Song lyrics
Theme
The way I see it, Barry, This should be a dynamite show.

Orchestral

Surf Music
Bit of nostalga for the old folks

Dialogue
I'm advocating dark clothes
If I'm not alone
How long have I been asleep
As long as I have
Did you ever live in a drum?
No
Well then you aren't me
I only dreamed I lived in a drum
Ever since it got dark
Dreaming is hard
Yea, but with nothing over your head?
No just light over my head and underneath too
I don't think I could take it without anything over my head
M-M - ???
Well why don't you go out and see what's out there?
Well I don't know if that's what's out there.
That's a thought, if you'd like
Yes but still you can say darker and darker
I don't know what the outside of this thing looks like at all
I knew it's dark and murky
How do you get your water so dark?
Cause I'm paranoid
I'm very paranoid and the water in my washing machine turns dark out
of sympathy
Out of sympathy?
Yes
Um where can I get that?
At your local drug store
How much?
It's from Kansas

Car Dialogue
Almost chinese huh yeah.
Good bread, cause I was making um $2.71 an hour
I keep switching girls all the time because if i'm able to find a girl with
really a groovy car that I can build up, man, I'll go steady with her for
awhile until I can build up her car and blow out the engine.

Dialogue
I worked in a cheesy newspaper company for awhile but that was terrible,
I wasn't making enough money to build anything
Louie Louie
And then I worked in a printing company and a couple of gas stations. Oh
at the gas station where I was working my brother had just gotten married
and uh, he bought a new car and his wife was having a kid and all this
miserable stuff and he needed a job so I gave him a job at the gas station
of which I was fired because, you know, he was going to work there.
And he had his car on the rack and he was lubing it and changing tires
and everything all the time. And so then he got fired because he was
goofing off, man, and he just kept taking parts and working on his car
day and night. So he lost that job and I went to work in another gas station.
He took that one, you know, so he could feed the kids and that. Then
I went to work in a aircraft company, and uh, I was building these planes.
I worked on the XB-70, I was the last welder on there. Yea but, It was pretty
good bread because I was making um, $2.71 an hour. I was making a
hundred and a quarter a week, and uh, yea it was good enough money to
be working on so I got an Oldsmobile, a groovy Olds. But I was going with
this chick at the time. By the time I got the olds running decently, she went
out and tore up the engine, and the trans and let her girlfriends get in there
and booze it up and tare up the seats. They ripped the seats completely out.
So uh, I got a '56 olds, which was this one chick I was going with, and uh
we used to drive out all over the place and finally she got rid of that and uh,
I got another pickup.
