Change 02:09
I got a Jingle in my pocket and an aching heart Two pairs of boots and one guitar Few things out there left to find Never really was the searchin’ kind First time I saw you was like breakin glass You can’t unbreak it and it comes down fast Ever start a fire with too much gas And start running when you light the match I always thought things could stay the same Spent my last dollar and half my good name Might change it up maybe head out west It’s getting so change is all I have left Gets pretty lonely from time to time Listen to the neighbours on the party line I was talking to a guy said he sings the blues He was blowing that harp and I was thinkin’ bout you I’ll get a second hand suit and an old briefcase I could find some work and maybe keep this place Punch the clock and make the wheel go round Or I could meet you back in your home town

I was watching you watch me play A song that had you kind of a sway I wish we were dancing real slow If there was a prom for the scene I’d be king and you’d be queen And we could let everybody know I love her heart cause it’s as cold a mine No sleeves and bored looks all the time I love her heart cause it’s as cool a mine No sleeves and bored looks all the time This will last as long as she book my band At least three times a week . And now we think we run the show beards and beer and who was the know the others would follow us along? She sponges me from head to my toes I guess the emperor’s new clothes should be the name of this song I love her heart cause it’s as cold a mine No sleeves and bored looks all the time I love her heart cause it’s as cool a mine No sleeves and bored looks all the time This will last as long as she books my band At least three times a week

about

The debut album from punk rock party machines, Julius Sumner Miller, is a gratifyingly stripped-down and unabashed romp.

Named for the Hilarious House of Frightenstein’s famed Professor, Julius Sumner Miller deliver their music just as the Professor delivered physics lessons: defiantly, in double-time.

But while the Professor asks “Why is it so?” as a means of inciting curiosity, the band asks this question in celebration of the absurdity of their subject matter. From scenesters to sword fights, hardship to heart attacks, JSM pull no punches, declaring a war of wit on anyone in their path to party time.
