Reviews:
Facts:
  • Also B-side of "I Lost On Jeopardy." (CapSuper)
  • The line "don't want no part of that vegetarian scene" is ironic, considering Al is now a vegetarian (things change, though)! (sav-man)
  • A great Weird Al original that skewers the whole "keeping up with the latest diet/trend/clothing" attitude. (sav-man)
  • From Al's 1983 debut album WEIRD AL YANKOVIC (the version there is different from the demo, though). (sav-man)
  • Song Lyrics:
    I don't care about your karma
    I don't care about what's hip
    No space cadet's gonna tell me what to do

    I won't swim in your Jacuzzi
    You can't make me settle down
    I'd rather kick and jump and bite and scratch
    And scream until I'm blue

    I may as well be hyper
    As long as I'm still around
    'Cause I'll have lots of time to be laid back
    When I'm six feet under ground

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    When are you
    Cosmic cowboys
    Gonna get it through your head

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    I can't stand the smell of incense
    I don't really like to jog
    No Joni Mitchell eight-tracks in my car (ooh)

    I hate anything organic
    Even health food makes me sick
    You won't catch me sipping Perrier
    Down in some sushi bar

    I tell you, now's the time to go for
    All the gusto you can grab
    You'll have plenty of time to be low key
    When you're laid out on the slab

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    When are you
    Cosmic cowboys
    Gonna get it through your head

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    I don't want no part of that vegetarian scene
    I won't buy me a pair of designer jeans
    No redwood hot tub to my name

    I got all that I want
    And if it's all the same to you
    I don't need a course in self-awareness
    To find out who I am

    And I'd rather have a
    Big Mac or a Jumbo Jack
    Than all the bean sprouts in Japan

    So don't ask me what I'm into
    I don't need to prove I'm cool
    I'll break your arm
    If you ask me what's my sign

    I won't tell you where my head's at
    I don't need to see no shrink
    Psychosis may be in this year
    But I'm really not that kind

    And I'm in no hurry to be casual
    In fact I think I'll wait
    Until I'm pushing up the daisies
    (Like, wow, man, can you relate)

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)

    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    I'll be mellow when I'm dead (I'll be mellow when I'm dead)
    (Sonic SBL)
