Like Indian musicians, we tuned together
Stroboscopic Tuners, revealed that we never
Played a gig in Concert pitch – whatever.
New drumheads were stolen
Boiled bass strings saved money
Pitch Pipes were our first harmonicas
Riding White Swans
We were Kids of the Revolution
Thank the gods for glam and David Bowie
The Sweet at the I-Beam and their 3-part harmonies
Deep Purple and The Beach Boys combined
That a good catchy song makes a band worth it’s char-monies.
Took NOFX a decade to find
Buddy Holly died the day that Lol was born
Lol became Big Bopper a natural showstopper
Busby Berkeley twirled, and Budgie sought ‘em!
Beatles for Sale and Budgie bought ‘em!
The Captain was Awesome in the Village of The Damned
Lol and Mikey D said, ‘Should we call on Rat’s Mum?’
NOFX had 10 years of peace until Covid
Mike had No music as a kid
No smoking behind the bike sheds
No Drugs, no Pot, no Meth heads
Outsiders for life – it’s a Gas!
Mike? Still a punk at his High-School reunion?
Retirement? – No way!
Mike is living the dream again!
Lol’s American Passport – Berlin black shirt and round glasses – Beatles in Hamburg
10,000 hours – 16 chords – Ringo’s Drumstick – Mike Loves 8 times
Oasis plagiarism – Sleaford Modism – Burgundy Velvet Underwear!!!!!
Lol went to Nashville – gave Johnny Cash a No-no
Fishbowl studio tour guides, Flea and Fred a Go-go
What a Lovely Fellow Mike is!
Respect: Buddy Holly (September 7th, 1936 – February 3rd, 1959)
