Biography

The musical saga of Westcott Avenue began in the Summer of 2004 when Brett Schnebelt (Bass/Vocals) began writing humorous and romantic poems for fun. After learning the guitar, he began to turn them into songs. He wanted to progess and that’s when friend Justin Robertson (Guitar) joined the group, sharing Brett’s dream of bringing a style of Pop Punk to the ears of many. After a long process of searching for their drummer, their longtime friend Robert Anders began going to shows, and after the first audition, Robert was added immediately to form the trio of Westcott Avenue. They've played throughout the valley at such places as The Real Bar, Martini Ranch in Scottsdale, Chasers, Famous Sams, UB’s, The Cell Block, Chyro Arts, The Clubhouse, The Sets, The Phix, Skrappys in Tuscon, Studio 111 in Flagstaff, and has appeared at both 103.9 The Edge’s Local Frequency Radio Show, both the 2008 and 2009 Tempe Music Festivals, and opening for Blink 182.

Lyrics

Brandy

Written By: Westcott Avenue

After just a week you went from kissing my cheek
To holding hands and dancing in my pants
I liked it at first, but then you brought out the worst of me
It’s hard to explain, but I can’t complain
After the adventures we had, it makes me real sad
That at the end of the day, I always felt the same way
And I never thought I’d feel so distraught after our never ending romantisy
But it’s all the same to you, I’m just a name
And you should take good aim because I’m a sitting duck
In this game of love, I need a good push shove to wake up

All the sex that we had, it wasn’t half bad
It got awkward with your dad when he walked in that time
You told me not to worry, but my mind was a McFlurry
After visions of my evil-boyfriend crime
Our romance was dead and you gave road-hand instead
You still strapped me to the bed, the way that I adored
And even though we’d always fight and I’d ditch all my friends at nite
You told me that I was Mr. Right and that you loved me more…
But it’s all the same to you, I’m just a name
And you should take good aim because I’m a sitting duck
In this game of love, I need a good push shove to wake up

Oh I wish, you still loved me Brandy, you’re a bitch
But your good Eye candy
Oh I miss, you more than ever, can I kiss
You it’s been forever

I know you miss me serenading you back when we were still dating
Lately I’ve been contemplating getting back with you
I was really going to take you back, even thought your family’s real whack
You surprised me with a heart attack when you’re with some other dude
But it’s all the same to you, I’m just a name
And you should take good aim because I’m a sitting duck
In this game of love, I need a good push shove to wake up

Oh I wish, you still loved me Brandy, you’re a bitch
But your good Eye candy
Oh I miss, you more than ever, can I kiss
You it’s been forever

Hopeless Romantic

Written By: Westcott Avenue


Her short blond hair, Is everywhere
And now I stare at her face
She’s blushing, The blood’s rushing to her head
And I’m about to embrace her, but she won’t smile
So I won’t go for awhile
And I think I love her, I’m in denial
I just want to watch her smile
But she’s so confusing, Her mixed signals are abusing
Will she love me, will she lose me
That’s up to her choosing
It started to get colder, I put my arms around her shoulder
She said “No you’re much too older”
And that’s when I told her…

I’m a Hopeless Romantic, and I’d do anything for her
I’d cross the Atlantic just to buy her flowers
I write her poetry, she walks all over me
What the hell is wrong with me?
I will never know…

Everything I say seems to come out the wrong way
It happened just the other day when we were holding hands
I asked her if she liked me less, of course she had to answer “YES”
Her and I became a mess, and no one understands….

I’m a Hopeless Romantic, and I’d do anything for her
I’d cross the Atlantic just to buy her flowers
I write her poetry, she walks all over me
What the hell is wrong with me?
I will never know…

I called her up three times a day.
Never knowing what to say.
Should I go or should I stay?
Sometimes I wish I was gay.
She thought we were too mismatched.
She left me I’m still attached.
I still haven’t even kissed her.
Now she left I’m going to miss her…

I’m a Hopeless Romantic, and I’d do anything for her
I’d cross the Atlantic just to buy her flowers
I write her poetry, she walks all over me
What the hell is wrong with me?
I will never know…

Shallow

Written By: Westcott Avenue

I woke up last Tuesday night
I’m sorry that we had that fight
Don’t blame yourself, it wasn’t your fault
Actually it was, it was just a result
Of dating a shallow guy
I was born that way, don’t ask me why

Eighteen years later I found out that I just don’t like men
I likes the ladies, but only if rated a ten
The blonds like to tease, the brunet’s like please
I’ll take either one with ease, as long as the curves please

Short tight clothes and panty hose
I like those when cleavage shows
Don’t ask why I’m just a guy
I won’t reply don’t even try
You have a nice personality
But keep that body away from me

Dark green eyes, light brown hair, a pretty face, I like to share
At the ass, at the boobs
I like the bitchy attitudes
I only like you if you’re hot
And I don’t, so your not
I don’t want to hurt your feelings, so I’ll use a voice real low
I just don’t like you because I’m shallow

Shallow heart, shallow mind
Even a shallow behind
It’s outrageous, it’s contagious
Someone save us, it’s too late
You can join us, bring your thong
The pink one it won’t be long
It’s not that I’m evil
I just like good-looking people
