If anybody else asks me
What i really do for a living
Im going to scream
I was in a mildly successful 90’s ska punk band
were’ve you been man, were’ve you been
And open mic’s don’t
pay for flights
id love to be queuing in an easy jet que.
I know i look like my washing machines on strike
But why is the guy at guitar and keyboard so rude

Ive heard of the word pension
Ive heard of the word retire
Investment is committing to a double sided flyer
Im a musician, in the loosest sense of the word
are we still ok

30 minutes to stage time
The first band are going home
20 minutes to stage time
The drummer’s girl friends on the phone
10 minutes to stage time
The audience has doubled
So that guys not all alone
5 minutes to stage to time the drummer’s girlfriends back on the phone

Ill tell you what id really like to see
