Fiddle About (John Entwistle) Gowmonk, Inc. (BMI)

Another commission from Pete, John wrote this in his head while trying to find his room in the circular Pontchatrain hotel in Detroit on July 13, 1968.

In an early song list, this was followed by a song called "Dream (Erotic)."

Uncle Ernie:

I'm your wicked Uncle Ernie
I'm glad you won't see or hear me
As I fiddle about
Fiddle about
Fiddle about !

Your mother left me here to mind you
Now I'm doing what I want to
Fiddling about
Fiddling about
Fiddle about!

Down with the bedclothes
Up with the nightshirt!
Fiddle about
Fiddle about
Fiddle about !

You won't shout as I fiddle about
Fiddle about
Fiddle about
Fiddle about !
Fiddle, fiddle, fiddle.
