From the album Hey Moon

Lyrics

Now this here’s a story bout the old Curst Sons
If you like us you’re the only ones
Cos folks don’t seem to understand
They want a mid-paced, easy-listening, rock covers band

Now we played at a high tone corporate do
An the suits went storming out two by two
They said your weird and your country and
We booked a mid-paced, easy-listening, rock covers band

We played a little wedding in a country town
We were ripping it up, they weren’t getting on down
The groom said this is not as planned
I want a mid-paced, easy-listening, rock covers band

How I’m here up on the old band stand
I got the mighty rhythm pole in my hand
But the landlord says we’ve just been banned
He wanted a mid-paced, easy-listening, middle of the road, rock covers band

We’ve played in the country and we’ve played in town
But all the big deals just turn us down
I think I might just throw in my hand
And start a mid-paced, easy-listening, middle of the road, tasteful, melodic,
progressive, rock covers band
