Spoken: Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.
Electric word life. That means forever and that's a mighty long time, but I'm here to tell you there's something else: the afterworld. A world of never ending happiness;
you can always see the sun, day or night.So when u call up that shrink in Beverly Hills, you know the one - Dr. Everything'llBeAlright, instead of asking him how much of your time is left, ask him how much of your mind, baby 'cuz in this life things are much harder than in the afterworld. In this life, you're on your own.

And if de-elevator tries to bring you down
Go crazy - punch a higher floor

If you don't like the world you're living in
Take a look around you
At least you got friends

You see I called my old lady
For a friendly word
She picked up the phone
Dropped it on the floor
(panting) is all I heard

Are we gonna let de-elevator
Bring us down
Oh, no let's go!

Let's go crazy
Let's get nuts
Let's look for the purple banana
'til they put us in the truck, let's go!

We're all excited
But we don't know why
Maybe it's 'cus
We're all gonna die

And when we do (when we do)
What's it all for (what's it all for)
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door

Tell me, are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down
Oh, no let's go!

Let's go crazy
Let's get nuts
Look for the purple banana
'til they put us in the truck, let's go!

C'mon baby
Let's get nuts
Yeah
Crazy

Let's go crazy

Are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down
Oh, no let's go!
Go crazy

I said let's go crazy (go crazy)
Let's go, let's go
Go
Let's go

Dr. Everything'llBeAlright
Is gonna make everything wrong
Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill
Hang tough children

He's coming
He's coming
Coming

Take me away!

    General CommentThe monologue sort of startled me at first, but I love it. A lot of these 'b-sides' are really decent - heck, I prefer them over Light Grenades. Maybe because a few of these were from before the Light Grenades period and are just seeing the light of day?
