About "Sailing The Seas Of Cheese" album:
This page contains lyrics from the album
"Sailing The Seas Of Cheese" by Primus, which was released in 1991 and consists of 6 songs.
In a town in southernmost Sicily
Lived a family too proud to be poor
In the year that fever took father away
They hastened for American shores
Now a mother and her son are standing in line
It's a cold day on Ellis Isle
And they look to the Statue of Liberty
For the boy we have American Life
Ong is a Laotian refugee
I just can't seem to blend into society
I have no hope for this dim simplicity of law and order
By whose rules
I see no rhyme in the reason
I hold no hope for this holy treason of love and so soft
By whose standards, by whose standards
They tell me, they tell me, they tell me
They tell me, they tell me, they tell me, they tell me
Who are they, who is they?
Here Come The Bastards
Here they come
Here come the bastards
I heard it from a confident -
Who heard it form a confidant
They're definately on their way
There's one with this idea
Something about a hammer head shark
Nosehairs and flatus
Best keep your distance because
Here they come here come the bastards
Jerry Was A Race Car Driver
Fire her up man
Jerry was a race car driver, he drove so god damned fast
He never did win no checkered flags but he never did come in last
Jerry was a race car driver, he'd say "El solo number one"
With a bocephus sticker on his 442, he'd light 'em up just for fun
Captain Pierce was a fireman, Richmond engine number three
I'll be a wealthy man when I get a dime for all the things that man taught to me
Captain Pierce was a strong man, strong as any man alive
Sgt. Baker is my name
I'm gonna teach you how to play the game
Suddenly it appears to me
You got a bit much dignity
For your own good, boy
Yes sir, yes sir.
I will rape your personality
Pummel you with my own philosophy
Tommy The Cat
"I remember as it were a meal ago"
Said Tommy the Cat as he reeled back to clear whatever foreign
Matter may have nestled it's way into His mighty throat.
Many a fat alley rat had met it's demise while staring point
Blank down the cavernous barrel of this awesome prowling machine.
Truly a wonder of nature this urban predator.
Tommy the cat had many a story to tell,
But it was a rare occasion such as this that he did.
