Before Alligator Bobby says "We only have time for one more unfortunately and we're gonna do a song we laughingly refer to as 'Alligator'. Ha, Ha!" David Sorochty: "Alligator ends with one of the most dramatic endings ever for this song. It finishes with Jerry's guitar cranking and screeching eeeeoowww!! it has a reverb type echo to it that adds to the cranking effect and its pretty stunning. You have to hear it to appreciate it."
