Drew Blackard – Right About Now I'd Like To Move To Austin And Buy A Purple House lyrics

I& apos; d like to move on down to Austin town

Buy a purple house let the weeds grow out

Livin on my own with my garden gnomes

They& apos; d protect my home with their devil bones

I& apos; d put a hydrant in to wash away the sin

Of all my friends and we& apos; d bathe in it

Cause just like any song it& apos; s best to sing along

Get the words all wrong with your lighter on

There& apos; d be a rock n& apos; roll band that was takin& apos; a stand

And I& apos; d give & apos; em a hand yeah a rock n& apos; roll band

And there& apos; s a fountain pin with words within

I& apos; d empty it yeah I& apos; d bleed it to death

And there& apos; s a club downtown where the sign& apos; s ripped down

But they draw a crowd cause the music& apos; s loud

And we& apos; d book a show turn our amps down low

Cut the microphones so you& apos; d listen close

And there& apos; s a scene I bet not written yet

Where we& apos; re lyin& apos; in bed and we count to ten

Then we talk real free existentially

And we wouldn& apos; t breathe cause there& apos; d be no need

And fall would come to protect us from

The water guns and the summer sun

Yeah life would be a symphony

Of barking bees and falling trees

Some folks find that a life of crime

Is due to too much time in an empty mine

Well I disagree I find it hard to see

The hypocrisy of you and me

And there& apos; s a reason why that we& apos; ll never find

The other side

So I& apos; ll move on down to Austin town buy a purple house, let the weeds grow out
