Biography

When four musical boys get together and three of them kick one out and then the three write a bunch of songs and some they think are really great but later they think they suck and they keep doing so over and over until they are left with a bunch that they absolutely love and a bunch that they don't play anymore and then they record them and play them for others and others like them and they change their name and they dream of the world liking their songs and maybe they will let other boys and girls play the songs with them and then they will all grow up and the three boys will become policemen or firemen or other men they feared becoming as boys because now they have to settle down with a little girl (or another boy as they might discover about themselves) and their dream will be over...

Born Ruffians aim to take the rough out of ruffians. Primarily because it wasnt there in the first place, but also because it just aint their style. Luke Lalonde, Steve Hamelin and Mitch DeRosier are Born Ruffians, but thankfully for their audience, are currently tame. With electric guitar, electric bass guitar, a set of drums and the occasional interjection from a trombone, keyboard, shlang dang or jazz flute, their music is tightly knit into a rock and roll top hat, from which they pull out a dancing, indie rabbit (def: indie rabbit: n. A small furry, long-eared animal with cred and an angular haircut and/or sweater vest).

Lyrics

This sentence will ruin/save your life

Written By: Lalonde

hey hey hey hey oooooooo etc...

I need to know who I am
and what I'm going to do while I'm on earth
I need to understand
everything and everybody's lives

I need to get up tomorrow
I have to mail that letter and pay that bill
deadlines, deadlines, deadlines
write that essay, and pray on the windowsill

hey hey hey hey hey hey hey oooooooooooo etc...

lines, lines jump from line to line
just one, do one at a time
this one's all about mine mine mine
solve one try then keep on trying
i'm sculpting my philosophy
in patterns going 1,2,3
I'm trying your monogamy
in increments of 1 through 3

I need to eat I'm hungry
I'll grab a bight of a BLT
That’s all I want right now…
With some juice, no… coffee.

I need a girlfriend, I’m lonely
Someone to love me and fuck me
I need to get laid immediately
But also someone to fulfill my needs

Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey oooooooo etc…

I need success to be wealthy
I’m hanging on to my simplicity
I need a nice car and nice clothes
Fatter lips and a smaller nose
I need to learn I need to grow
I want to know. No no no no no no no no
I need nice hair… no women
Nice hair, then women. Until then…

AHHHHHHHH

lines, lines jump from line to line
just one, do one at a time
this one's all about mine mine mine
solve one try then keep on trying
I'm sculpting my philosophy
in patterns going 1,2,3
I'm trying post modernity
in increments of 1 through 3
