I got squirrels in my nose.
And they are happy.
Happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy
'Cuz they are friends with the chickens that are in there, too.

A long tune. But it could have been longer! We were going to have it be exactly 20 minutes long. I fact, we had an early mix that was timed so there was exactly to the second ten minutes of the opening lick, that goes on for one minute on the recording you have. Just think about that for a moment... 10 minutes... I mean, your sanity would literally trickle out your ear and on to your shirt collar. Anyway, cooler head prevailed and we did just one minute. Still haven't decided if that was the best choice?
