*5/19 mix © L Saklad *'my version of The Byrds' "So you wanna be a Rock & Roll Star" - describes the process of songwriting & subsequent putting together the band, learning to play in the "pocket", & "plugging" it all- "the bitch", into the music machine "socket". Admittedly, it sure sounds like an abusive relationship, but no, all "Metaphor"ical!

Gathering grooves & musical moves
Each in it's own lil pocket
finding the words
catch the tail of the bird
Spice the stew, so fresh & new
& plug the bitch into the socket,

[chor] Fire up the rocket
(Just) stay in your pocket,
& be sure to lock it, lock it

Gathering tunes & musician loons
Denying all those who'd knock it
Yeh, so many bands
ever shifting sands
T' have a sick brand & I think I can
Plug the bitch into the socket... [chor]

Gathering friends & family mems
bursting the seams of my pockets
So many smiles
best times & trials
Just like these songs we can all get along
Plug this wish into the socket... [chor]
