"A Few Minutes Of Silence" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Play me what I want to hear
Don`t make me have to come down there
Forgot how to think and I don`t want to dance
I want to hear few minutes, few minutes, few minutes, of silence
Few minutes, few minutes, few minutes, of silence

It`s me, I`m back for my request
Cut me some slack and give it a rest
Sex and money and violence
I want to hear few minutes, few minutes, few minutes, of silence
Few minutes, few minutes, few minutes of silence

Silence
Silence

You know the reason I`m listening for
One more note and I`m out that door
Is it too much to ask for my request

Silence
Few minutes few minutes few minutes of silence
Few just a few few minutes come on come on just give me some silence
Few just a few few minutes all I ever want to hear is silence
Few just a few few minutes few minutes of

    My Interpretationwhere are the mats fans? no comments yet? So, here is my take on it. Paul westerberg was a member of the Replacements, a Minnesota roots garage band. they practiced as teenages and twenty somethings at homes and garages of family and friends. The song is about the occupants wanting some silence. you gotta love the line, "Play me want I want to hear, don;t make me come down there". A moment of silence!!! you can picture the band asking 'what do you want to hear?" because they are proud of their songs. But the occupany has had enough and wants them to "play some silence".
