‘Help I’m a Rock’ – Lyrics that are hilarious, disturbing, a send-up and have a political and social meaning.

 

Frank Zappa cannot be classified. He is satirical, political and a disrespecter of everyone and everything. He sees the absurdity in it and exposes it. He sees the hypocrisy and exposes it. He finds the humour and brings it to the fore. He denies anything is worth doing or has any effect but I don’t believe him. He enjoys doing it.

He was going to stand for President. I would have voted for him if I had been allowed. I’d rather have Frank in control than any of the politicians we have.

Frank is not a Rock musician. His music is undefinable just like him.

“Help, I’m A Rock”
Help, I’m a rock
Help, I’m a rock
Help, I’m a rock
Help, I’m a rock

Help, I’m a rock!
Help, I’m a rock!
Help, I’m a rock!
Somebody!
Help, I’m a rock!
Please!
Help, I’m a rock!
Please!
Help, I’m a rock!
Please!
Help, I’m a rock!
Wow!
Help, I’m a rock!
Wow!
Help, I’m a rock!
Help, I’m a rock!
Somebody helps me

Wow, man, it’s a drag being a rock
(Help, I’m a rock)
(Help, I’m a rock)
(Help, I’m a rock)
I wish I was anything but a rock
Heck, I’d even like to be a policeman
Hey, you know what?
You know maybe if I practice, you know
Maybe if I pass my driving test
I could get a gig drivin’ that bus that pick the freaks up
In front of Ben Frank’s, right?

Help, I’m a cop!
Help, I’m a cop!
Help, I’m a cop!
Help, I’m a cop!
(Help, I’m a rock)
Help, I’m a cop!
(Help, I’m a rock)

It’s a drag being a cop
I think I’d rather be the mayor

Always wondered what I was gonna be when I grew up, you know
Always wondered whether or not . . . whether or not I could make it
You know, in society, because,
You know, it’s a drag when you’re rejected
So I tore the cover off a book of matches
And I sent in
And I got this letter back that said . . .
