I Am the Slime
(Frank Zappa)

Lyrics & Music: Zappa

I am gross and perverted 
I'm obsessed 'n deranged
I have existed for years 
But very little had changed 
I am the tool of the Government 
And industry too 

For I am destined to rule 
And regulate you I may be vile and pernicious 
But you can't look away
I make you think I'm delicious 
With the stuff that I say I am the best you can get 
Have you guessed me yet? 

I am the slime oozin' out 
From your TV set  
You will obey me while I lead you  
And eat the garbage that I feed you  
Until the day that we don't need you  
Don't got for help...no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled 
It has been stuffed into my mold 
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold 
That's right, folks.. 
Don't touch that dial 

Well, I am the slime from your video 
Oozin' along on your livin'room floor 
I am the slime from your video 
Can't stop the slime,
people, lookit me go
