lyrics

This is a song that we used to play in our band
This is a song that we used to play in our band
Just name a song, and we'll play it like we did in our band
This is a song that we used to play

In our band (repeat)

This is a song that we used to play in our band
It's not our song - got it from the radio, man
We took it on even though it was secondhand
It wasn't long 'till we became a cover band

We thought we could make it big, get to the promised land
But got no money for our own songs, so please understand
We learned to dig cover gigs, it was all cash in hand
So if you shell out, we will sell out as a cover band

In our band (repeat)

Roxanne is a song that we used to play in our band
But every night there was this red light that we just couldn't stand
We got it wrong, it was our swan song they would demand
It was a song that we used to play
Hey Jude is a song that we used to play in our band
'But do you play any songs by Franz Ferdinand?'
Well how about Take Me Out?
'Yeah, I'm a big fan!'
Cos that's a song that we used to play

In our band (repeat)

We weren't there in the summer of '69
But we were living on a prayer, we were born to be wild
We would smell like teen spirit, we would drink red, red wine
We were wearing baggy trousers, we would stop...Anna time
On the stairway to heaven we would get our teenage kicks
We would rock an Abba medley and a Grease megamix
When we went under the bridge, we would do the Louis Louis
When we rode with Mustang Sally we would lick her tutti frutti
But these blue suede shoes gave us the summertime blues
We weren't the sultans of swing, we were just daytrippin'
We would get no satisfaction when we played My Generation
We were losing our religion, we had growing superstition
Never Johnny B. Goode, this was bad to the bone
So we just said
'Screw it all!
Show us the way to go home!'

Show us the way to go home (repeat)

In our band!
