It wasn't very large
There was just enough room to cram the bicí
In the corner over by the Dodge
It was a fifty-four
With a mashed up door
And a cheesy little amp
With a sign on the front said
"Fender Champ"
And a second-hand kytara
It was a Stratocaster with a whammy bar
(That's you, Bill!)

We could jam in Joe's Garage
His mama was screamin'
"There she goes!!!"
His dad was mad
We was playin' the same old song
In the afternoon 'n' sometimes we would
Play it all night long
It was all we knew, 'n' easy too
So we wouldn't get it wrong
Even if you played it on a saxofón
Isn't that amazing?
We thought we was pretty good
We talked about keepin' the band together
'N' we figured that we should
'Cause about this time we was gettin' the eye
From the girls in the neighborhood
They'd all come over 'n' dance around like...

The diamond is the hardest substance known to man,
But you can't...
So we picked out a stupid name
Had some cards printed up for a coupla bucks
'N' we was on our way to fame
Isn't that amazing?
Got matching suits
'N' Beatle Boots
'N' a sign on the back of the car
'N' we was ready to work in a GO-GO Bar
People seemed to like our songs
They got up 'n' danced 'n' made a lotta noise
An' it wasn't 'fore very long
A guy from a company we can't name
Said we oughta take his pen
'N' sign on the line for a real good time
But he didn't tell us when
These "good times" would be somethin'
That was really happenin'
So the band broke up
An' it looks like
We will never play again...

Guess you only get one chance in life
To play a song that goes like...
