Please Turn Down the Bass

we’re at a sidewalk cafe / my friend the ear doctor and I

a little car with monster speakers / booms and thumps on by

the good doctor grabs the tab / says ¬†“kids like that one there

are jam-packed into my waiting room / now I’m a millionaire”

(chorus) please turn down the bass / please turn down the bass

Jesus Christ / please turn down the bass

I go home to my apartment / time for my daily nap

suddenly my next door neighbors / are cranking up some rap

the apartment walls are shaking / books belly-flop from the case

Dave Barry’s in the aquarium / bubbles shooting out of his face (repeat chorus)

I have a recurring nightmare / I’m over at symphony hall

I’m looking at two big speakers / both about 90 feet tall

then I scan the orchestra / and here’s where it gets bizarre

in their fancy gowns and tuxedos / they’re all holding bass guitars (repeat chorus)
