about

Barry Beam was a New Wave artist in the San Francisco Punk scene cir 1984. He was known for his one man shows at the Mabuhey Gardens, running around wide eyed with a Mic screwed to his guitar. His alien abductor, 2Ray Ka Boing Boing would take over his body during shows and make him tap dance while singing "It's so big". All Barry Beam wanted was to say he was sorry about the "Girly Attic Flu" ,( www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmCYQi2SKlc ), and its effect on the economy since.

Track Name: The Girly Attic Flu
Girly attic flu

As long as we are getting a bit technical!

It happened on a Firedrill
It was like the EARTH STOOD STILL
From that moment
I knew the truth

I had caught the Girly attic flu

To the Gym the girls did go
Curtains closed
Secret movie show
Why could the boys see
Cause it was the girly attic flu

girly attic flu

I feel so weak my klnees are trembling

Let’s humiliate him
Let’s turn him into a girl
Let’s give him corrective underwear
And put nare on his sweaty palms
Ha ha ha

Older boys used to pick on me
Kick me and tear my baseball cards
Why wouldn’t I defend myself
Symptoms of the girly attic flu

I ran home and told my mother
She said it’s nothing don’t bother
Then I heard her phone my teacher
Talking bout the girly attic flu

girly attic flu

I feel so weak
I’m afraid to defend myself
Get outta here you sissy

To infect the male of the species
Sprickle kooties on his hair or sweeter
Pass him a love note
Give him snuggy or Indian rope burn
No not that ahhhhhhhhhhhh

And when I ride the waves
I am alone with myself
The surf crashes off my body
And I am free
No man owns
I am king of the universe
I am a man

Look out for that rock your gonna wipe out

Now I got responsibility
To function well in society
I rotate tire
Replace burnt out tube
I wait my turn to add a word

Now dance the quirk jerk smirk
And marvo at computer jerk
Election time is almost here
They’re voting in the girly attic flu

What ya gonna do girly attic flu

Your are now under my spell
I command you to hit that wimp
Hit that wimp
Don’t hit me nooooooooooo
Take that
No no don’t hit
Please no don’t get me….
Ahhhhhhh

Mom, they were beating up on me at school
I didn’t want to be hit
What’s wrong with me?

girly attic flu

you wimp
I can run faster than you
Go tell your mother!

Ah ah ah
Track Name: Wac's in Slacks
She won't cut out when she's squeezed
Wac' in Slacks
She gone bring you to your knees
Wac's in Slacks

6 Foot 7 foot 8 foot 9
Have to walk the line
6 Foot 7 foot 8 foot 9
Got you up in time

loose lips sink ships
And you go
Wac's In Slacks

You could be surfin' ah
you could be sailin' ah
you could be wailin' ah
But your in the Army now
you could be laughin' ah
you could be tappin' ah
you could be rappin' ah
But your in the Army now

Exposed to excess moisture and grime
Wac's in Slack
She stands guard to fight world crime
Track Name: I.C.
I. C. B. C. T. V.
We've been dead or intermittent
oxidized acoustic feedback
I. C. A.D. T. P.
History got poor response curve
stick electrode to the lost nerve
news and info Sabotagee
High Distortion battery drain

Hows the scene jelly bean
You changed the channel
got sent to the dean
It's my Favorite thing
The go between our unseen screen
takes drugs to turn on what always been
It's my Favorite thing

I. C. B. C. T. V.
Oscillating heavy breathing
rumor has it time is leaving
I. C. A.D. T. P.
The surgeon General has determined
work stiff is always what it
seem to be a bang bang your dead
brush your teeth and go right to bed

To dump de hump we check for lump
to beat de rap we play the trump
It my Favorite Thing
To tell the truth you bet your life
everyone is factory authorized
Its my favorite thing
Track Name: Puppets
Puppets

Puppets on a string parade
Display their hearts and walk away
We could stay and we could make believe
These string would fall away

Wooo ooo ooo but they can’t pull me away from you
Wooo ooo ooo but they can’t pull me away

We belong we both belong
At once we’re here and then we’re gone
We reappear we’re free to feel
The pull of different puppetiers

Wooo ooo ooo but they can’t pull me away from you
Wooo ooo ooo but they can’t pull me away

Ah pull my strings Heart strings
Ah pull my strings Heart strings

Take my heart no string attached no strings attached
Take my heart no string attached no strings attached
No strings at all

Puppets on a string parade
Display their hearts and march away
We can stay and we can make believe
These strings would fall a-way
We can make believe

Take my heart no string attached no strings attached
Take my heart no string attached no strings attached
No strings at all
Track Name: Fall Thru the Floor
Fall Through the Floor

Face in a frame
Broken window pane
Thurder under ground
We’re too close the sound

Race with the rain
Can’t escape the pain
When I thought it would end
Lighting strikes again

When I saw you
I fall through the floor
When I touched you
I fall through the floor

All I need is you
Got to set me free
They say it can’t be
Too many things in front of me

Jump from the roof
Aim for the truth
Wind is blowin me
Where I land is where I’ll be

When I saw you
I fall through the floor
When I touched you
I fall through the floor

Fall through the floor
I fall through the floor

The things a girl has to go through to do a polka
You should have seen what it did to the dummy in the window
Every body stand in line
A rakity ray for him!
