"Thanks for coming, what's the secret word for tonight? "
The idea of The Secret Word For Tonight intended that at the start of a concert that word was mentioned – either by Frank Zappa or perhaps by the audience – and could appear at every moment throughout the show, being a special challenge for the group and fun for the audiences.
Many of the band had worked with Frank for quite a while, which resulted in a lot more relaxed, free-form attitude on stage. This led to lots of "secret word" shenanigans, with band members routinely changing the lyrics to (somewhat tired) tunes to make the other band members have fun.
