Song History
This song dates back to the very beginnings and was the first single released by the band. It is perhaps the quintessential live DMB song featuring all forms of intros, outros, interpolations, segueing, abridging, and extended jamming.

Intros:
Some Do/Some Don't - as sung by Dave.

Outros:
Pretty Pretty Girl - one of the more famous outros, it is used for Dave to introduce band members or sing interpolations during each measure.

The song features an optional extended jam, noted as "truncated" when not present.

A prelude was also occasionally used in early 1993.

In 1996, Water into Wine (aka "Water/Wine Jam") originated a as segued outro.

Dave has sung the following interpolations in this song which may also be listed as intros/outros:

"Take me to the river the river, drop me in the water the water" - Take Me To The River - Al Green / Taking Heads

"Asked a girl what she wanted to be, She said baby, can't you see I wanna be famous, a star of the screen, But you can do something in between" - Drive My Car - The Beatles

"You made me so very happy I'm so glad you came into my life" - You've Made Me So Very Happy - Brenda Holloway / Blood, Sweat & Tears

"If the rain comes they run and hide their heads. They might as well be dead. If the rain comes, if the rain comes" - Rain - The Beatles
