Oh no
I don't believe it
You say that you think you know
The meaning of love
You say love is all we need
You say
With your love you can change
All of the fools
All of the hate
I think you're probably
Out to lunch

Oh no
I don't believe it
You say that you think you know
The meaning of love
Do you really think it can be told?
You say that you really know
I think
You should check it again
How can you say
What you believe
Will be the key to a
World of love?

All your love
Will it save me?
All your love
Will it save the world
From what we can't understand?
Oh no
I don't believe it

And in your dreams
You can see yourself
As a prophet
Saving the world
The
Words from your lips
I just can't believe
You are such
A fool

"Directly From My Heart To You"
This was the first ever Zappa song I heard (back around 1970/71), and prompted me to seek out more. It will always be #1 with me.

Fireworks at The Mall in Washington, DC. Little Richard plays rousing rendition of his original classic, Directly From My Heart To You.

WASHINGTON, DC/JULY 4, 2007 - Little Richard brought down the house this afternoon. He played a few numbers, and was backed by a full band with horn section. In the middle of his three-number set, he played Directly From My Heart To You. I loved it!!! - jimmie d

i voted Get A Little, cos it's so laid back but biting at the same time. and it's a great interlude between the first and second halves of the album.

Oh No, with no excuses, it is a beautiful song, followed by Dwarf Nebula, followed by Directly From My Heart To Yours, followed by Orange Co Lumber, followed by Eric Dolphy. Weasels occupies a special place as the disruption and ending. It depends on all the proceeding for its effect, so I can't call it my favorite, but I still like the effect.

I thought that "My guitar wants to kill your mama" would win by a longshot since it's the most famous song off the album.

ANY song with Eric Dolphy in the title > any song that doesn't have Eric Dolphy in the title.

My Guitar. It's catchy and funny. Okay, I might sound like I only like Zappa's catchy stuff, but I just happen to dig this song.
