Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band - Tropical Hot Dog Night Lyrics




Tropical hot dog night
Like two flamingos in a fruit fight
Ev'ry colour of day
Whirlin' around at night
I'm playin' this music
So the young girls will come out
To meet the monster tonight
Tropical hot dog night

Like two flamingos in a fruit fight
I don't wanna know 'bout wrong or right
Yeah, I don't want to know
I'm anywhere tonight

Tropical hot dog night
Like two flamingos in a fruit fight
Like steppin' out of a triangle
Into striped light
Striped light, striped light

Tropical hot dog night
Everything's wrong, at the same time it's right
The truth has no patterns for me tonight
I'm playing this music so the young girls will come out
To meet the monster tonight
Meet the monster tonight

What do all you women do
When the men get tropical hot dog payday?
What do you do on tropical hot dog day day?
Hey, hey
Step out of a triangle into striped light
Turn around and step back into striped light
Tropical hot dog night

I'm playin' this song
For all the young girls to come out to meet the monster tonight
Meet the monster tonight
How would you like to be the lucky girl
The lucky one?
To be the monster tonight
Ow, to be the monster tonight
Oh, everything's wrong, at the same time it's white!

You get to be, you get to be with me
And also to be the monster tonight

  8. aakkoin

    How good is this song, I mean really

  9. Nick Ross

    All I hear is Trout Mask Replica when I hear their music now.

    Joseph Travis

    That's understandable considering it's his most critical release. A close second is Doc At The Radar Station which is my favorite of all.

  10. ananasas jenkins

    Perfect song

  11. pardyhardly

    I'm glad that somebody finally wrote a song about this subject.

  14. Stephen Hockey

    Like two Phillipinos in a boot fight

  15. Chris LeeWoo

    Let me just say this: yum

  16. Mark Oman

    One of the most clever musical compositions of all time. Simplistic on the surface but with an incredible amount of density in the background.

  17. felica lee

    oh my god is this about a pineapple hot dog pizza .........no way

  18. Music with Morals

    Don't sleep on Coati Mundi's version!

  19. Liam Cooper

    LIKE STEPPING OUT OF A TRIANGLE

    STEP OUT OF THE TRIANGLE

    - CAPTAIN BE ART

  20. Roderick Sparhawk

    Meet Ze Monsta

  21. Adam Eden

    Avant garde beatnik brilliance howlin' at da moooooon...

  22. MzGumby02

    Vinesauce Vinny brought me here.

  23. Joe Horizon

    Purchased upon release. A highly anticipated release. A damn great release.

    Joseph Travis

    Same here. I still remember that day like yesterday.

  24. Zachary Detrick

    um, synthesizer on my beefheart track?

    Zachary Detrick

    the marimba adds SUCH a nice vibe

    Zachary Detrick

  25. Carlos Jara

    Terrible Wendy el capitán , al orégano

  26. Martin9172

    amazing song
    i rate it 19/20▲

  27. Crimson Kng

    Beatles, Bowie, and Beefheart.

  28. Stavros TheHun

    Genius.

  29. Paul Worden

    Like stepping out of a triangle!

    Adam Eden

    Striped Light! (these guys are doing physics in poetry)

  30. Stephen Hockey

    Like two Phillipinos in a boot fight.

  31. Remsen Ostrander

    This beefheart fellow sure has a way with words...like taking a perfect cannonball into the alphabet soup of creativity....heh heh...

  32. Joe Horizon

    Anticipated its release and purchased it right then. A pure classic.

  33. Ben Wilson

    Idk what

  34. Nicolas Paparelli

    perfeito!

  35. Shelley Owen

    This song is on the soundtrack of living your perfect life. Like stepping out of a triangle, into striped light.

  36. NOTHINGMAN

    I'm gonna booglarize you baby

  37. Redeadhunter

    I rate this 19/20

  38. galaxy girl

    nice mate

  39. Daniel Cowan

    The sound kind of reminds me of Vampire Weekend

  40. PurpleDeflector

    19 people stepped out of a square as opposed to a triangle

  41. Wilbur1Maggot

    Seriously folks, YouTube music quality does this no justice. Buy it and play through good speakers.
    It's at least 2.5x better! Oh yeah!

  42. aksoom1159

    I have no idea how did i get here. Great song but confusing!

  43. Malcom Tent

    I used to play this in the locker room before football games - LOUDLY.  Something about it felt really URGENT and just made me wanna play a violent, collision game.  Don VV would probably be mortified. But once you write a song and put it out in the world, you run the risk of a goober like me interpreting it as I will...This and Apes Ma were my favorites on this record.

  44. Pas Thomas

    this is not a video

  45. alastair barker

    genius- genius - genius

  46. Om Sadasiva

    Φυστικοβουτυρο

  47. Loreno III

    It's like somebody dropped mescaline before covering a Jimmy Buffet song.

  48. Woody Hodge

    Thanks to the music gods that Don and Frank knew each other from high school. What would the world of music be w/o the Zappa/Beefheart influence. Pretty bland I dare say....

  49. Fabric Couch

    Wow - this is undeniable. If this doesn't make you feel good, nothing will.

  50. Gaming Player123

    Vinny brought me here.
    19/20

  51. Robert Gray

    I tryed so hard when i was a young boy...hated every second of it and sound of it...now? Im 56 and cant stop 🎶 listening to the beef

  52. Neville Shunt

    The Master would approve!

  53. carltonbanks67

    Sounds like what gravel would sound like, if it had a voice

  54. Kieran Daly

    My party music. Always.

  55. Mike D

    MY WEDDING SONG!!!!!!

  56. Unlucky Crow

    beenyort pls

  57. candaysium

    i've been singing this all morning, including during my morning walk with my dog. maybe this will make people stay away from me. THANKS BRAINYOT!

  58. Iain Clark

    So. Good.

  59. DrDolphinrider

    He's shit talking the mudcrab!

  60. Daryl Powell

    but what does it mean

  61. Townnn-biz

    Vinny sent me

  62. Jake Riley

    ****) MAD DOG SEAL OF OH YOU DATED HER TOO (****

  63. Jaslav

    Merci, Barnyard

  64. Yoga Guy

    Captain Beefheart’s singing sounds like barf, and I mean that in a good way, this is the coolest shit ever.

  65. Mr. Wong

    Be sure to have good headphones when you hear this amazing track! (Lots going on with the synths and bass.)

  66. Greg Moonen

    And also to meet the monster tonight...

  67. ThatguycalledJoe

    Is the monster his penis?

  68. Terry Dearing

    I played this album for my grandmother too and she was just as confused by it, though that may have been caused by her Altzimers.

  69. 165Dash

    Almost radio ready!

  70. paramount

    vinesauce

  71. Nᴀɴᴏᴍᴇɴ

    the national anthem of vinny going insane while trying to get that one last dorito

  72. Norman de Bellefeuille

    Reminds me of the Fall and they remind me of Captain Beefheart.

  73. Garrett Baker

    Georgia State U and Georgia Tech each had radio stations in the 70's that would play this and other assorted alternative artists. Miss those days.

  74. Tom Graham

    The Captain uses his lyrics as an artistic canvas not as any kind of intellectual composition. It's not what it means, it's how it looks.

    Gaming Player123

    It's not our fault that Vinny likes this song, and that he constantly brings it up on his streams.

    Ian Moore

    As I watch his streams I notice him talking about this song over and over, like almost one short second per stream

    PKhydro

    Gaming Player123

    The literal almost-end of the "Triforce Piece" run brought me here.
