Take Off Your Clothes

Sometimes the words and the music fit together well.

 
Written: Fort Bliss TX, fall 1969
 
It must have been a slow day at the warfront when Knees wrote these lyrics. They show that his contrarian spirit was already well in place by 1969. Probably inspired by William Burroughs’ Naked Lunch, it turned into a nifty little anthem to non-conformity.
 
You know it’s perfectly natural
To pick away at your nose
Yes it’s perfectly natural
Take off your clothes.
 
You know it’s perfectly natural
Any way she blows
Yes it’s perfectly natural
Take off your clothes.
 
You know that you got hair
To keep you warm where you need it
You also got a mouth
To make you grow so why not feed it?
 
You know it’s perfectly natural
To lick away at her toes
Yes it’s perfectly natural
Take off your clothes.
 
You know it’s perfectly natural
When it flows it flows
Yes it’s perfectly natural
Take off your clothes.
