Must find "Watermelon in Easter Hay"

Amy Gahran was tweeting about Frank Zappa this evening, and I suddenly remembered the most beautiful Zappa song that I have ever heard.

No, not "Stink-Foot."

I've never owned a Zappa album, but have just listened to albums owned by others. For example, a college roommate bought all three acts of Joe's Garage, and for sheer beauty, nothing could top the second to last song in Act 3, "Watermelon in Easter Hay."

I have not heard this song in a quarter century, but I will seek it out. Hope has it. If not, I will take up the issue with Zappa personally.
