"Kamakazi Lady" (alternatively spelled "Kamakaze Lady", "Kamikazi Lady" and "Kamikaze Lady") is a song by Residents, Uninc..

Initially featured on their 1971 demo tape B.S., "Kamakazi Lady" was also filmed for inclusion in the film Vileness Fats, and the B.S. version has since been officially released on the Residue of The Residents and Residue Deux compilations.

Renditions of the song are known to have been performed by Residents, Uninc. as a kind of "game", in which the members of the group would attempt to perform increasingly disturbing deliveries of the lyrics.[1]

The track was performed live at The Mummy Show, as well as featuring on the setlists of the 13th Anniversary and Disfigured Night tours. In later years, it is known to have been used by the group as a means of covering for a technical failure onstage, due to its simplicity and semi-improvised musical style.[2]

Lyrics

Kamakazi Lady slips in at night
She likes to check and see if your underwear's tight
She knows the way to open up the holes in your head
And see the silly sucker that you thought was dead
The floating locust garden of your old sweet fondling dreams
Kamakazi Lady slips in at night
She likes to check and see if your underwear's tight
She knows the way to open up the holes in your head
And see the silly sucker that you thought was dead
The night meal of the milque wheats
I ate it to the treats
Kamakazi Lady slips in at night
She likes to check and see if your underwear's tight
She knows the way to open up the holes in your head
And see the silly sucker that you thought was dead
