There is a sample taken from Olivia Newton-John's "Long Live Love" (1974) from 01:00-01:05:

"On a wet day, dry day, great to be alive day, brother takes the stand" 

This is repeated again towards the end (07:35-07:40).


I am out of tune Violin the state I'm in I've lived through many June's

I am out of tune the center-hole is overgrown I'm listening face down

birds sounds surround like a sudden spell of bells or orchestrated swells

I am out of tune play the flute for love or loot that's really up to you

how it clings like pings of strings on mandolins that pluck to your good luck

no trombone or glockenspiel could ever feel my loneliness tonight

bom bom bom the drum cymbals symbolize your mind by rights you out to cry

classical guitar my new lover - yes, you are! panpipe save a life

no angelic flute can F-hole a harping soul each song ends with a gong

fat bassoon clears the room but nothing, now can take away my gloom

triangle fiddle Stradivarius I'd like to cause a fuss.
