  • Wynona's got herself a big brown beaver and she shows it off to all her friends.
    One day, you know, that beaver tried to leave her, so she caged him up with cyclone fence.
    Along came Lou with the old baboon and said "I recognize that smell,Smells like seven layers,That beaver eatin' Taco Bell!".

    "Now Rex he was a Texan out of New Orleans and he travelled with the carnival shows.
    He ran bumper cars, sucked cheap cigars and he candied up his nose.
    He got wind of the big brown beaver So he thought he'd take himself a peek,but the beaver was quick and he grabbed him by the kiwis,
    and he ain't pissed for a week.(And a half!)

    Wynona took her big brown beaver and she stuck him up in the air, said "I sure do love this big brown beaver and I wish I did have a pair.
    Now the beaver once slept for seven days And it gave us all an awful fright,
    So I tickled his chin and I gave him a pinch and the bastard tried to bite me. Wynona loved her big brown beaverAnd she stroked him all the time.
    She pricked her finger one day and it occurred to her she might have a porcupine. Writer/s: LES CLAYPOOL, REID L. III LALONDE, TIMOTHY W. ALEXANDER

  • Lbhmiller from Pensacola, FlOysterhead who I’m going to see in. Atlanta! Can’t wait hope everybody is jealous!
  • Stukka63 from St.augustine,fla.Les Claypool n the Ox from The Who are the best bass players ever.
    Claypool is fast. But so is the Ox. Just completely different music styles.
  • Russell from London Ontario CanadaThe song is based on Claypool's experience walking through a trail from his boat to his vehicle and a big brown beaver came out from the bushes and scared the ba-jesus out of Les, and made up and wrote a story about it. True Story. It was in an interview. The song was only meant to be a very short song like Sathington Willaby. But they decided to take some riffs from a couple of other songs they were working on and added the pieces together then Vuaaalaaa low and behold the whole arrangement along with his fictional story based on a beaver that scarred the s--t out of him.
