Artist: Frank Zappa Title: Dance contest ---------------------------- FZ: "One of, one of the things that I like best about playing in New York is this particular place, because it has - it has a stage that is conducive to, how you say in the trade, audience participation. Now if there's one thing that I really like, it's, uh, audience participation. Now listen... I gotta figure out something that I can, uh - do you think we should have another dance contest tonight? Oh, hey - the injured person dance contest. Ah, well, let's see...Awright, I'll tell you what we're going to do. Here's a, here's a guy who really wants to be in the dance contest aw-reety, aw-righty, hey. Okay..." BUTCH: "You are great, man - you are great. You are the best, baby. Do 'Dinah-Moe Humm.'" FZ: "All right, now wait a minute - what's your name? Hey, hey - what's your name?" BUTCH: "Butch." FZ: "Awright, the dynamic Butch. Here's, here's a girl that wants to dance with Butch. What's your name?" LENA: "Lena." FZ: "What?" LENA: "Lena." FZ: "Lena, meet Butch. Okay, Lena and Butch, couple number one. Heh heh.

Ugliness! Ugliness!" OTHER GUY: "Frank, you're my buddy! Arrgh, mmf." FZ: "Awright, wait a minute, wait a minute. I have an important message to deliver to all the cute people all over the world. If you're out there and you're cute, maybe you're beautiful, I just want to tell you somethin' - there's more of us ugly mother-fuckers than you are, hey-y, so watch out. Now..." GUY (BUTCH?): "Will you bring my girlfriend on stage, maybe?" FZ: "Sure. All right, now you - he wants to get his girlfriend - go get your girlfriend." GIRL: "Hey Zap!" FZ: "Good to see you again." GIRL: "Squeak!" FZ: "I know." GUY: "I ain't no fucking queer." FZ: "All right, now look, here's what we're going to do. Awright. Now. This - they'll be mashed, I'll save them, I'll save them for later." GUY: "I'm not a fucking queer." FZ: "This man is trying desperately to let everybody know that he's not a queer. He's not queer, he's not queer. Awright, and now... You are going to dance, like you've never danced before..."
