Betta
It’s really getting betta
Its betta, it’s betta
With a green rosetta
Setta, setta
That’s right, with a green rositti, too
Green rositti
A little green rositti
It’s really, really meaty
A little green rositti
Betta, betta,
(Hey, really out
there . . . really good)

It’s really getting betta
It’s betta, it’s betta
With a green rosetta
Setta, setta
(Good God, give the drummer some)

(Etc. . . .)
 
Good God! You’re really jammin! Now the Reggae version, hey, for the People in the Third World . . . we haven’t forgotten anybody on this song . . . for all of you French people . . .  who think that you’re outta sight . . . And for the people in Spain . . . who think the French people are where it’s at . . . And for the people in Mongolia who always wanted to go to Spain for a vacation . . . And for those of you in Taiwan who got chumped, this chorus is for you: (Rang Tang Ding Dong, I am the Japanese Sandman . . .  Take eight . . . )

(Against the Reggae beat, though . . .
No, it’s still Reggae,
but it’s all backwards)

Now you see, some places in the Third World it might be difficult to dance to this because the kerosene record player is not a very efficient device . . . And a lot  of times they run out of, they run out of spunk right in the middle of the chorus . . . Causing the song to sound like this . . .

However we continue in spite of the fact that the fuel may be low on your record player: We suggest that in places like the Fourth World where things are really tough that you keep the record player going by rubbing two sticks together. And if all else fails, throw the record away . . . build your own green rosetta . . . try this recipe: Well start with a lump of grass . . .  the grass bone connected to the ankle bone . . . the knee bone connected to the wishbone . . . and then everybody moves to New York and goes to a party with Warren. Hey!
 
And we’ve flown in, at great expense (triple scale, no less, ladies and gentlemen), Steve Gadd’s clone to play the out-chorus on this song . . . he’s really outasite, in spite of the fact that the click track is totally irrelevant to what he’s doing now. I’m listening to the click, yes I’m suffering with the click track right now . . . this guy is totally out of sync with it, but what the fuck. Ed Mann will call him up later, show him the sign. Okay Vinnie, where is five?
 
They’re pretty good musicians
They’re pretty good musicians
They’re pretty good musicians
They’re pretty good musicians
But it don’t make no difference
If they’re good
musicians
Because anybody who would buy this record
Doesn’t give a fuck if there’s good musicians
On it
Because this is a
stupid song
AND THATS THE WAY I LIKE IT

You make
a muffin betta
With a little

A little green rosetta
Rosetta, rosetta,

(etc., etc., etc . . . . )
