BandRockAmericana

Like a '32 coupe with a flathead engine, revved up full throttle at the corner of Old Skool Country and Punk, a hoodlum behind the wheel and rock n' roll blasting out of the radio with harmonies and hooks that make the kittens purr and the squares run for cover.

Lyrics

Sad Little Girl

Written By: C. Andersen, Howlin' Sound BMI

It was a hot summer day
Coming out of the woods
at the park, from a distance
She looked like she'd been raped

Her clothes were falling off
She was yelling and waiving her arms, so I stopped to see if she was OK.

I saw the black circles under her eyes
She asked if I could give her a ride
She couldn't have been more than 21
Her life had become what she once did for fun

SAD LITTLE GIRL with tracks in her arms.......

Call Girl Shuffle

Written By: C. Andersen, Howlin' Sound BMI

She's got the CALL GIRL SHUFFLE
And she's walking my way
She's got the CALL GIRL SHUFFLE
Putting on a display
I ain't got any money
If it's pay for play
She's not a working girl
But she always get paid......

Watch her walk, watch her walk
Watch her walk
I feel like Pavlov's dog...........
