about

This is DD69's second release, and we seem to have a thing going: combining rock riffs with tastes of funk, ska, and other genres we like.

The 10 songs on "Wigs" are a little more cohesive than our previous release - and it took about 1/5th of the time to finish the project. Included herein you'll also find a drunkdude-styled cover of Billy Joel's "Somwhere Along the Line". We hope you find something to dig among these tunes.

Track Name: Keep It Up
Sometimes life can be serious
but listen when I say
We have come here to tell you
You've got to have some time to play
Working hard is a virtue
Got things to do, go on and get em done
But feeling good will never hurt you, no
Come on, look up at the sky, get a little high, have some fun


While we've got the time we've gotta party
The time is right so get it started
Got to get it going get it going
Got to keep it going strong
Gonna do it right, do it every night
If it feels all right keep going 'til daylight
Gotta keep it up, keep it up
Keep it up all night long


There's no reason to worry
Even though it's hard not to feel that way
Life is too short to hurry through
Got to make the most out of every day
That's the message we bring you
Consider all the possibilities
When you've had time to think it through
Well we're sure you'll understand and we're positive that you'll agree


If you pay attention
To this philosophy
There’s no need to mention
That you’ve got to get away, seize the day, everyday
Come on and do it with me
Track Name: No Time For Sleeping
When the winter breaks
And this black-and-white world gives celebration
With growing green and blossoming sun
We will feel the beat
Of a sleeping heart about to awaken
Voices rise as one
And where the dream comes from
Will become our garden

Now we ride the wave
As the river makes its way to the ocean
To join the endless indigo sky
Every summer day
In a sea of golden rays we'll be floating
Voices rise as one
And where the stream comes from
Will become our garden


I've got a song for you
No better time for singing
Never know what the next minute could be bringing
Now the world is new
No time left now for sleeping
Time to wake up
But
Never time to stop dreaming
Track Name: U Got 2 Funk It
If you want to then you've got to funk it
If you want to then you've got to funk it up
If you want to then you've got to funk it
If you want to then you've got to funk it up


This is your life
Your time to shine
Got to feed the fire in your soul
The perfect vibe
Comes from inside
Let the real you take control

Only one choice so raise your voice
Fill the air with vibrations, get up, make some noise
Whisper or shout
Leave no room for doubt
Spread the word, tell the world, tell the girls, tell the boys (yes!)
Get unconfined you're one of a kind
Feel the bass race your pulse, moving up and down your spine
Let the music move you
Let it flow right through you
If you seek the truth you know that's what you're gonna find


You are a star
In your own sky
When you let your inner light show through
Never deny
Your state of mind
To yourself you must be true

Time to decide, not to divide
Feel a new fascination, don't be satisfied
Emancipate
Yourself, liberate
Yourself, come one come all 'cause we're going worldwide (yes!)
Plant the seed, help them that need
Feel the sound all around moving at the light speed
Let the feeling move you
Let it flow right through you
If you seek the truth you know it's gonna set you free
Track Name: The 2-Inch Mile
He drinks vodka
He'll smoke cigarettes if you've got 'em on ya
And he carries a case full of wasted days and nights
With Valium he tries
Sleeping for a while
You give that boy two inches and he'll turn 'em into a mile
(and then the horns say)

He's important
Got to be out the door at eight in the morning
Then he sleeps on the floor until four in the afternoon
With bags under his eyes
He offers me a smile
You give that boy two inches and he'll turn 'em into a mile
(and then the band plays)


He don't listen
He don't play
He just wasted another day
He don't listen to us anymore
Picks up his case and walks out the door


He's got talent
Working on his next "platinum album"
But he still has to walk 'cause he can't afford bus fare
He showed me the receipts
The studio keeps them on file
You give that boy two inches and he'll turn 'em into a mile

Like a rattlesnake
Every night he sheds his skin
Life is strange
He just wants to be let in
To the in-crowd
Just a DJ
Wants to turn it up loud
Can you hear what we say
Playing tricks with the mix
While we lay the sound down
Says the chicks want his d*ck
Every time he's out of town
Wants to show us how to party hard
Down at the Ranch
Could be a funky superstar
If he gave himself a chance, but
Track Name: It's Alive
The frequency
Is coming through
So strap your brain
Onto my groove

Music is the truth
You know it feels right
Come on raise the roof
Open up your mind

It’s alive!

Amplified
Electric coils
Stir your blood
Until it boils

Come on raise the roof
You know it feels right
Music is the truth
And the double-d-6-9

Is alive!

(spoken)
Boom shaka-lak boom shaka-lak boom
Feel the vibe and the pulse as it’s pumpin through the room
In the red with the beat
From your head to your feet
All shakes no brakes a lightning strike that repeats
Makes u move makes u move
That’s the impact of the groove
Now that u can feel it well there’s nothing left to prove here

Let the medicine
Take control
Breathing life
Into your soul

Music is the truth
You know it feels right
Come on raise the roof
‘cuz the double-d-6-9

Is alive!
Track Name: Wigs & Liquor
We want wigs and liquor
Gonna play the show
Put on our funk face
Get ready to soul
Clock is ticking
Now it’s time to go
Gonna freak out the freaky
When we lose control

We’re not asking for much
Just tune in, turn on
Get on the bus
Give it on up for the funk

What we need are some wigs and liquor
Gonna get funky, gonna get tricky here
Funk is loaded, come on pull the trigger
All we need are some wigs and liquor

We want wigs and liquor
Gonna sing the song
Push all the buttons
All night long
Straight no mixer
You know that's never wrong
Gonna wig slip and trip now
Won’t you come along?

We’re not asking for much
Just tune in, turn on
Get on the bus
Give it on up for the funk

What we need are some wigs and liquor
Gonna get funky gonna get tricky here
Smoke is thick and it’s gonna get thicker
All we need are some wigs and liquor
Track Name: Day To Day
Rat race is on the phone
They want a contribution
Postman is at the door delivering the bills
Scraping by, getting high, asking why's
Become an institution
It's a test of will

CHORUS
What can I say
That you haven't already heard
Everyday
I just try to improve
Got to have faith
I believe in me and you
Nothing's easy
So I take it day to day today

Bad news is front page news
The teevee-heads are talking
Folks stand in line waiting for the verdict to come down
Quick fix politics, dirty tricks
Nothing new is shocking
And the world keeps turning 'round

CHORUS
Track Name: This Is Yer Life
When you woke up this morning
Did you open your eyes?
Could you feel your heart beating
Did you take a minute, just a minute
To realize

Hey yeah yeah
This is your life
Come on, you've got to start to think about it sometime
Hey yeah yeah
This is your life
Come on, get up and get off the dime

Do you look out the window?
Dream of some other place?
Only you have the power
To take control of your time
And your space

(That's why I say)

Hey yeah yeah
This is your life
You've got to take it in your own hands (that's right)
Hey yeah yeah
This is your life
Never give up on your plans

Do what you love
Love what you do
It's working for me
And I guarantee
It'll work for you
Track Name: Now It's All Over
We used to sit in the bucket seats of a smooth ride
Safe inside on a road that kept on going
But time moves on
Like wheels rolling
And the road will bend before we reach the end

Tank was running low but we hit the gas and let it flow
What we didn’t know, it just wasn’t worth knowing
But now we’re driving blind
And the winds are blowing
And we might find the end is just around the bend


Who’s gonna drive
The road less traveled? The path we choose is
Ours to decide
It’s not easy
Shift into gear
We’re steering through a new frontier
Hands on the wheel
(before) It’s all over

It’s dark as night, but we can’t deny we saw the signs
Outside the lines on a road that kept on going
And time moves on
Like wheels rolling
Hope we don’t find the end up around the bend
