Rhode Island singer/songwriter and long time friend of Tuli's wrote and recorded this unique name song for him several years back in the '90s which I first heard on Bob Fass' Radio Unnameable. Tim spoke at Tuli's memorial at St. Marks Church , July 17, 2010, and strummed a few of Tuli's songs. Thanks to photojournalist Clayton Patterson for the use of the fourth photo in the montage.

Tuli Kupferberg
Put me up when I'm in New Yorik
Key member of my favorite band The Fugs
Olson, Blake and gritty

Richie Havens covered Morning, Morning,
Lots of beat writers covered his style.
Truly non-conformist
Not a loyal plastic robot in a world that doesn't care.
Tuli Kupferberg

His grandma told him when he was quite young
Jewish boys don't whistle or chew gum
His father told him clothespins are obscene
Such repression and oppression helped
Shape the beatnik scene

Goddam beatnik, get the hell out of my way
Neat trick, Sputnik,feet stink, beatnik
What kind of a commie name is that?
