Digging for "Maharishi Dug the Scene"

I learned today that the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi had passed from the earthly plane, but the news didn't exactly choke me up. Though a surprising number of people I otherwise respect seem to have admired him, I think he was a con artist, albeit an extremely talented one who got to hang out with the Beatles way more than I ever did. So far my only real reaction has been to get the Teenage Fanclub song "Maharishi Dug the Scene"--a B side on the "What You Do to Me" single--wedged firmly into my mind grapes. I'm actually kinda pumped because I haven't thought about that song in many years, and it's super good. The only problem is that I lost my copy God knows when or where, and the only results I can get from the Googlenet are many, many pages hosting the lyrics. If anyone has heard about a secret black-ops Teenage Fanclub fiend who's hosting the song, let me know.

In the meantime, here's the A side:

Lyrical genius.
