Hellacopters – I'm In The Band lyrics

Friday night we got a gig in town
We're all reved up
We're gonna get it on down
They're playing our song on the radio
We're dressed for the occasion
And we're ready to go

Had a great pair of shoes
I thought I had class
A brand new jacket
But no backstage pass
Had to hurry up
To the stage I ran
And this big guy pushed me
Said, "No you can't"

Hey I'm in the band
Would it be so hard
For you to understand
That I got work to do
You better let me in man
'Cause I'm in the band

Paid our dues
On the long way here
The van broke down
But we don't give a care
The sun sets low
And it's about time
So don't you treat me
Like I commited a crime

Been here all day
To soundcheck and eat
There's no way in hell
That we didn't meet
There are rules to be followed
Yes I understand
You're doing your job
The best you can

But hey I'm in the band
Would it be so hard
For you to understand
That I got obligations
To my screaming female fans
'Cause I'm in the band

Yes I am
Do you understand
That I'm in the band...yeah

[Guitar Solo]

Now I may not look like Jagger
May not have money in the bank
I got a pair of cheap sunglasses
And my castle may be made of sand

But hey I'm in the band
And without me you'd
Have no girl to land
'Cause of me and my colleagues
You got wedding plans only
'Cause I'm in the band

Yes I'm in the band
Would it be so hard
For you to understand
That I got work to do
You better let me in man
Because I'm in the band

I'm in the band
Yes I'm in the band
Do you understand
That I'm in the band
Yeah!!!
