Songs The Musicians Are Singing About Themselves

Rock 'n' Roll Band



Well, we were just another band out of Boston
On the road and tryin' to make ends meet
Playin' all the bars, sleepin' in our cars
And we practiced right on out in the street
No, we didn't have much money
We barely made enough to survive
But when we got up on stage and got ready to play,

people came alive

Sweet Home Alabama

What's Your Name?

Lynyrd Skynyrd


Back at the hotel
Lord, we got such a mess
It seems that one of the crew
Had a go with one of the guests, oh yes
Well, the police said we can't drink at

the bar, what a shame
Won't you come upstairs girl
And have a drink of champagne

Nine o'clock the next day
And I'm ready to go
I got six hundred miles to ride
To do one more show, oh no
Can I get you a taxi home
It sure was grand
When I come back here next year
I want to see you again
What was your name, little girl?
What's your name?

Alive in the World (Jackson Browne)


"I want to live in the world, not inside my head
I want to live in the world, I want to stand and be counted
With the hopeful and the willing
With the open and the strong
With the voices in the darkness
Fashioning daylight out of song
And the millions of lovers
Alive in the world"

Nothing about Me (Sting)


"Run my name though your computer
Mention me in passing to your college tutor
Check my records check my facts
Check if I paid my income tax
Pore over everything in my C.V.
But you'll still know nothing 'bout me
You'll still know nothing 'bout me"
