Notes About This Song
The opening theme will return in Bwana Dik, a song about a guy’s fixation on penis size, on Fillmore East, June 1971. Sneaking a reprise of the main theme of an album that deals in part with the twisting of the male mind in a society of dictated appeal into a song about a guy’s description of his own genitals is pretty crafty. This subject’s alluded to later on Lumpy Gravy when a cigar’s brought up during Roy and Louie’s dialogue.
