Someone Else's Song

Well I can't tell you anything
You don't already know
I keep on trying
I should just let it go

I keep on singing
Your eyes, they just roll
It sounds like someone else's song
From a long time ago

You already know the story
And the chords are just the same
You already know I love you
And I sound like what's his name

But you can't stop me
I want you to know
I know it sounds like someone else's song
From a long time ago

Promising (Previously Unreleased)

Kingpin

I wanna be your kingpin
Living in Pekin

I wanna be your bigwig
Living in Pekin

I got the flu and away I flew
N.Y.C.P.D. blue
Dimatap and spinal tap
City maps and hand claps

Statue of Liberty play
It only works once
Don't throw it away

’Cause I wanna be your kingpin
Living in Pekin

Living in

Pekin
Living in

How can I
How can I give my love to you when
I don't know what to do

I Got You (At the End of the Century)

I got you and that's all I need
I got you and that's all I need
I got you and that's all I need
I got you

I got you and I still believe
That you are all I will ever need
It's you, oh

All the way back in the seventies
You were my little TV queen
Guitarzan and friend Janine
I got you

I got you and I still believe
That you are all I will ever need
It's you, oh

It's the end of the century
And I can't think of anything
Except you

It's the end of the century
And I can't think of anything
But you, oh

All, I, need

I got you
I got you
I got you

Don’t You Honey Me (Previously Unreleased)

Passenger Side

Hey, wake up
Your eyes weren't open wide
For the last couple of miles
You've been swerving from side to side
You're gonna make me spill my beer
If you don't learn how to steer

Passenger side
Passenger side
I don't like riding
On the passenger side

Roll another number for the road
You're the only sober person I know
Won't you let me make you a deal
Just get behind the wheel

Passenger side
Passenger side
I don't like riding
On the passenger side

Should've been the driver
Could've been the one
I should've been your lover
But I hadn't seen

Can you take me to the store, and then the bank?
I've got five dollars we can put in the tank
I've got a court date coming this June
I'll be driving soon

Passenger side
Passenger side
I don't like riding
On the passenger side
I don't like riding
On the passenger side

"Someone Else's Song" recorded 18 March 1997 on Marble Mountain, Newfoundland, Canada by Doug McClement for Much Music. Filmed on a ski slope during a layover on our way to France. Just Prior to this, Bob had failed to land an ill-advised jump, throwing himself off balance and into a snow bank an impressive six feet away. Our most famous performance.

"Promising" recorded at Easley Studios, Memphis, sometime in 1994. Engineered by Brian Paulson. Max Johnston getting the most from just a few notes.

"Kingpin" recorded 31 March 1997 for 2 Metre Sessions, VARA Radio, Netherlands. Engineered by Han Nuyten for Bullett Sound. This was our soundcheck for a radio/TV performance in Holland. Good enough for us, but apparently old Han had gotten up on the wrong side of the futon. Also of interest: Ken's playing rented drums with sticks fashioned our of Fig Newtons.

"I Got You" recorded 9 July 1997 at Lounge Ax, Chicago, live to DAT by Adam Jacobs. Affectionately known as the "Shakey's Pizza" version. Jay normally plays banjo here. Unfortunately, all tapes documenting this were pureed into a very flavorful ice cream topping at Bob's 40th birthday party.

"Don't You Honey Me" recorded at the Warzone, Chicago, in 1996. The only existing DAT of this was taped over with an episode of Clarissa Explains It All. Luckily, we found this rough mix on cassette being used to level a table at John's parent's house.

"Passenger Side" was recorded 10 May 1997 at the Fillmore, San Francisco. Live Mix by Adam Roehlke. An homage, if you will, to Defend The Keg, our favorite band. Or at least our favorite band name.

"The Lonely 1" (White Hen Version) recorded at Chicago Recording Company in 1996 by Chris Sheppard. The Background noise on this version was recorded with a portable Marantz tape deck during a walk for a pack of smokes in downtown Chicago. Cut randomly and pasted back together, we left this off Being There initially because Warner legal warned us that played backwards they could make out the home address of marketing exec. Jo Lenardi. She's since moved, freeing us to release it at last.
