Muffin Man

... seated at the table in the laboratory of the utility muffin
Research kitchen... reaching for an over sized chrome spoon he gathers an
Intimate quantity of dried muffin remnants and brushing his scapular aside
Proceeds to dump these inside of his shirt...
He turns to us and speaks:

This weekend I made a batch of muffins.



God I miss Frank Zappa!

This version is from October 28, 1977



Following are the complete lyrics, but you need to hear Mr. Zappa do it!

Of course, the guitar solo is unreal!

The muffin man is seated at the table in the laboratory of the utility muffin
Research kitchen... reaching for an over sized chrome spoon he gathers an
Intimate quantity of dried muffin remnants and brushing his scapular aside
Proceeds to dump these inside of his shirt...
He turns to us and speaks:

Some people like cupcakes better. I for one care less for them!

Arrogantly twisting the sterile canvas snoot of a fully charged icing
Anointment utensil he poots forths a quarter-ounce green rosette (oh ah yuk
Yuk... lets try that again...!) he poots forth a quarter-ounce green rosette
Near the summit of a dense but radiant muffin of his own design.
Later he says:

Some people... some people like cupcakes exclusively, while myself, I say
There is naught nor ought there be nothing so exalted on the face of gods grey
Earth as that prince of foods... the muffin!

Girl you thought he was a man
But he was a muffin
He hung around till you found
That he didn't know nuthin

Girl you thought he was a man
But he only was a-puffin
No cries is heard in the night
As a result of him stuffin

Maybe not directly surf related but close and
I am busy working on a post you'll really like!
