With an altered lyric and an alternate implication, Phish covered the third tune on The BeatlesWhite Album on Halloween 1994. Rather than remind us of “The Fool on the Hill,” Trey chose to inform us: “I told you ‘bout Guyute the pig – I tell you man he’s dancin’ a jig!” Additionally, the Walrus apparently wasn’t a McCartney – he was a Languedoc, as Trey so indicated by pointing back to the soundboard at the appropriate time.
