Ten foot tall and the nurse stuck a needle in my arm
Well Uncle Doc's nurse use a needle with ungodly charm
Walkin' down the hall the dentist LOOMED through the door
I Saw an X-Ray of a girl passing gas
The one shot theory got a query things got rolling at last
Hey, HEY hey daddy, why die in the war
Jesus Hitler Buddha Santa Mary Klaus Barbie (Rice Bore?)
Well Ben got arrested and the sky was the ocean that day
Words got twisted and history didn't know what to say
God dog sex death life and now I'm feeling old
These images were conjured up by talking on the telephone
I Saw an X-Ray of a girl passing gas
Oh my God it seems like just the other day
But it might have been one hundred years before
And I know there is no other way
We only have to wonder what it's for

    General CommentSaw Katie Couric get a colonoscopy on the news. Maybe this is where she got the idea. As usual Gibby is way ahead of the curve.

    General CommentGreat song, one of the first BS songs that's actually friendly to the ear.

    A meaning? Lol, try some psychedelic drugs maybe?

    My InterpretationThis song is AMAZING! I truly believe that its one of their best songs, musically. The words are again, Psychedelically oriented. “These images were conjured up while talking on the telephone” is the answer to the question. Their just images while talking on the phone and written down later, probably while tripping out. Everyone reading lyrics by the Surfers who have written poems or thoughts themselves (while tripping on psychedelic drugs) should understand that a lot of times the meaning is only behind the mind of the writer. The music is where it’s at and this song is GENIUS!

    General CommentAre YOU latrophobic? Just think of this song; laugh and scream like Gibby during your tests, procedures, and surgeries; and soon enough, they'll be afraid of YOU! }:) The questionable "Rice Bore" lyrics above are either "Christ Moore" (not sure who "Moore" could be, but it reminds me of "Marilyn Moore," by Sonic Youth), or, "Christ, more" (sounds kinky).
