"Thank You (Sly and the Family Stone cover)" as written by David Allan Stewart and Feargal Sean Sharkey....
Lookin' at the devil, grinnin' at his gun
Fingers start shakin', I begin to run
Bullets start chasin', I begin to stop
We begin to wrestle, I was on the top

I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin

Stiff all in the collar, fluffy in the face
Chit chat chatter tryin', stuffy in the place
Thank you for the party, but I could never stay
Many thangs is on my mind, words in the way

I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin

Dance to the music, all nite long
Everyday people, sing a simple song
Mama's so happy, Mama start to cry
Papa still singin', you can make it if you try

I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
(Different strokes for different folks, yeah)
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin

Flamin' eyes of people fear burnin' into you
Many men are missin' much hatin' what they do
Youth and truth are makin' love, dig it for a starter, now
Dyin' young is hard to take, sellin' out is harder

Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
Thank you falettinme be mice elf agin
I want to thank you falettinme be mice elf agin

    General CommentOriginally from the "Thank You" LP, Sly and the Family Stone. 1970 or 1971, I can't remember.

    Debuted as a DMB song once in 2004, then didn't come back until 2008. Was used as the encore closer to the first show of the 2008 Summer tour. Then was used extensively (most hardcore fans would say excessively) for the first half of the Summer tour as an encore closer. It now seems to be played a little less sparingly, although it did close out the final nights of all 3 of the "big venues" of the 2008 summer tour: SPAC 6/21, Alpine Valley 8/10, and Gorge Ampitheatre 8/31.

    Personally, I like this cover more than most people seem to. 'twas a great song to begin with, and then Dave came in and gave it a fresh coat of paint and a little bit of jazz. Fonzie is a fuckin animal on this.

    General CommentOh, and of course the name of the song is a modification of the phrase "Thank you for letting me be myself again".

    But you already knew that. ;)
