sonnerie téléphone portable pour Crew nights

Tear it down in double quick time
To get the eighth truck shifted 'bout midnight
The locker rooms are empty but the (strobo tickers?)(strobe boats?)
Still spin with their pitching lights
And someone with a yellow pass
Gives out precise directions as to where and when

And here am i with a drumstick,
While young girls set to rendezvous, and be recognized again
Tomorrow is an off-day,
Be in baltimore by thursday is the only law.
There's a suite down at the hotel
Reserved for making merry with connecting doors.
The lighting man's already improvised a bar,
And printed invitations to the ball.
off duty cops line corridors wearing tull (two?) t-shirts proudly
On the band's (...) wall

crew nights, no flashlights or folding knives,
Best boots and road suits and nine lives.

Feeling that it might be wrong to
Temporarily belong to the p.a. man (men?)
Some angel from the midwest is regretting being

Undressed with no suntan
His polaroid is snapping
The head carpenter is rapping on
The gates of dawn

Sitting lonely with a warm beer
The girl with dental braces wishes that she hadn't gone.

Crew nights, no bar fights or readers' wives
Thin walls and late (blade?) calls and nine lives.

(ken stitzel writes: still no clue on the first line, but i think
``late calls'' is definitely correct for the second line. it makes
sense from a stagehand terminology perspective. i know that it
sounds like there's a ``b'' sound in there, but i think it's just a
minor flaw in ian's diction. (it's really tough to sing clearly,
especially in rock music.))

Crew nights, no flashlights or folding knives,
Best boots and road suits and nine lives.
