I have the album and ripped a bunch of MP3s off of it years ago. This song came up on my iPod today. I had to share.
The lyrics are a little less intelligible but the live performance with the five piece brass section is more fun.

Look, kids, I realize that there's a constant generational divide in popular music, and that us old white people are totally out of tune with today's urban culture. I know all this. That being said, if this self-proclaimed 'greatest living rockstar' is the best that you guys can come up with to idolize, you really are hopeless. Now go clean your room, Kanye probably barfed all over that too.

Actor Dick Van Patten. Dead at age 86 due to complications from diabetes, his publicist confirmed.
"He was the kindest man you could ever meet in life," his rep, Jeff Ballard, said. "They don't make them like him anymore."
Best known for playing patriarch Tom Bradford in the series "Eight Is Enough," Van Patten most recently appeared in a 2011 episode of "Hot In Cleveland." In the past decade, he also appeared in "Arrested Development, "That '70s Show" and other programs.
"I like to do TV series. I think they're so comfortable. You're doing the same part every week," he once told Emmy TV Legends. "You're working with the same people and there's a lot of recognition. I like to do series best. I really do."
Born Richard Van Patten in New York City, the actor began working as a child and reportedly made his Broadway debut at seven.
Eventually, he moved to Hollywood, where he found success in TV and film, including several movies directed by Mel Brooks, such as "High Anxiety," Spaceballs" and "Robin Hood: Men In Tights."

We're doomed according to scientists who tell us that our survival is based upon other living creatures that we depend upon. As these species perish, what will take their place in the ecosystem? We're our own executioners.
