The final part of Irons in the Fire. Some of the best sounds on this entire album come from the very beginning riff Archie plays, which has a meter progression of 7-7-7-8 like in Fully Involved. The part afterward that I count off into revolves around the beat I play on the ride, which Archie wrote around. That part was originally a lot more disco-sounding, especially before effects were added to fill out the sound during mixing.

The song finally ends on the alternating 6-7 riff from Part I, which slows down to as slow as possible over the course of a few minutes. Archie always liked getting a rise out of the audience by not letting the song end until it's at something like 30 BPM.

The lick at the very end is taken directly from Booty City, a song that the famous Champagne Room used to cover at their shows, and that Ground Rules occasionally covered.
