be fifty-fifty
I just might have something to say

I ain't gonna sing you no love song
How my heart is all soft
Will not beg your indulgence
Cause you heard it before
And that's alright, people
I'm just crazy enough to sing to you
Any old way

I figure the odds be fifty-fifty
I just might have something to say
In my pants

Now I've taken your time
I have sung you my song
Ain't no great revelation
But it wasn't too long
And that's alright, people
I'm just crazy enough to sing to you
Any old way

I figure the odds be fifty-fifty
I just might have something to say

This one is like a Zappa response to Return to Forever, and pretty dope, at least to me. George Duke Zappa is the Zappa I like best.

George duke's solo's like getting slung fast and hard in a tilt o whirl at a cheesy carnival operated by drunken carneys.

Check out George live with Billy Cobham in "Stratus"...unreal.

Kathy Erickson

That is so damn I'm amusing.

Damn - George Duke smokes on this. IMO his playing on this song is as good as Emerson's on Karn Evil 9. Very underrated keyboard player.

The entire album is full of innovative, catchy songs that bend genres and minds. And the LP art, what can you say, Zappa at his absolute finest, surrounded by some of the most talented musicians of their generation.

50-50 review hopefully with the tools of much chutzpah. with revelation revealed to the best of my ability by HCT. as follows, a analysis of excellence and discernment while calling those things as they appear from the perspective of the 3rd heaven where only God and angels and the Father Son and the Holy Spirit abide and provide wisdom to me and you I might add. as .......follows dudes and dudettes catch the fire of revelation in the knowledge of Him and speak mysteries and oracles at all times. Be ye perfect as your father in heaven is perfect. Frank Zappa is a filthy translator of truth in music. The nuggets of revelation are few and far between. Go figure...sela... therefore , we glean truth in the message warily and with knowledge and wisdom... Iron sharpens iron and diamonds sharpen iron in order to create nuggets of purity in song and message. We love Franks discernment of praiseworthy message in that he chooses occasionally carefully his musicians according to their eternal talent portrayals. Jean luk ponty is hearing from heaven in his talent as is this drummer billy cob-lam ma bee? the Frankenstein style keyboards reminiscent of castles in Germany reveal the breath of satanically inspired atmosphere albeit entertaining to the nth degree. The screaming moaning of Frank Zappas guitar is but a reflection of a sad desperate state of mind willing to endanger others, in its quest for fulfillment. Coupled together we see a excellent miraculous presentation of evangelical music presented attractively by a humble screaming spokesman in unorthodox delivery.. He who has eyes to hear let him hear. I have taken your time i have sung you my song aint not great revelation but it wasent too long and thats alright people...."just crazy enough to sing to you any old way." I figure the odds be 50 50 that i might just have something to say to you.
