about

Ram on the 'rant', Carolyn on slide guitar.

lyrics

I was working a door at a club
where the technistas and hipsters meet
sunglasses, big hair, man buns everywhere.
Now this guy tried to come inside
porkpie hat eyes open wide
with a fashion statement most extrodinare.

Chorus 1 .

The guy had no pants
eyes glazed like he was in a trance
tried to bribe me with money
that smelled kind of funny.
The guy with no pants tried to tell me
he came from France.
Tried to get by me just wearing
a pair of BVDs.

Hey its cold out here can I come inside
he said while wobbling side to side
with a voice full of false cheer
“I got my handstamp right here”
I left my cell phone inside he said
while swaying side to side.
But the problem what what he didn’t wear.


Chorus 2

The guy had no pants
eyes eyes glazed like he was in a trance
tried to bribe me with money
that smelled kinda funny.
The guy with no pants said he was a
master of modern dance
tried to get by me just wearing
a pair of BVDs.

The Rant....
Ahhh c’mon be cool dude.
Can’t you tell I’m an artist?
Look my parents could buy and sell you pal.
Hey don’t close the door
its cold out here.
Capitalists!! Bourgeois!! Republican!!
Open this door
let me guess—you hate all creative people.

Chorus 3

The guy with no pants
eyes glazed like he was in a trance
tried to bribe we money
that smelled kinda funny.
The guy with no pants
tried to tell me he came from France
Tried to get by me just wearing
a pair of BVDS.......
