OUTSIDE NOW LYRICS, FRANK ZAPPA Lyrics:
JOE:
(Somewhat exhausted)

These exectutives have plooked the fuck out of me
And there’s still a long time to go before I’ve
Paid my debt to society
And all I ever really wanted to do was
Play the guitar ‘n bend the string like
Reent-toont-teent-toont-teent-toont-teenooneenoonee
I’ve got it
I’ll be sullen and withdrawn
I’ll dwindle off into the twilight realm
Of my own secret thoughts
I’ll lay back here ’til dawn
In a semi-catatonic state
And dream of guitar notes
That would irritate
An executive kinda guy . . .

And sure enough JOE dreams up a few of those guitar notes that every
executive despises . . . those low ones . . . every exec knows it’s
only the records with the high squeally ones that get to be hits (except
for Duane Eddy) .. .

Well, I guess that one did the trick
If they only coulda heard it
Half-a-dozen of ’em woulda strangled
While they was suckin’ on each other’s dick
But that was just a bunch of imaginary
Notes I played
Just a little extra somethin’
To keep me goin’ from day to day
That’s okay
I’ll be gettin’ outta here pretty soon
Then I won’t have to live
In this ugly fuckin’ room
Can’t wait to see
I can’t wait to see what it’s like
On the outside now . . .
etc., etc., etc.

And JOE just lays there, dreaming imaginary guitar notes for years on end,
until finally they let him out . . .
