"A Apolitical Blues" as written by and Lowell George....
Well my telephone was ringing
And they told me it was chairman Mao
Well my telephone was ringing
And they told me it was chairman Mao
You got to tell him anything
'Cause I just don't want to
Talk to him now

I have a apolitical blues and
It's the meanest blues of all
I have a apolitical blues and
It's the meanest blues of all
I don't care if you're John Wayne
I just don't want to take no calls
No calls

    General CommentCredit Lowell G with one of the funnier lines in a rock song -- possibly showing the sardonic influence of being a member of F Zappa's band for some years -- "I have a apolitical blues, and it's the meanest blues of all." As if being adverse to politics is the worst thing that can happen to a guy, worse than all the things that blues songs have been written about for 100 years. Plus, the mere use of "apolitical" (or other multi-syllabic terms) in a song lyric is a delight in itself.
