Can't recall which three Phish songs mention fish? Want to name a pet with their lyrics without having yet another cat named Tela? Want to know the name of a song but can only remember that it mentions Paris or Aquitana? Want to know how many tools or toys appear in Phish lyrics? Want to find out about Elihu but can’t find the song history because you don’t know the title of that song? Now, you can!
Originally published in the second edition of The Phish Companion, the Lyrics Index is now completely revised, updated, and connected from the site's navigation menu (under Music). This is a selective topical index of over 4,000 song references for more than 1,750 words and phrases that appear in the lyrics of more than 225 Phish originals, all organized in 45 topical categories.
The growth of the index, including both corrections and additional (post-TPC2) songs, is due in large part to the assistance of forum regulars Axilla_Part_2_Not_Part_1, BBFCFNJ, forbin1, karmapolice, johnnyd, phan83, ToxicPastePurpleWaste, and WGphan92. Thank you for your help!

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
