Hmmm. IIRC, the song is "Flakes", from the album "Sheik Yerbuti".  Zappa
wasn't the vocalist, although he does contribute a sotto voce "you want
some mandies, Bob...?" halfway through the verse.

The album is a gem: Dancing Fool, Jewish Princess and Bobby Brown are
all on it too, I think --it's a while since I've dragged out my old vinyl...

Thanks for that Tim, it was bugging me.
I was exposed to a great deal of Zappa in my youth, I am still recovering.
