Heard of a van that is loaded with weapons packed up and ready to go Heard of some gravesites, out by the highway a place where nobody knows The sound of gunfire, off in the distance, I'm getting used to it now Lived in a brownstone, lived in the ghetto, I've lived all over this town This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around No time for dancing, or lovey dovey, I ain't got time for that now Transmit the message, to the receiver, hope for an answer some day I got three passports, couple of visas, don't even know my real name High on a hillside, trucks are loading, everything's ready to roll I sleep in the daytime, I work in the nightime, I might not ever get home This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around This ain't no mudd club, or C B G B, I ain't got time for that now This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around No time for dancing, or lovey dovey, I ain't got time for that now Heard about Roseburg? San Bernadino? You hear about Kalamazoo? You oughta know not to stand by the window, someone might see you it’s true I’m not sure how… this became common… i’m not sure what to say But I ain't got no speakers, ain't got no headphones, ain't got no records to play Why stay in college? why go to night school? gonna be different this time? Can't write a letter, can't send a postcard, I can't write nothing at all This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no fooling around I'd love you hold you, I'd like to kiss you, I ain't got no time for that now Trouble in transit, got through the roadblock, we blended in with the crowd We got computers, we're tapping phone lines, I know that ain't allowed We dress like students, we dress like housewives, or in a suit and a tie I changed my hairstyle so many times now, don't know what I look like! You make me shiver, I feel so tender, we make a pretty good team Don't get exhausted, I'll do some driving, you ought to get you some sleep Burned all my notebooks, what good are notebooks?, They won't help me survive My chest is aching, burns like a furnace, the burning keeps me alive

about

PRF Monthly Tribute Series Chicago, Illinois

Here's the scoop: A band is picked at the start of the month. Musicians have the full month to record songs by that band, or about that band, or in the style of the band - it's real loose! At the end of the month, we vote for our top three recordings. The winning entry selects the next month's band. Good times and killer recordings since 2014! ... more
