Frank Zappa – The London Cab Tape lyrics

(M. O. I.)

Probably November 29, 1970]

Howard: This fucking guy is flipped out, man! I'll be locked up!
?: Who, me. .. ?
Yeah, you too!
?: It was anti-semitic of me to bring it up
?: Why, you don't like Jews, man?
?: Let me make it perfectly clear, [...] I don't mind that you are Jew, stay out. .. Take your Bar Mitzvah man, and shove it
?: I never had a Bar Mitzvah
?: You ever had a Yamulka, man?
?: No, I wore one once, though. ..
?: I knew it
?: What's wrong? You don't like 'em, man? That was [...] my cowboy hat. ..
?: [...] Just keep it out of my way, man, I don't wanna see that Yamulka on stage ever. ..
?: Uh. .. Well, I don't know, man, that'd be sorta neat, not in this group of course, but tomorrow
?: Alright, alright. ..
?: Howard Kaylan World!
?: The Yamulka
Fz: Ha ha ha!
: Dear Frank, thanks for paying a hundred twenty three dollars for my meal in Amsterdam, which I hated!
?: I mean it, man
?: I really enjoy playing in your little own ensemble
?: For a day or so
?: Thanks for bringing a little slice of sunshine into my life
?: Thanks for showing me how sh. .. Shitty the music business could really be, I thought I knew
?: Thanks for make [...] worst bass player in the world
?: After six months with the Mothers I figured I've lost everything I've ever had
