And I say, "I never said
no 'filth, flarn, filth'."

"You know what I'm talking about.
"I can't use the type of language
that you use,

"but you know what I mean when
I say 'filth, flarn, flarn, flarn, filth'."

I say, "I never said 'filth, flarn, filth'.
"I don't know what you're talking about.
I'm offended you called. Fuck you."

That's when Bill got pissed and said:
"That's what I'm talking about.
You cannot say 'fuck'...

"...in front of people."
And I got mad.
Because he thought
that was my whole act.

I manage to stick in some

Remember, you'd sneak in
the basement, put his albums on,

and your mother ain't
