tropical hotdog night

In 1978, Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band
released the album "Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller)",
which included the tune, 
"It's a Tropical Hotdog Night".
The song became vernaculus familia.  
At least in my familia.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure this is what one looks like.

What a treat to witness a sound turned to a sight! I can't help but wonder if mango relish goes on that tropical hotdog. Wait, I think I got that wrong!

I've don't know the song but I like the painting. I thought it was a baobob tree but I guess it's a hotdog tree.
