Lyrics

Neal Cassady drops dead

And Allen Ginsberg’s tears shampoo his beard Neal Cassady drops dead And Allen Ginsberg’s lips tighten and thin Neal Cassady drops dead And Allen Ginsberg’s hosed down in a barn Neal Cassady drops dead And Allen Ginsberg’s 'Howl' becomes a growl

Everyone has babies Babies full of rabies Rabies full of scabies Scarlet has a fever Ring’s full of ringworm Angel of distemper The little fella has got rubella Nipper full of fungus Junior full of gangrene Minor's melanoma Tyke full of gripe Whippersnapper scurvy Urchin made of acne Get that thing away from me

Victim or life’s adventurer: which of the two are you? Victim or life’s adventurer: which of the two are you?
