lyrics

Forget about your mother and get on the boat now
We’ve got a brother to resurrect now
It’s been too long and I’m feelin’ weak
So shut your mouth and take a seat
I mixed the juice and found the solution
The missing piece of our revolution
I sold the crystal and I sold the gold
To buy a blanket in case he’s cold
And just forget about the plans you’ve made
I brought the shovels and spades
Let’s go to the grave
Well, he’s a straight-shootin’ mother, yeah
Wake up
And he knows which songs to cover, yeah
Wake up
Everybody’s gonna be there
Wake up
He’s an answer to our prayer, yeah
Wake up, wake up
Wake up, John! It’s gonna be a riot
A broken rocket with a wired pilot
Chocolate donuts and some Cadillacs
We’ll yell at demons and they’ll yell right back
We’ll drink the honey that the queen bee sent and
We’ll shoot the horse to piss of the sergeant
We’ll bring the lights and we’ll bring the sound
We’ll shake the island till it’s goin’ down
And don’t you worry about getting bored
I brought your Samurai sword
And a song to record
Well, you’re a straight-shootin’ mother, yeah
Wake up
And you know which songs to cover, yeah
Wake up
Everybody’s gonna be there
Wake up
The whole island’s goin’ under
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Well, you may be gone
But rock ‘n’ roll lives on
Well, you’re a straight-shootin’ mother, yeah
Wake up
And you know which songs to cover, yeah
Wake up
Everybody’s gonna be there
Wake up
The whole island’s going under
Well, he’s a straight-shootin’ mother, yeah
Wake up
And he knows which songs to cover, yeah
Wake up
Everybody’s gonna be there
Wake up
The whole island’s goin' under

about

Sidewalk Driver Boston

The music of Sidewalk Driver is high energy, highly-infectious, hook-driven, Rock with a capital 'R.' The sound is modern but the heart of the band seems to be more in line with 1970s rock culture - the Bowies & the Belushis of the world. The songs always come with some odd bent but not one that repels; rather, they welcome you to join in the celebration like a carnival barker hyping a freak show. ... more
