Wolfman's Brother

Lyrics: Tom Marshall
Music: Anastasio et al

A Phish song performed by Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell by Phil & Friends, and since then in other configurations without Phish members.

Well it was many years ago now
But I really can't be sure
That's when it all began then
I heard that knock upon my door

And the wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
Came down on me

The telephone was ringing
That's when I handed it to Liz
She said, "This isn't who it would be
If it wasn't who it is"

It's the wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
Coming down on me

So I might be on a side street
Or a stairway to the stars
I hear the high pitched cavitation
Of propellers from afar

It's the wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
Coming down on me

So with meaningless excitement
And smooth atonal sound
It's like a cross between a hurricane
And a ship that's run aground

It's the wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
The wolfman's brother
Coming down on
Coming down on me

It's the wolfman's brother
It's the wolfman's brother
[etc]
