JOE LIES

BandRockPop

Joe Lies is a high energy power pop quartet with a repertoire of songs that is catchy, fun, radio friendly and sharp. Great melodies, driving guitar and rhythm section, and a live show that wows audiences and club owners alike, Joe Lies delivers a unique brand of nerd rock that's here to stay.

Biography

For 3 years Joe Lies has delivered its own unique brand of catchy, radio friendly "nerd rock", in the tradition of Weezer, Fountains of Wayne, and others. Splahed with a flair for memorable melodies, driving hooks and a modern pop punk sensibility, this band translates well from CD to stage and continues to stand apart from others in their genre. Their lyrics are clever, witty and cutting, and cover subjects from bad relationships to buying stuff you don't need to kissing the daughter of a famous TV personality (is it true? we'll never tell!). Currently recording songs for their new CD, Joe Lies continues to make its mark in the NY area and plans a tour to support their upcoming release.

Lyrics

Mad Love

Written By: Anthony Lies

Last night I dreamed about the munchkins in Ozland-
I was the scarecrow, and you were the witch-
You threw a fireball right at my shoulder-
you did your best to burn me to a stitch-

I woke, realized I was dreaming-
then I breathed a heavy sigh of relief-
I knew we had to get out of town quickly-
Just the Lion and the Tinman and me-
And if I only had a brain I'd be happy,
I would have run the other way when I met you!

Mad love gone wrong!
I'm drinking every night again-
Mad love gone wrong!
I'm singing this song..

Say goodbye to all your friends and your family-
Say goodbye to all theplaces we go-
Say goodbye to watching late night TV
Say goodbye to the Yellow Brick Road-
Save that for your brother in the army
Save that for your sister at school, you know!

Mad Love gone wrong!
I'm drinking every night again
Mad love gone wrong!
And I'm singing this song

Say your peace, and get off the phone
Just click your heals together, and head on home
My head is achin' , my feet have been hurtin'
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, yah!

(Instrumental)

My head is achin' , my feet have been hurtin'
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain
I was the scarecrow, and you were the witch
you did your best to burn me to a stitch
And if I only had a brain I'd be happy,
I would have run the other way when I met you!

Mad Love gone wrong!
I'm drinking every night again
Mad love gone wrong!
And I'm singing this song

We had plans - To go to the movies
When your cell phone rang.
You were so glad - I got so moody
Cuz I just wanted to hang.

It was your agent from NY
She said you're getting your big break
Soon you'll be movin' to L.A.!

So take your shot - if you wanna
you can be really big.
You can go out - and hang with Madaonna
Wearin' a neon wig!

And Just forget all your old friends
They never liked you anyway
They talked behind your back,
Now they'll pay!

(Ch)
And Baby when it starts
Everyone will treat you like a big star
And baby when it's over,
If you want
You can be my baby again!

Now I see your face - on the cover
Of every magazine
And just yesterday - I talked to your mother
She said you're actin' mean.

At nights you hang in the hottest clubs
And days you work out in the gym
Afternoons it's tonic and gin.

(Ch)
And Baby when it starts
Everyone will treat you like a big star
And baby when it's over,
If you want
You can be my baby again!

Fame is fleeting
It comes and then it goes.
Where it stops, nobody knows!
(yah yah yah)

Another year passed
You're fresh out of rehab
No one remembers your name
You know it can't last, the drugs and the money
Disappear with the fame!

You call me up on the telephone
Say you're coming home for good
I tell everyone in the neighborhood!

(Ch)
And Baby when it starts
Everyone will treat you like a big star
And baby now it's over,
If you want
You can be my baby again!

We can lay around the hosue and watch all your old movies - on VHS
But my place is a mess...
