Bar Bands

lyrics

I got a job running sound in a bar at night turning the knobs so the cover songs sound alright making it loud so the people must shout to be heard, and I got a job where I turn on the colored lights inviting the people to come out and dance all night and forget their troubles if just for an hour or two, and I’ve got this theory ‘bout music and colored lights, start playing a song that the people all recognize and flash all the lights and they’ll dance like a puppet for you, and give them chords they recognize, and a chorus they can all sing along to: “lalalalalalalalala”, was it bands that killed these songs, or the kids through sing-a-longs, or was I living in denial when I swore I’d never be that guy, oh no, I got a job running sound in a bar at night turning the knobs so the cover songs sound alright, funny, the things people do for the money sometimes, oh, sometimes, oh sometimes I wanna die.
