The Deckhands

BandRockBlues

The likelihood of one of the Deckhands buying you a round of drinks in return for paying Boston's ridiculous cover-charges is good. The likelihood of one of the Deckhands making out with you is even better. The likelihood of you loving our music either way is guaranteed.

Lyrics

Don't Got You

Written By: Julia Hughes

I'm the kind of girl who likes to play it cool.
You're the kind of girl who does really well in school.
I've got lots of friends and lots of hobbies too, yeah.
It's all going on for me, baby, except with you.

Well my folks they always seem to understand.
That time at Lambert's Cove I got a bit out of hand.
I put my clothes back, I only lost a shoe!
Yeah, it's all going on for me, baby, except with you.

I never know which way the Ferry's headed to,
and I never know if I can swim quite as fast as you.
I talk a lot of shit, but one thing is true:
Baby, I got nothing if I don't got you.

That time in freshman gym, I swear you smiled at me.
I know there's more to you beyond renowned apathy.
You helped me out in math when I didn't have a clue.
Yeah, it's all going on for me, baby, except with you.

I never know which way the Ferry's headed to,
and I never know if I can swim quite as fast as you.
I talk a lot of shit, but one thing is true:
Baby, I got nothing if I don't got you.

Not My Cigarette

Written By: Julia Hughes

Try to be a good girl 'cuz I know that's what you prefer.
Got a thing for Hayley Mills and want me to act like her.
Home each night be 8 o'clock and fast asleep by 10-
No, it's not my cigarette, I'm only holding it for a friend.

When we go out for the night you make me hold your hand.
Order me a seltzer and then tell me where to stand.
Don't got much in common but we like to play pretend.
No, it's not my cigarette, I'm only holding it for a friend.

See me in the paper and in trashy magazines.
May not like my morals but at least I'm keeping clean.
Watch as I go tripping and rebounding once again-
No, it's not my cigarette, I'm only holding it for a friend.
