"Flight of the Bootymaster" is the ninth track from The Doubble Donkey Disc. A demo of this song appeared as the sixth track on 1999s Songs of Inaudible Trucks and Cars.



"Bootymaster" was Ryen Slegr's highschool nickname.[1] When Songs of Inaudible Trucks and Cars was re-released on Bandcamp in 2020, this song's demo noticeably had some background noise removed.


Tornado Recordings Version

In the original Tornado Recordings release of The Doubble Donkey Disc, this song had a considerable amount of changes compared to the Kung Fu Records remaster, including the intro not being in split channels, and the breakdown having multiple samples overlaying it, one of which was a slowed-down donkey squeal.[2]


Wesley Willis starts to break down
Feels the beat and hits the dance floor
I will listen to the radio
Still I can't hear you on the telephone

It's a shakedown so count from one to three
And shake your booty 'til the early dawn
You gotta be laid back, rock to obscurity
Then you will really find there's nothing wrong with me

Three months have passed
And no reception has left me searching for another one
And it's too bad that I was believing
That you could ever be more than deceiving

And when I listen to the radio
Now I'm not thinking things about you
And all the things you say that drive me crazy
Could not compare to the things you never say

Now is the end
I will call her a friend
I won't regret what I said (what I said)

When I become a man then I will surely see
That you were just a girl and you were wrong for me

If you would ever call I know that I'd be home
Because I'm waiting and I'm so alone
