GOTTA GET RID OF THIS BAND (Shel Silverstein) Bobby Bare - 1980 Oh, I gotta get rid o' this band They're rockin' too hard for a country music man I preach 'em and I teach 'em, but they don't understand I tell you folks I gotta get rid o' this band Now that fella there on lead guitar, he's a natural dude He never takes showers and just eats nature food And if you share a room with him, then friends, I think you'd understand Just why I gotta get rid o' this band (Guitar Solo) Now my friend there on piano, he been known to do some dope There's nothin' he won't sniff or swaller or smoke And sometimes he's just too damn stoned to help me reach the stand Oh, I gotta get rid o' this band (Piano Solo) Oh damn, I gotta get rid o' this band Now those boys on bass and drums, you know they're country through and through But they wanna wear makeup like the rock stars do But they smile at each other and sometimes they hold hands Too long on the road, I gotta get rid of this band We got a honey talkin' pretty boy there on that steel guitar And the girls don't realize that I'm the star Now when anybody interferes with my romantic plans They're gone, I gotta get rid of'this band (Steel Guitar Solo) Just smile big now Alright! Yeah, I gotta get rid o' this band Rockin' too hard for a country music man I preach 'em and I teach 'em, but they don't understand That's why I gotta get rid o' this band You're all fired!
