[edit] Lyrics

    Doll-dagga buzz-buzz ziggety-zag
    Godmod grotesk burlesk drag
    
    All the goose-step girlies with
    Their cursive faces and
    We know it's all Braille beneath the skirt
    I'm bulletproof bizzop and
    Swing heil and
    I don't really care what gentlemen prefer.
    Say, all you pin-down girls and
    Bonafied ballers, so manically depressed
    And manically dressed
    We got our "Venus Not In Furs"
    But "In Uniforms."
    If You're not dancing, then you're dead.
    Doll-dagga buzz-buzz ziggety-zag
    Godmod grotesk burlesk drag
    Doll-dagga buzz-buzz ziggety-zag
    Godmod grotesk burlesk drag
    
    All the thug rock kids are playin'
    All the punk god angels sayin'
    "The toys are us and we don't even know"
    All the thug rock kids are playin'
    All the punk god angels sayin'
    "The toys are us and we don't even know"
    GO GO GO--doppelgängers
    (You're one of us, you're on of us)
    GO GO GO--throw your shapes doppelgängers
    You're one of us.
    
    Trumpet-mouth junky-saints go
    Silver-tongue marching down the
    Stairway to SUBSTANCE.
    Cocaingels and asses
    Give me opiate masses
    Fill up your church porn preachers
    And we'll fill up our glasses
    Doll-dagga buzz-buzz ziggety-zag
    Godmod grotesk burlesk drag
    Doll-dagga buzz-buzz ziggety-zag
    Godmod grotesk burlesk drag
    
    All the thug rock kids are playin'
    All the punk god angels sayin'
    "The toys are us and we don't even know"
    All the thug rock kids are playin'
    All the punk god angels sayin'
    "The toys are us and we don't even know"
    GO GO GO--doppelgängers
    (You're one of us, you're on of us)
    GO GO GO--throw your shapes doppelgängers
    You're one of us.
    
    Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go
    
    All the thug rock kids, GO
    All the punk god angels, GO
    You're on of us now, you're one of us
    So GO GO GO
    All the thug rock kids, GO
    All the punk god angels, GO
    You're on of us now, you're one of us
    So GO GO GO
    Doll-dagga buzz-buzz ziggety-zag
    Godmod grotesk burlesk drag
    Doll-dagga buzz-buzz ziggety-zag

[edit] Trivia

  • The chorus may be a complicated reference to marijuana, a drug Manson favored in the making of the album. Dagga is a plant native to South Africa, and is often mistaken for Indian hemp. Buzz-Buzz is a term for getting a buzz off a substance, marijuana in particular and a Zig Zag is actually a brand of rolling papers famous for the silhouette of a bearded smoker on the label.
  • The title of the song is similar to Futurist poem ones.
  • Swing heil may refer to 1) sieg heil, a Nazi chant; 2) Swing Kids a.k.a Swingjugend which was a group of kids opposing nazi ideologies and especially the Hitlerjugend
  • Venus not in furs refers to Venus in furs, a novella from Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (the term masochism derives from him name). This could also be a reference to the Velvet Underground song "Venus in Furs".
  • The verse you're one of us, you're one of us refers to a famous line of the horror films Freaks and The Lost Boys.
  • Doll-Dagga is also a verse very similar to "Dolly Dagger", a song by Jimi Hendrix. The naturalness of the essence of both songs about drugs is similar.
  • An edit of the song was featured in the 2012 Citroën DS5 commerical.

  1. "The third track on “The Golden Age of Grotesque” is “Doll-Dagga Buzz-Buzz Ziggety-Zag” (something that Manson takes the time and care to spell out and hyphenate correctly). The title was inspired by legendary scat singer Cab Calloway (“Though not ‘scat’ in the fecal sense,” is his dry postscript)." [1]
