"Orgy On My Own" seems to be the most mysterious song in Al's canon, because no one seems to have heard it, being that its only appearance was a single live show.

But does anyone know ANYTHING about this mystery tune???

Bermuda said before that he only performed it with Al once in the early 80's, and I think he also said he didnt remember the song.

Maybe Bermuda didn't WANT to remember the song. X*


But I really would like to hear it, or even just read the lyrics. Although the lyrics by themselves might not be as funny, and maybe even a little disturbing. :blink: It's too bad Al doesn't think very highly of his very early work. I personally like it (the stuff I've heard at least), like Fatter and Belvedere Cruisin'. Maybe someday, SOMEDAY, we'll hear OOMO. Like maybe Al will record a new version of it and put it as a super-secret easter egg on a future album. One can dream, right?

I think this song was probably a one-verse joke (like "If I Could Make Love to a Bottle.").

No, and believe me, I've tried to track it down. I've emailed a couple of folks who knew Al Back Then, and I've had a friend of one of Al's college buddies try to find out. I've asked Jon. Heck, I even Asked Al, but to no avail.

I guess it's just going to have to remain one of those great mysteries of life.

Heh... someone needs to ask Al next time they see him in person.

I can barely remember my own name when I'm talking to him. There's no way I could ask him that. And you wouldn't want me to. I'd never be able to remember it for all the AIH.

I thought I would pretend to be Al one day, and wrote my own version of this song ... since I'm not Al, it's not all that great, but I thought I would share (since no one seems to have the actual lyrics ... and cause I thought it would be fun) ...

Orgy On My Own (By Akrovak, pretending to be Al, and failing miserably)

All my problems can be traced back
To my happy go lucky hippy folks
Tie dye shirts, Grateful Dead shows
And silly George Carlin jokes

Long hair, lime green VW van
Making a living on Match Game
And when I finally came along
They couldn't give me a decent name

Sue would have been nice
I could have even lived with Porgy
But how in the name of all that's holy
Did I end up being called Orgy?

Even as a toddler, I'd get funny looks
I had no friends in kindergarten
No one wanted to be associated with
Someone with a name best forgotten

I am Orgy, Orgy on my own
Orgy on my own
I am Orgy, Orgy on my own

I ran for High School Vice President
But my slogan was severly lacking
And I received no votes at all
"A Vote For Orgy Isn't Slacking"

I still haven't found a good career
No one wants an Orgy on their staff
If I wasn't so far in debt and stuff
It would be enough to make me laugh

I am Orgy, Orgy on my own
Orgy on my own
I am Orgy, Orgy on my own

I cannot form a relationship
I am Orgy, Orgy on my own
Potential mates totally flip
I am Orgy, Orgy on my own

I am Orgy, Orgy on my own
Orgy on my own
I am Orgy, Orgy on my own
PMFL!
