"Every once in a while a band comes along
That changes the course of human history
And that band is They Might Be Giants"
Tom Poston, the New York Times

"Like so many things I can't understand
They left my teeth chattering for more"
Peggy Cass, Aquarian Weekly

"Maestro! I say right on!"
Orson Bean, Sky and Telescope

"If you hear only one song this year
There's something terribly wrong with you"
Kitty Carlyle, Easy Riders

Ladies and gentlemen, do not be alarmed
Please remain perfectly still
What you are about to see is real
The performers are not grinning scarecrows
Sent here to torture and manipulate you

Ladies and gentlemen
It is my pleasure to introduce the twin quasars of rock
Please give a warm, friendly hand to
They Might Be Giants!

Songwriters
LINNELL, JOHN S./FLANSBURGH, JOHN C.
