can: mother upduff

Sometimes I can't write. The words obstinately refuse come. It would be foolish to write, when the words of others just come a lot faster, earlier and easier than mine. One such case is the song below by CAN entitled Mother Upduff. Paints a delightfully skewed picture, enjoy it. I picked up Cannibalism 3 in FOPP, I'm sure you can do the same.


Dusseldorf 1969,
Mr. and Mrs. Upduff and grandmother Upduff
Decided they were going on a vacation.
Mother Upduff hadn't been out of Dusseldorf in 80 years.
They packed in their car their tent and equipment
And started driving off to Italy.
Mother Upduff is reading about the Mafia on their way to Italy.
Drrrroom, off they went,
Driving in their automobile.
Finally they got to Italy, beautiful old Italy, fantastic sights.
Pompeii they went to,
They went to Pompeii, they went to Venice,
They went to Sicily, they went to Florence,
Their final stop was Rome.
Off to Rome, Drrooom.Bzzzzr
Rome, then they were in Rome,
Old paintings, old buildings, fantastic sights to see.
Mother Upduff decided she was going out on the beach for a walk,
Out she went for a walk.
Mr. And Mrs. Upduff said they would follow,
Off they went behind Mother Upduff trailing behind her.
Mother Upduff was walking down the street
Looking at all the shop windows.
Finally, or is it the beginning,
Mother Upduff was standing there watching in the fish market,
A gigantic octopus leap out of the pool
And snatch Mother Upduff up.
Little then did they know what to do Mother and M-Father Upduff wrote,
Not having any money at all,
Decided that they would have to wrap her up in their tent,
Putting on top of the car and carry her back to Dusseldorf.
Wrapping her up in their tent, putting her on top of the car
And fiercely driving off to Dusseldorf.
Drooooom, off they went back to Dusseldorf.
On the way to Dusseldorf as they were still in Italy
They drove into a café, have a cup of coffee.
Drinking their cup of coffee up, coming back outside
Their car had been stolen with their luggage.

You really have to sympathise with the Upduffs. I know I do.

Can - Mother Upduff
