Kiss Your Ass Goodbye

Kiss Your Ass Goodbye

 

Written: 1971

Writers: David Jenneson, Alan Hovden.

Status: Unrecorded and unpublished

Genre and Style: Protest song parody?????

Comments: Dave: Kiss Your Ass Goodbye has the feel of a Russian Jewish folksong with a big, Glen Miller style chorus. As a satire of a hippy protest song it rails against The Establishment then dissolves into a joyous hopelessness. It was in some way inspired by the work of Robert Crumb, the 1960’s San Francisco counter culture cartoonist. His famous characters, like Mr. Natural, Flakey Foont and Schuman the Human are constantly battling The Man but seldom win, constantly ending up as paranoid, fucked over losers.

Comments: Al: Outrageous… reminds me of those old movies about how to prepare for nuclear attack we had to watch as kids!

 

You all know about rock and roll

And you remember how to do the twist

I told you about the boog-a-loo

And you went and put it on your list

Now you want a new dance

Here’s one you can try

Stick your little head

Between your legs

And kiss your ass goodbye

 

Do it on the telephone

Or way down on the farm

Do it sitting all alone

With a needle in your arm

You only get one shot at life

No need to re-apply

Stick your little head

Between your legs

And kiss your ass goodbye

 

Kiss your ass goodbye

Everybody say so long

Everybody’s gonna roll on

To the bye and bye and bye

Sing a sad farewell

And give a little sigh

Nothing left to lose

Kiss your ass goodbye

 

You can do this dance of mine

To nearly any beat

Get your friends and form a line

And do it in the street

And when they slap the cuffs on you

Spit right in their eye

Then stick your little head

Between your legs

And kiss your ass goodbye

 

Someday soon I guarantee

You’ll do this famous dance

Suddenly you’ll realize

That you don’t stand a chance

They’ve got the law, the army, CIA and FBI

All you’ve got are your sweet lips

Kiss your ass goodbye

 

Kiss your ass goodbye

Everybody say so long

Everybody’s gonna roll on

To the bye and bye and bye

Sing a sad farewell

And give a little sign

Nothing left to lose

Kiss your ass goodbye.
