Fill In The Cleveland

The song eventually released as "Let's Move To Cleveland" has gone by many names. In December 1975 and January 1976, it was performed a handful of times (without lyrics) under the title "Canard Du Jour" (French for "Duck Of The Day"). When this version was released on FZ:OZ, the title was changed to "Canard Toujours" (French for "Duck Always"), presumably to distinguish it from the unrelated jam entitled "Canard Du Jour" on Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar.

In 1980 and 1982, the song was known as "Young And Monde". In 1982, it had the lyrics "So young and monde/So very monde" (as heard on As An Am). Once, FZ announced the title as "Nobody Really Wants To Know What They Put In The Hot Dog" (6/29/82 Linz).

At the beginning of the 1984 tour, the song was known as "Kreeg-ah Bundolo" ("Beware! Kill!" in the language of the Mangani, the great apes in the Tarzan books by Edgar Rice Burroughs). Later in the tour, however, the lyrics often changed according to the secret word for the night.

At the concert in Cleveland, Ohio, on November 14, 1984, the lyrics were changed to "Let's move to Cleveland". These lyrics were reused on several occasions, including the concert in Los Angeles on December 23, 1984, one of the sources for the Does Humor Belong In Music? CD.

Having appeared on an album under the title "Let's Move To Cleveland", the song retained those lyrics throughout the 1988 tour.
