Hungry Freaks Daddy
Frank Zappa Lyrics


Mr. America, walk on by your schools that do not teach
Mr. America, walk on by the minds that won't be reached
Mr. america try to hide the emptiness that's you inside
But once you find that the way you lied
And all the corny tricks you tried
Will not forestall the rising tide of hungry freaks daddy

They won't go on four no more
Great mid-western hardware store
Philosophy that turns away
From those who aren't afraid to say what's on their minds
The left behinds of the great society

Hungry freaks, daddy

Mr. America, walk on by your supermarket dream
Mr. America, walk on by the liquor store supreme
Mr. america try to hide the product of your savage pride
The useful minds that it denied
The day you shrugged and stepped aside
You saw their clothes, and then you cried
those hungry freaks, daddy

They won't go on four no more
Great mid-western hardware store
Philosophy that turns away
From those who aren't afraid to say what's on their minds
The left behinds of the great society

Stoned Meadow Of Doom

Maybe the best song they recorded. Freak Out! is surely their best record.

@Augusto Pasquier yeah I wouldn't say he stole it haha I say he "repurposed" it

Augusto Pasquier

Hahah it's this for real??? Satisfaction it's from 1965 in any case the one who stole was Zappa.

JohnAudioTech

Recorded in early 1966, Zappa was really pushing the envelope. Loved how he tore into modern culture. Oh yeah, the guitar break was really hot too.

TommyTwobats

I thought this was 1968...which is about twenty cultural light years away from 1966.l Amazing.
