We was a-d-d-d-drivin' d-downtown L.A., About a-midnightb hour And it almost be -be -blew my mind, I got caught in a coloured shower. All the lights were a t-t-twinkling on Snset, I saw a sign in the sky It said, "T-t-t-trip a t-trip, I trip,trip," I couldn't keep up up if I tried. Ah, we stepped down to reality company To get some instant sleep And the driver turned, I said, "Welcome back" He smiled and he said, "Beep beep." What goes n? Chic-a-chick. What goes on? I really want to know. What goes on all around me, What goes on? I really want to know.
When in should come-a my dream woman, She got sequins in her hair, Like she stepped out off a Fellini film, She sat in a white straw chair But I thought I'd take a second look Just to see what I could see And my scene had popped out like little bubble does, There was nobody there but me. I sai, "Girl, you driunk a lot of drink-me, But you ain't in Wonderland You know I might-a be there to greet you, child, When your trippin' ship touches the sand." What goes on? Chick-a-chick. What goes on I really want to know. What goes on? Chick-a-chick. What goes on I really want to know.
A silver goblet of wine is-ato be Held in a bejewelled glove And the knights they toast the tournament, The falcons they fly above. And the queenwill drink of the dew tonight But the jester she cries alone, Because Merlin he spoke of an instant spell To make the devil's white knights moan And-a all and all, the seagull said, "As I look to where I've been, The whole human race Has a-taken far too much Methedrine." What goes on? Chick-a-chick. What goes on? I really want to know. Whaaat goes on? So near What goes on? I really want to know.
Yeah well, come on.
We sat in a velvet jewel case With sparkles everywhere, And Julian sat on a diamond ring And-a talked of the days gone by. We spoke of a common kaleidoscope And the pros and the cons of Zen And he spoke and-a said for a piece of cake He really did have a yen. Bobby Dylan he sat "the Mad Hatter", A broken hour glass in his hand, And-a Joannie sat in a white lace Looking cool with a black lace fan. What goes on? chick-a-chick. What goes on? I really want to know. What goes on? Please tell me. What goes on? I really want to know.

"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
The first version of The Beatles "Helter Skelter" was a 27 minute jam, so you can imagine what Ringo was going through pounding away all that time. To convince the guys that he needed a break, he screamed, "I've got blisters on my fingers!" This was included on the fadeout.
