Rock And Roll Band
Well, we were just another band out of Boston
On the road to try to make ends meet.
Playing all the bars, sleeping in our cars,
And we practiced right on out in the street.
No, we didn't have much money,
We barely made enough to survive,
But when we got up on stage and got ready to play
People came alive.
Rock and Roll band, everybody's waiting,
Getting crazy, anticipating
Love and music.
Play, play, play.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Dancing in the streets of Hyannis,
We were getting pretty good at the game.
People stood in line and didn't seem to mind,
You know, everybody knew our name.
Living on rock 'n' roll music,
Never worried 'bout the things we were missing.
When we got up on stage and got ready to play
Playing for a week in Rhode Island,
A man came to the stage one night.
He smoked a big cigar, drove a Cadillac car,
And said "Boys, I think this band's outta sight.
Sign a record company contract,
You know, I've got great expectations!
When I hear you on the car radio
You're gonna be a sensation!"
