The Lyrics

My father is an engineer and knows a song or two
My mother likes to sing along, she's actu-ally good
We're quite a music family, my brother plays guitar
He always took it with him when we sailed near or far
And evenings in the islands, they were spent on sing-along
When I grew up I he taught me play, accompany a song
Now nice girls play piano, but I had other plans:
I wanted to play rock and roll and bass in four girl band!

I went to study in HUT and four-string I had bought
I met there with three other gals who company had sought
We set soon up a rocking band and wanted to have fun
We practised in the evenings and all weekends too were done
We studied hard and play-ed hard and shared our hearts and minds
I learned to write the poetry and lyrics I designed
We played at students' parties, we played rock songs of this land -
I got my chance in rock and roll and bass in four girl band!

Now college is supposed to be the best years of your life
I studied, I played D&D and I learned how to fly
But when the day was over, I put that Squier on my hand
(and) You found me at the basement playing bass in four girl band!

Now years passed by, I graduated, got myself a man
We girls too parted our ways, we moved across the land
I got me job, I got career and children of my own
I love the sea and music and I like to write a song
and one day I found Am-I-Right and writing parodies
It's that the way I keep my love on words and melodies
Now how about my daughter? Maybe she has her own plans -
She will be playing rock and roll and bass in four girl band!

I always liked the Albert Hammond "Free Electric Band". Last played on Kansas City radio in April of 1975. Deserves to be better known. Check out my "Wee Electric Van". Sounds like you had a good time with your music growing up. Hope your daughter can have the same experiences.

I don't know who plays the bass, but they're all girls, from Finland, and this is one of my top fifty songs for jogging/running:

Patrick, I agree. The original song has a lovely, catchy tune and it is sadly under-appreciated. I love it.

As John. A cute little autobiographical sketch. Your daughter's lucky to have a mum who understands. Speaking of female bassists, are you aware of young Sydney-born Tal Winkenfeld, who knocked 'em dead when she toured with Jeff Beck, especially the way she'd sling one boob over the edge of the guitar body. Um, she could play too.
