Mother-may I? was a song that was recorded during the band's tour of Hamburg in 1962. The song is based off the game of the same name. The tape was found in an old trunk, although, they did not find Leppo there. The song was released on the Let It Rot LP.

Nasty then proceeded to play a quick guitar solo with chords from Goose-Step Mama thrown in.

  • Dirk "Mother may I play the bass?"
  • Leppo "Yes, Dirk. Yes, you may."
