"Carbona, Not Glue" as written by and John (ramone)/colvin Cummings....
Wondering what I'm doing tonight
I've been in the closet and feel all right
Ran out of Carbona Mom threw out the glue
Ran out of paint and roach spray too
It's TV's fault why I am this way

Mom and pop want to put me away
From the early morning movie to the late late show
After it's over nowhere to go
And I'm not sorry for the things I do

My brain is stuck from shooting glue
I'm not sorry for the things I do
Carbona not glue

    General CommentExcept that it was in America that it was originally censored. Besides we have nothing but censorship in the US. Have you listened to radio lately? Tell Don Imus or Howard Stern or who is it, Opie and Anthony, that there is no censorship here. On TV you can see actual medical procedures like surgery with all the blood and guts or you can see simulations of murders and rapes, but you can't see half a nipple or the word "shit" on TV.

    General CommentCarbona was a spot remover/dry cleaning fluid for home use sold until the 90's, with similar effects to glue when inhaled. The company sued Sire Records to have the song removed from copies of The Ramones "Leave Home" LP. Great song.

    General CommentThis song caused a lot of controversy because kids in Germany were sniffing glue because of the Ramones. That's why it was taken off of the original print of the album. It's awesome we finally got to hear it!
