NASTY ABBOTT

BandRockPop

60's garage with an 80's retro twist. entire show is really varied from rock to punk, from blues to rockabilly. everything has our own unique sound. we always seem to have something for everyone.

Biography

on the songs we stick with the basics and everyone puts a piece of their own character into each song. it can really change how the song is written. we say we nastify our songs. our influences range from mozart to black sabbath. we've played with andy starr recording artist from the 50's and dean mathis (newbeats) from the 60's. we grew up in the 70's and 80's and matured in the 90's so we have 5 decades of influence behind us and we put it all to good use.

Lyrics

PICTURE ON MY WALL

Written By: KATE DOSS AND ROBERT ABBOTT

Figures in time, never moving
Black upon white, never proving yourself to me
Two dimensions, so far apart
False intentions, my heart is in your hands

I look into your eyes, you don’t look back
I ask you why, you don’t talk back
Picture on my wall, that’s all you ever were
And that’s all you’ll ever be, picture on my wall
I see you loving him, I want you loving me

Lost in time, today was years ago
You’ve never been mine, the seconds move slowly in the night
Fading colors, fading love
Fading images, what can be done

I look into your eyes, you don’t look back
I ask you why, you don’t talk back
Picture on my wall, that’s all you ever were
And that’s all you’ll ever be, picture on my wall
I see you loving him, I want you loving me

Picture on my wall
Picture on my wall

IF THERE WAS NO YOU

Written By: RONDA YODER AND ROBERT ABBOTT

If there was no you
The sun wouldn’t shine
The rain would be constant
And I’d be blue all the time

If there was no you
The songs wouldn’t be
Worth near as much
As when you were with me

If there was no you
The words wouldn’t rhyme
The nights would be black
And the stars wouldn’t shine

If there was no you
I couldn’t stand to live
To spend the rest of my life
Without the love that you give

If there was no you
Oh if there was no you

IMAGINARY GIRLFRIEND

Written By: ROBERT ABBOTT

I’VE GOT AN IMAGINARY GIRLFRIEND
SHE’S EVERYTHING I WANT
SHE HAS LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY
SHE HAS THE SWEETEST LITTLE HONEY

I’VE GOT AN IMAGINARY GIRLFRIEND
SHE’S JUST SO UNBELIEVABLE
SHE’S SO SO SO MUCH FUN
SHE LIKES TO LIVE LIFE ON THE RUN

HAVE YOU SEEN MY GIRLFRIEND
YOU’LL NEVER SEE US TOGETHER
I KNOW WE’RE SO MUCH IN LOVE
I JUST WISH SHE KNEW WHO I WAS

I’VE GOT AN IMAGINARY GIRLFRIEND
SHE’S SO UNDERSTANDING
SHE GIVE ME LOTS AND LOTS OF LUST
AND SHE NEVER GIVES ME A FUSS

HAVE YOU SEEN MY GIRLFRIEND
YOU’LL NEVER SEE US TOGETHER
I KNOW WE’RE SO MUCH IN LOVE
I JUST WISH SHE KNEW WHO I WAS
