"Girl Named Sandoz" is a cover of The Animals' 1967 song, "When I Was Young", recorded live by The Smashing Pumpkins during the 1991 Peel Sessions. It was later included on the 1994 compilation album, Pisces Iscariot.

The song itself is a reference to Sandoz Laboratories, where LSD was invented.[1]

Lyrics

well i met a girl called sandoz
and she taught me many many things
good things, very good things
sweet things

i met her on a sunny morning
it was hot but the snow lay on the ground
strange things, very strange things
my mind has wings

sandoz, sandoz you taught me love
sandoz, sandoz you taught me love
will you tell me why
we could all learn something from your mind

she is very old, you many think she's young
one kiss from her and you know your time has come
good times for all time
sandoz
