1976 Jan-Mar: Essentially performed as on "Sheik Yerbouti", allowing for obvious differences in instrumentation.
1976-77: Essentially performed as on "Lather".
1977-78: Essentially performed as on "Sheik Yerbouti".
1979: God bless Denny Walley! Essentially performed as on YCDTOSA Volume I, with Walley usually flubbing the lyrics as well. Notable Version- 3/19/79 ["I am only 36, thinly and sick, tried all of my life, to grow me a dick."]
1981: Essentially performed as on "Sheik Yerbouti", accounting for obvious differences in instrumentation. Scott Thunes does an excellent job of handling the vocals, and in the tradition of all great "Tryin' to Grow" singers, even manages to screw up the lyrics a time or two. Also, instead of the closing "one for time for the world" guitar meltdown, we get a smooth segue into "Strictly Genteel".
