Anyone care to take a stab at it?

She lifted the monument in her monumental arms

She was the Mother Superior, with her carry-on luggage charms

She was this androgynous, powder-nosed girl-next-door

She had eaten her dog, and she was

Back for more

Back for more

Back for more

Oh, she was back for more

Some more

Yes please

Some more

Her gym teacher thought himself a sweat-socked demigod

And her geraniums thought themselves an alien pod

Her front porch gave way beneath the classified weight

And when an ambulance came, they said it's much too late

Oh, it's much too late

Oh, it's much too, much too late

Oh, it's much too late

How late?

Very late

Too late

Now, the people of New Guinea and the people of L.A.

Have been penpals for years, 'cause they both hate ballet

Only the pandas and bears have made a clean getaway

But the news bulletin claims it is gonna be okay

Now, Miss Lucy had a sweat shop where the immigrants worked

Problem was, they all turned to pumpkins at the 12-o'-clock stroke

Promptly confiscated by police

Precinct number X

That was when the alien geraniums demanded the facts

No violence, of course

No violence, no violence, of course

Hey, hey, no violence, of course

Of course

Why yes

Of course

I-I mean, I mean, of course

Why yes, of, of course

Here the story gets hazy, and the hair gets too long

And the TV gets quiet, as we hear a real bad song

The mothers get whiskey, and the girlfriends get tongue

And there's a, a back of a truck selling smoke-free lungs

And there's a back of a truck selling alien pods

And there's a, a back of a truck selling game show hosts

And there's a, a back of a truck selling the souls of the dead

And there's a back of a truck selling crumb-free bread

This is New York!

Now, there's a back of a truck selling the back of a car

And there's a back of a car selling roadway maps

And there are roadway maps selling the back of a head

Hey, how much for that back of a head, man?

Hey, wait a minute

Hey, wait a minute

Wait a minute, that—wait a minute, that's

Myy back of a head

Hey, you can't sell that, man, that's

Myy back of a head

Hey, hey sell it back to me, man, sell it back to me, hey, it's

It's my, muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-myyy

Oh

She lifted the monument in her monumental arms

She was the Mother Superior, with her carry-on luggage charms

She was this androgynous, powder-nosed girl-next-door

She had eaten her dog, and she was

Back for more

She had eaten her dowg, D-O-W-G

She had eaten her dowg, d-do-dowg, d-do-dowg, dowg, dowg, do

She had eaten her, eeaten, eaten her, ea-eaten, eaten her, ohhhh

Mmm, mmm-mmm

Ohh, ahhlalalalalalohhh

She

Wooo, woo-woo-woo, wooo, woo

Some more, yes please

Some more

Some more, yes please

Some more

well.. this is my idea about the song..

maybe the girl is committing suicide.. in a street of New York city.. watching how aback of a truck is selling things..

then she shoots her head "hey thats my back of a head" and in the end when she's recalling thigns.. they might be her life passing through her eyes

well.. i don't know.. it's confusing

that's my idea
