The Flashcats


On The Road With The Flashcats

Drivin' the truck, with Betsy & Joe
Playin' the tapes of last night's show
Lookin' for a bar on a map Carl drew,
We don't know where we are, we're The Flashcats Road Crew

We're Lookin' For The Club, We're Lookin' For The Club
Hope we're goin' the right way, Hope we find it today
Lookin' for the club where we're gonna play.

Tim's talkin' to Betsy sittin' on a drum case
Joe's yellin' at Russ and Steve's out in space
The amps are all bouncin' in the back of the truck,
But Joe says it's okay, so we don't give a darn

We're Lookin' For The Club, We're Lookin' For The Club
It's just down the road, It's time to unload
Park it right here, get this show on the road.

Joe You'll Have To Carry That Amp, Carry That Amp A Long Way
(spoken) Oh, it's got a lotta stairs, but I don't care
I've seen Betsy lift old blue all by herself with one hand tied behind her

Wires, Wires, I wonder where they all go
Wires, Wires, I hope that nothin' explodes
We've got 2 tons of PA, lights and lots of props
Wires, Wires, got set em all up

(spoken) Joe, Joe are you sure you should be puttin' your tongue on that?
I think we've got everything working, maybe the monitors, too
Wires, Wires, Testing 1, 2...

(spoken) Alright, let's see, we've got the smoke machine, we have the flashpots, I see the popsicles, we've got the tea bags, there's the wine bottle,
Cindy's got her 10" record, there's the blow up skeleton,
we've got the giant crab claws, The band, where's the band, in the dressing room.
OK there's just one more thing to do:

Got A Black Magic Marker, time make up the song list
Should we do last night's set or rearrange all of the songs?
It really doesn't matter, Carl will change it all as we go along...

(spoken) And Now Here They Are: The Flashcats!
It's fun to be up here playing, I don't wanna do nothin' else
So thank you all for coming, or however you enjoyed yourself

Funny how time goes on, ain't it funny how time goes on
I just love to play guitar and sing you another song

It was fun to work with Moosey, he really was a great guy
But now he's pickin' up angels, with his Big Ten Inch in the sky
We had good times with you, we had good times with you,

It's sad you're gone but you'll live on, in our records of our favorite Moose
