Roll Like a Cantaloupe

On four occasions in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s (10/15/86, 7/12/88, 3/11/90 and 11/14/91), Phish performed this delicious variation on “Run Like an Antelope.” Though the lyrics referencing a trip to the grocery store are different, the message of unbridled enthusiasm towards life remains the same.
