The Girl In The Band

lyrics

The girl in the band is off-limits.
She stays where you want her to be.
You can’t draw a crowd like the women,
So she draws in the women for me.
The girl in the band is off limits.
She’s forgotten her lines,
But that’s alright.
That’s alright.
The girls like your uninhibited niece,
She’s up to her waist in the reeds.
She chirps like a baby, assertive but weak.
You could listen to her and it’s as good as sleep.
Like your bombastic aunt, makes you crazy.
You can’t find the foreground at all.
Decorations in plastic and fake parasols,
She could sing the wallpaper up flat to the wall.
The girl in the band is off-limits.
She stays where you want her to stay.
You can’t draw a crowd like the women,
So she draws in the women today.
The girl in the band is off limits.
She’s forgotten her lines,
But that’s alright.
That’s alright.
The girl in the band, like your mother.
When you needed her just for yourself.
The distance is good for the lyrics,
But the nearness is bad for your health.
The girl in the band is off-limits.
She stays where you want her to be.
You can’t draw a crowd like the women,
So she draws in the women for me.
The girl in the band is off limits.
She’s forgotten her lines,
But that’s alright.
That’s alright.

Kick Ptarmigan, having recently devoured local greats the Spins, are set to record their third album this year. They play a unique hybrid of hair metal and doo-wop that sounds suspiciously like indie folk/rock.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
