about

Based on a person we knew back in the day.

lyrics

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

about

drunkdude69 Cleveland, Ohio

DD69 music has been described as “a rip through a well-stocked jukebox, with smooth funk that would have been at home on a turntable three decades ago mixing with a contemporary guitar-heavy party vibe that could have been recorded two weeks ago.”

The music has drawn comparisons to classic artists like Stevie Wonder and Frank Zappa, as well as contemporary bands like Sublime and 311.
