Support your local ska band even tho they just may stink
Support them despite what the real musicians just might think
It's ok to lower standards in the name of a good cause
You can bend the rules for us this time and give us your applause

SYLSB
It means so much to me
SYLSB
It's tough to play for free
SYLSB
Why can't they see
It's hard to be a ska band
When you live in a lonely
Punk land

SYLSB
No I didn't say LSD
Throw away your PCP
And get the hell away from me
When everything should be OK
But it never ever seems to work out that way

SYLSB
It means so much to me
SYLSB
It's always tough to play for free
Why can't they see
It's hard to be
A lonely little ska band
When you live in Orange County
Punk land
OC
