  • I want a nasty little Jewish Princess
    With long phony nails and a hairdo that rinses
    A horny little Jewish Princess
    With a garlic aroma that could level Tacoma
    Lonely inside
    Well, she can swallow my pride

    I want a hairy little Jewish Princess
    With a brand new nose, who knows where it goes
    I want a steamy little Jewish Princess
    With over-worked gums, who squeaks when she cums
    I don't want no troll
    I just want a Yemenite hole

    I want a darling little Jewish Princess
    Who don't know shit about cooking and is arrogant looking
    A vicious little Jewish Princess
    To specifically happen with a ?-pee that's snapin'
    All up inside I just want a princess to ride

    Alright, back to the fop... everybody twist!

    I want a funky little Jewish Princess
    A grinder; a bumper, with a pre-moistened dumper
    A brazen little Jewish Princess
    With titanic tits, and sand-blasted zits
    She can even be poor
    So long as she does it with four on the floor (Vapor-lock)

    I want a dainty little Jewish Princess
    With a couple of sisters who can raise a few blisters
    A fragile little Jewish Princess
    With Romanian thighs, who weasels 'n' lies
    For two or three nights
    Won't someone send me a princess who bites
    Won't someone send me a princess who bites
    Won't someone send me a princess who bites
    Won't someone send me a princess who bites Writer/s: Frank Zappa

  • Ebineezer Screwge from LaIm Jewish and think the song is hilarious. All of you sensitive bozos go and get a life.
  • Totally Unrelated from Elsewherewhat about differentiating between Zappa, the author, and the fictional narrator who is telling his fantasies in his lyric, who is no more real than Bobby Brown in "Bobby Brown Goes Down" is?
    What about the song is a scathing let-down to the fictional character whose dirty fantasies are entirely made up of perjorative, overused stereotypes?
    It´s the narrator, who is looking for a jewish girlfriend, who is exposed as being deeply misogynistic and antisemitic, and full of stale stereotypes, not neccessarily F. Zappa himself.
    Is it a work of fine art? Probably not. Is it tasteless? Maybe. Original, clever and creative? I don´t know. Funny? yeah, occasionally. Adolescent and rude? certainly. A sure sign of Zappas secret evil bloodlust and anti.humanism? No, I don´t think so. Can ppl feel offended by it? Obviously. That´s Frank, the Imp for you.
  • Skuff from Usa I’m catholic, and he wrote another song about catholic girls. It doesn’t bother me. It’s a joke. And I think it’s funny. I’m not sure it’s anti Semitic. It’s mocking a non existent person for stereotypical characterizations.
  • Kramo from Toronto, CanadaSorry. I thought Zappa was a one-note nudge nudge, wink wink...I'm so clever...no talent. And this is anti-Semitic. How come he never wrote a song called Jungle Bunny...with lyrics about how black people smell and can't swim? Oh...that would have been a riot too I guess.
  • Suziecreamchease from Newmarket, United KingdomI was not that impressed when I first heard this song, but since finding out about all of the s--t that the anti-defamation league threw at it, I suddenly love it. Gary above does not seem to realize that Zappa did have a poke at just about everyone - with Jews and girls - with some genuine affection. With Christians and bigots with more of an edge. The more they hated it, the more he loved to do it. "Dead Girls of London" was a classic.
  • Jeff B from Boston, MaOh, please. I'm Jewish and while I was offended by the song the first few times I heard it I eventually learned to classify it with the hundreds of infantile lyrics Zappa wrote once he broke up the original Mothers. During the 70s and 80s, Zappa was the hero of sexually-started, MAD magazine reading teenagers who thought he was so amazingly clever. As you grow older, and stop listening to the lyrics, you hear Zappa's strengths, which were his ability to write and arrange fantastic melodies. Besides, many people have written songs just as offensive to ethnic group. Just listen to Lou Reeds "I Wanna Be Black" for a good example.
  • Gary from Monroe Township, NjThis is a terribly biased article which goes to great lengths to defend Frank Zappa at his immature worst and to paint the anti-defamation league as some kind of extremist organization. How about just admitting that Frank Zappa as talented as he was could also be immature and highly offensive. Every artist has high points and low points. This would not be one of the points one would want to use as an example of Frank Zappa making an intelligent statement with music. Can you imagine the outcry if he wrote a similarly derogatory song about African American women? It's amazing the way people feel the need to make excuses for him. These lyrics go well beyond simply poking some fun or using humorous sarcasm. They are venomous. And furthermore it is highly inappropriate for the writer/composer of this article to go well beyond discussing the song into an indictment of the anti defamation league claiming that they are not what their title suggests and suggesting that they would find anti semitism in a egg cup. The song is very offensive it's just that simple and all of the rationalizing and qualifying and trying to discredit the people who took action against it won't change that. These are not songfacts these are song distortions
  • Michelle from S, PaI am a 16-year-old Jewish girl. And I love this song. Oh, and wouldn't say that I am at all a spoiled brat.
  • Thomas from Somerville, AlI am a Southern man and fit most of the stereotypes. I drink, smoke, and eat fried foods. I live on a mountain in Alabama so I probably won't get washed away by global warming but, I will sit on my mountain with my guns and my generator listening to Zappa and drinking homemade whiskey and smoking home rolled cigarettes..thank you very much!!
  • Stainer from Nyc, NyFrank would be so proud of the discussion he sparked
  • Floyd from Carrboro, NcDarrel, I was just pointing out that there are plenty of Jewish girls out there that are not rich and spoiled. While there certainly are "Jewish Princess's" out there, not every female Jew is one.

    I would also like to acknowledge that there are no doubt a considerable amount of southerners who are addicted to the previously mentioned items. This is another stereotype which does not apply to 90% of North Carolinians. It doesn't really matter though, because even open minded people like myself make fun of southerners.

    Also, I am not really named Floyd. However, you did guess correctly that I'm a pacifist. I'm much to young to be a hippy. I believe that to love everyone would be a great accomplishment, and would no doubt make the world a better place, but it's impossible. I do not love everyone, and neither does anyone else.

    Also, be making my analogy into an analogy, you pretty much just repeated what I said.

    If you would like an explanation of what I meant, here it is:
    There are spoiled Jewish girls out there. Not all Jewish girls are like that. There are also ignorant pricks named Darrel out there. Not all people named Darrel are ignorant pricks.

    Good Day.
  • Darrell from EugeneOK Floyd, saying that your comment that all people named Darrell are ignorant pricks is not the same as me saying that all Jewish girls are spoiled brats, but all Southerners, like yourself are addicted to alcohol, tobacco and fried food, and you will probably be washed away by global warming. I, on the other hand, am safe and sound in Nevada, having left Eugene, Oregon in 2006.
  • Darrell from EugeneFloyd, saying that all people named Darrell are ignorant pricks is like saying that all people named Floyd are pacifist hippy love-everyone softies.
  • Floyd from Carrboro, NcSaying that all Jewish girls are spoiled brats is like me saying that all people named Darrell are ignorant pricks. It isn't true, but certainly applies to a few of them.
  • Darrell from EugeneMischa, all Jewish girls are like that. Think about Chandra Levy and Monica Lewinsky and the silver spoons that were in their mouths when they were born. I know several more just like them.
