(laughing)
God..Who's that guy over there?
I don't know..
That's my drink! Watch out where you're going!
I know the trouble with the public places
I've seen too many of those unfamiliar faces
Drink and yell and push around
I just came here to see this band
Oh no don't talk to me
Cuz you're way too stoned
And you're way too drunk
Just give me a house
Give me a room
Give me a private party or two
Give me a beat I can dance to
And I'll go away
The bands they start at 9
So we got here right at 10 o' clock
But oh no their van broke down
They're in Portland now
But they're all lost
We came to see you
We can't recieve you
If you can't make your time slot
Oh no this guy is talking to me
It's almost 1 o' clock
Give me a house
Give me a room
Give me a private party or two
Give me a beat I can dance to
And I'll go away
Now is the time to liberate
All good things come to those who wait
I hear the buzz is good on them
But I can hardly stand another set
Much less an hour of this yuppy head
I'll go home, go to bed
But then I won't see the band
And I'll never know
I'll never know
I'll never know
I'll never
And I'll know the trouble with the public places
I've seen too many of these unfamiliar faces
Drink and yell and push around
I just came here to see this band
Oh no this guy is talking to me
It's almost 2 o' clock
Give me a house
Give me a room
Give me a private party or two
Give me a beat I can dance to
And I'll go away
I'll go away
