Alice's Restaurant Massacree

Arlo Guthrie

This song is called Alice's Restaurant, and it's about Alice, andthe restaurant, but Alice's Restaurant is not the name of therestaurant, that's just the name of the song, and that's why I called thesong Alice's Restaurant. You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant Walk right in it's around the back Just a half a mile from the railroad track You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago, was on - two years agoon Thanksgiving, when my friend and I went up to visit Alice atthe restaurant, but Alice doesn't live in the restaurant, she livesin the church nearby the restaurant, in the bell-tower, with her husbandRay and Fasha the dog. And livin' in the bell tower like that, they got alot of room downstairs where the pews used to be in. Havin' all thatroom, seein' as how they took out all the pews, they decided that theydidn't have to take out their garbage for a long time. We got up there, we found all the garbage in there, and wedecided it'd be a friendly gesture for us to take the garbage down to the citydump. So we took the half a ton of garbage, put it in the back of a redVW microbus, took shovels and rakes and implements of destructionand headed on toward the city dump. Well we got there and there was a big sign and a chain acrossacross the dump saying, "Closed on Thanksgiving." And we had never heard ofa dump closed on Thanksgiving before, and with tears in our eyes wedrove off into the sunset looking for another place to put the garbage. We didn't find one. Until we came to a side road, and off theside of the side road there was another fifteen foot cliff and at the bottomof the cliff there was another pile of garbage. And we decided that onebig pile is better than two little piles, and rather than bring that oneup we decided to throw our's down. That's what we did, and drove back to the church, had athanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat, went to sleep and didn't get upuntil the next morning, when we got a phone call from officer Obie. Hesaid, "Kid, we found your name on an envelope at the bottom of a half a tonof garbage, and just wanted to know if you had any information aboutit." And I said, "Yes, sir, Officer Obie, I cannot tell a lie, I put thatenvelope under that garbage." After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on thetelephone we finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we hadto go down and pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to himat the police officer's station. So we got in the red VW microbus withthe shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed ontoward the police officer's station. Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie couldadone at the police station, and the first was he could have given us amedal for being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't verylikely, and we didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawledus out and told us never to be see driving garbage around the vicinityagain, which is what we expected, but when we got to the policeofficer's station there was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon,and we was both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, Idon't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on." He said, "Shutup, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car." And that's what we did, sat in the back of the patrol car anddrove to the quote Scene of the Crime unquote. I want tell you about the townof Stockbridge, Massachusets, where this happened here, they gotthree stop signs, two police officers, and one police car, but when we gotto the Scene of the Crime there was five police officers and threepolice cars, being the biggest crime of the last fifty years, and everybodywanted to get in the newspaper story about it. And they was using up allkinds of cop equipment that they had hanging around the police officer'sstation. They was taking plaster tire tracks, foot prints, dog smellingprints, and they took twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy photographswith circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explainingwhat each one was to be used as evidence against us. Took pictures of theapproach, the getaway, the northwest corner the southwest corner and that'snot to mention the aerial photography. After the ordeal, we went back to the jail. Obie said he wasgoing to put us in the cell. Said, "Kid, I'm going to put you in the cell, Iwant your wallet and your belt." And I said, "Obie, I can understand youwanting my wallet so I don't have any money to spend in the cell, but whatdo you want my belt for?" And he said, "Kid, we don't want anyhangings." I said, "Obie, did you think I was going to hang myself forlittering?" Obie said he was making sure, and friends Obie was, cause he tookout the toilet seat so I couldn't hit myself over the head and drown, andhe took out the toilet paper so I couldn't bend the bars roll out the -roll the toilet paper out the window, slide down the roll and have anescape. Obie was making sure, and it was about four or five hours later thatAlice (remember Alice? It's a song about Alice), Alice came by and witha few nasty words to Obie on the side, bailed us out of jail, and wewent back to the church, had a another thanksgiving dinner that couldn't bebeat, and didn't get up until the next morning, when we all had to goto court. We walked in, sat down, Obie came in with the twenty seveneight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph onthe back of each one, sat down. Man came in said, "All rise." We allstood up, and Obie stood up with the twenty seven eight-by-ten colourglossy pictures, and the judge walked in sat down with a seeing eye dog,and he sat down, we sat down. Obie looked at the seeing eye dog, andthen at the twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with circles andarrows and a paragraph on the back of each one, and looked at the seeingeye dog. And then at twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy pictures withcircles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one and began tocry, 'cause Obie came to the realization that it was a typical case ofAmerican blind justice, and there wasn't nothing he could do about it, andthe judge wasn't going to look at the twenty seven eight-by-tencolour glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the backof each one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence againstus. And we was fined $50 and had to pick up the garbage in the snow, butthats not what I came to tell you about. Came to talk about the draft. They got a building down New York City, it's called WhitehallStreet, where you walk in, you get injected, inspected, detected,infected, neglected and selected. I went down to get my physicalexamination one day, and I walked in, I sat down, got good and drunk the nightbefore, so I looked and felt my best when I went in that morning. `Cause Iwanted to look like the all-American kid from New York City, man I wanted,I wanted to feel like the all-, I wanted to be the all American kid fromNew York, and I walked in, sat down, I was hung down, brung down, hung up,and all kinds o' mean nasty ugly things. And I waked in and sat down andthey gave me a piece of paper, said, "Kid, see the phsychiatrist, room604." And I went up there, I said, "Shrink, I want to kill. I mean, Iwanna, I wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood andgore and guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill,Kill, KILL, KILL." And I started jumpin up and down yelling, "KILL,KILL," and he started jumpin up and down with me and we was both jumping upand down yelling, "KILL, KILL." And the sargent came over, pinned a medalon me, sent me down the hall, said, "You're our boy." Didn't feel too good about it. Proceeded on down the hall gettin more injections, inspections, detections, neglections and all kinds of stuff that they wasdoin' to me at the thing there, and I was there for two hours, three hours,four hours, I was there for a long time going through all kinds ofmean nasty ugly things and I was just having a tough time there, and theywas inspecting, injecting every single part of me, and they wasleaving no part untouched. Proceeded through, and when I finally came tothe see the last man, I walked in, walked in sat down after a whole big thingthere, and I walked up and said, "What do you want?" He said, "Kid, weonly got one question. Have you ever been arrested?" And I proceeded to tell him the story of the Alice's RestaurantMassacre, with full orchestration and five part harmony and stuff like thatand all the phenome... - and he stopped me right there and said, "Kid,did you ever go to court?" And I proceeded to tell him the story of the twenty seveneight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and theparagraph on the back of each one, and he stopped me right there and said,"Kid, I want you to go and sit down on that bench that says Group W .... NOWkid!!" And I, I walked over to the, to the bench there, and there is,Group W's where they put you if you may not be moral enough to join thearmy after committing your special crime, and there was all kinds of meannasty ugly looking people on the bench there. Mother rapers. Fatherstabbers. Father rapers! Father rapers sitting right there on the bench next tome! And they was mean and nasty and ugly and horrible crime-type guyssitting on the bench next to me. And the meanest, ugliest, nastiest one, themeanest father raper of them all, was coming over to me and he was mean'n' ugly 'n' nasty 'n' horrible and all kind of things and he sat downnext to me and said, "Kid, whad'ya get?" I said, "I didn't get nothing, Ihad to pay $50 and pick up the garbage." He said, "What were you arrestedfor, kid?" And I said, "Littering." And they all moved away from me on thebench there, and the hairy eyeball and all kinds of mean nasty things,till I said, "And creating a nuisance." And they all came back, shookmy hand, and we had a great time on the bench, talkin about crime, motherstabbing, father raping, all kinds of groovy things that we was talkingabout on the bench. And everything was fine, we was smoking cigarettes andall kinds of things, until the Sargeant came over, had some paper in his hand,held it up and said. "Kids,this-piece-of-paper's-got-47-words-37-sentences-58-words-we-wanna- know-details-of-the-crime-time-of-the-crime-and-any-other-kind-of-thing- you-gotta-say-pertaining-to-and-about-the-crime-I-want-to-know-arresting- officer's-name-and-any-other-kind-of-thing-you-gotta-say", andtalked for forty-five minutes and nobody understood a word that he said, butwe had fun filling out the forms and playing with the pencils on thebench there, and I filled out the massacre with the four part harmony, andwrote it down there, just like it was, and everything was fine and I putdown the pencil, and I turned over the piece of paper, and there, there onthe other side, in the middle of the other side, away from everythingelse on the other side, in parentheses, capital letters, quotated, readthe following words: ("KID, HAVE YOU REHABILITATED YOURSELF?") I went over to the sargent, said, "Sargeant, you got a lot a damngall to ask me if I've rehabilitated myself, I mean, I mean, I mean thatjust, I'm sittin' here on the bench, I mean I'm sittin here on the Group Wbench 'cause you want to know if I'm moral enough join the army, burnwomen, kids, houses and villages after bein' a litterbug." He looked atme and said, "Kid, we don't like your kind, and we're gonna send youfingerprints off to Washington." And friends, somewhere in Washington enshrined in some littlefolder, is a study in black and white of my fingerprints. And the only reasonI'm singing you this song now is cause you may know somebody in asimilar situation, or you may be in a similar situation, and if your ina situation like that there's only one thing you can do and that'swalk into the shrink wherever you are ,just walk in say "Shrink, You canget anything you want, at Alice's restaurant.". And walk out. Youknow, if one person, just one person does it they may think he's reallysick and they won't take him. And if two people, two people do it, inharmony, they may think they're both faggots and they won't take either ofthem. And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three peoplewalking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. They maythink it's an organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,Isaid fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurantand walking out. And friends they may thinks it's a movement. And that's what it is , the Alice's Restaurant Anti-MassacreMovement, and all you got to do to join is sing it the next time it come'saround on the guitar. With feeling. So we'll wait for it to come around on the guitar,here and sing it when it does. Here it comes. You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant Walk right in it's around the back Just a half a mile from the railroad track You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant That was horrible. If you want to end war and stuff you got tosing loud. I've been singing this song now for twenty five minutes. I couldsing it for another twenty five minutes. I'm not proud... or tired. So we'll wait till it comes around again, and this time with fourpart harmony and feeling. We're just waitin' for it to come around is what we're doing. All right now. You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant Excepting Alice You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant Walk right in it's around the back Just a half a mile from the railroad track You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant Da da da da da da da dum At Alice's Restaurant
