let's get a girl in the band

well we moved to austin with our new jam band
it's got such a kickin music scene
four berklee grads with awesome chops
like neil peart and geddy lee
we got a fake book several inches thick
and can cover any zappa tune
but everytime we get a gig down on 6th street
we're playing to an empty room

no one comes to our shows
we're playing songs nobody knows
yeah we need a new plan
let's get a girl in the band

so we saw this indie band at SXSW
they had this hot girl playing bass
it was wall to wall hipsters wearing vintage vests
and artsy chicks all over the place
they mumbled something about brooklyn and silver lake
then they sang a song and everyone cheered
that's when i figured out how we could get our big break
a girl could really help our career

we jam all night until we collapse
and no one but the bartender claps
yeah we need a new plan
let's get a girl in the band

so we got this new chick on rhythm guitar
now everybody thinks were great
she's not even very good but it doesn't matter at all
hey, not every girl can be bonnie raitt

this chick really fills out our sound
now we're playin gigs all over town
yeah we got a new plan
we got a girl in the band

this girl really kicks out the jams
and we get to bang all of her friends
yeah we got a new plan
we got a girl in the band
