The Lyrics

...in honor of my days in a garage band...
" 'leven-thirty, dammit ! ", boomin' out, was some guy
guess he thought our sound offensive, almost midnight, nigh
he wants to move
playin' in a dabblin' band...yeah
well, my neighbor took a stand
found us out of hand
playin' in a dabblin' band

makin' lots of noise, hell...garbage songs, oh well
come on, come on, all our neighbors hate our tunes
they wanna move
playin' in a dabblin' band...yeah
and although we think its grand
they don't understand
playin' in a dabblin' band

louder than a radio, neighbors catch the late show
someone got excited and they started to get vicious
danger loomed
playin' in a dabblin' band...yeah
when you rile a brutish man
fists are gonna land
playin' in a dabblin' band
YOW !

here we go again on a saturday night
oh, neighbors cussin', unrelentless
and they want to start a fight
their tempers zoom
playin' in a dabblin' band...yeah
well, a ruckus wasn't planned
quite the reprimand
playin' in a dabblin' band

oh, playin' in a dabblin' band
playin' in a dabblin' band
coppers threw us in the can
just for playin' in a dabblin' band
ain't no freedom in this land
i don't understand
playin' in a dabblin' band
YOW !

Still there, stil doing it, but luckily out guitar player's shed is soundproofed enough that the only living thing we annoy is the neighborhood peacock.

Although that peacock does a good Robert Plant impression.

It seems to me me unlikely that (m)any of those (555) neighbors would've been, as you claim, " _un_relentless" in their cussin' and fist flingin'. :-)

(I suspect my some of our other neighbors felt the same when, as a 5th grader beginning trombonist and trumpeter, respectively, I and my classmate/back fence neighbor would practice together every afternoon, each blaring out the facing rear windows of his own house. Could've been worse, tho. Brassy blats are 'waaaayyyy more ear-easy than woodwind squeals. :-)

thanks mckludge...the squawk of the peacock is right behind the howler monkey obnoxious-wise....god bless garage bands...thanks stan...you are correct about the neighbors...no violence ever occured and you could count the times the police were called on one hand

Sir Alvin, I love the fact that you, Sir, along with so many of the Knights here, are GarageBand Alumni. (Oh, pardon me, with the exception of Mr McRude, who is still an 'active member ' of such knavery!) I, too , was the ChickVocalist, in a shall we say, a BarnBand ? ? ? Cowboy John played guitar (still does)Jim on drums, & My Ex, ~RayGuy~ , on bass guitar. . . . I got Spurs that jingle, jangle, jingle, as I go merrily along; and they sing, "Oh, ain't you glad you're single" . . .

Every teenager who lived on our block had to have a set of drums and they could be heard a block away. When one leaves, he is replaced by another. (Remember my parody of MacArthur Park.)

Sir 2Ease, do you still have GarageBands in your neighborhood, sir ? ? Most teens are only 'on computers' these days, which for you, sir, translates to less NOISE !
