    "Stink Foot" is the final track on the apostrophe (') album and we played as close to the album version we possibly could. My dad always changed the arrangement for "Stink Foot" for each of his bands, never making any attempt to play the album version. The nuances of the delays on the vocals and the unique envelope filtered guitar solo were important for me to capture and present live.

    "Stink-Foot"

    In the dark
    Where all the fevers grow
    Under the water
    Where the shark bubbles blow
    In the mornin'
    By yer radio
    Do the walls close in t' suffocate ya
    You ain't got no friends . . .
    An' all the others: they hate ya
    Does the life you been livin' gotta go, hmmm?
    Well, lemme straighten you out
    About a place I know . . .
    (Get yer shoes 'n socks on people,
    It's right aroun' the corner!)
    Out through the night
    An' the whispering breezes
    To the place where they keep
    The Imaginary Diseases,
    Out through the night
    An' the whispering breezes
    To the place where they keep
    The Imaginary Diseases, mmm . . .

    This has to be the disease for you
    Now scientists call this disease
    Bromidrosis
    But us regular folks
    Who might wear tennis shoes
    Or an occasional python boot
    Know this exquisite little inconvenience
    By the name of:
    STINK FOOT
    Y'know, my python boot is too tight
    I couldn't get it off last night
    A week went by, an' now it's July
    I finally got it off
    An' my girl-friend cry
    "You got STINK FOOT!
    STINK FOOT, darlin'
    Your STINK FOOT puts a hurt on my nose!
    STINK FOOT! STINK FOOT! I ain't lyin',
    Can you rinse it off, d'you suppose?"
    Here Fido . . . Fido . . .
    C'mere little puppy . . . bring the slippers
    "Arf, arf, arf!" (crash-crumble-bump-bump-bump)
    Heh heh heh . . . sick . . .

    Well then Fido got up off the floor an' he rolled over
    An' he looked me straight in the eye
    An' you know what he said?
    Once upon a time
    Somebody say to me
    (This is a dog talkin' now)
    What is your Conceptual Continuity?
    Well, I told him right then
    (Fido said)
    It should be easy to see
    The crux of the biscuit
    Is the Apostrophe(')
    Well, you know
    The man who was talkin' to the dog
    Looked at the dog an' he said: (sort of staring in disbelief)
    "You can't say that!"
    He said:
    "IT DOESN'T, 'n YOU CAN'T!
    I WON'T, 'n IT DON'T!
    IT HASN'T, IT ISN'T, IT EVEN AIN'T
    'N IT SHOULDN'T . . .
    IT COULDN'T!"
    He told me NO NO NO!
    I told him YES YES YES!
    I said: "I do it all the time . . .
    Ain't this boogie a mess!"
