Local Mix-Up/Murder Charge

This song is by Guided by Voices and appears on the album Same Place The Fly Got Smashed (1990).

[Local Mix-up]
Rimming an ashtray, face in the light
Local mix-up, someone fix up what we broke up
The pleasure seekers are out there tonight
Local mix-up, someone fix up what we broke up

You as a person have got to think fast
'Cause this is a party that's not gonna last
And this is the same place the fly got smashed

Dress him, dress him, dress him, dress him
Dress him, dress him, dress him like a queen
Dress him, dress him, dress him, dress him
Dress him, dress him, dress him like a queen

Rimming an ashtray, face in the light
Local mix-up, someone fix up what we broke up
The pleasure seekers are out there tonight
Local mix-up, someone fix up what we broke up

You as a person have got to think fast
'Cause this is a party that's not gonna last
And this is the same place the fly got smashed

Dress him, dress him, dress him, dress him
Dress him, dress him, dress him like a queen
Dress him, dress him, dress him, dress him
Dress him, dress him, dress him like a queen

[Murder Charge]
In the early days he was bursting with confidence
I saw the light changing
Over the years he began to submerge
The nervous wreck we know him to be
The nervous twisted wreck

So watch out for Joker Bob
I wish he were just a distant relative
But he's razor close like Brylcreem gelatin
Icy cold acid in his heart

And with this we shall draw the electrifying conclusion

They strapped him in still chewing his bubblegum
Gave him the Jesus-shock
As the reporters watched
Finally his ticker stopped
They buried him with a smile on his puss

And that's the electrifying conclusion
