Stumbled across these on the reverse of the original Japanese release on the Zappa Frenzy site (Hope they don't mind the link)
Also the "lyrics" to Who Are the Brain Police.
I first noticed the way that the lyrics on Japanese releases were somewhat unreliable when I bought Iron Maiden Live +1.
I think somebody at the record company, with the best English, does their best to interpret the lyrics!

Every night before I got to sleep, I recite my big eyes golden prayer.

I can relate to the chorus:

“ there’s no way to the table that’s trouble coming every day”

since I’ve been gaining weight... :mrgreen:

Lyrics for "Bwana Dik" from the Japanese edition of Fillmore East--all spelling as printed:

I got the thing you need.
I am endowed beyond your whildest creams
Spattered fantastic.
Girls from all over the world
flock to write my name on tolit walls
of the whiskey-Ago-Go.

Boy, I am Bwana Dik.
I am Bwana Dik,
we want a nickle,
we want a nickle.

My Dick is a monstar.
Give me your heart,
my dick is a lecture he knows it by heart.
My dick is a harley, your ticket to stars.
One of it speaks the others for park.
My dick is a dazen of fortitude babe.
My dick is a reamer to scream up your snatch.
Steamin', creamin', creamin'.

Pissed at the record company for not investing more money to do it right?
