Use My Head For Soup
words and music by C. Stewart (Dec 3, 2015)


Gather up, your lousy friends
And do it as a group
Season up the old black pot
Use my head for soup

Feast upon your victory
My broth is bloody red
Take some good advice from a
Salt and peppered head

CHORUS......
Every contact leaves a trace
Ooooh be careful what you touch
You'll be in the slammer soooooon
I got cameras in the underbrush

When you got me in your mouth
Enjoy the soup, embrace it
And when the truth, settles it
I wonder if you'll face it

When you're dining, think of me
I hope you ba$tards choke
Using human head for soup
Is not much of a joke

Repeat Chorus.....

Happy New Year Calvin

This song is the most macabre that I've seen you do. When I read the lyric it appeared just a ghoulish tale. But when I listened to the music it seemed like more. Particularly in the last verse when you went circular and said that a song about using someone's head for soup was not a joke...which I thought that it was?

Could you add a verse and explain why the "bastards" are gathered around the pot in the first place? A little bit about who they are? What "truth?" No need to redo the music. Just lyrics.

If you consider the song complete and don't want to...that's ok too.

Hello Martin,

Thanks for tuning in, especially SO early on the 1st day of our new year.
I appreciate your comments / suggestions, etc.
I kinda liked the idea of leaving the WHY.....in question.
So, I guess it's done :-)

Ah! The old head soup song.
Very entertaining as usual, Calvin.
Personally I like the enigma part.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

My first Calvin song of the new year! Got to watch out for those aliens, they are taking over. Classic Clavinistic stuff going on here.

Hey Calvin,

Now these are some lyrics that to get the year off to a great start and frame of mind! Strange is the norm for you, but I still like your art! But maybe there is a message here that I'm not quite getting? If so, please enlighten me, or is it like Lennon said of "some" (not all) of the Beatle lyrics on their later albums--rhyming nonsense? Whatever, I always look forward to your songs!

steady-eddie.

Hi Calvin,

I like how the sentimental chord progression in the verses offsets the funny lyric. Your phrasing is fantastic on this. I like this way more than the song "Timothy" (by the guy that did the "Pina Collada Song")--in your song, you direct the cannibalism towards yourself, and that's more..um..palatable, LOL..

Mike

Calvin,

That is creepy. But creepy in a good way.
Could easily be the outro for a Friday night B movie classic horror flick.

Thanks for sharing,

Mercy! I go away for a bit and look what happens..

I like the bittersweet nature of this. Sometimes I feel very much like I've been cooked myself.

Very interesting, creepy and funny all at once. Really, this is your wheelhouse, The Ockeechobee Zappa. But very much your own voice.
