Lyrics:
Don't Shit Me, Mama [Version (a)]:

Said don't shit me, Mama
Yea don't shit me, Mama
Yea Mama, don't give me no burnt toast
I said don't shit me, Mama
Don't shit me, Mama
Don't want no cream, bacon and egg
So make me breakfast while I'm waiting
Make me breakfast while I'm in the other room
Don't burn my toast, don't burn my egg
Don't crack my bacon 'til I can't stay
I just want you to know that
You can't shit me, Mama
You can't shit me, Mama
You can't shit me, Mama
Woohoohoo!
Said don't shit me, Mama
Said don't shit me, Mama
Don't shit me, Mama
Don't shit me, Mama
Don't shit me, Mama
I don't want no bag of shit
 
The Song:

First a note on the title: there are no "official" titles on Don't Get Bent Out Of Shape, but somewhere along the way someone added them. When the tape began circulating, these names went with it. Most of them are perfectly fine and accurate, but this track was referred to as "Big Stompin' Mama." Since this title is already taken by a song on Fresh Meat, and the line does not actually occur here, I'll use "Don't Shit Me, Mama" instead.

Anyway, I dig this recording. There's a lot of lo-fi percussion and crazy guitar, and Beck's falsetto is very amusing. I just get this insane image in my head of him sitting in a room, banging drums and guitars, and singing "Make me breakfast while I'm waiting" at the top of his lungs. What fun!
