Its real name is no better known than its lyrics (written years later), but right here is a catchy television classic of yesteryear. A professed fan of ditties, Trey picked up the tune as part of the band’s “secret language.” It has been teased in “Possum” (5/13/89 and 2/10/90), “Antelope” (3/8/90 and 3/28/93), "BBFCFM" (3/9/90), "I Am Hydrogen" (9/17/90) and “Weekapaug” (11/16/90). But the classic performances are the full-fledged debut on 3/1/89, and when the band whistled it to open a second set (8/26/89) and the audience whistled along.

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.
