lyrics

Back in the days of vocal gangs, city streets hummed a groovy new strain
Records spun a sweet honey taste, teenagers danced like fools with no shame

And the longer that we play this game, baby I just wanna be your #2
But at least I keep my pride astray, to dedicate my life to serving you

Right now the airwaves are soft as catchy clouds,
the AM waves are raining down on the streets for us to feast,
So in a hoopdee or a Model-T songs are sparking all over me,
‘Cause the speaker’s treasure spills out for free in the streets for us to feast on

Dusty stacks hold golden grain, treasure hides in grooves of old names
Dig in crates for the golden flame, just the doo wop chosen to play,
Back in the days chewing bubble gaze, city streets hummed a groovy new strain
Records spun a sweet honey taste, teenagers danced like fools with no shame

And the longer that we play this game, baby I just wanna be your #2
But at least I keep my pride astray, to dedicate my life to serving you

Right now the airwaves are soft as catchy clouds,
the AM waves are raining down on the streets for us to feast,
So in a hoopdee or a Model-T songs are sparking all over me,
‘Cause the speaker’s treasure spills out for free in the streets for us to feast on

about

Eston Raleigh, North Carolina

"I really enjoy hearing songs that have that peculiar twist, where there's a predicament the narrator's singing about," says the singer, "but they make it in a very carefree, happy way."
