  1. When MTV Was Cool

From The Jeffs CD "The Day Tom Waits Died"

Lyrics

WHEN MTV WAS COOL

Momentary lapse of reason was in season hanging on the Sunset Strip.
Outside of the Whiskey, Carmen from Poughkeepsie was making quite a show of it.

Oh, I miss those LA days.
When hair was higher than the waves.
And MTV was cool.

Rodney on the Rock, and watching Iggy Pop, and dancing in the Purple Rain.
At the Continental, some were drinking Ketl, but most were high on Marvin Gaye.

Oh, I miss those LA days.
When hair was higher than the waves.
And MTV was cool.

BRIDGE
Martha Quinn.
Martha Quinn.
Where ya been, just wondering.

Walking on the Venice boardwalk with a flock of seagulls flying ‘round my head.
A fisher of souls stands on the corner reading from the Book of the Dead.
Some are making movies, some are making music, some are making TV shows.
Feeling like a big shot on the MGM lot, watch me put the rent up my nose.

Oh, I miss those LA days
When hair was higher than the waves
And MTV was cool

Oh, I miss those LA days.
When hair was higher than the waves.
And MTV was cool.
