Beavis and Butt-Head

Poetry and Prose is a song by Primus. It appeared as the 8th track of the album The Beavis and Butt-Head Experience.


I ain't one for poetry, ain't one for prose
Ain't one for the scent of a springtime rose
But there is one fact that I do know
I sure get a kick out of that Beavis and Butt-Head show

Other day I turn my TV on, what is it I do see?
Two crazy-ass cartoon sons-a'-bitches staring on back at me
Said, "What the hell's this", and Lar said, "Boy, don't you know?"
The whole world's gone crazy over that there Beavis and Butt-Head show

Talk about couch fishing, now I could go for that
I could go for frog baseball, but I'm inclined to use a cat!
On comedy, I'm a Stooges man. I like Larry, Curly and Moe
But now and then I get a chuckle watchin' the Beavis and Butt-Head show

Stone Temple Pearlvana Chains, now there's a helluva band
They got that original sound that's been sweepin' across the land
They ain't no ZZ Top though, now that's the band for me
If I had my way MTV'd play just them and AC/DC

I ain't nothing special, I'm your average kinda man
I like a frosted barley pop and I drink 'em outta the can!
I don't give a rat's ass about poetry and not a damn about prose
I sure do get a kick outta them Beavis and Butt-Head shows

Butt-Head: Hey, Beavis.
Beavis: What?
Butt-Head: I was just like, uh, thinking and stuff... It was pretty cool.
Beavis: Yeah, I'm gonna try that.
Butt-Head: TV is cool.
Beavis: Yeah, yeah, TV rules. It rules! Yeah.
Butt-Head: Hey Beavis... I heard that pretty soon, they're gonna have, like, 500 channels. That's gonna be cool.
Beavis: Really? That would be cool.
Butt-Head: You know what would be really cool, though? If like, one of the channels didn't suck.
Beavis: Yeah, but, like, if one of them didn't suck, then why would you need the other, um, 327?
Butt-Head: Because, you know all those TV shows that suck? It's like, you have to put 'em somewhere! You can't put 'em on the cool channel!
Beavis: Yeah, yeah! They should call it "The Cool Channel"!
