This curious original is quite a rarity, with only two known performances, on 9/12/88 and 5/26/89. When one realizes the origins of the song – it was made up on the spot to extend the band’s set – one may cease questioning its absence from Phish’s current live show. 

Submit notes/corrections is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
