Real Lyrics -> Dumbest -> Arlo Guthrie

These are lyrics by Arlo Guthrie that we think are kind of dumb.

The Best of Arlo Guthrie album at
Arlo Guthrie's, "Alice's Restaurant Massacree"
The Dumbest Lyrics:
[recitative]We was fined fifty dollars and had to go pick up the garbage in the snow, but that's not what I came to talk about...I came to talk about the draft...
Why They're Dumb:
Arlo, you've just spent eight minutes recounting your adventure with Alice's garbage, Officer Obie, the blind judge and the 27 8x10s... and that's not what you came to talk about?! This song is 18 minutes long and you spend only the last ten telling about your induction physical. The phrase 'That's not what I came to talk about' doesn't belong in this recitative.
