"Family Band" as written by Robert Baker, Gordon Downie, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois and Gordon Sinclair....
I can smell a rat when it's all rat
I can't find one in an elevator
My mind doesn't work so bad
But I am a poor exterminator
That's right
I can't destroy entirely
Or annihilate a little later
I can't see the entire city
But I'm not a bad exterminator
I'm just a shade shy of true wickedness
I'm a shade shy of truly loving it, yea
There are other things I'd rather be doing
Even nothing
Even nothing
Even nothing with you

One day I'll make some honest rock n' roll Full of handclaps and gang vocals
We'll be a shade shy of true wickedness
We'll be a shade shy of truly loving this, yea
There are other things we'll rather be doing, sure even nothing
Even nothing
Even nothing with you

We'll load out through the snow
Through small groups of people smoking
Hey! Get that kick drum loaded!
Into the backseat folded down!
We'll go virtually unnoticed
What's gripping the city ain't hitting the town
We'll be a shade shy of true wickedness
We'll be a shade shy of truly loving it, yea
There are other things we'll surely miss
We'll load out through the snow
Through small groups of people smoking
Hey! Get that kick drum loaded!
Into the backseat folded down!
We'll go perfectly unnoticed
Whats gripping the city ain't hitting the town

    General Commenti think its about musicians who write about partying and sex and drugs and just bad things and then they say theyre all about the music even when theyre jsut in the biz to get laid and have fun. at least thats what i got out of it.
