These Burgers are Crazy

154 words on

For future reference I have to mention the gem of a song that is The Moldy Peaches' These Burgers. There Adam Green and Kimya Dawson alternate in singing the following lyrics:

When the world's got you down,
Rainy Sundays, sunny town,
Tropicana, canned food,
Botulism, damaged goods.

See the hipsters in the park,
Their hairs are styled, their clothes are dark.
Prefab molded hamburgers,
I don't want a bite of yours.

These burgers are crazy.
These burgers are crazy.
These burgers are crazy.
These burgers are crazy.

They don't like you, never will,
They slip you the happy pill,
Assimilation, so they think,
Send you to the naughty shrink.
You just tell them lies lies,
Paranoia. Bugs and flies.
You don't like them, never did.
You don't like them, never did.

These burgers are crazy.
These burgers are crazy.
These burgers are crazy.
These burgers are crazy.

The Moldy Peaches, These Burgers

I haven’t heard the song in question, but I’d bet the unknown word in line 4 is probably botulism.

Sounds about correct…

Gets dictionary – ah well, this is a German word as well, just that we also have a non-Latin (?), i.e. proper German version for it.

i love this song! in the second verse where you have a question mark its “assimilation, so they think” instead of “assimilation is all they think” minor mistake but yeah just tellin ya :p

The moldy peaches kick ass! This is what music is about. Just expressing your thoughts and feelings through song.

Moldy Peaches are a fantastic band, especially the double singing… thats just raw expression. Steak for chicken is undoubtably the best peaches song.
