lyrics

Non-profit volunteer band.
Non-profit volunteer band.
Non-profit volunteer band, please can we borrow your gear, band?
Please can we borrow your gear, band? Non-profit volunteers.

We’ll ride our bikes to the show, 'cuz we don’t know if we’re gonna get paid. We never get paid.
And we don’t wanna go home early because the bus stops at eleven thirty.
And we don’t wanna tip the taxi. And we don’t wanna go and crash the
car that you borrowed from your parents down the stairs. We’ve all been there.

Non-profit volunteer band.
Non-profit volunteer band.
Non-profit volunteer band, please won’t you play in my band?
Please won’t you play in my band? Non-profit volunteers.

With people who will get along. We could each choose one of our songs,
'cuz you’ll pick the old and I’d write some new. I’ll give you one for just one or two.
And I don’t know if I’m prepared to sing your songs, 'cuz that’d be weird.
But maybe we could tour together! I’ll play in your band! You play in my band!

Non-profit volunteer band.
Non-profit volunteer band.
Non-profit volunteer band, we don’t need a place to jam.
No, we don’t need no place to jam, we’re the non-profit volunteers!

'Cuz we just sing or sometimes hum. We don’t use amps and we don’t need drums.
We’ll DI all our guitars. It’ll sound like shit when we play in bars.
And when we’re at home, we’ll play into headphones, or even when we’re alone we’ll practice on the phone.
Or we could just whisper into your mind. It’s all just a dream. This band is a lie.

Non-profit volunteer band.
Non-profit volunteer band.
Non-profit volunteer band.
Non-profit volunteer band.
