I got off the road and I felt so wired
Mama said, “I’m worried ‘cause you look too tired”
“Yes, I know, Mama, it’s a jungle out there
But I’m livin’ a dream and I just don’t care”
Got music to play
Got a fire to burn
Every dog has his day
And now it’s my turn
Got to the club, setting up our sound
The owner rolled his eyes, said, “Can you keep it down?
It’s a mellow crowd – Don’t know how much they can stand”
We said, “For cryin’ out loud, we’re a rock and roll band”
Then the man from the label walked in
Said, “We’ll sweeten up the tracks with some violins”
We said, “No, no, Mister, let’s cut to the chase
What you hear is what you get – guitar, drums and bass”
