A straightforward rock song, "Camarillo Brillo" describes one peculiar woman. She had a wild set of hair (Camarillo is a California town where there was a mental institution, Brillo is a trademark for steel wool cleaning pads), "she could throw a mean tarot," had "a snake for a pet/And an amulet.".

Camarillo brillo Flamin' out along her head, I mean her Mendocino bean-o By where some bugs had made it red She ruled the Toads of the Short Forest And every newt in Idaho And every cricket who had chorused By the bush in Buffalo She said she was A Magic Mama And she could throw a mean Tarot And carried on without a comma That she was someone I should know.
