Song History
In the DMB setting, this mini-song has nearly always been played as an introduction to Rapunzel, including on Before These Crowded Streets. It originated as an outro to acoustic performances of Jimi Thing, however, entitled What Will Become of Me.

The title was long said to mean "Welcome to our home" in Gambian; however, there is no such language. The current, more believable explanation is that it means "There's a snake in my pants" in an Indian language, and it has been attributed to one of the band's former cooks.
