Verse 1: Jimmy’s window zippers can mean two different things Neither of which have ever been used by Jimmy One is a tool for opening painted over windows The other is a soft top clear cover for a Jeep Wrangler Chorus: La la la la, window zippers La la la la, window zippers La la la la, window zippers La la la la, window zippers Verse 2: Window zippers mean nothing to him It’s just the internet that tells of these things He doesn’t own a Jeep or painted over windows Jimmy’s windows aren’t painted closed Now this album is coming to an end You never need to hear this tune ever again From window lickers to window zippers Let’s end the album on window zippers.

about

Once upon a time during a practice, James The Lead Guitarist was called away for a work issue. The other band members expressed their frustrations by writing a song called "Jimmy And The Window Lickers".

Amidst concerns of the not-very-politically-correct aspect of this song title, alternatives were brainstormed. With all the alternative titles flowing, it was decided to write lyrics for all of them.

The album can be interpreted as a metaphor for the lack of originality in modern music. Being more of a piece of art representing a particular social commentary, rather than a music album, it is priced accordingly: the persona who might want to own this album is also the persona who would respect the artistic nature of the project and pay for that.

The work can be largely summarised by the first few seconds of the first track, and the last few seconds of the final track.
