Basement Band
by Ken Feldman

II ride with the sound of motorbikes running
I bow to my left and to my right
I try to keep the right questions coming
And I dream of the sound of a back beat tonight

And oh I got to make it to the show
Check the clock, grab my bags,
turn out the lights, and hit the road
I can’t talk now I hope you understand
I’m playing in a basement band
Eight to five grind is a million light years away
From here today

My lens keeps the light shining on the star
This set sings with my sweat and my tears
I make you look good no matter who you are
Still I’m gone when done with your veneer

Oh got to make it to the show
Check the clock, grab my bags,
turn out the lights, and hit the road
I can’t talk now I hope you understand
I’m playing in a basement band
Eight to five grind is a million light years away
From here today

What’ll it be Pop can I pour you a beer
My pride left when I came back home
Did I tell you I toured Europe it’s been a few years
Man you should have seen me when I was on my own

And oh got to make it to the show
Check the clock, grab my bags,
turn out the lights, and hit the road
I can’t talk now I hope you understand
I’m playing in a basement band
Eight to five grind is a million light years away
From here today
