Biography

Once Upon A(lliteration) Time...

Brian Buffington began by bringing a bevy of brand-new ballads to bunches of bodies who were bereft of brilliance. A guitar and gullet got the guy great glory. Settling on the stage-name, "Soulpatches," the stud serves his Savior through song. Eventually, the renowned Rusty-T. was recruited to run 'round ridiculously and play percussion for 'Patches, perhaps presenting a playful persona to the people. After awhile, Andrew Alford was affixed to guide the group to a grander grade of greatness. Now, no one knows, nor has notion of, the next notch in the savvy belt of Soulpatches & the Second Bananas!

Lyrics

Digital Revolution

Written By: Brian Buffington

For 25 years been listenin to the radio
Things have changed lots, people say I’m awful slow
Sayin go downtown, buy an mp3 player

Goin downtown looking for a best buy
Wanna find one with a price not to high
Maybe this device can turn me around

I can’t wait till my friends can see me
Wait till I get home
So I can synch up my pod with iTunes

Kick my shoes off, socks on the carpet
Gwen Stefani, let’s get a fire started
Static electricity is running through me now
Jammin with my B-A-N-A-N-A-S
Patches and Bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-S
I think we somehow have made a connection, no doubt

Just wanna be hip and feel like I’m 18 again
No mortgage to pay, hanging with my coolest of friends
Maybe this device can turn me around

Kick my shoes off, socks on the carpet
Kelly Clarkson, let’s get a fire started
Static electricity is running through me now
With my friend Parks dancing to “Since you’ve been Gone”
Taking turns listening to our favorite songs
Parks sure does hope she accepts his proposal

Kick my shoes off, socks on the carpet
Fergalicious, let’s get a fire started
Static electricity is running through me now
Soulpatchalicious don’t quite sound right
S to the O to the U L P A T C H E S
Fergie owns all the licious copyrights
They be lining down the block just to watch what I got

The Ballad of Cooter Jack and His Amazing Mullet Haircut

Written By: Brian Buffington

Watch your back Cooter Jack
Billy down the street got a baseball bat
With a mom tattoo on his right cep driving a Ford
Lookin for you with your blue jeans on
Happy as a bird dog gnawing on a bone
You better find somewhere to hide away

Back in 1983 Cooter Jack found a girl named Pearl
With a southern accent and a nice set of bubba teeth
Swimmin and a froggin and doin all of them things
With Pearl by his side and his mullet looking fly
There was nothing that could ever make him feel so right

And he don’t know what’s in store
Everybody in the town knows Pearl’s not pure
Pearl’s beau Billy is living next door
With a loaded shotgun and her ten kids sleeping on the floor

And you can take a good guess what happened next
Billy down the street needed a woman he could beat
So he found Pearl’s car parked underneath a tree

And he don’t know what’s in store
Everybody in the town knows Pearl’s not pure
Pearl’s beau Billy is comin towards the door
If Cooter Jack was a wise boy he be stepping on the floor

My Trailer

Written By: Brian Buffington

i live in a trailer
i live on wheels and more wheels
i love my mother's mashed potatoes
because the way they make me feel
because the way they make me feel

i have a 2007 humvee in the driveway
because my trailer payments, they are so low
and every night i pray, i ask my Lord above
i ask God to please don't, please don't
let my house…

blow away in the midst of the storm
keep it water tight, locked down
in the eye of the hurricane
and spare my 54-inch satellite dish
because i just don't wanna miss
my favorite episode of the wonder years

i love my trailer
my friends think it's so cool
we make music together
to the sound of the rain
of the rain on my tin roof
of the rain on my tin roof

and i don't care about my social class
'cause God knows, i've got too many classes anyway

Someday Soon

Written By: Brian Buffington

I didn’t know you were going to leave me behind
I had no idea you were going to a better place in time
I miss you so, I wish you were here by my side
I want you to know that I love you so much it hurts

And I know you’ll always lend a hand from up on high
And I can tell you’re wondering when I’ll be on the other side
So don’t worry now I’ll see you one day
The time will fly by and the world will go away

You were something else. Always making the bad seem fine
You caring for much more than yourself, Always giving your time
You never complaining about cards dealt, Never seemed to mind
Me wanting a little piece of you to hold within my heart

Jet

Written By: Brian Buffington

I wrote a song to sing for you
I know one day you’ll know it’s true
How I love all you do
I wrote a song to sing

I know you’ll be what you want to be
A doctor or teacher of philosophy
A trash man or singer that’s OK with me
You can be what you want to be

Friends will come and friends will go
You might have a lot or none at all
If the latter is where you find yourself
You can always give your dad a call

You might own a fancy car
A house on a hill with bread in your jar
But if all you own is my guitar
You sure better play it better than me

You might find a real nice girl
With conditioned hair, softest in this world
But if your girl is ugly, trashy and mean
You’ll have to hide her from your mother and me
