Though the title sounds tropical, it is in fact the composer's longtime house rabbit, Peaches, who loves papaya treats as a snack. The bass pans and bass guitar parts are similar, so the arrangement can be performed with either one omitted. Players may wish to use a bass guitar, along with the bass pan part, to help fill out the low-end frequencies and balance with the drumset.
