John Phillips, Mackenzie Phillips

Mackenzie Phillips continued on her incest-revealing book tour Thursday with a stop at the Today show, where she recounted how she was sexually assaulted by her father, John Phillips. She also admitted to Meredith Vieira she was high on heroin during a 2008 appearance on the morning show with the cast of One Day at a Time.

But now we've unearthed the Papa John song from which Mackenzie borrows the title of her controversy-magnet tome, High on Arrival.

The little ditty, titled "She's Just 14" and featuring likes like "there isn't much she hasn't seen" and "she 'did it' in a limousine," is one of several songs the elder Phillips wrote about his daughter that suddenly takes on a stomach-turning new meaning.

Recorded in 1976 and produced by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, the song appears on the recently released Pussycat, an album of hitherto unreleased solo tracks by the Mamas and the Papas mastermind.

Considering what we know now, maybe it should have stayed that way.

Take a listen and judge for yourself.
