# Ecco una bella curiosità, certificata nel 1997 nei Guinness dei primati.

Si intitola The Devil Glitch, ed non sarebbe nemmeno male se quel pazzo di Chris Butler non l’avesse così allungata da farci… un intero album, pubblicato nel 1996 di ben 69 minuti che si chiama proprio come questa incredibile super-canzone.

Di seguito la versione più corta (di 5 minuti) con (parte) del testo:

## Testo The Devil Glitch:

Sometimes you can fix something by just being a prick

Winning by intimidation

Sometimes you can fix something by just lifting your skirt

It’s the ultimate distraction

I poke button

I want action

Let’s hear some gears and see some smoke

No dilly-dally

This is the age of “go for broke”

Sometimes you can fix something by just kissing some ass

If you don’t mind humiliation

Sometimes you can fix something by just smoking a pipe

So pathetic

No mechanic

No steady eye, no magic touch

No screwdriver

Ball-peen hammer

And Mr. Fix-it’s gone to lunch

Not personal?

Yeah it’s personal

What did I ever do to you?

No crap from

Contraptions

Just do what I tell you to do
Sometimes you can fix something by just blaming your mom

Everybody loves a victim

Sometimes you can fix something by just cracking a joke

Humor is greasy lubrication

Sometimes you can fix something by just cooking the books

Sometimes you can fix something by just smoking a joint

Stoner free association

Broke down, lifeless

Junkyard worthless

No tweezer Jesus in the house

So desperate

So dependent

Pay any price to dope it out

I want genius

I wanna suss

The perfect kluge, the devil glitch

Oh, hosanna

Socket messiah

The only Jesus worth a shit

Craftsmanship demands precision

Sometimes you can fix something with total control

Aim plan for global domination

Sometimes you can fix something by just being a cheat

Mastermind the final outcome

Sometimes you can fix something by just being tough

You gotta learn to take rejection

Sometimes you can fix something by just being scared

Heros never seem to live long

Sometimes you can fix something by just taking a class

Learn new techniques, new information

Sometimes you can fix something by just building a wall

There’s such a thing as too much freedom

Sometimes you can fix something by just tightening your belt

Learn to live within restrictions

Sometimes you can fix something by just busting loose

Don’t let ‘em squish your self-expression

Sometimes you can fix something by just shutting up

Let someone smarter do the talking

Sometimes you can fix something by just coming in last

But wait till next season

Sometimes you can fix something by just holding out

Wear away the opposition
Sometimes you can fix something by just being a fool

When they try and pull a fast one

They’re always trying to sell you something

Sometimes you can fix something by just saying no

Take an intractable position

Sometimes you can fix something by just saying yes

If they can meet all your conditions

Sometimes you can fix something with just the right spin

Make ‘em question what they’re seeing

Sometimes you can fix something by just changing your mind

There’s nothing wrong with indecision

Sometimes you can fix something by just building a fort

Hunker down for the duration
Sometimes you can fix something by just changing sides

A cure for mental constipation

Everything in moderation

Sometimes you can fix something by just taking the heat

Or get out of the kitchen

Sometimes you can fix something by just passing the buck

Blame it on another person

Sometimes you can fix something by just turning around

Try a mid-course correction

Sometimes you can fix something by just trying to cope

With patience, tact and stoicism

Antidisestablishmentarianism

Tie him up in litigation

Sometimes you can fix something by just going home

Maybe the answer’s back in Cleveland

Though you may risk electrocution

Sometimes you can fix something with just a better glue

Sometimes you can fix something by just paying ‘em off

Then get on with what you’re doing

Sometimes you can fix something by not being home

Avoid unwanted solicitations

Sometimes you can fix something by just having the stones

If you can’t get no satisfaction

Sometimes you can fix something by just listening to The Who

Sing “my-my-my gen-gen-generation”

Though Tommy’s such a stupid album

Sometimes you can fix something by just speaking your mind

That right is in the constitution

Sometimes you can fix something by just biting your tongue

They say silence is golden

Sometimes you can fix something by just writing a book

Go on talk shows ‘round the nation

Sometimes you can fix something by just reading a book

Turn off that goddamn television

Sometimes you can fix something by just having a snack

Sometimes you can fix something by just wondering why

Sometimes you can fix something by not wondering why

‘Cause sometimes answers are a prison

Sometimes you can fix something by just buying the beer

Get to know your new companions

Sometimes you can fix something by just taking a trip

The greatest place on Earth is Iceland

If they deserve it, give ‘em some

Sometimes you can fix something by just flipping ‘em the bird

Though that invites retaliation

Sometimes you can fix something with just a little paint

Cover up those imperfections

Sometimes you can fix something by throwing the baby out with the bathwater

A cliché’s okay if it’s a good one
