The Mothers of Invention - My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama

You know, your mama and your daddy
Saying I'm no good to you
They call me dirty from the alley
Till I don't know what to do
I get so tired of sneakin' around
Just to get to your back door
I crawled past the garbage and
Your mama jumped out, screamin'
"Don't come back no more"
I can't take it
My guitar wants to kill your mama
My guitar wants to kill your mama
My guitar wants to burn your dad
I get real mean when it makes me mad

Later I tried to call you
Your mama told me you weren't there
She told me don't bother to call again
Unless I cut off all my hair
I get so tired of sneakin' around
Just to get to your back door
I crawled past the garbage and
Your mama jumped out, screamin'
"Don't come back no more"

Later I tried to call you
Your mama told me you weren't there
She told me don't bother to call again
Unless I cut off all my hair
I get so tired of sneakin' around
Just to get to your back door
I crawled past the garbage and
Your mama jumped out, screamin'
"Don't come back no more"
My guitar wants to kill your mama
My guitar wants to kill your mama
My guitar wants to burn your dad
I get real mean when it makes me mad

"My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama" is a song written by Frank Zappa and originally recorded by The Mothers of Invention in 1969. The song was included on 1970's Weasels Ripped My Flesh, a compilation LP of sorts that included various recordings by the band from 1967 to 1969. It was also released as a single on the Bizarre and Reprise labels as "My Guitar". Despite the more conventional naming, "My Guitar" did not chart. The single version of the song was recorded in June 1969 and differs from the Weasels Ripped My Flesh recording. The album version features a longer break before the second verse is reprised, and is roughly half a minute longer. "The Central Scrutinizer", the spoken-word track that opens Act I of Joe's Garage, began life as an updated version of "My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama". Each of the songs' progressions of chords are identical.
