The Lyrics

I walked into my grocery store tonight and heard "Down in the Boondocks" and before I finished shopping I had developed most of my song....
Every night I hear the sounds from cars out on the street;
I mean that sound that's really deep, a loud bassy driving beat.
I don't care for it that much, it bugs me more than it should,
so I guess I'll play my '60's tunes on my transistor that's not very good.

The sound of the boombox (sound of the boombox)
The sound of the boombox (sound of the boombox)
People think I'm strange, 'cause that's not the sound I'm use to.
She has one. So does he. I guess to live in this society,
Lord have mercy I was born without a boombox.

On one night I heard that sound again as it came back.
I really wish I had sound proofed my big old home shack.
And so I'm back to that transitor of mine and chorus one more time-

The sound of the boombox (sound of the boombox)
The sound of the boombox (sound of the boombox)
People think I'm strange, 'cause that's not the sound I'm use to.
She has one. So does he. I guess to live in this society,
Lord have mercy I was born without a boombox.
