The band performed the song only three times in its entirety, at the June 29 and July 18, 1994 release parties for Portrait of an American Family and twenty years later on January 25, 2014:

    Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly
    He got joo-joo eyeball he one holy roller
    He got hair down to his knees
    Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
    
    He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
    He want monkey finger he shoot Coca-Cola
    He say, "I know you, you know me"
    One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
    Come together right now over me
    
    He bag production he got walrus gumboot
    He was Ono sideboard he got spinal cracker
    He got feet down below his knee
    Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
    Come together right now over me
    
    He roller-coaster he got early warning
    He want muddy water he one mojo filter
    He say, "One and one and one is three"
    Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
    Come together right now over me
    
    Over me, over me, come together
    Come together, oh
    Come together, oh
    Come together, oh
