Lyrics

FZ: (...) afternoon... err in the err process of examining the stage
To make sure that it was fit for human consumption
These large objects over here on the side with the horns on top of 'em
You know those speakers there
They... they fell over backwards
And completely mangled Jay Migliori's err woodwind instruments
So Mr. Migliori is at a certain disadvantage this evening
We just thought we'd let you know
Fortunately Mr. Migliori was not sitting there when the cabinets went down
So that part's ok

Well now we got that over with
I'd like to introduce the rest of the lads in the band
And the ladies in the band to all of you here

Let's start up in the top with trumpet number one Malcolm McNab...

And the indispensable Salvatore Marquez...

And on pygmee trumpet and tuba Tom Malone...

And Tom "with one smashed hand" Raney on congas...

And over here in the wind section you already know Jay
Play somethin' Jay...
