i Got a song stuck in my head
walking down street #9
i sing it out loud with my friends
and were all having a good time
we all waited for weeks now we're hangin on the street in NYC
we gotta go to the show ever though were all underage.

Outside the firehall in PA
it rained on 300 kids all day
when the cops shut it down no one went away
we're gonna play no matter what they say.

3 or 4 people showed up in Alburquerque
the alternator died somewhere between Mankato and Rapid city
Strangers in some strange lands in LA
the enchiladas made us sick but that's ok.

Growing up we didn't wanna be like them
it was tough to know who were our friends
killing time playing basements way back when
in alot of ways nothing's changed from now and then
some say they've been left out
i wonder why they still hang around
i wonder where these sure things could be
then i realized that somehow i found them in me

we're gonna play no matter what they say.

    General Commentgreat song. it's about their life on the road. the last verse deals with the issue of selling out.
    "some say they've been left out
    i wonder why they still hang around "

    that means that all these kids are bitching and moaning that the souls forgot about their roots, well then why are they still listening to the music and going to the shows. great, great song by an awesome band.

    General Commenttwo comments? jeez....this is sad. Great great song...and yeah it just basically captures the spirit of bands.....any band, any type of music, you still have a good time playing the music, and us as listeners always have a good time listening, no matter what happens....be true to the music, man.
