FRANK ZAPPA : CATHOLIC GIRLS [SONGS ABOUT YOUTH & CHILDHOOD]

Άλλο ένα …αμφιλεγόμενο, στην εποχή του ήδη, τραγούδι του Frank Zappa, στο αφιέρωμά μας SONGS ABOUT ΥOUTH & CHILDHOOD. Το οποίο δεν έχει λόγο να μη συνεχιστεί, έως ότου τελειώσει το σχετικό stuff – υπάρχει αρκετό ακόμη…
Από το επικό, τρίπρακτο έργο – παρακαταθήκη του
FZ, Joe’s Garage [Act I, 1979].

Another … controversial, already in its time Frank Zappa song, added to our SONGS ABOUT YOUTH & CHILDHOOD tribute. Which has no reason not to continue until the relevant stuff is finished – there’s plenty more…
From the epic, three-act
Joe’s Garage [Act I, 1979].

Catholic Girls
With a tiny little mustache
Catholic Girls
Do you know how they go?
Catholic Girls
In the Rectory Basement
Father Riley’s a fairy
But it don’t bother Mary
Catholic Girls
At the CYO
Catholic Girls
Do you know how they go?
Catholic Girls
There can be no replacement
How do they go, after the show?
All the way
(That’s right, all the way!)
That’s the way they go
Every day
(That’s right!)
And none of their mamas ever seem to know
Hip-Hip-Hooray
For all the class they show
There’s nothing like a Catholic Girl
At the CYO
When they learn to blow
They’re learning to blow
All the Catholic Boys!
Warren Cuccurullo
Catholic Boys!
Kinda young, kinda WOW!
Catholic Boys!
Vinnie Colaiuta . . .
Where are they now?
Did they all take The Vow?
Catholic Girls!
Carmenita Scarfone!
Catholic Girls!
Hey! She gave me VD!
Catholic Girls!
Toni Carbone!
With a tongue like a cow
She could make you go WOW!
VD Vowdy vootie
Right away
That’s the way they go
Every day
Whenever their mamas take them to a show
Matinee
Pass the popcorn please
There’s nothing like a Catholic Girl
With her hand in the box
When she’s on her knees
She was on her knees
My little Catholic Girl
In a little white dress
Catholic Girls
They never confess
Catholic Girls
I got one for a cousin
I love how they go
So send me a dozen
Catholic Girls
OOOOOOH!
(Well well now)
Catholic Girls
(Ma-ma-mum ma-ma-mum)
Yai-ee-ahhh!
Catholic Girls
OOOOOOH!
(Well well now)
Catholic Girls
(Ma-ma-mum ma-ma-ma-ma-mum)
Yai-ee-ahhh!
Joe had a girl friend named Mary.
They would meet each other at the Social Club.
Hold hands
And think Pure Thoughts
But one night, at the Social Club meeting…

    A challenging piece, but that’s because of the huge message. Way ahead of his time…. to this day. Still challenging!
