Patti Smith Says Goodbye to Aqua Teen Hunger Force With Beautiful Elegy


If you’ve ever wanted to hear Patti Smith sing the names of your favorite characters from Aqua Teen Hunger Force—not Carl–your day has finally come! I know it’s a pretty niche fantasy, but really anyone can enjoy the mournful original ballad Smith performed to say goodbye to the cult show, which is ending this weekend. Grab a tissue; the way that she sings “meatwad” is just beyond.

Here are the lyrics, which make no sense but are also very profound:

I never dreamed
I’d be an Aqua Teen
Thirteen seasons
What did it mean?
A Master Shake
Meatwad, a floating head
And now you’re dead
And it’s the end
Of “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”
It’s the end
Of “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”

Miss you forever, Master Shake!
