Such a great songwriter. I remember when people too dumb to understand the song broke records and ranted about him attacking short people. He was pretty much off the radio after that.

I started listening to him in the early 70s. His song Sail Away - as well as the rest of the album are great.
He turns things in such a way that while listening to a sweet song, you suddenly realize that he's describing a horror.
Burn On describes a river so polluted that it is on fire, but the sound of the song is praiseful.

Sail Away is essentially a commercial promoting the wonders of slavery.

Sail Away
Randy Newman
In America you'll get food to eat
Won't have to run through the jungle
And scuff up your feet
You'll just sing about Jesus and drink wine all day
It's great to be an American
Ain't no lions or tigers ain't no mamba snake
Just the sweet watermelon and the buckwheat cake
Everybody is as happy as a man can be
Climb aboard little wog sail away with me
Sail away sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
Sail away-sail away
We will cross the mighty ocean into Charleston Bay
In America every man is free
