"Bamboo Bimbo" as written by Gerald V. Casale and Mark Allen Mothersbaugh....
Well he caught his first whiff in the jungles
Of'nam
That slant-eyed catfish tasted better than mom
Now every single night she drops her big bomb
Cause he's a bamb00 bimbo
Those hook marks really show
Cause he's a bamboo bimb0
He went for it now everyone knows
He's a bamboo bimb0
He caught his first glance in "field and stream"
That salt water taffy was a fisherman's
Wet dream
Now every single night he's still gettin'
That big ream
Cause he's a bamboo bimb0
He fell it and everyone knows
He's a bamboo bimbo
Just a monkey with a ring in his nose
He's a bambo0 bimbo
Can't say i never told ya so
He's a bamboo bimb0
It go on and on and on

    General CommentPotentially my least favorite song....it was on Hardcore DEVO, and it's downright plain when compared to other stuff. But it's kinda funny, too.
    Might be offensive to some, but then again DEVO never cared what you thought.

    General CommentThere are some small lyric errors, it should be "he fell for it and everyone knows" in both the chorus lines. This could be about a man who likes asian women, but it may also be about a woman who baitted US soldiers and upon sleeping with them either cuts, bites, or sliced with an "internal" razor blade as some claim happened. All of these fit the idea that he fell for it, the effects are severe and lasting so everyone knows, and he discovered this woman most likely working or bathing "in feild and stream", after catching his first "whiff" ie, laying his first prostitute.
