    Take a piece of tinsel
    And put it on the tree
    Cut a slab of melon
    And pretend that you still love me

    Hey little boy, come walk with me
    And bring your new found mollusk along
    Does it speaketh of the trinity?
    Can it gaze at the sun, with its wandering eye?

    Mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist
    Of the worm like tips of tentacles expanding
    In my mind, I’m fine, accepting only fresh brine
    You can get another drop of this, yeah you wish!

    Not such a big fan, but went to high school with, and was in a band (or two) with Dave Dreiwitz.

    I caught their show at Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom last year. Big fun!

    Love Ween! Have all their CDs (had to buy one of the live one's off Ebay for $60!). Chocolate & Cheese is my favorite but the Mollusk & Quebec are tied for a close second. Stubbs is a great live album and the Chacago video is a must have!

    I used to hate Ween having heard a single from Pure Guava years ago. I finally gave them another shot after George Starostin gave the Mollusk a 14(out of 15) and I'm glad I did.
    Supposedly since Chocolate and Cheese they have been in a mature phase, but what impresses me the most is how they go from one musical style to another so effortlessly. Ween never promises U2-like sincerity, just great inventive songwriting, arranging, and a non-PC attitude.
