and i stand here next to you
knowing that you'll always be here too
stading next to me and i hope it will always be like this
uncle jeff uncle jeff
and im sorry i wasn't there for you
these last few years
and we missed out on those inside jokes
that would make us fat when were fat and old
uncle jeff uncle jeff
remember the goodtimes uncle jeff
and i stand here next to you
knowing that you'll always be here too
standing next to me and i hope it will always be like this
uncle jeff uncle jeff
and we've spent a lot of time together these last few years
and we've lived down these inside jokes
that would make us laugh when were fat and old
uncle jeff uncle jeff
remember the goodtimes uncle jeff
one day we'll wake up late
and we'll realize were growing old
and we'll sit on the swing out on the pourch
and we'll laugh at those inside jokes
that would make us laugh when were fat and old

    General CommentExcellent band with an excellent song. And I'm not just saying that because I co-wrote it (well, all I did was help with the "fat and old" part, but it's more than you did).
    The song's about his friend Jeff, not about an uncle, but Uncle Jeff sounds cooler. I have an Uncle Jeff, he drives trucks, but I digress.
    The song sounded best when the band had five members, the lead (electric) guitar was exquisite. But it survives as a recording only in the three peice, acoustic format. But how do you argue with a band with a cellist?
    Congratulations to the six of you to read these lyrics.
    Peace,

    General CommentActually, the lead does exist, it was recorded on an acoustic, but the band wanted the track to be muted on final mixdown. They thought it just didn't sound as good as it did on an electric, and they didn't have an electric handy at the time, so they opted to have it left out. It still exists on the master zip disk though...maybe a remix someday???
