This song is about Frank Zappa's teenage years in Lancaster, California. The area was filled with turkey farms and is still prone to vicious sandstorms. In the tiny town of Sun Village (which was almost entirely Black and Latino and was mostly burned to the ground during race riots in the late 1960s and early 1970s), Zappa and some friends formed a group called "The Black-Outs," which played at a place called "The Village Inn & Barbecue" on Palmdale Boulevard. There was always a crowd of drunken individuals who would dance in a stumbling manner, all of which are mentioned in the song.
The song was not sung by Zappa - his saxophonist and flute player Napoleon Murphy Brock sang sang it.
