So you wonder how
Get them up, put them up
Get your dukes up now
Got no time, no money, that's why
Get them up, put them up
Get your dukes up now
Soda fountain proud
Button up, shut them up
Getting fed up now
Got no time, no money, goddamn
Get them up, put them up
Get your dukes up now

    General CommentGreat song, kinda hard to play on guitar...if you dont cheat >> ...I was listening to some random talk from Isaac from an Ugly Casanova concert(wrong band, i know) and someone in the audience asked him to play Dukes Up, and Isaac replied with "I would'nt even play that in the band it was written for"...i found it funny, im probably alone on that though...i dont guess theres much of a chance for them to start dishing out some oldies then..

    General CommentOkay, I use to think it said GODAMN, then someone mentioned it said NARC OUT, so I listened and I thought that what it said, now someone says it's KNOCK OUT so I'm pretty sure that's right now.

    General Commenti love the old modest mouse. i am wondering if they will still play these songs at their shows even without Jeremiah Green? i am bummed about him leaving the band. just when i get to see them (july 18), he has just left.

    General CommentTheres an error, on the second "that's why" it's supposed to be "god damn". just to let you kids know.

    General CommentThe God Damn kinda sounds like Narc Out to me too...I'm probably wrong, but it does.
