"Joe’s Blues"

[Intro]
We're gon' slip on the dark shades for you this time
Give you some of Joe's blues
Uh-huh

[Verse 1]
You can't groove on dope, you can't groove on the wine
If you're tryin' to catch a groove watchin' TV, man, you are wasting time
Well you can do what you want, you won't get far
You know the only way to groove is on a bass guitar

[Verse 2]
You find a loose little rhythm, then you lock in tight
Yes you roll on it over and over 'til it sounds just exactly right
You could learn to sing lead if you need to be a star
But the only way to groove is on a bass guitar

[Chorus]
I said, it fills out the bottom dirty and mean
It's downright greasy when the soundman's clean
You know the eyes in the room, they all lookin' at the star
The butts are all shakin' to the bass guitar, mmhmm

[Verse 3]
You could dress real cool, wear dark shades
You might be sleek, sharp, and shiny just like a razor blade
You drive around town in a long black car
But the only way to groove is on the bass guitar

[Chorus]
You know it fills out the bottom dirty and mean
It's downright grunge when the soundguy's clean
You know the eyes in the room, they all lookin' at the star
The butts are all shakin' to the bass guitar
Play it for me one time, my brother

[Bridge]
You know my friend, the good doctor Joe [Marincek?] brought me this song
He told me it was the perfect country and western song
I told him it was not the perfect country and western song
'Cause it didn't mention mama, it didn't mention trucks, hell it didn't even have a country beat
It's more of kind of a jazz thing and it's about bass
I don't know what he's talkin' about
Check him out though, he's good
Joe, do somethin'!

[Outro]
Yes, you can do what you want
Do what you want
