Amoeba Knievel – Rest in Peace, Mason Reese

Live at the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh, PA, on June 19, 2006, this song was inspired by a 1970’s advertising campaign for Under Wood Deviled Ham. This video actually leaves off the last, climactic verse. Here are the complete lyrics:

Rest in peace, Mason Reese.

And they take your freckled facade
Your voice both familiar and odd
And they put you up like a god
Just to sell some leftover sod

And I’m going into the land of
Underwood Deviled Ham…

They gave you as groovy new bike
And gave you a reason to like
The ways they exploited you life
It hurt when they turned out the light

And I’m going into the land of
Underwood Deviled Ham…

Life is no borgasmord
When you’re alone and bored
Rest in peace, Mason Reese.

You woke with a gun in your hand
Went down to the grocery man
I’ll spare you sir if you just hand
Over all your Underwood Ham

And I’m going into the land of
Underwood Deviled Ham…

Life is no borgasmord
When you’re alone and bored
Rest in peace, Mason Reese.
