  • Christina from Wolcott, CtThe title of this song is not part of the lyrics. You should put it in the category"Songs With Titles That Are Not Part of the Lyrics". Why was this song called Birthday Boy? Who is the birthday boy?
  • Jennifer from Little Rock, ArI am pretty sure there is also a Pink Floyd/Ummagumma reference on Don't Laugh--I love the end...sounds like "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict"
