SUMMER SHENANIGANS

the word is out on the streets
fresh paint drips on concrete
kids gone crazy in the heat
you bet they're up to mischief

summer shenanigans
smells like someone's cooking up some bad ass plans
summer shenanigans
idle dirty hands and ants in the pants
happy summer mondays beat the winter weekends
gotta go wild before the summer ends

summer! (it's about time it's about time it's about)
summer shenanigans!

summer shenanigans
woke up buried neck deep in the sand
summer shenanigans
beware the guy with the jazz hands

summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer! (it's about time it's about time it's about)
summer shenanigans!

hey have you heard the news, boy
you can't get the blues, oh no
if you stay amused or even confused
stick with us and you get to choose

summer shenanigans!
summer! (it's about time it's about time it's about)
summer shenanigans!
shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!

just a little fun fun fun
everybody's gotta have some some
hey daddy-o, you're in a freaking YouTube video

summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!
shenanigans!
summer shenanigans!

May 2011: Break The News Gently

Ok, April is over and done with for one more year and it's time to get back into SERIOUS business. And that can only mean a track so heavily drenched in the 80s, you'll think we accelerated our Deloreans to 88mph!

BREAK THE NEWS GENTLY

oh baby, break the news gently
but don't break me
don't want to cry again in front of them

she asked me if I'd go with you (I said "cool")
he asked you if you'd go with me (you said "mmmm")
at that lunch break I almost swooned
but now it's come to this

oh baby, break the news gently
but don't break me
don't want to cry again in front of them
oh baby, break the news gently
don't ruin the night for me
I already know but I won't let it show

they were playing our favourite song (forever young)
and soda pop in my glass was warm (afri-cola)
round and round the school gym we walked
you didn't hold my hand

oh baby, break the news gently
but don't break me
don't want to cry again in front of them

baby, break the news gently
it lasted barely for half a day
and we didn't get to dance or even sway
but when I'll see you on these same hallways every day
please don't turn your face away in shame
now I know how Reddie Redford feels
in "Princess" by Bogart Co

oh baby, break the news gently
but don't break me
don't want to cry again in front of them
oh baby, break the news gently
don't ruin the night for me
I already know but I won't let it show

Lyrics

newest hottest whatever
newest hottest whatever
keep your act together
newest hottest coolest whatever

it all goes round
so hard to keep track
who's in who's out
either you are new blood
or you're losing ground
the novelty wears out
and it all feels fine
until you hit the ground

it all goes round
but everything is new just once
and we are history
if we can't make it

newest hottest whatever
newest hottest whatever
no prize for good endeavour
newest hottest coolest whatever

it all goes round
so hard to keep track
who's in who's out
either you are new blood
or you're losing ground
the novelty wears out
and it all feels fine
until you hit the ground

it all goes round
until you fall out of style
and oblivion
comes round to take you

newest hottest whatever
newest hottest whatever
nothing lasts forever
newest hottest coolest whatever

it all goes round it all goes round
it all goes round it all goes round

it all goes round
so hard to keep track
who's in who's out
either you are new blood
or you're losing ground
the novelty wears out
and it all feels fine

it all goes round
newest hottest whatever
it all goes round
newest hottest whatever
it all goes round
newest hottest whatever
it all goes round

you want it you get it you have it you use it
you want it you get it you have it you use it
you want it you get it you have it you use it
and then you lose it you lose it you lose it

January 2010: 2010s (Maybe The World Won't End)

Welcome to a new year of Viola Music Club, y'all!

To acknowledge the huge fact that we're transferring over to a whole new decade (and to put in our 2 cents into the debate whether it's "the two thousand tens" or "the twenty tens"), here's our highly topical and current track about... the new decade, the 2010s!

Lyrics

2010s, maybe the world won't end
so I can spend time with you again
2010s, maybe the world won't end
so I can spend time with you again

things aren't what they used to be
the world is a strange and fragile place
we're not who we used to be
our dreams they have no end

2010s, maybe the world won't end
so I can spend time with you again
2010s, maybe the world won't end
so I can spend time with you again

things aren't what they used to be, I know
the world is a strange and fragile place
we're not who we used to be for so long
our dreams they have no end no end no end

2010s, maybe the world won't end
so I can spend time with you again
2010s, maybe the world won't end
so I can spend time with you again

forward and forward
further and further
forward and forward
closer and closer

2010s, maybe the world won't end
2010s, maybe it will make sense
2010s, maybe the world won't end
2010s, maybe it will make sense
2010s, maybe the world won't end
2010s, maybe it will make sense
2010s, maybe the world won't end
so I can spend time with you again

Lyrics

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Hey baby, please don't stop
You move, you move me so
Let the music flow

Hey baby, just don't stop
I'm your captive on the dance floor
I want to see much more

I can't keep up with you
I get out of step
This is too much
Make-up's running down.

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Hey baby, please don't stop
A kiss is what I'm longing for
One look and I'm all yours

Hey baby, just don't stop
The night is young
oh no
I'm already getting slow

Do I have to keep going on
Don't you already know
you have to take me
home with you

Oh how you dance
You have to take me

Oh how you dance
This is too much

Oh how you dance
You have to take me
home with you

I Don't Know How To Party

The sheep song! Anybody who's seen us live in the latter part of the 00's knows how it feels, when sheep cry.

Thumping electro-rock dedicated to all the people shying in the corner of the room of a hot party.

Lyrics

social gravity
keeps our gaze on the ground
moral vanity
won't let us see all sides
no deeper meaning
behind the lines
in which we wait for hours and hours

don't invite me
I can't get the beat
cos I don't know how to party
I don't know how to groove
or to shake it loose
no, I don't know how to party

frail identity
confusion by design
false diversity
neatly categorized
we keep miswanting
the same lies
that made our fathers drop the fight

don't invite me
I can't get the beat
cos I don't know how to party
I don't know how to groove
or to shake it loose
no, I don't know how to party

Dance The Distance

Lyrics

gaze into the stars
and dance the distance
as long as you dance
you're safe from harm
there's a distant world
where sorrows whirl
the slightest wind could blow
them to your door
but if you wish you can
escape their cold hands
just dance the distance

gaze into the stars
and dance the distance
as long as you dance
you're safe from harm
on a distant city square
starts a new massacre
families forced to flee
towards new atrocities
but you can hide those sights
under the disco lights
you can dance the distance

gaze into the stars
and dance the distance
gaze into the stars
you're safe from harm

gaze into the stars
and dance the distance
as long as you dance
you're safe from harm
famine, poverty
test lab guinea pigs
bombs, barbarities
nature catastrophes
malice, grudges, war
keep them from the dancefloor
you just dance the distance
