♥ About The Hazzards
Sydney Maresca & Anne Harris have been playing the ukulele together in NYC since meeting at a party in 2000. Originally known as "The Ukes of Hazzard", they shortened their name to stay on the right side of the law.

A dance remix of their song “Gay Boyfriend” was released in the UK and debuted at #67 on the UK singles charts beating Seal who debuted that same week at #68!

The Hazzards have charmed audiences all over New York, the UK, and the internet. Their video for “Gay Boyfriend” was downloaded over a million times within 3 months of its initial posting! “Shut Up & Make Out,” The Hazzards latest video, is directed by Casimir Nozkowski, creator of the internet hit cryingwhileeating.com.

A Comedy Central favorite, The Hazzards captivated US television audiences as part of the “Out on the Edge” special and “World Stands Up” series. And now The Hazzards can charm you through your phone! Anne & Sydney have created a suite of ringtones, exclusively available through Comedy Central mobile.

Originally a ukulele/Casio SK-1/glockenspiel/tambourine duo, The Hazzards are now playing with a full band: Will Carlough (The US Patent Office, Conquistador) on drums, Andrew Dickerson (CirqueThis!) on bass, and Paul Thureen (The Debate Society, Children with Hands) on harp!

Lyrics

Shut Up and Make Out

Written By: Anne Harris, Sydney Maresca

Ooh, you're sitting so close to me
And I am as happy as could be
If only you'd stop talking about your mom
Your one man show
And your semester abroad

But those eyes are so blue
And as I lean in close to you
You start anylizing Slaughterhouse Five
Kurt's prose is good
But the structure's contrived

Now hush your pretty lips
I'm going to give you just one little tip
Shut up and make out
Shut up and make out
Shut up and make out with me

Now we've made it back to your place
So let's continue sucking face
Just keep that guitar far, far away from me
You've got better things to show me than your poetry

I'm not here for romance
I'm going to give you just one more chance
To shut up and make out
Shut up and make out
Shut up and make out with me

Shut up and make out
Shut up and make out
Shut up and make out with me

Shut up and make out with me
Shhh.

Girl Beer

Written By: Anne Harris, Sydney Maresca

Ooh la la la la, girl beer
Ooh la la la la, girl beer

Girl beer is an awesome malt drink
Instead of tasting beer-y, it tastes pink
Tastes like candy and it works like wine
We love it and we drink it all the time
Ooh la la la la, girl beer
Ooh la la la la, girl beer

Razzleberry grape, watermelon mist
Passion-fruit spritzer, lime-o-nade twist
They're pretty, we're pretty
So pretty

Girl beer makes you feel like kissing and dancing
Pizza tastes amazing and you look enchanting
When I drink it I peer-pressure and swear
I dirty talk and try to touch your underwear
Ooh la la la la, girl beer
Ooh la la la la, girl beer

Purple, orange, green
Red, aquamarine
They're sweet, we're sweet
So sweet

Budweiser, Michelob, they all taste shitty
We stick with our girl beer, it makes us feel pretty
You can call us sissy but we don't care
You drink your whisky, we'll drink our girl beer
Ooh la la la la, we'll drink our girl beer
Ooh la la la la, we'll drink our girl beer
We'll drink our girl beer
