Information

"...but soon it explains what it means by 'the Funky Alfonso'" appears to reference the introduction to Frank Zappa's song "Father O’Blivion" (1974).

This is probably a nod to Joe Chiccarelli - who worked with Zappa (recording / mixing 7 albums).

Lyrics

Time will mold you and craft you
but soon when you're looking away
it will slide up and shaft you

Oh time, oh time - no friend of mine

Mama, Mama and teddy-bear
were the first full, firm spectrum of time
now my hurling days are done
and there's no one to tell
and there's nowhere to run

Time, all blossoming clover
but soon it will say "OK, come on son - bend over"

Oh time, oh time - no friend of mine

Mama, Mama and teddy-bear
were the first full, firm spectrum of time
now my hurling days are done
and there's no one to tell
and there's nowhere to run

Time places no pressure on you
but soon it explains what it means by
'the funky alphonso'

Oh, time, oh time - no friend of mine

Mama, Mama and teddy-bear
were the first full, firm spectrum of time
but now my hurling days are done
and there is no one to tell
and there's nowhere to run

Time will send you an invoice
and you'll pay with your strength and your legs
and your sight and your voice.

Mama, Mama and teddy-bear
were the first full firm spectrum of time
but now my hurling days are done
and there is no one to tell
and there's nowhere to run.
