Fans of "Greazy Troll” Jon Fishman have been amazed by his skill with the trombone, bagpipes, washboard, and vacuum cleaner for years. However, fewer fans are familiar with Fish’s proficiency on the pillow. This unique talent was displayed on 6/25/97 during an equally unique second set in Lille, France. The complex machinations of pillow performances are surely to blame for Fishman’s trouble in relating the complete lyrics of the Simon & Garfunkel folk-rock classic “Cecilia.” After several attempts, though, Henrietta managed to get almost one whole verse right before his band broke into a triumphant rendition of “Hold Your Head Up.

Lyrics:

Cecilia, you're breaking my heart
You're shaking my confidence daily
Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please to come home

Cecilia, you're breaking my heart
You're shaking my confidence daily
Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please to come home
Come on home

Making love in the afternoon with Cecilia
Up in my bedroom (making love)
I got up to wash my face
When I come back to bed
Someone's taken my place

Cecilia, you're breaking my heart
You're shaking my confidence daily
Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees
I'm begging you please to come home
Come on home

Jubilation, she loves me again,
I fall on the floor and I'm laughing,
Jubilation, she loves me again,
I fall on the floor and I'm laughing
