I was just listening to one of my favorite Guttermouth albums, and the first track, entitled “Camp Fire Girl #62”, kind of struck a chord with me (and yes the pun is intended.)

I was recently wondering why I cared what some dopey (double-entendre intended) hippy writes in her barely comprehensible, reprehensible blog.  Honestly, I couldn’t understand why her moronic ramblings awoke a fire in my head.  I wrote previously about how her musings moved me (see here, here, and here) but still could not wrap my head around how she managed it.

That is where Guttermouth comes in.

A little word change takes this love song and turns it into a lyrical expression of my inability to understand.  And now I will infect your conscience with it:

 

“She’s got the healing powers of medicinal marijuana
And she feeds herself the same ole crap she feeds to her iguana
And she won’t go to the bar
God forbid that she drive a car
And of course she will protest the war
And even though she’s an idiot

[Chorus:]
I get excited when I [read] her
You better pass me the saltpeter
Like a sailor on shore leave
Like a recent parolee
I want to [meet] her but first bathe her
She always eating echinacea
On her feet are birkenstocks
I guess my head is filled with rocks

Most of her friends are never happy
That is unless they’re bitchin’
She looks down upon my comrades like they’re carcinogen
She doesn’t know what she’s fighting for
Like a modern day conquistador
And of course she will protest the war
And even though she’s an idiot

[Chorus]

She doesn’t know what she’s fighting for
Like a modern day conquistador
And of course she will protest the war
And even though she’s an idiot
Even though she’s an idiot

[Chorus]

I guess my head is filled with rocks rocks rocks”

 

I know, it’s not exactly Shakespeare, but I love it!  If you would like to hear it, you can find a YouTube video here that features it.
