don't even be like that try not to take it in cause all that you'll
hold will break down, whatcha doing, doing to me well i've heard it all
before, every day just a little bit better, every day just a little bit more,
well i don't mind the things that i've heard today and i don't mind the
things i've seen, gonna sit right here on my brand new porch cause this house
is good enough for me, {51 51 gardner} it's a nice house i don't need much
it's got a welfare little porch, i can sit there all day and still have fun
you don't see what's great about it you don't see what holds it up but in the
winter time it snows a lot in boston and when it does well i'm in luck, well i'm walking softly knocking softly didn't mean to bother if you need me i'm
right down the hall, well you said it was alright, but it's nothing to write
home about well if it's no fun why do it at all across your house in a big
red house they're causing trouble making too much noise but the timing wasn't
right no the timing wasn't right hit the stop, hit the {chorus} crawling all
around those little fuckers try to hide from us so i bomb'em, smash 'em,
stomp their eggs, and i gather them all right up well i put 'em in a can set
it to flames (yeah that's the stuff) but the landlord's to blame yeah joe's
to blame and i'm sure he's had enough, walking softly knocking softly didn't
mean to bother if you need me i'm right down the hall well you said it was
all right but it's nothing to write home about well if it's no fun why do it
at all across your house in a big red house they're causing trouble making
too much noise but the timing wasn't right no the timing wasn't right, hit
the stop, hit the, don't even be like that try not to take it in — cause
all that you'll hold will break down

    General Comment51 Gardner Street in Boston. You can go and see the place if you'd like, thought the members of Big D no longer live there.

    General CommentNo one posts anything about Big D. whyyyy not?! They're fucking awesome. Their shows are the greatest shows i've been to. I dunno, they're so...alive or something. It's kinda neat how they're just average guys too...they play for fun, and their shows are like 6 bucks. i like my 6 dollar shows. ::maniacal laughter. mwahhaaa::

    Well, even though i didnt follow the whole "What does this song mean to you?" shit, im just saying that Big D is pretty fucking rad.

    later.
