"Dancing with the One-Legged..." is the fourteenth track on the 1995 release Smells Like Children. It is an interlude composed of a sample of a 1994 interview on a talk show with Phil Donahue. The "one-legged" referred to in the title was a Huggy Bear doll (the pimp from Starsky & Hutch) that the band used as a container for drugs; it had one leg.

Lyrics[edit]

    (Manson):
    ...You're gonna have a bunch of angry kids.
    
    (Audience guest):
    Well when you do go out to a club, that, you just gotta 
    watch yourself whatever you do.
    You just can't expect to go out there and just dance 
    and don't get touched and non-violent
    because that's what it is. The music...
    
    (Donahue):
    I, I don't see how you...
    
    (Audience member):
    If you get the music inside your soul, anything can happen.
    You don't play the music, you can't get it. It's the music.
    
    (Donahue):
    The music?
    
    (Parent):
    Music is dangerous.
    
    (Concerned citizen):
    My sympathy to the parents...
