Lyrics

This song has been in the background of my mind for a while.

--------------------------
Let me tell y’all what it’s like
Being bald, upper class, and white
It’s great, and if you don’t believe
Listen up, I’m on 980
Come on, (come on man, what are we even doin’ out here man?!)

Prius drivers runnin’ in my lane
Chicken parm is coarsin’ through my veins
Keep your bike out there in the rain
Lack of robes makes me go insane

I live in the suburbs
Payin’ phone bills for my kids
I live in the suburbs
Yeah I know I’m talented
I live in the suburbs
I get my checks and grab my axe
When some intruder breaks on through
And trips on all of my knickknacks

I get scared goin’ on my flights
But love standing in a Subway line
Intern’s out for check engine lights
Goin’ to bed at eight tonight

Toaster oven cooks my steak
All I do is belly ache

I live in the suburbs
Paid for school for all my kids
I live in the suburbs
Raju called me untalented
I live in the suburbs
I buy slacks at Nordstrom’s, Jack
‘Some Brit producer with computers
Screws up all my vocal tracks.

John - I am sorry I didn't take the chance to say hello - but wanted to let you know, somehow I missed this song when it aired originally. It was definitely my new favorite!!! You did a great job at the show - thanks for the entertainment. Carroll

Haha. The funny thing is I sent him a shorter version when I recorded it, but the normal one got played. It's nice to see Nigel is coming to the site to get stuff so the songs don't get lost amongst all the other email the show gets.

Figured I should change back to my name after the show today...I changed it to my alternate ID when applying for jobs cause some people might not like that I wrote a song for, erm, a certain game-picking guest ??

It's gonna take me a week to catch up on the jingles, but this one is great. And of course I'm totally in if you want me to do Underground... jingle length or full length.

Awesome, we should try and come up with something, will send out an email to see if we can recruit JF. I am traveling to Europe next week though, will be back in early March. Will start bouncing ideas off you two in the meantime and keeping up with the pod as well.

That song is fantastic. I'm down with doing it for sure - might have to bring Jason on to add some bass and do it fresh! I got another Ben Folds song in the works as well. He's like my generation's Billy Joel!

Nice, John! I have wanted to do Underground for a long time but have not found the right spot. This is great!
