"Pure Denizen of the Citizens Band" as written by and Charles Thompson....
I wanna ask you fellows
Why do you shut me out?
When I've driven every place
That they call land
I talk plain talk
I've seen the moon sittin' on the road, and
And I don't eat no chateaubriands

And I drive my car
Under same stars
Where the miles are
Come back I demand
Dear gentlemen
Please let me in
I don't know how I can
Make you understand

I'm a pure denizen of the Citizens Band
I'm a pure denizen of the Citizens Band
I'm a pure denizen of the Citizens Band
I'm a pure denizen of the Citizens Band

Hey friend, know what I'd do
If I was makin' the bucks
I'd move into a place
Where all they had was trucks
'Cause there's one thing I can't stand
There's one thing that I cannot stand
One thing I cannot stand
Can't stand, cannot stand, can't stand

    General CommentFrank Black used to like to drive himself around on tour in his Cadillac. This song seems like it is about trying to talk to the truckers on the citizens band (CB) radio and being shut out because he's not a trucker. He tries to justify by saying he "talks plain talk", drives as much as they do and isn't stuck up "don't eat no Chateaubriand". It's a funny song.

    General CommentMy experience with Frank Black songs is usually that they don't make any sense at first. However, then I learn some new information, (like in this case citizen's band means CB radio,) and the song makes perfect sense.
