It's A Song About Turtles



I have no idea why this song is making me laugh so much right now. Could it be the many Dead shows in which we would sing the wrong lyrics to f#ck with the tapers, and than of course the grand build up to INSPIRATION. Oh, did we use to love to f#ck with people. Can't blame it on the drugs or booze either. We were just Punk Rock douchebags. That car blasting Black Flag in the parking lot? That would be us, sunshine.
Yeah, I know, I went to 200 plus Dead shows and followed em all around (and probably another 100 Dead related since the Fat Man checked off this mortal coil). But I wasn't a Deadhead. I wore footwear! Yeah, and denial is a river in Egypt.

Terrapin
I Can't Figure Out
Terrapin
Is It The End or Beginning

Just saw Ratdog play the entire Terrapin Suite at Mountain Jam last weekend.

I'll post the show soon.

I sometimes laugh through this one too. It's that conviction with which Jerry always delivered the lyrics - which are, by all accounts, totally nonsensical. Gotta love it.

What does Terrapin mean? Back home there was a head shop called Terrapin Station, but I never knew what it meant.
