TREY: Once upon a time, far, far away from here, there was a small town, a small town, a small town, a small town, small, small.
And on the outskirts of this town, there lived a mean, nasty, furry, ugly hound named Harpua. Harpua roamed the outskirts of the town every day and he’d walk around, looking for a little action.
So of course this day was no different from any other day, and here we start this story. We see Harpua walking around and he’s on the outskirts of the town, near the forest, kind of at the edge of the forest, and he’s walking in towards town.
Harpua walked toward the town (unintelligible). And meanwhile, in the town, in a whole different part of the town, there lived a young boy, all alone in a suburban neighborhood. And every day he would sit in his room, and he’d sit on his little couch, and he’d
FISHMAN: SMOKE POT!
TREY: He’d sit on his little couch and he’d listen to his stereo, and he’d lay back, and he’d look down next to him and he’d pet his favorite little
TREY: Furry little, oh, he loved his little, furry, thing that he’d pet every day while he listened to his stereo
FISHMAN: While sitting on the couch
TREY: He’d pet his little furry
FISHMAN: thing on the couch
TREY: His furry and he sat down and said “I love to pet you, my little furry thing that I, I love you so much that I decided to name you this name that I love, and so I named you, I love you so, and that’s why, that’s why I pet you every day, (music gets erratic) that’s why I named you, that’s why when I first got you and I knew how much I love you I decided that I would give you the name, the moniker, I call you, your name is, I decided your name would have to be, I call you, I call you, I think your name I call you, AHHHH POSTER NUTBAG!
Poster Nutbag sat on the couch next to Jimmy. Poster Nutbag, the furry little kitty-cat. Jimmy’s pet sat next to Jimmy and he looked up at Jimmy, and on this particular day, Poster Nutbag decided to go for a little walk. So Poster Nutbag got up and walked towards the door, and Jimmy went to the door, and he opened up the door and Poster Nutbag went outside
And he started walking across the yard (MIKE, followed by BAND, plays fast, walking jazz background) and he walked down the sidewalk and he started walking innocently down the street. He walked down the street when suddenly he found himself wandering into a new part of town that he’d never been to….
[Trey starts singing “Funkytown,” and Band joins in]
TREY: When he got there, he was walking along when suddenly, he rounded a corner and in front of him he saw, he saw Harpua, the mean and ugly dog from the beginning of the story, and they looked at each other and tension filled the air. There was going to be a nasty fight! Harpua saw Poster Nutbag and he began to growl, and let an angry drop of saliva fall onto the floor. Poster Nutbag coiled his body into a deadly arch! The fight was about to begin!
Look, the storm’s gone…

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.
