Track Name: The House That We Grew Up In
I said, 'Oh'
She said, 'My head aches'
But she's still dancing to the music that my band plays

I said, 'Oh'
I watch her legs shake
And she was jumping up and down just like an earthquake

I said, 'Oh'
I watch her sweat drip
I saw her clap her hands and close her eyes and bite her bottom lip

I said, 'Oh'
I watch her dress rip
In the car behind the club for a quick fix

And, oh
I watch her drink spill
I saw her dance right back to the bar to get a refill

I said, 'Oh'
Pick up your teeth
And all the kids they were clappin' Mississippi

And, oh
We hit the mirror
And we scream a little louder so that everyone can hear; we said:

Oh, let the band play
I'm being broken up and ripped apart by X-rays
I said oh
They can't stop us
They can't stop us
They can't stop us now

I said, 'Oh'
In the back room
On the couch, I caught a whiff of your perfume

And, oh
See the crowd rage
It was a sea of nicotine-beaten teenage

And, oh
Full of heartbreak
We spent the New Year's Eve with the Champagne

And, oh
In the bathroom
Because my band was going on a little too soon

And, oh
I see stars
We spent the last four hours wastin' money in the bar

I said, 'Oh'
On the stage
Because the kids were going crazy to that Mississippi rain; I said:

Oh, let the band play
I'm being broken up and ripped apart by X-rays
I said oh
They can't stop us
They can't stop us

Oh, let the band play
I'm being broken up and ripped apart by X-rays
I said oh
They can't stop us
They can't stop us
They can't stop us now

Oh, let the band play
I'm being broken up and ripped apart by X-rays
I said oh
They can't stop us
They can't stop us
They can't stop us now
