WHERE IT'S AT Sign in or register

 
There's a destination a little up the road
From the habitations and the towns we know
A place we saw the lights turn low
The jigsaw jazz and the get-fresh flow
Pulling out jives and jamboree handouts
Two turntables and a microphone
Bottles and cans
And just clap your hands
And just clap your hands

Take me home in my elevator bones
That was a good drum break

Pick yourself up off the side of the road
With your elevator bones and your whipflash tones
Members only
Hypnotizers move through the room like ambulance drivers
Shine your shoes with your microphone blues
Hirsutes with your parachute fruits
Passing the dutchie from coast to coast
Let the man Gary Wilson rock the most

Where it's at
I got two turntables and a microphone

There's a destination a little up the road
From the habitations and the towns we know

Jigsaw jazz and the get-fresh flow

Alright I think uhh I think it's a good time to us all to get acquaited real quick. With all these gentlemen on the stage here with me. We got Showboat on the bass right now. People give that up. My man Hound Dog is rocking the keyboards and the tablas. And uhh right over here on the horns we got the brass menagerie. The two Daves. And over here on the drums we got Stagecoach pulling the reins. Alright and uhh cutting up two turntables over here we got DJ Swamp. And on the electric guitar right here we got my man Smokestack making it lonesome. And uhh I myself am the artist currently known as Beck. This is my symbol. A pinky. The tenderest finger of all.

Alright so I'd like to uhh invite you all to participate in attempting something right now. A transformation. A metamorphasis. Turning this town called Dallas into something called Make Out City. Can you all do that with me? I said can you all do that with me? I wanna visualise a place a little up the road called Make Out City. Two turntables and a microphone. Yeah. Come on. It's now time to get the orgy into high gear. Everybody. Bottles and cans and just clap your hands. All the robot freaks represent. Come on.
