Ocha la Rocha

BandRockAvant-garde

Ocha la Rocha defies gravity, speaks in tongues, handles snakes, administers rapture and is generally thought of not so much as a band, but as a sort of modern day witch doctor of the southern rock variety.

Biography

Ocha la Rocha hails from the post-industrial new streets of south Decatur in eastern Atlanta, where once upon a time vast herds of yellow bicycles roamed free through gorges of rusting antique cars. The bicycles have long been replaced by legions of small dogs, snapping at each other's tails and howling at the moon with voices much deeper than their size would suggest. Ocha la Rocha embodies the spirits of both wild bicycles and wailing dogs. Urbanely southern, uncouth, charming and friendly, Ocha la Rocha's flavor of southern rock is unapologetically gleeful, immodest, without being lewd, playful without being glib. When Ocha la Rocha plays in public, people are known to dance, and some of them even dance double time to show their enthusiasm for certain songs. Equally enthusiastic are the moms of Ocha la Rocha's four members, who want nothing more than for their boys to grow up and be rock stars. All four members of Ocha la Rocha are from Georgia. When asked how they felt about this, one grunted, one spit, one rolled his eyes, and one exposed himself to the heavens.

Lyrics

Occam's Razor

Written By: Ocha la Rocha

Streetwise strumpet teach me more
about what you deplore

You've got a thing for Wall Street has beens

They've got your dime and, little time for you, for you

When the razor is pointed at you drop straight down to your knees

Don't try to please, just seize what you need

Cause when the razor is pointed at you drop straight down to your knees
F.B.I won't you read the same books that I do

You've got the access now you better do it right

It's your plight

Yeah proclaim history to me

Decide who lives and who dies inside, inside of me

When the razor is pointed at you drop straight down to your knees

Don't try to please, just seize what you need

Cause when the razor is pointed at you drop straight down to your knees

The day has come for me to take my own advice

It seems everyday I wake from my bed that I need more from you, more from you

When the razor is pointed at you drop straight down to your knees

Don't try to please, just seize what you need

Cause when the razor is pointed at you drop straight down to your knees
To your knees.

Chances Are

Written By: Ocha la Rocha

Chances are that you've already made it

Stopped those cravings and given yourself a chance

Given yourself a chance

And you could if you wanted to
If you wanted to
If you wanted to
If you wanted to you could

Times are good here despite the madness

You're dearly missed and your prescence is requested

Your prescence is requested
Now come if you only can

If you only can
If you only can
If you only can you should

Country Ditty in G

Written By: Ocha la Rocha

Two tone hightops just might keep ya square

And knee-high stripper boots always beware

Smelly old sandals got a good grip on life

Barefoot Buddhist lives his life on strife

Do remember to tread lightly
On the ones that led you there
And if you'd like to
I will show you, with care

Low-pro hipster sneaks driving towards style

And stark white running shoes help you through the miles

High heeled pumps pumping per pound

Dainty ballet slippers don't make a sound

Do remember to tread lightly
On the ones that led you there
And if you'd like to I will show you, with care

So Simon

Written By: Ocha la Rocha

When I get this feeling
and I'm out stealing
I don't ever think
I just have to act

What's the point in being
Like these folks I'm seeing
Living like I'm dreaming
Is where it's at

So simon won't you show me
All those things you told me
Simon says, I'm a likely heir

I'm a likely
I'm a likely
I'm a likely heir

The end is going out
The night is running out
The drugs are wearing off
That's where I'm at

Now it's Monday morning
Missing Sunday morning

I'm holding mescaline
Tell me will this end?

Oh poor Simon
Oh poor boy
Oh poor Simon
Oh poor boy
Oh poor Simon
Ain't the heir
Ain't the heir to the throne
