Krsna walking down the street
Touching me with lotus feet
Going to talk to Radharani
Going to ask her for her $

Hare Krsna (Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare)
Hare Krsna
Hare Krsna (Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare)
Hare Krsna

Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna
Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama
Rama Rama, Hare Hare

    General CommentHaving had some rather close experiences with Hare Krishnas, I find this song very amusing. Bob Mould must have studied a bit to know who Radharani is, which makes it all the better.

    "Zen Arcade" is full of 60's influence - I've always thought "Pink Turns to Blue" could have been a Nuggets classic if it wasn't 15 years too late. "Hare Krishna" bears a striking resemblance to the Strangeloves' "I Want Candy," which was a 60's pop hit. (Other than that though, the rest of the album bears resemblance to little of ANYTHING...except pure genius!)

    General Commentyeah its pure genius, i love the whole zen arcade album, its one of the greatest 80ies albums, and in my opinion probably one of the best albums ever

    General CommentBesides what's already listed, the rest of the lyrics are the Hare Krishna Maha mantra which goes;

    Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
    Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
    Hare Rama Hare Rama
    Rama Rama Hare Hare

    I don't know what it all means, I just know what it is because of this song...

    My InterpretationThis is obvious blasphemy and is very offensive in all respects........
