Frank Zappa – Tuna Fish Promenade lyrics

This town
This town
Is a Sealed Tuna Sandwich
Sealed Tuna Sandwich
With the wrapper glued
It's by baloney on the rack
It goes for 40 cents a whack
It's just a place for us to play
To help us pay
The cost of the tickets back to L. A.
The cost of the tickets back to L. A.
The cost of the tickets back to L. A.

All the people in the Sandwich Town
Think the place is great
What if part of it's crumbling down?
Most of them prob'ly won't be 'round. ..

They'll either be dead
Or moved to San Francisco
(Where everybody thinks they're Heavy Business. ..
But it's just a Tuna Sandwich from another catering service. ..)
