"The Boogie Boogie Woogie" as written by and Don Van Vliet....
Oh that buggy boogie woogie sweeps me off my feet
What this world needs is a good retreat
What this world needs is a good two dollar room
'n a good two dollar broom
One day I was sweepin' down by the wall
I bumped a mama spider 'n the babies begin' to fall
Off o' my broom
Now I gotta keep on sweepin' 'n sweepin'
'fore they fill the room
Now that buggy boogie woogie sweeps me off my feet
I gotta keep on sweepin' 'n sweepin'
Seems like I could keep on sweepin' 'n sweepin'
'n there's still too many feet
What this world needs is a good two dollar room
'n a good two dollar broom
What this world needs is a good two dollar room
'n a good two dollar broom
Seems like I could keep on sweepin' 'n sweepin'
'n there's still too many feet
Well the way I must be sweepin'
Must be with too many feet
Ah, 'n I'll still keep on sweeping 'n sweepin'
'n there's still too many feet

    General CommentWrong title - his is Dropout Boogie.

    Someone ought to write up the lyrics to The Buggy Boogie Woogie (the "overpopulation" song with the brushes)

    General Commentrecalls another song to me "Bed Bug Blues" by Lightning Slim but Beefheart has the human population in mind " too many feet .." instead of spiders, some nice brushes too,
