Notes About This Song
- Recorded at the Paramount Studios, Hollywood on April 14th, 1972.
- FZ, from The Complete History Of The Few Last Weeks Of The Mothers Of Invention (1972):
"About six weeks ago, I finished the book and lyrics for a science fiction musical called Hunchentoot (which may never be staged), and under the title "Think It Over," this piece is used as an aria, sung by a religious fanatic con man of the future, as an instruction to his Alpha-meditating followers:
If Something Gets in Your Way,
Just think it over
And it will fall down, etc.
But, as an instrumental item, it goes under the title-disguise of "The Grand Wazoo." It doesn't require too much in the way of scientific explanation. It's just a shuffle."
