The third track from the album ’ A Trick Of The Tail ’ written by Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford, and based on a Pennsylvanian legend. It tells the tale of a hunter trying to capture a creature known as ’ Squonk ’ The hunter manges to trick him into his sack but at the end the Squonk dissolves into a pool of tears. This track was a staple part of the Genesis live experience for many years and was very popular amongst their fans. The album was their first since the departure of Peter Gabriel and gave Phil Collins his chance to take centre stage which he has successfully done till now.

Like father like son
Not flesh nor fish nor bone
A red rag hangs from an open mouth
Alive at both ends but a little dead in the middle
