"Seven and Seven Is" as written by and Arthur Lee....
When I was a boy I thought about the times I'd be a man
I'd sit inside a bottle and pretend that I was in a can
In my lonely room I'd sit my mind in an ice cream cone
You can throw me if you want to 'cause I'm a bone and I go
Oop-ip-ip oop-ip-ip yeah
If I don't start cryin' it's because that I have got no eyes
My father's in the fireplace and my dog lies hypnotized
Through a crack of light I was unable to find my way
Trapped inside a night but I'm a day and I go
Oop-ip-ip oop-ip-ip, yeah
One
Two
Three
Four

    General Commentis it not boom bip bip, boom bip bip (not oop ip ip) ?

    Either way, great song, the part in question (at least for me) reminds me of The Stooges, or MC5

    General CommentHeard this song in the movie "Point Break" (the original one, not the crappy re-make) Also, Rush does an outstanding cover of this song on their 2004 covers album "Feedback".

    General Comment"My Bible's in the fireplace and my dog lies hypnotized" Released in July '66 the music publisher wouldn't publish a lyric like that. In August '66 John Lennon got into hot water in the U.S. for his remark on the comparative popularity of Jesus and the Beatles.
