about

A funky tale of some funky Chinese food gone horribly wrong...or horribly right? Either way, this wacky, rock-infused funk song is one of Iron-E's most well liked tunes.

lyrics

I was just scarfin’ away at my old Chinese
When I saw spots, feelin’ weak in the knees

Orange, yellow, purple, and green
It was the greatest light show I’d ever seen

Luminescent ghost in fronta my eyes
Said “Let me take you away into the skies”

“I’ll tell you everything ya need to know”
Threw my arms up and I said “WOAH!”

I can’t wrap this round my head
And I don’t KNOW…
Exactly what I’ve been fed
Images and people and experiences that I just can’t seem to equate
To that oh-so mysterious additive Mono-Sodium Glutamate!

I was down at the store
And I was talkin’ to some broccoli
And I said: “Broccoli,
“How are you talkin’ to me?”
And that broccoli said to me,
“I ain't talkin’ to you,
“You’re just trippin’ on MSG.”

The ghost and his glorious gold afro
Showed me the place where all of it flows

Gucci bags and Loch Ness too
All of it floats in the Kalamazoo

Jet planes, blenders, gravy, and cowboys
All surrounded by familiar noise

The funky beat caused me to glow
Started a dance and I said “WOAH!”

I can’t wrap this round my head
And I don’t KNOW…
Exactly what I’ve been fed
Images and people and experiences that I just can’t seem to equate
To that oh-so mysterious additive Mono-Sodium Glutamate!

I was walkin’ down street
And I was ran over by a car,
It was Bill Clinton in a limousine
And I said “Bill Clinton,
“Why’d you do this to me?”
He said, “I didn’t do this to you,
“You’re just trippin’ on MSG.”

Punched that old ghost right in the lips
Confetti flyin’ outta my fingertips

Rocketed away on my smooth jetpack
But the lights and the colors pulled my back

My final attempt to get away
I wander in a dream to this very day

So remember when your noodles are startin’ to glow
You’ll be greeted by the ghost who screams “WOAH!”

I can’t wrap this round my head
And I don’t KNOW…
Exactly what I’ve been fed
Images and people and experiences that I just can’t seem to equate
To that oh-so mysterious additive Mono-Sodium Glutamate!
