What is it about Southern California that brings out l’amour in Jon Fishman? SoCal natives have been graced with some of the oddest and most sex-drenched performances that Henrietta, Fish’s vaguely disturbing alter-Id, has ever crafted. Exhibit A: he asked the musical question, “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road?” in Santa Monica on 12/10/94. Exhibit B: he exposed his naughty bits to the front rows during his lascivious debut of “Sexual Healing” in Ventura on 7/20/98, leading some to wonder whether he was trying to get laid or arrested. Exhibit C: At Hollywood’s picturesque Greek Theatre on 9/29/95, the muumuu’d one took center stage with a sheet of lyrics to deliver “Cryin,” Aerosmith’s paean to fractured romance. Between verses, he gazed wistfully into the tall pines beyond and promptly lost his place. Undaunted, Henrietta accompanied his subsequent mumblings with interpretive movements of his pelvis that suggested either passionate longing, or explosive gas.



Unfortunately (or, perhaps, thankfully), Phish has yet to reprise “Cryin.”

There was a time
When I was so broken hearted
Love wasn't much of a friend of mine
The tables have turned, yeah
Cause me and them ways have parted
That kind of love was the killin' kind
Now listen
All I want is someone I can't resist
I know all I need to know by the way that I got kissed

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you
Do what you do – down on me

Now there's not even breathin' room
Between pleasure and pain
Yeah you cry when we're makin' love
Must be one and the same

It's down on me
Yeah I got to tell you one thing
It's been on my mind
Girl I gotta say
We're partners in crime
You got that certain something
What you give to me
Takes my breath away
Now the word out on the street
Is the devil's in your kiss
If our love goes up in flames
It's a fire I can't resist

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you
Do what you do to me

Cause what you got inside
Ain't where your love should stay
Yeah, our love, sweet love, ain't love
If you give your heart away

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Now I'm dyin' just to let you
Do what you do what you do down to me, baby, baby, baby

I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm dyin' cause I let you
Do what you do down to , down to, down to, down to
I was cryin' when I met you
Now I'm dyin' to forget you
Your love is sweet
I was cryin' when I met you
