Folksinger are Boring

©1984 Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Phoenix Envy

Nobody comes to the coffeehouse 
Nobody comes to the coffeehouse 
Nobody comes to the coffeehouse 
Folksingers are boring 

First they start some silly song 
Try to make you sing along 
Always drag it out too long 
Folksingers are boring 

First they sing a song about a train 
Then they sing a song about a train 
Then they sing a song about a train 
Folksingers are boring 

Folksingers have flabby buns 
They all play the same bass runs 
They're against the private ownership of handguns 
Folksingers are boring 

Folksinger are born to lose 
They wear old and ratty shoes 
Then they try to sing the blues 
Then they're really boring 

Give us salsa, give us soul 
Give us good old rock and roll 
Pass the bong and pass the bowl 
Folksingers are boring
