Pavement – The Unseen Power Of The Picket Fence lyrics

Some bands I'd like to name check.
One of them is rem.
Classic songs with a long history,
Southern boys just like you and me, rem!

Flashbask to 1983, Chronic Town was their first ep.
Later on came Reckoning, Finster's art,
Titles [?] like South Central Rain,
Don't Go Back to Rockville, Harborcoat,
Pretty Persuassion, afford me a Camera.
Time after Time was my least favorite song.
Time after Time was my least favorite song!!

The singer he had long hair... Hair.
And the drummer he knew restraint.
And the bass man he had all the right moves,
And the guitar player was no saint.

So let's go way back, to an ancinet time,
When there were no 50 states.
And on a hill there stood, Sher-her-herman,
Sherman and his mates.
And they're marching thru Georgia!
They're marching thru Georgia!!
Marching thru Georgia!!
And there stand rem.
