This is a GREAT song! its one song you can compare to Albuquerque, because it has a ton of random lyrics that are hilarious! So this is the topic for Generic Blues.

The song itself isn't so bad. I just don't listen to it all that much because it's on Disc 3 of the Permanent Record and I haven't listened to that in yonks.

Well, it's also on the UHF soundtrack. Don't you have a copy yet?
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!

I can't believe I didn't see this topic! I love this song!

My favorite line is the lonely child line! It just sounds like an authentic blues line already!

According to the Permanent Record booklet, BB King says it's one of his all time favorite blues songs. That would be so cool if true!
in a complicated song does it look like al has no head

This song had some good lines in it but he generally overexagurates the blues feel of the song and that can get annoying after a while.

I thought it was "an only child"... :huh:

I think that line sort of stands in the tradition of this gem of folklore.

Long live absurdity, and Weird Al its masterly practitioner!
