Welcome this is our farmhouse.
We have cluster flies alas,
And this time of year is bad.

We are so very sorry,
There is little we can do, but swat them.

She didn't beg-
Oh not enough.

She didn't stay
When things got tough.

I told a lie
And she got mad

She wasn't there
When things got bad.

Chorus:
I never ever saw the northern lights. (This is our farmhouse)
I never really heard of cluster flies. (Cluster flies alas)
Never ever saw the stars so bright. (This is our farmhouse)
In the farmhouse things will be alright. (Cluster flies alas)

Woke this morning to the stinging lash
Every man rise from the ash
Each betrayal begins with trust
Every man returns to dust.

...Chorus...

...Instrumental...

Chorus until fadeout

    General CommentFirst of all what the hell does this guy mean that you have to be a hippie to listen to phish. Hippies were all about peace and love and all that shit. They wear bellbottoms and protest against society. Is it just me, or has it been 35 years since hippies have been around. Second, if you had any musical appreciation at all (newfoundfinch) then you would definately not be talking shit about Phish. They are one of the most tallented bands around today, and you are just pissed off because bull shit bands like Blink 182 and Aerosmith are all sellouts that have no tallent what so ever. It's morons like you that have driven music straight to the bottom. Its all about the money and popularity now. Phish were true musicians that started for the music and for the fans. And if you cant appreciate that, then you have serious problems.
