THE DEAD MILKMEN : BIG LIZARD [1985]

Συνεχίζοντας ερπετοπρεπώς, ακούμε το [περίπου] ομώνυμο τραγούδι από το Big Lizard In My Backyard [1985], δισκογραφικό ντεμπούτο των punk rockers από τη Φιλαδέλφεια.
Moving on serpent-wise, we hear the [proximate] title song from Philadelphia punk rockers’ debut album
[Big Lizard In My Backyard – 1989].

Big lizard in my backyard
Can’t afford to feed him anymore
Big lizard in my backyard
Bustin’ down my neighbor’s door
I bought a big lizard, only a dollar-fifty
Well, that’s pretty neat, yeah, it’s fuckin’ nifty
But I just can’t afford to feed it
And you should see the way it shits
I’ve got a big lizard in my backyard
Can’t afford to feed it anymore
Big lizard in my backyard
Bustin’ down my neighbor’s door
I was knocked outta bed
Late last night
I was woken up by the sound of dynamite
I ran downstairs to find an army man
He says “we gotta blow up those things we don’t understand!”
There’s no more big lizard in my backyard
I won’t have to feed him anymore
No more lizard in my backyard
They shipped his ass to El Salvador!
Was knocked outta bed
Late last night
I was woken up by the sound of dynamite
I ran downstairs to find an army man
He said “we gotta blow up those things we don’t understand!”
Big lizard in my backyard
Can’t afford to feed it anymore
Big lizard in my backyard
Bustin’ down my neighbor’s door
I bought a big lizard, only a dollar-fifty
Well, that’s pretty neat, yeah, it’s fuckin’ nifty
But I just can’t afford to feed it

    Cool song.
    I am surprised by the short length. It seems they went back to the 60’s…or perhaps it’s more like the Ramones, lots of short songs in a 20 minute set?
