lyrics

Verse 1
I thought my hands were making moves
But the lands and the grooves
Unequivocally proved the truth
How did I get so confused?
My path, totally askew
Tapped the karma bank til I overdrew
Could have been so much more shrewd
With my moves and eschewed
The fast buck, the too good to be true revenues
Thought i was just payin’ dues
Next thing I know, interviewed
Now stuck in a life sentence queue
Raged up, caged up in a screw loose zoo
And all I view is bad news crews
Face tattooed, gunning for you

Chorus
Got lost, clowder, group of cats
Lost cause, louder, dogs in a pack
Yes boss, now sir, mischief of rats
Numbers matter, we’re all stats

Cat’s, dog’s
Cat’s, dog’s, and rats
Cat’s, dog’s
Cat’s, dog’s, and rats

Verse 2
Just pining, second chance at the life I blew
Just whining, about the permanent concrete view
Resigning, dad times were far and few

My kid grew up, “no pops” tattoo
Weight, can’t pay back I O U
Daily praying, life was peek a boos
Story time with Winnie the pooh
Right through to a, big debut
For you, but I don’t a thing about you
Nothing about you
Could be livin’ like your old man
Testin the avenue
But I don’t have a fucking clue
I don’t have a fucking clue

Chorus
Got lost, clowder, group of cats
Lost cause, louder, dogs in a pack
Yes boss, now sir, mischief of rats
Numbers matter, we’re all stats

Cat’s, dog’s
Cat’s, dog’s, and rats

Cat’s, dog’s
Cat’s, dog’s, and rats

Cat’s, dog’s
Cat’s, dog’s, and rats

Cat’s, dog’s
Cat’s, dog’s, and rats

about

Rare Americans Vancouver, British Columbia

Not crooked in the sense we’re criminals, in fact we barely have a speeding ticket between us. Crooked in the sense that we see the world a little crooked, we tell stories with slants. We sing for characters who rarely take the straight path.
