Arf.ru and killuglyradio.com (wiki jawaka) seem to be no longer maintained. Are there any other active places like those on the internet? I was suprised not to find a lyrics thread here (though I admit it's hard to find them since I can't see a search option anywhere).

I just wondered because I've noticed that more than a few of Frank's songs have incorrect lyrics on the major lyrics sites. You should google for Ruthie-Ruthie lyrics for a laff.

Hi,

Most lyrics can usually be found there: http://globalia.net/donlope/fz/

It is true that we have been updating the Zappa Wiki Jawaka less and less often.
It seems that the growing number of spammers plus a few edit wars have progressively frustrated the few contributors there.
And I myself have less personal time to spend there nowadays.
However, if you want to join and update +1000 pages of lyrics, you are welcome.

Cheers

Thanks for that link. I was pleased to see that the lyrics to ruthie ruthie are correct on that site, lol

If I contribute it's only going to be a small amount of things I just noticed other people getting wrong, I'm guessing usually because they are from countries where English isn't their first language. Although judging by the transcription of the lyrics for ruthie ruthie on most sites, I'm guessing it was done by a computer.

I tried to sign up for the wiki but apparently it's broken. I can't seem to login. Instead somehow it signs me up for wikia and the login for that doesn't work for wiki jawaka.

Hello,
I have discussed with the Wiki's webmaster.
A new plug-in has just been implemented.
So you should be able to subscribe again now.
You just need to briefly explain why, so they know you are a true fan and not some sort of evil spammer.
Sorry for the complex procedure, but I guess that you should be able to explain your love for FZ's music in once sentence ;)
Enjoy.
Cheers
