Lyrics

Same Old Dave

Written By: Brent Kelly

Same Old Dave

Man, I need a break. I think I’ll take a trip back to the days when
Tables turned at 33 and 1/3.
So slip the needle back into the groove.
Yeah we’ll “Dance the night away” like Van Halen sang.
Oh, he’s the Same Old Dave

Man turn it up. It’s not loud enough.
I’ll pick up my strat. And you, your Les Paul
Yeah we thought we had it all. Well, we had it all.
We had Purple Haze and we knew that wouldn’t change.
You can’t change the Same Old Dave

We would dream about it
What if I could play like Randy Rhoads
And you knew what was in store
But we can’t ignore the things the Oz stood for

Head to the beach. The summer’s not out of reach.
The headbangers say, “Man we’re okay!
We just need someone to play a little Ronnie James”
Yeah, it made us so brave. I guess we can say our souls were saved.
By Same Old Dave

We would dream about it
What if I could play like Angus Young
And you knew what was in store
But we can’t ignore the things the Oz stood for

We were so cool the day we figured out “Fade to Black”
We had esteem even when no one gave us slack
So turn the needle back. Damn the laser track. We won’t look back.

Yeah, well, it saved our souls when we pushed ourselves to the front rows.
We were the “Rock Brigade” with Judas Priest and Iron Maiden.
Now if the sun don’t shine I just rewind
And play the old songs that make me feel alive

Same Old Dave
I remember when we were so “Unchained”
Yeah, my record player still haunts my favorite song and I’m not wrong
I’m strong. Yeah, I long for the Same Old Dave.
