Eskimo/Diskomo lyrics
« on: October 17, 2016, 06:47:04 pm »
I really do think that the majority of human voices on The Eskimo project are singing/chanting words in English. They're just hard to understand. I'm compiling attempts to transcribe them all:

“Birth” ends with chants of “Aren’t you cute!” at the Eskimo baby.

also on "Birth": "you see the sunset in her sighs and fill her eyes with dew" it's near the end.. needs to be heard to be believed

"Birth" also features the lyrics: "don't forget the alamo"

in “The Walrus Hunt,” after you hear them “kill” the “walrus,” the chanting is “Breakfast! Breakfast! Great for us! Bowls of wheat! Oh boy, oh boy, it cant be beat!” some people think the "bowls of wheat" are "pounds of meat"

"Please don't squeeze the Charmin -Hey Mr. Whipple"

"Coca Cola adds Life! We want coke, oh yeah!"

"Chicken shack-ah chicken shack-a chicken shack-a-HEY! Chuck-a-rock-ah chuck-a-rock-ah chuck-a-rock-a HEY! Chuck a rock ah cupcake étouffée!"

sounds like "we don’t know how to pray" in “A Spirit Steals A Child.”

"Are we not men? We are Devo!" on Festival of Death

Here is my attempt at transcribing the version of Diskomo from Land of Mystery:


ahwoo

aghawagawaaaah

ahhh ahh ahh ahhh

agaweegihwoo

oov america bee geh ga way go woo today

on le do dee aw way woo (i sort of hear 'cross the world' in these throat screams)

uhma gemmon way

oova man aw oova male oh oova oova wreh

don't forget the alamo

they won't give up that

kee la leh mo numoo thah ee o eah

ceh le la lo kehhh le lei mo

ke le le le alamo won't never give up that

ke alamo ke alamo kooa dehhh...

yo ya yo ya yo dey kant do dou

ke al do day key ah do da kay a do de do dooou

ka yo yeh ka ka ko kay ka ka ko cay dou wo

dooooooowhoaaaaaaaa do

 ("The Angry Angakok"?): "Go take a hike, to Peak of Pike, And speak in Peakinese. Oh peak on, peak on, pecan pie. Oh peak on pecan pie!"

Tribe:
Ca-Ca-Ca ( x 16 )
Caah ( x 16 )
Angakok:
Chooky wooky took a cake
To make on Tennessee
Cause to see to see to see
To see come Ceasaro
Mero my name mero my name
Mero my name I know -
I know I see Zaro Mero -
Your love shine lika tree
Your love shine lika tree
Your love shine lika tree.
Is it or does it ( please )
A woodchuck or a crow.
That-that Uncle Tom has-has left it seems
To find some seeds to sow.
O, Cook a book. O, cook a book.
O, Cook a book a day.
Cause even if an acorn eats it
We don't have to pay.
Wooo, Wooo, O cook a book
Hah Wah Waaaaah
( Challenger heard screaming as wind swells )

I have been itching for years to comprehend the Angakok's words near the end of "Festival of Death"! Any good ears out there?
