Ode to the original dadaists.



Alfred Jarry opens the door
All the kids jump out on the floor
Goes into a Callaway dance
Knocks the doctor out of his trance
Ubu claims that he is the king
Disembraining with his machine

Doctor Faustroll, Bosse-de-Nage
Cruise through time in camouflage
Tristan Tzara’s up on the stage
Huelsenbeck goes into a rage
Negro rhythms beat on the drum
Dog-faced baboon “ha-ha” hum

Let’s all do the Big Fish Swing
All we do is Big Fish Swing
Big Fish Swing, the Big Fish Swing
We all do the Big Fish Swing
Lyrics ©1982 Andrew L. Jackson


from Zruism: Zru Vogue 1980​-​84, released January 1, 1998
