[various kim sounds]
Tears cruise away, packed and then took a shit
The sky is ours, dark stains on his pants
Enough to make him blush around the bone
Take a walk in the park, shit yeah!
Poor boy, a rich boy
A poor rich boy comin' right thru me
Rich boy, poor boy
Poor rich boy comin' right thru me

- As is common sonic practice, this song's title
is a bit of an in-joke. The band thought the song
sounded like a cross between a Dinosaur Jr song and
something off of ZZ Top's "Eliminator". In fact,
it was often listed on set lists as "ZZ".
- Part "z" of the Trilogy, which serves
as not only a closing to the album (as in "a to z")
but also a reference to the ZZ Top influence.
- An early live instrumental version appears on
the Silver Rocket 7" as "Non-Metal Dude Wearing Metal Tee".
