Well we finished up the record
And we think that it's the shit
And we want it to go huge
But to play it off legit
And the guy in A&R's got the CD in his car
And he thinks track 4 and 6 are contenders
Put the play lists are so tight
That we gotta do it right
But he's getting a good feeling
So we're gonna take a meeting
With the radio promo
And the marketing homos
To see if we can get a green light
So we waited by the phone
And they finally let us know
That the label is quote
"Really excited"

This could be the big one
Time to celebrate perhaps
Our fate is in the hands of strangers
Going gold
Or down the hole
You can kiss my ass!

So we got a couple stations
We?re in medium rotation
But the P.D. isn't sure
If the single's gonna work
'Cause he's gotta play the cure
And the psychedelic furs
For the 80's flashback weekend
And our ad's are in the trades
And a video got made
And it cost a hundred grand
But we never got it played
And we're trying to hit the road
But the agent doesn't know
If there's enough in the budget for tour support
So we're playing local clubs
And we're trying to get a "buzz"
And we got a good review in "music connection"

This could be the big one
Time to celebrate perhaps
Our fate is in the hands of strangers
Going gold
Or down the hole
You can kiss my ass!

In a last ditch effort just to rally up the troops
We ignored our last statement
7 figures unrecouped
?Cause we're in it for the art
But we'd like to see if chart
In the billboard "top one thousand"
And we gave it our best shot
But the label says we're dropped
And the drummer quit the band
And he's working for his dad
So we're holding auditions

This could be the big one
Time to celebrate perhaps
Our fate is in the hands of strangers
Going gold
Or down the hole
You can kiss my ass!

This could be the big one
Time to celebrate perhaps
Our fate is in the hands of strangers
Going gold
Or down the hole
You can kiss my ass!
