lyrics

Everyday - up at eleven
Everyday - crawl out of bed
And check the messages to see if anyone cares

Everyday - beer and a light lunch
Everyday - radio buzzing
Dimly I can hear the ghost of ‘79.

Think of showing up for work
Go to bed instead

Feet would be steppin’
Knees would be bending
Hands would be pointing
Hips would be shaking
Hearts would be breaking, but it’s…

Too late for disco
It’s never coming back again
Am I just a man without a God?
Too late for disco
I’m never havin’ fun again
Once I was “fantastic”, now I’m “odd”

Everyday - browse through the porno
Everyday - once I could score, though
No one had a camera on that magical night

Ride the stationary bike
Back in time

Back to the nightclub
It was exclusive
I was good lookin’
I was the future
Whatever happened?
Now it’s..

Too late for disco
It’s never coming back again
Like a lost and lonely butterfly
Too late for disco
I’m never havin’ fun again
And I will wear this frown until I die.

Recall a girl from long ago
Did she like me?

Look in the mirror
Pose like a rock star
Pose like a salesman
It isn’t fair they had to make me a salesman

Now it’s too late for disco
I’m never havin’ fun again
When all that I was dancing for is gone
Too late for disco
It’s never coming back again
But I go on and on and on and on

And it hurts more and more
Everyday.

about

The Shut-Ups Atlanta, Georgia

We're a five-piece new-wave power-pop band from Atlanta and Athens, GA and practice daily at 6AM. We do more before 8AM than most bands do all week.

We're not about Pleasure or Fun. You may enjoy listening to us. You may not. You may pretend to enjoy us because others you respect seem to. They may be pretending, too. In which case you may want to consider what else they're pretending about.
