about

Henry Metal California

Henry Metal remembers a time when bass and drums roared whilst sweet vocals and guitars soared. His musical message of absolute, unrelenting resistance to everything captures our darker nature in vibration and language and serves it up with a savory, steaming side of 'wah wah do diddle diddle da da'.

Bottom line? Life is short. Celebrate Henry's entire catalog ASAP.

Track Name: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet
You seen nothing

You wanna mess with me you'd better think again
You'll be messin' with the karate, my friend

You seen nothing

I'm like a turbojet, you ain't seen nothin' yet
I'll smash your kitcheonette with my bayonet
I'll win the long bet and leave you in debt
I'll hit the reformat on your diskette

You'd better realize my Tae Kwon Do is unchecked
You'd better recognize my Jujitsu moves are select

You think you're clever but you'd better step with care
And if you anger me you'd better say a prayer

You've seen nothing

And should you step to me you'd better step correct
Unless you'd like to feel a fist and face connect

You've seen nothing

I'm like a turbojet, you ain't seen nothin' yet
I'll smash your kitcheonette with my bayonet
I'll win the long bet and leave you in debt
I'll hit the reformat on your diskette

You'd better realize my Tae Kwon Do is unchecked
You'd better recognize my Jujitsu moves are select

I've got the moves... I've got the moves... I've got the power!

(solo)

My kicks are deadly and they doth connect
With the fools that withhold their full respect
A heathy dose of fear is what I will inject

And if it's sarcasm that I do detect
You'd better recognize my power's full effect
And should you move to strike you know I'll redirect

(solo)

You know I'm dead set, you ain't seen nothin' yet
I cook with vinagrette and play the claironet
I'll snatch your assets up in my fishing net
You gonna regret, wake up in a cold sweat

You'd better realize my Tae Kwon Do is unchecked
You'd better recognize my Jujitsu moves are quite select
Track Name: Wrist Is Pissed
Silence! Your tongue hath offended
In a manner most unsplendid
A cacophonous stew of malfeasance brews
Behind your lips
And after this, I must insist that we cease
To reminisce

You shall not see the face today
Communication shall be one way
Sure as the Dark One rules this land
You shall be speaking to the hand

Talk to the hand 'cause the wrist is pissed
This day you shall be dissed

Silence! Please do bestow
And may your words abide in escrow
With that sweet part of man we call the hand
I'll take my stand
Come now let's rediscover
What is known best to the glover

You shall not see the face today
Communication shall be one way
Sure as the Dark One rules this land
You shall be speaking with the hand

Talk to the hand 'cause the wrist is pissed
This day you shall be dissed... Dissed

Down, down below the wrist
There's something that you might've missed
And so it's here that I insist
You turn your attention now to this...

No appointment with the face today
Communication shall be one way
Sure as the Dark One rules this land
You shall speak to the friggin' hand

Talk to the hand 'cause the wrist is pissed
This day you shall be dissed... Dissed... Dissed... Dissed
Track Name: Butthead Maven
From the swamps, from the swamps you arise
You have come here to criticize
All of us, while you glamorize
How you been, how you be livin' that sweet life
… and renting cars from Enterprise

Now I see what you be
According to me, well...

You're a butthead maven
Just a butthead maven

You think that you're great, but I don't think your first rate
And I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your butt!

I don't mean to dramaticize
But I need you to realize
How you're always sayin' bs and lies
Hangin' out with some stupid guys
… eatin' fries at a franchise

Now I see what you be
According to me, well, it seems...

You're a butthead maven
Just a butthead maven

You think that you're cool, but I know you're a fool
And I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your butt!

You're a butthead maven
Just a butthead maven

You think that you're great, ah but I do not think you're first rate
And I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your, I will kick your butt!
Track Name: Henry's Saga
take the sword out of the stone (right now)
eat the meat right off the bone
enjoy the meat and if you've found
a piece of gristle spit it out

actually, I'm not really sure what that last part was all about
maybe, maybe someday, togther we can figure it out

right about now i'd like to say
the middle of the tune 'bout to get heavy
just in case you don't want to wait
i'll come correct with a melody... and it go...

la la la la.... LA....

when henry metal's here there is no need to fear
guitars are crystal clear and drums are in your ear
when bass is rumblin' 'neath, it may tighten you sheath
and make you scream and shout and prance a bit about

and there may come a day when you cannot convey
how good it truly feels to rock so steadily
and riff so heavily with style and brevity
making no frenemies but only melodies

henry metal... henry metal... henry metal... henry

so now with earth, water, fire and air
and blessings from below and above
shall I now retire to my lair
to create the tunes that you love
Track Name: God You're So Hot
it's friday night
and it's time a git crunk
we gonna party harder
than you ever thunk...

walkin' with my buddy's on these mean city streets
we be lookin' for something yummy to eat
we lookin'' tough, we feelin' mean
aw but that's when I saw her on the other side of the street

God you're so f*cking hot
I haven't seen you in the hood
God you're so f*cking hot
Why do you choose to look so good?
God you're so fucking hot
I think my heart just skipped a beat
God you're so fucking hot
The most beautiful girl on Main Street

I been workin' like a dog all friggin' week
I was just funsta git upon my tweek
Now I find myself walkin' on thin air
Simply because I done saw you're fine butt standing there

(Chorus)

I never felt like this
suddenly my world fell aprat
my life for just one kiss
bestill my beating heart

All my life I've waited
you are the only one I've sought
now I know we were fated (fated)
God why are you so f*cking hot?

solo

God you're so f*cking hot
To be with you always I swear
god you're so f*cking hot
My life with you I long to share
God you're so fucking hot
I love you beyond compare
God you're so fucking hot
here, there and everywhere
Track Name: Workin' for the Man
Workin' for the man... Workin' for the man

Workin' for the man but I get little pay
I think they like it that way
That way they keep all the dough
And vacation in Ol' Mexico

Workin' for the man... Talkin' bout workin' for the man

Workin' for the man but I get few ducats
And I'm about to say fuck it
Who is this system for?
They stealin' money out the back door
Workin for the man... Workin' for the man

Workin' for the man but I get little pay
Not even on my birthday
It's barely enough to purchase quality hairspray
Workin' for the man... It's no good to be
Workin' for the man


You shall be reborn into the pit
In an ugly sweater that you hath knit
and it doesn't fit
You shall be reborn into the pit
With an ugly haircut you hypocrite

Workin' for the man every night and day
So that some stupid crap I can pay
Workin' for the man in every single way
So that some stupid tax I can pay
Workin' for the man... Workin' for the man

And the man has convinced us
that he doesn't exist
But the man is within us
And he makes me pissed

Workin' for the man
It is a very bad plan
When you're workin' for the man
Rest assured you've got a very bad plan

(Solo) Go... Continue

Boys and girls from around the world
Whether you're Jamaican or Irish, Mon, it makes no difference
The important thing is that you stand with me and say
“F*ck the man!”
“F*ck the man!”

You shall be reborn into the pit
In a tight pair of pants that doesn't fit
And looks like sh*t
You shall be reborn into the pit
With an expired permit you hypocrit
Track Name: Terrible Driver
Driving in your car, moving in my lane
Failing to signal yeah you're causing me pain
Speeding up now just to block me
So's that I cannot get off at my exit

Terrible driver, terrible man
Inconsiderate human...

You say you got somewhere that you gotta be
Well guess what my brother you know so do we
You're doing something stupid with a poker face
You have no respect for rules that are in place

I know you think that you're more important than us other folks
We'd be better off if privileges were revoked

Flooring it in your Toyota Camry
It is something that I think we can agree
is a very much annoying thing to see
Cause this is not the Grand Prix

Terrible driver, terrible man
It's as if you simply cannot understand
How to deal with humans on the road or in life
Causing Consternation, Causing me strife

There's room behind but you cut in front of me
You are a jackman of the very first degree
No Ipass for the tollway
So I sit behind you while you pull coins from the ashtray

And you think it's ok because you don't drive that much
But allow me to assure you your driving's out of touch

You're in the left lane and you're going slow as heck
And when I pass you I just have to turn my neck
To see the creature that sits behind the wheel
Callous to the fact you've caused me an ordeal

Terrible driver, terrible man
It's as if you simply cannot understand
How to deal with humans on the road or in life
Causing Consternation, Causing me strife

10 car lengths ahead of you in the left lane
Impatient turning at the four way...

Solo

So take out the pamphlet from the DMV
Re-read that sucker baby a couple one, two, three
Get your spiral notebook and scribble down with me
Some helpful reminders so that you'll no longer be

Terrible driver, terrible man
It's as if you simply cannot understand
How to deal with humans on the road or in life
Causing Consternation, Causing me strife
Track Name: Squeeze You
In times of untold treachery
You are a constant reverie
We had a romance plenary
A bittersweet memory

But now it seems our love hath waned
You are no longer entertained

But I gotta gotta...
Squeeze you, please you
Wine you, goat cheese you

and I gotta gotta...
Tease you, appease you
Seize you, grease you

In days of old we lit the flame
I couldn't even remember your name
Only that you were quite a dame
And we did play our sexy games

But now it seems our love hath waned
You are no longer entertained

But I gotta gotta...
Squeeze you, please you
Wine you, goat cheese you

and I gotta gotta...
Tease you, appease you
Seize you, grease you

Under a moonlit sky we kissed
And put an ad up on Craigslist
In an effort to enlist
Someone to roleplay proctologist

(Solo)

It seems your feminine wiles are restrained
But my erection is maintained

And I gotta gotta...
Squeeze you, please you
Wine you, goat cheese you

and I gotta gotta...
Tease you, appease you
Seize you, grease you
Track Name: Boss of Me
from this day forth I make a decree
if you say A then I gotta say B
and if you then say B then I go back to A
for you and I must always be an idiosyncrasy

cause you don't want to harvest me
you just wanna set me free

cause you're not the boss of me
you're not the boss of me
even if we live to be 103
you're not the boss of me

you are always trying to tell me what to think
maybe it's time you and I sat down for a drink
to discuss the fact that I don't think you're that smart
and you will never get us to take part in your brain farts... anymore

always trying to spin a narrative
to see through your garbage is imperative

cause you're not the boss of me
you're not the boss of me
even if we live to be 103
you're not the boss of me

cause you, you're the problem
you, you're the problem
yeah you might be a golem
oh you, you're the problem

to solve, and evolve, to solve, and evolve...

cause you're not the boss of me
you're not the boss of me
even if we live to be 103
you're not the boss of me

cause you're not the boss of me
you're not the boss of me
even if we live to be 203
you'll never be the boss of me
