the last lyric in "Stop Dragging My Car Around" is

"Hey, hey I left a sandwich in the backseat!
Stop dragging my car around
Oh...
Stop dragging my car around"

then the audio drops out to nothing, no swears there
The tsunami of immediacy will wash away the flood of grief, and reveal a layer of naive optimism underneath

I love that line. For some reason it's just such a good indication of the character's pathetic nature. It reminds me of the "Simpsons" episode in which Otto gets evicted from his dumpy apartment. "Oh wow, I had mustard?!?"

Now, if we were instead talking about one of demos to SDMCA, then that's a whole other discussion.

I remember that one of the demos has some alternative lyrics. Was there something of a questionable nature in there? I don't seem to remember anything like that.

It's at the very tail end during the fade-out. It's nothing really major, just something you might see written on the side of a parade float at the end of "Animal House."

I never noticed that before... that's actually pretty funny. ;)

Big deal, he used a variant of that as a hidden track title...

Ahaha, I remember that line. =P (And, in my opinion, it's nothing worse than anything said during the "beef burrito" part of WBUL...)
Are we playin' horseshoes, honey? No, I don't think we are...

Well, there's some difference. One is merely a goofy double entendre, while the other is telling someone to perform a specific sexual act on you.
