Skippy the Wondermouse

Originally performed by Phish

(Anastasio/Anastasio/Pollak)

Skippy the Wondermouse
Now he's picking diamonds in the daytime
Skippy the Wondermouse
Now he's picking diamonds in the daytime

Skippy is nasty, and Skippy is mean
Lost all his money in the slot machine
Still he gets nasty, and still he is mean
Prettiest mouse that I ever seen

[For the debut, The Dude sang four other verses here, largely indecipherable from recordings. For the Oct 85 version, Trey only sang the lines above then the lines below. We had listed a 3/4/85 Skippy, but that includes none of these lyrics and was actually McGrupp. We currently also list a 3/16/85 version, of which there are no recordings; we know the band called it Skippy at the time, but they also called the 3/4/85 version Skippy - but 3/16 probably also had the McGrupp lyrics, such that there were only two performances of Skippy as such.]

Skippy is nasty, and Skippy is mean
Lost all his money in the slot machine
Skippy is nasty, and Skippy is mean
Lost all his money in the slot machine

Skippy the Wondermouse
Now he's picking diamonds in the daytime
Skippy the Wondermouse
Now he's picking diamonds in the daytime
