Okay, go ahead.

My name is Sidney Westerfeld.

I'm the owner of this antique tavern...

...Monmouth Valley, New York State.

I was here when

this crowd really came.

We expected fifty thousand a day,

and there must have been a million!

l, myself, was hungry for two days,

because I couldn't get any food in.

I couldn't get out to buy any food.

I was eating cornflakes for two days!

And the kids were wonderful.

I have no kicks.

It was "sir" this and "sir" that, and...

..."thank you" this and

"thank you" that.

Nobody can complain about the kids.

This thing was too big.

It was too big for the world!

Nobody has ever seen a thing like this!

And when they see this picture in

the news, over the moving pictures...

...they'll really see something!

"It's been a long time coming..."

"...because it's been

a long time gone..."

"...and it appears to be a long..."

"...appears to be a long..."

"...appears to be a long..."

"...time. It's a long,

long, long, long time..."

"...before the dawn."

"Turn, turn any corner."

"Hear, hear, you must hear..."

"...what the people say."

"You know that something..."

"...is going on around here."

"But surely, surely, surely..."

"...one day I'm going to have my day."

"Oh, it appears to be

a long, yes it does..."

"...appears to be a long..."

"...appears to be a long..."

"...ah-ha, such a long, long time..."

"...before the dawn."

"Speak out, you've got to speak out..."

"...against the madness."

"You've got to speak your

mind, yes, today..."

"...but don't, no, don't, don't

try to get yourself elected."

"If you do, you'll have

to cut your hair..."

"...and it appears to be

a long, yes, it does..."

"...appears to be a long..."

"...appears to be a long..."

"...time, such a long,

long, long time..."

"...before the dawn."

"It's been a long time coming..."

"...it's going to be

a long time gone..."

"...but you know..."

"...the darkest hour..."

"...the darkest phase, is always

just before the dawn..."

"...and it appears to be a long..."

"...appears to be a long..."

"...appears to be a long time..."

"...such a long, long,

long, long time..."

"...before the dawn."

Hey, Mike, what's the worst part

of running one of these things?

The worst part?

What's the worst part of running one?

I don't know.

You dig it all?

I guess the biggest hassle is

dealing with politics. You know.

Is there a lot of politics involved?

You mean with the cities?

And you got that solved?

Well, it looks that way.

How long did it take you to put

it together. Two, three months?

Uh, been working on it

for about nine months.

Nine months! Full time?

Are you in charge of the whole thing?

Yes.

But you got backers?

Partners and backers.

Where are you going to go from here?

I mean, are you going

to do another one?

If it works.

Aw, you're really good tonight!

You know...

...this is the most outrageous spectacle

I've ever witnessed. Ever!

There's only one thing I wish.

I sure have to pee!

And there just is nowhere to go!

I believe we're "GOING UP THE

COUNTRY" a little bit right now.

"I'm going up the country,

baby, don't you want to go?"

"I'm going up the country,

baby, don't you want to go?"

"I'm going to someplace,

where I've never been before."

"I'm going, I'm going, where

the water tastes like wine."

"I'm going where the

water tastes like wine."

"We can jump in the water,

stay drunk all the time."

"I'm going to leave this city.

Got to get away."

"I'm going to leave this city.

Got to get away."

"All this fussing and fighting,

man, you know I sure can't stay."
