Dear Dweezil Zappa,
I really like your music. I think you are a pretty good musician. Your father's music inspired me to try writing music. I'm still trying, I sure do love music. Music is the best. I am not a groupie.
(Song by Jesse Maclaine. Performed by Aural Elixir: Ryan Elwood, Avery Johnson, & Jesse Maclaine)
The Ballad of Dynamo Hummingbird
I just wanna be seen
like a wish flitting in an out of a sunbeam.
Sugar water me baby & I'll,
I'll fly away.
(Because) I am not a groupie.
I am not a groupie.
I won't be waiting on the bus,
and I won't bring you a green rosetta
Even though you are pretty,
even though you are pretty good,
even though you are pretty good musicians.
Hello. My name is Dynamo Hummingbird.
I just wanna be seen.
Validate me, or at least my parking.
I just wanna sing for you.
Let me pluck your heart strings too.
Hey, where you going?
Don't run away.
If you don't want to engage me,
just don't make eye contact then I'll never know where you're at.
You just wanna be seen.
You just wanna be treated like a human being,
even with all the gifts you bring,
never mind the fancy(Z) name you're wearing.
Well, I love my groupies.
I do have one or two in every city.
They appreciate my music,
they think I'm a pretty good musician.
Pass me that piano,
I can play it with my wings.
Don't need no gunslinger.
I can kill 'em with my keys.
Hello, hello...*sings some Nirvana lyrics (incorrectly)*
Pretty good musicians. (Ad infinitum)
