about

This was the first single from The Bad Plants major label debut back in 1982.

lyrics

Emerge from slumber in insect form
all 6 of my legs push along the floor
I am a roach man nothing more
won't leave my house lock the door

I am the roach man
and I won't live this way
I am the roach man
and this is my final day

I won't live this way I won't I can't
I'm a roach after all not even an ant
call the extermination hotline
send who ever I'm sure they'll do just fine

I am the roach man
and I won't live this way
I am the roach man
and this is my final day

Unlock the door let him in
bugs get big here he says with a grin
empty the tank turn out the lights
breathe in deep without a fight

I am the roach man
and I won't live this way
I am the roach man
and this is my final day

at that one moment
the siren sounds
the flash of heat
and mushroom cloud
burn man and woman
all those around
turned to ash
in fiery mounds
in Russian blasted
burial grounds
the roach unfazed
we rule now
king of the wasteland
i am crowned

I AM THE ROACH MAN

they call me roach king
fly on my golden wings
