Pink Elephants on Parade Intro
> Bury Me
> Window Paine
BC: Somebody say “pussy”? Yeah, we know what that is. In American, it means cat, like pussycat. ... Sucker, fucker, licker...dicker, cunt. You're -- you're impressing me with your American slang words.
Iha: [4 Dutch words].
Guy in crowd: [unintelligible].
BC: Sorry, we don't know what you're saying.
Iha: Dank you.
Kill Your Parents
I Am One
BC: This is a song about killing your parents and taking drugs. And not necessarily in that order.
Guy in crowd: I'm scared you’re too [2-3 unintelligible words] to sing anymore.
BC: I'm not scared of you.
Iha: Or me. We're gonna burn your eyeballs out after the show, we're gonna kidnap you--
BC: See, you don't even now I'm half Belgian, you should be nice to me. I'm a -- I'm a fellow patriot.
Different guy in crowd: [unintelligible]!
BC: I don't care.
Iha: He carried the torch during the Olympics for your state.
D’arcy: I just want to apologize for myself being lame, I just woke up.
BC: So what do you wanna hear?
Bohemian Rhapsody (tease - Billy sings a variation on a line)
BC: (singing) Mama, I just fucked a man.
Iha: Finally, the time has come.
BC: Why are you here if you're here to badger me?
Iha: That's what they do here, Billy.
BC: Oh, okay.
Guy in crowd: Why are you here?
BC: To attempt to entertain, to attempt to attempt to entertain.
Different guy in crowd: Attempt is right!
Iha: Just play the song.
BC: If you expect me to take your abuse like a whore, it's not gonna happen.
Iha: You should play the song.
BC: No, no, hold on. We're gonna. Alright, hold on. This is a song by the Animals.
