Tripping Along The Ledge



“Tom do this, Tom do that
Tom… don’t do that
Count the cash, clean the oven
Dump the trash, oh your lovin
is a rare and a copasetic gift…”

    Am i a dirty, dirty girl to be turned on by “this broom will have to be my baby”???

    fintan, Waits used to open for Zappa and the Mothers back when he was young degenerate. He said it was the worst time of his life, he was roundly booed every night.

  4. Eoin Says:

    @ fintan mezz/Peter91 – that’s not actually Zappa on drums, is it??

    @ Gina G – !

    I won’t even speculate…

  5. Peter81 Says:

    I can’t watch that clip in work, but regardless I can safely say….No, it isn’t Zappa

  6. Colin Says:

    “Chipping” is right, it’s Chip White on drums.

    Thank you Colin – you are Google-meister extraordinaire!
