about

Big D and the Kids Table Boston, Massachusetts

Big D and the Kids Table front man David McWane has said, "There are people who want to be in a band and then there are musicians." Once in a while a group comes along that makes music simply because they have no other choice - they are addicted musicians. McWane describes the group as - "Modern American gypsies."

Now coming upon their 17th year, Big D has released 2 records: 'Stomp' & 'Stroll'.

Track Name: Doped Up Dollies On A One Way Ticket To Blood
Boom goes the dynamite, dynamite, dynamite,
Boom goes the dynamite, dynamite, boom!

Dum dada dum

Doped up dollies on a one way ticket to blood, ticket to blood
Switch her on, turn her key, then sit back and watch her have fun
She said the night ain’t over till someone tells me to calm down, sit down, sit down, calm down
Doped down dollies on a way ticket to blood, ticket to blood
Yeah.

8-6-5 baby study the rhyme, Dancing in the street all loopy and blind
2-3-9 my little partner in crime, Didn't study for the test and it's past bedtime
8-6-5 baby study the rhyme, Feeling like we're moving through water tonight
2-3-9 it's a victimless crime, just digging on the feeling of feeling sublime


A crime with the Missus, fuses lit by her light,
See my mujer impressionate is known to dance with
sleepy feline eyes. 'Cause she's a long cat, a sly cat,
Not someone going your way
She's quite a little ninja, my tough little ninja, my tough little ninja,
Me entiendes hombre!


8-6-5 baby study the rhyme, Dancing in the street all loopy and blind
2-3-9 my little partner in crime, Didn't study for the test and it's past bedtime
8-6-5 baby study the rhyme, Feeling like we're moving through water tonight
2-3-9 it's a victimless crime, just digging on the feeling of feeling sublime

I'm Mary Mack
I'm dressed in black
I got silver buttons
All down my back
I picked the lock
With my black hair pin
So me and my man
Can sneak right in

I cracked the safe
dialed 8-6-5
Escaped on elephants
In the middle of the night
Jumped over the fence
We got so high
And didn't come back
Till we touched the sky

It's just a clean sneak
enter through the back door
the maid walks you through
lead your lady to the dance floor
she may review, push, stumble back
spin, baby spin,
feelin' re-re-re-re-re relaxed.


drink after drink, and track after track
you can’t beat a night with her
lookin' like that
connect the wires, illuminate the city
Feelin' 110 when out with the ladies

8-6-5 baby study the rhyme, Dancing in the street all loopy and blind
2-3-9 my little partner in crime, Didn't study for the test and it's past bedtime
8-6-5 baby study the rhyme, Feeling like we're moving through water tonight
2-3-9 it's a victimless crime, just digging on the feeling of feeling sublime


Doped up dollies on a one way ticket to blood, ticket to blood x2

She said the night aint over till someone tells me to calm down, sit down, sit down, calm down
Doped down dollies on a way ticket to blood, ticket to blood
Yeah.

Boom goes the dynamite, dynamite, dynamite,
Boom goes the dynamite, dynamite, boom! x4
Track Name: Describing The Sky
Two kids excited when they hit the pavement
You know the sight of us, the two most complacent
Oh my God is this the world?
How will we keep ourselves young?
How will we keep our souls pure?

We'll have to step back, be steady, and check out the new scenery
Deduct what we are seeing and trust each others opinion

Gotta push back the people who try and sour reality
There's so many bitter, we'll have to be believers

Stand tall
We both look them in the eye
We're trying not to laugh just yet
I think we'll both do fine

Now we're laying after a perfect day
as we fade away, what a world we'll make

Well I'm forever your fighting partner
Yah, I can hold you above them for days
You see, my arms are strong and I'm focused
We're in store for better days
Oh no, I don't need to see
Just tell me what it looks like above the clouds
Describe the sky to me, just describe the sky to me

While we're laying after a perfect day,
as we fade away, what a world we've made

I told her, "Relax, there's no need to be shy
Go ahead and laugh too loud, my friends think you're divine
Feel safe and alive, come look at the sky
Tonight you look so nice"
Tonight we'll be...

We both stand tall
We always look them in the eye
We're always laughing out too loud
Us two are doing quite fine
Two kids shaping their lives
Yes we will survive
Yes we will survive
Track Name: Not Fucking Around
Okay, I'll answer for real
If I found myself stranded on an island with 6 million girls,
well, I'd put them all to work
We'd build a kickass sailboat to get me back to you
See, I'm not fucking around

I just love how you come up with these
You're saying if I was drunk and away on tour
and if we were in a ooh big fight
and then some loosey twit started flirting with me
Well, even drunk and bummed out I'd say you best move on girl,
I don't mess around

No!

Whoah-oh-oh-oh
Yah-yah-yah-yah

So do you have it straight? If not keep on asking
The bar's open late and I don't mind
Until you finally see, with you, I won't be fucking around
Sure, we'll have two more drinks, and just a bit closer
Hit me with another of your silly questions
When the sun comes up, you'll see I won't be fucking around

If my friends from school days brought me to a strip club,
bought me some of those lap dances, say what would I do then?
Well, I'd have to point to Mikey, see he don't have too much luck with the ladies
Tell the girls "There, that's me,"
then I'll call you up so we can razz it around

What if you high school girlfriend showed up while I was away?
Well, I'd go under the sink
and grab some insect repellent and spray that girl away!

Yeah, I'll stop my stealing
I'll stop my fighting
I'll change my dirty ways
For you just you yeah
I'm damn well smart (and I know what I got)
and I won't be fucking around
So are you feeling good?
Do you know I'm yours?
Raise up that head and those cute shoulders
Let's head on home
I'll never be fucking around
Track Name: A Kiss A Week
So what the hell you mean that ain't no way to meet a girl?
We invented booze and bars to relax us in this world
You sit all jacked on coffee waiting for fate to enter scene, or what,
is it better being a creep, shopping for women on a screen?
You got all these theories man, on how to meet a mate
while all these women got theories on how to keep you away
I'm saying, you act so taxed, relax, don't be wound up so tight, tonight

She goes, I like your stupid shirt, what's it say "riot"?
Never have I met a girl so nice and polite, do you mind
if I catch you later though, see that there's my ride
and if you hit up Bukowski's, I'll see you later tonight

A little liquor helps us pave the way to romance,
gets you both on your way
and it all started with a kiss a week
Yes it starts with a kiss a week

Why you always point me out and say "He's booty calling!"
Last time I checked you ain't no hip-hop kid, you bawler
You're a borderline Yah-dude who should down his chick-drink quick
Wanna meet up with her stat, before the booze trump out my logic

And every morning we'd be both quiet
Both with headache, that don't feel very nice
Quickly we'd escape each other, yes, yes, fun, fun, see you later
Daylight's for recovery, walking home is a misery

She said,
"It's simple shit, we're bad but it's fun
It's simple shit, to be too good is just dumb"
Both staying up so late at night
Hell let's try this in the light
"Cause if we keep coming back
The chemistry must be on track

Eventually we'd both stick around
Pounding coffee and joking around
Soon we'd call each other before we went out
But we know how it started, yes we know how it started with

A little liquor helps us prove the way to romance,
got us both on our way
Track Name: Been Wishing On
Been wishing on, Been holding on
Been waiting for you girl, Oh no am I too late?

We didn't know we were in love
Is it too late?
'Cause now we know

I remember when we used to stay up so late, yeah
I remember when we used to complain about love
I didn't know it then, I couldn't see it then
But how I know you now, yes
How clear I see you now, See you now

Blind yeah blind, how silly we've been, so
Blind yeah blind, how silly we've been

Too young to see how we connect
Too young to see we're two best friends
Too young to be brave enough to lay by you I'll forever stand

Been wishing on, Been holding on
Been waiting for you boy, Oh no you're not too late

I remember when you broke up with the boy from Gipsy Hill, yeah
I remember how terribly ill you felt
I held you then, Told you, yes you'd find a man
Now I am desperately trying just to be that man,
Be your man

Wait
Don't wait

Now I have traveled the world around
But by your side is the only home I've found
I see and truly need to feel your strength in the world of beauty
Now would you ever come search for me
Could we refresh our love's longevity?
It's our endless story
Track Name: Fluent In Stroll
Chin-chin, chadda-wadda-wa hey

Finding love in other nations
Sunshine girls with late romancing
Steering through life like the last real caption
Feeling good's a simple combination

Tick, it's time now
Boom!

"You drink too much"-That's what my mother screams at me
"You look too rough"-My sisters are always naggin' me
"He don't try enough"-Teachers holler at me
But than I tune that all right out, Pop always said "You go live free"

So what's wrong ya'll?
Nothing at all!
Does the rest of the world know there's no stopping us all?

Play the music louder
Dance a little smoother
Stoke the fire bigger
And let's love a little longer

Go BIG D, Baby

Winks from girls in other nations
Brought me to her favorite place then
Found shadows to share secrets in
Two free souls who got a lot in common
Track Name: Down Around Here
You gotta live where it feels right
Right in the full sense it's all about sight
Sight of the city sight of your friends
Friends complement the city to a nice blend
Yeah!

Down around here We go and Keep things nice
We sweep out those who take interest in a fight
Down around here The music plays an uppity beat
Than a trumpet plays a saxophone plays It's nice
Basement windows boom out the sounds
Of beats where our women love to be spun around
'Round here people got their art on check
Well have you be a poet painter or just give respect

Keep Listenin'

Down around here We read what Bukowski wrote
Down 'round here We think ska music is dope
We crowd the stereo We pass the smoke slow
We pull our women closer for our love for them to show

Society we've analyzed
Humanity we've terrorized
Philosophy we've memorized

There's no way No way
I'm doing anything The way the city feels today

It's getting hot Getting hot outside
Bust out the fan baby Everything feels nice

Down around here positive minds meet
Plotting dreams into plans that manifest into beats
Well here you got a problem speak it coolly and calmly
'Cause we're supporting those with evolved mentalities
Boston here fluent in Stroll
The people's confidence is full in control

You'll find me at 42 longitude 71 latitude
Only European-style city in the U.S. man
It's arguable

Jamaica Plain, Mission Hill my worn out sneaks
Just hanging out on rooftops un-caged and free

Down around here One mic is a studio
Visions and talent glow Minds and music grow

Labeling we've downsized Music we re-stylized
Self expression's never compromised
Track Name: Chin Up, Boy!
Well it's alright
Well it's okay
There's someone out there
Waiting for you, just waiting to meet you

The boy was never the crazy one, you know the one to
talk first, so it must have been a moment of just pure
inspiration, He said, "Yeah you know the girl, the one with
those long crazy curls? Well I'm gonna ask her out man,
that's right, I'm gonna take her around the world"
Maybe it was his soft voice
Maybe it was just his lean
Maybe it was the way his lip curled
when she'd really made him think
Maybe it was just those brown eyes
Guess we'll never really know, But she said
"Sure that sounds nice, what time would you like to go?"

They walked about the gardens, you know, the pond,
near the swan boats, He picked a blue flower and he
told her a couple jokes, But when it came time for
dancing, the hall's price was just too big, He stuttered,
kicked some dirt, he had to think of something quick
So he just twirled her outside the window, With a delicate
embrace, And just about everyone inside watched them
dance, with moonlight on their face

Time
It takes time
Time
To find the one you love

Both had curfews, both were missed, He told her a little
secret, Which earned him a little kiss, it was strange in a
familiar way, familiar in a strange way, When the sun
finally came up, they were just laying, counting the waves
Track Name: Where Did All The Women Go?
You know Miss you were damn hard to find,
But by far it was worth all the wait and the time
Tell me, do you believe that you and me are
gonna make it yeah?

You know Miss you were damn hard to find
What with all these other women wasting my time
I looked in the clubs, And the bars every night
I looked in the streets,
But it was you that I could never find

So tell me
Where did all the women go?
'Cause since that I have found you
Oh you're the only one I see
That I see / For me

Now when it rains
We grab a bottle of wine
Roll her pant legs up
Splash around and unwind
Collect the rain in our hands
No umbrella that's fine
Having a kickass day
Fun don't always come with sunshine

You know Miss you were damn hard to find
I like how even in the damn rain you shine
Tell me, do you believe that you and me are
gonna make it yeah?

Warmly dining, they gaze at us
Outside dancing, wet and careless
Two fools splashing around dumb luck
While the thunder rumbles above
Unabashed, reckless and rude
We'll always be just a couple of loons
Everyone's looking past menus
Of me completely drenched in you
Track Name: Known To Be Blue
Washed away sunshine
Two tables for two
Known for a laugh but
Known to be blue
Call it a mishap
It's sad, but it's true
Looks like I'll never stop
Loving you
Track Name: I,I,I,
Rope's been cut
Sailing away
No more raining on our sunny days

They're way too bossy and downright mean
I won't let them toss scary thoughts in your dreams
How could they think what was wrong was right
They're always coming at us looking for a fight
We wanna live in peace
And they're loving their war
But you know me, shit you know me

I,I,I,I,I,I,I,I say we ditch them baby
I,I,I-I,I,I say those kids are losers baby

Sad souls
Double-dumb
Hate it when they 'shh, shh'
You so alive
Triple fly / Crazy fly
Make me feel so good.

I,I,I - I,I,I say we're what's important baby.

So what can I sing to you that I don't
whisper to you every night?
I found that beat that keeps you
moving all night, that God.

I know yeah, I know yeah
To look through my eyes it must be tough
But, gaze in that mirror girl
'Cause that's the only thing I love

Line them up, line them up
Say the word
I'll push 'em around for you
I don't care if it's a dragon-spider,
I'll knock any monsters down for you

Show me, show me a better girl.
No you're never gonna, never, never gonna find it.
Show me, show me a better world,
Without you baby, I don't, I don't, I don't want it.

What can I sing to her that I don't
whisper to her every night?
I'm gonna make sure that little girl inside her can shine.

I sure do wish that we all could be friendly
I sure do wish that we could get along

But we are so we'll keep pressing on

Sneak a little
Steal a little
Spit a little
Then we're gone

Yeah, I'm gone
Track Name: We Can Live Anywhere
