From Rodean to Bodeans caff
Dressed by J.F. Leotard
Our art must need to exist (We can’t just want to be a band)

Using the 4, 5, 1 progression can be elegant
Quo and C. Christian do it eloquently (Jet can only make it drag)

The Brit School can move a few hoofers, but you risk coming from a mould….
Technique is always great, but your casual listeners won’t do work

If you go to a show, you’re mostly there to chat to all your friends
So you can’t expect total observation, you should just create for your own ends

Punk is pretensions (ironically)
With prog bands they aren’t pretending….
We could check out Fever Fever’s, “Monster,” single (for inspiration with stage things)
If we make a mistake we should always play on, with smiles on our chops
Take a spare guitar, tune up and practice for ever….
The sound is always bad and they don’t listen much

Being modern is sometimes popular (but nothing else will date as fast)
Using nostalgia’s always good (but you can’t know it will last)

“Backbeat, the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out”
Those lyrics are shit
Infinitely shit

You’re like a grumpy pixie
And maybe I only like you for who you remind me of?
But we both have room for development…. So, can we make a deal?
Each punt at Trinity was named with a connection to threes
K.T. and Duffy have sure been lucky, but in the end they are actually good

Stanivlaski, taught her to feel like a FOX
Lindsay Kemp
Michael Clarke’s screeching website dock
The Vaganova method I’ve decided is ace
The Cecchetti method she was mostly against

Florence Ballard can’t even cash in on the moniker of her own band
You’re like a lovely pixie, so could we make a deal?
