Lyrics:
Got me a movie
I want you to know
Slicing up eyeballs
I want you to know
Girly so groovy
I want you to know
Don't know about you
But I am un chien Andalusia

I am un chien Andalusia
I am un chien Andalusia
I am un chein Andalusia

Wanna grow
Up to be
Be a debaser

Don't know about you
But I am un chien Andalusia

I am un chien Andalusia
I am un chien Andalusia
I am un chien Andalusia

Quotes:
Thereís a cord progression, thatís the first thing. Then a word or a phrase at the most. Then a topic evolves around that. I thought of Un Chien Andalou and I thought an arty French movie was an equally dumb thing to write a song about.
Debaser fitted well because at the time of the movie the Parisiens were ripping up their seats in the theatres because of another film and the point of Un Chien Andalou was to debase morality. To debase standards of art. The classic film school shot is the razor slicing across the eyeball. Eyes are the main way people communicate; you can hold unspoken conversations. I guess that itís the most important part of your body unless youíre talking to a blind person.

- Frank in NME 22nd April 1989
