  Got me a movie
  I want you to know
  Slicing up eyeballs
  I want you to know
  Girlie so groovy
  I want you to know
  Don't know about you
  But I am un chien Andalusia

  I am un chien Andalusia (x3)

  Wanna grow
  Up to be 
  Be a debaser

  Debaser (x5)

  Got me a movie
  Ha ha ha hoa
  Slicing up eyeballs
  Ha ha ha hoa
  Girlie so groovie
  Ha ha ha hoa
  Don't know about you
  But I am un chien Andalusia

  I am un chien Andalusia (x3)

  Debaser (x5)

Based on French surrealistic film "Un Chien Andalou" (An Andalusian Dog), by Spanish director Luis Bunuel (1928). The film starts with the scene in which an eyeball is being cut open.

Andalusia is the Southern region of Spain including Sierra Nevada & valley of the Guadalquivir.

"I wish Bunuel was still alive. He made this film about nothing in particular. The title itself is a nonsense. With my stupid, pseudo-scholar, naive, enthusiast, avant-garde-ish, amateurish way to watch 'Un Chien Andalou' (twice), I thought: 'Yeah, I will make a song about it,' he sings: "un chien andalou"...It sounds too French, so I will sing "un chien andalusia", it sounds good, no?" - Black Francis, translated from a Spanish interview

Tin Machine performed this song on some concerts during the Tin Machine 91 tour. This was probably an early indication of David Bowie's fascination with the Pixies.

Also covered by Loud Family, The Frames and Kerbdog.
