(Gene Simmons, Frank Zappa)

Frank:
"Alright kids, here's a real rock 'n roll song"

[Verse]
Frank says...
If everyone says your hair's too long
Or else it's far too short...
Don't ever afford yourself for anyone else of course
If anyone says, when you play guitar,
It's always much too loud
You can tell them to stick it
You won't get far if you're not far out

[Chorus:]
My black tongue's coming right out of me
Drowning out my misery
Black tongue is coming out
My black tongue's always hanging out of me (that's right)
I'm going down in history
Guitar, one time...

[Verse]
Frank says...
If everyone says you're much too old
You're out of style...
Just tell them you're doing their sister and mommy every once in a while
And if everyone says you've got a big mouth,
You refuse to shut-up
Just tell them to kiss your behind
Just tell them to kiss your behind

[Chorus:]
My black tongue's coming right out of me
Drowning out my misery
Black tongue is out
My black tongue's always hanging out of me
I'm going down in history
Guitar...

[Guitar Solo]

Black tongue is out...

Frank:
"Listen, you guys don't give a shit what we play, you just wanna make noise"

My black tongue's coming right out of me
Drowning out my misery
My black tongue's always hanging out of me
Going down in history
My black tongue's always hanging out of me
Drowning out my misery
My black tongue's always hanging out of me
Going down in history

Frank:
"Take notice of what these weirdos are saying, what they are doing. You never know, they might know something you don't know, huh?"
