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: Steady Riot
Lower Allston Rising

The music's made on Boston's dejected streets
In polluted rooms and sweat dripping ceilings
We come together, defiance on the road
But the freeway can be brutal with no dosh or a home yeah

Music, a steady riot in my soul

My buddy Johnny, he can never get up
But it's him who should be admired
Not those fame driven shmucks
Works at a bar, gives me pints and free eats
I swear, Johnny alone feeds the Allston music scene

And then there's Sudz, yeah he can get bummed
After a long night of drinking in that rude riot fun
But it's easy to get down when you view life as a stray
But my man he brings me up
I should tell him one of these days

Music, a steady riot in my soul
Always in me

Just walking back from Central Square
Thinking about what I heard this smart guy share
S'like there's a time to drink and to dream
Then create and complete
My life, resistant words, a good riff and a beat

A steady riot
Track Name: Noise Complaint
Sixty feet stomping (Noise Complaint!)
The souped-up vinyl spinning (Noise Complaint!)
Laughing is a reason (Noise Complaint!)
We're all spaz cap drinking (Noise Complaint!)

Well it's a sure shot, we can't be stopped
Twenty bucks says there's a noise complaint

Tearing down the curtains (Noise Complaint!)
We're just blowing out the speakers (Noise Complaint!)
You know the neighbors pound the floorboards (Noise Complaint!)
Yeah, this party ain't no secret (Noise Complaint!)

Well it's a sure shot, we can't be stopped
Yeah alright yeah there's a noise complaint, Oi!

Alley dog howling (Noise Complaint!)
We're all lighting up the tilt sign (Noise Complaint!)
It's just mad street rocking (Noise Complaint!)
Did you see those little skirts flipping (Noise Complaint!)

Well it's a sure shot, we can't be stopped
We're a crazy infestation of the truly un-cool

Police rack the front door (Noise Complaint!)
Then all them girls hit the closet (Noise Complaint!)
You know I'm underneath the bed now (Noise Complaint!)
It's just a chance for naughty smooching (Noise Complaint!)

Well it's a sure shot, we can't be stopped
We're sorry officer 'bout the noise complaint

Frigging in the rigging (Noise Complaint!)
Yeah there's smoggin' in my noggin' (Noise Complaint!)
We're all playing back seat bingo (Noise Complaint!)
Are you hip to my lingo (Noise Complaint!)

Well it's a sure shot, we can't be stopped
Back it up kid there's a noise complaint, Oi!

The record needle's dulling (Noise Complaint!)
All the ivy leaguers screaming (Noise Complaint!)
We're all posing for a picture (Noise Complaint!)
And just flip, dip, spinning (Noise Complaint!)

It's a sure shot, we can't be stopped
They play my song it goes, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Shy girls winking (Noise Complaint!)
And the good girls kissing (Noise Complaint!)
You see those rude girls spitting (Noise Complaint!)
And all them doped up dolls giggling (Noise Complaint!)

Well it's a sure shot, we can't be stopped
I like your neighbor, but your neighbor don't like me
Track Name: Shining On
I just realized I left my favorite hat in the club last night
Which ticks me right off 'cause I
Had that cap since I was real-real small
Then find out just right now
That my main squeeze went through my phone
0ooo
So I guess I'm single now
Imagine that

So I sneak right on The T
The conductor sees me
He's kicking me right off with a frown
I grab my bag and I walk on
Comm. Ave., I hit up Blanchard's
They sell cheap wine, I got six bucks
Bag rips, wine smash
Drink it up avoid the glass

But I can't help from just smiling
When that damn sun is shinning on
Hell, It's just
Shinning down all over me
No, I can't help but just smile
While that damn sun is shining on
Dang it's just shining down
Down over me

So now I call up my friend
'Cause his girl must be bored, see
She's been spreading rumors about me
That I robbed her party, but I never had
I pull out my little disc man
I bought from a crackhead down in Reno
But my Melt-Banana Cd
Is all scratched up

I think it's stupid all the people who are moaning
Yeah moaning on
While the sun is shining down
On our city streets
Even all the things people say
Naw, ain't affecting me
Not when that damn sun
Is shining down over me

Shining down on me
Born to just never care
About the stupid things
People moan everyday

So later on I meet Johnny Trouble
At a bar called Shay's, a spit from Charlie's
We sit outside talking about girls
How they're loons but we like them anyway
No money for pints at the bar
We bring a backpack full of Pabst
0ooo
Under the table we fill our glass

So me and Johnny just sit outside
Warmed by that summer night
While those city stars are shining
Down on our streets
And I just can't help from smiling
While those damn stars are shining down
Yeah those stars are shining
Over our city streets

No, I won't be caught moaning
Not when light is still shining down
And me and Johnny
Warmed by that damn summer heat
And I can't stop from just smiling
When those damn stars are shining on
Yeah, those stars are shining
Over our city streets

Can you imagine that?
Track Name: Souped-Up Vinyl
I clock about twelve hours a day at this damn place.
Drag myself in, it's a quarter to eight.
God, sweep it up, set it up, open the place up.
Deal with idiots to make a lousy forty bucks.
I walk my miles home in Boston's damn ass cold.
And when I think nothing's for nothing,
When I think this is all I got,
I try to remember, try, try to remember, yeah.

I know, I know, I'm steady, yeah.
Just keep looking past it, well...
We'll be alright, yeah,
We're lucky 'cause everyone is off tonight.
Push up, push up, it's alright now.
My time's now mine
And I'll spend it, yeah.
See, when I get home,
I'll be fine because...
Our time's now ours, yeah, and we spend it with the...

(Souped-up, souped-up, souped-up, souped-up, souped-up)
Souped-up vinyl spinning round and round.

Souped-up vinyl spinning round and round.
(Souped-up, souped-up, souped-up, souped-up, souped-up)
Souped-up vinyl spinning...

The thing that bugs me is I'm running this God damned ship.
My boss is clueless and the manager's a piece of shit.
Come in when they say, but then I stay longer than they said.
If I work one more day, end of the week, then I'll be dead.
Monday the twenty-third, man you saw me write it down.
You don't give me the day off, then I swear I'm fucking out.
You believe they'd even pull this as long as I've been here?
Yeah, sorry Todd. I've been drinking, you're right. I'll end it there.

I know, I know, I'm steady, yeah.
Just keep looking past it, well...
We'll be alright, see,
We're lucky 'cause everyone is off tonight.
Push up, push up, it's alright now.
My time's now mine,
And I'll spend it, yeah.
See, when I get home,
I'll be fine because...
Our time's now ours, yeah, and we spend it with the...

(Souped-up, souped-up, souped-up, souped-up, souped-up)
Souped-up vinyl spinning round and round.

Spin her around, oooooooooh. (It's the rough sound.)
Spin her around, oooooooooh. (Watch out now.)
Spin her around, oooooooooh. (It's the rough sound.)
Spin her around.

Yeah, tell my friends they can't ever grab a mic again.
Explain that, nope, sorry, never plug in again.
Tell me we're the only ones
And I'll show you all the people, yeah,
I'll take you where they are.
A rag tag of a couple who still get loose.
A couple angels...
A couple rude ones, too.
Oh no! There's no need to worry, see.
They never ever find us 'cause they don't know where we are.

Track Name: Deadpan
Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face.
Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face.

I look into her eyes.
I wonder if she likes me.
I look into her eyes.
I see a reflection of me.

Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face.
Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/b/big+d+and+the+kids+table/deadpan_20540685.html ]
I fear her insides.
I sweat.
I can't stand it anymore.
I stand, I leave this place.

I walk home in the rain.
I can only see her... face.
Eyes fixed on me.
Her deadpan face.

Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face.
Her deadpan face. Her deadpan face.
Track Name: Snakebite
And we're all just tearing up the night,
The rude boys are feeling alright
Damaged, destroyed, snakebite pints,
And the rude girls are spitting up a fight

And we're all just tearing up the night,
The rude boys are feeling alright
Damaged, destroyed, snakebite pints,
And the rude girls are spitting up a fight

You better run boy, they come for you
It's all or nothing, and you thought you knew
But we won't let them find you
No, we won't let them take you

All the risk, die for will
We're here to stay, if they push, we'll kill
No one will let us build it
Not one will let us build it

Take the wheel kid
You know the score
If you want it now, then youth uproar
They try and try to keep us
No one will let them keep us
You see the Nation, you feel that chill
We want it back, Battle of upper class hill
They'll try and fight to hold it
But we are meant to take it
And you'll know when we come for you

And we're all just tearing up the night,
The rude boys are feeling alright
Damaged, destroyed, snakebite pints,
And the rude girls are spitting up a fight

And we're all just tearing up the night,
The rude boys are feeling alright
Damaged, destroyed, snakebite pints,
And the rude girls are spitting up a fight

Fire spreads, city shrills
The streets a battle, revolution fulfilled
No one will let us own it,
Not one will let us own it

Gag the men who scream for war
Chain them down, Sheath the sword
I always knew we'd take it [x4]
I always knew we'd take it down!

We're gonna come for you
And you know when we'll come for you
And you know when we'll come for you
We're gonna come for you
Track Name: Strictly Rude
See her in the city and say
Oo she's got a lovely way
True she don't want to play
I pop no style
I'm strictly rude
See her in the club and you call out to me, true
See her, when I look she winks
See her dancing in the black
Waiting for me to attack
Drink a little beer, smoke, we're winos I think
An uptown, top right kid
See me and she pulls against me
Soon dancing is a constant thing,
checks to see I'm Allston boy, and I am
So now she knows my ring
When we leave, she rides with me
I'm an uptown, top right kid
Shall you see us driving we both sing
Check-o we're jamming everything
She says, "Loving's all I bring-
And I'm carrying for you, if you'll be my man"
She pops no style
She's strictly rude
When two fit, it makes you think
I got the cute one, my woman
She says, "Lovin's all I bring"
And it's her loving that's a wonderful thing
We pop no style
We're strictly rude
Lovin' yes we are, it's such a wonderful thing
When two fit it makes you think
See us both in the black
She lays on me so relaxed
Drink a little beer, smoke, we're winos I think
We're uptown, top right kids
See her in the club and she calls out to me
She winks as she's clawing at me
see us both in the black
She looks at me so relaxed
Drink a little beer, smoke, we're winos I think
Drink a little beer, smoke, we're winos I think
She says, "Lovin's all I bring"
And it's that lovin' that's a wonderful thing
We pop no style
We're strictly rude
Track Name: Try Out Your Voice
I was talking to a young man at a party in these war days
And he asked me my thoughts
I talked about peace, fighting for the people, he scowled than walked away
Told me my views are fucked

We screamed, we cry, the message has amplified
But they won't hear the people's voice
We screamed, we cry, the message has amplified
But they won't hear the people's voice
Common suits its time to show us something
You know its time for better days
Common suits its time to show us something
Just get your hearts out front, and prove your something

Remember being proud, remember feeling loved, remember when leaders gave sacrifice
I believe all men don't have a price
Truth in the state of the union address
Truth in this political process
I should not have to sit in for this

We screamed, we cry, the message has amplified
But they won't hear the people's voice
We screamed, we cry, the message has amplified
But they won't hear the people's voice
Common suits its time to show us something
You know its time for better days
Common suits its time to show us something
Just get your hearts out front, and prove your something
Try out your voice, now use it, now use it, we are the people
Try out your voice, now use it, now use it, we are the people
Try out your voice, now use it, now use it, we are the people
Try out your voice, try out your voice, just try out your voice
Now use it, now use it, we are the people
Track Name: Hell On Earth
Let the damn cows moo
Let those stupid birds fly
Let the dog sit on the chair
Let the cat shed its long hair
Let the goldfish swim outside

Let the smokers smoke
Let the politicians lie
Let grandma be a bitch
At the least be filthy rich
Let the stoners get high

Let's make life a living hell
Let's make life a living hell
Let's take everything we know
Toss it right out the window
Let's make life a living hell

Let the homophobes be scared
Let the gays adopt with care
Republics steal the dough
Democrats complain more
Let the system let us down

Let Charlton Heston have his gun
Let somebody shoot him just for fun
Pro-life be carnivores
Pro-choice be whores
Let's never help the bums

Let's make life a living hell
Let's make life a living hell
Let's take everything we know
Toss it right out the window
Let's make life a living hell

Let the acid rain fall
Let's not recycle at all
We know what we should do
But I don't care and you don't too
Let the earth decay and die

Let religion kill more
Let nonbelievers be tortured
Let the tyrants kill
Let the soldiers double kill
Let's all kill kill kill kill kill

Humanity
Fueled my fear and greed
Cultivate and kill
Is our great legacy
So much death to undo
But here's a fucking clue
If we can build a bomb
Can't we build heaven too?

Nah, let's make life a living hell
Let's make life a living hell
Let's take everything we know
Toss it right out the window
Let's make life a living hell

Let's make life a living hell
Let's make life a living hell
Let's take everything we know
Toss it right out the window
Let's make life a living hell

So let the damn cows moo
Let the children get abused
Let the goldfish swim outside
Steal from the old and watch 'em die
Lets make life a living hell, ah!
Track Name: Fly Away
Ditched out on a party when you were in a sick state
Always selling out for loose busted jail bait
Jetted on the bill, man he's such a cheapskate
The quality of your friends is something you should contemplate

Woah-oh-oh
Yeah-ea-ea-yeah
Kid, you know your friends will fly away
Woah-oh-oh
Yeah-ea-ea-yeah

Always making sure that everyone is feeling great
Whenever you feel down, she will always motivate
Kind words with her laugh, and smile she always resonates
Being walked all over is something she won't tolerate

Woah-oh-oh
Yeah-ea-ea-yeah
Girl, your friends will never fly away
Woah-oh-oh
Yeah-ea-ea-yea
Girl, your friends will never fly away
Just one of them people that everybody loves
Just one of them people that everybody loves

Going out to: Letty, Possy Jenkins, Johnny Trouble, Michael J
2-10 aka Deuce Decade, Story, Flores, Yosef-
Man everybody loves you!

Woah-oh-oh
Yeah-ea-ea-yeah
Girl, your friends will never fly away
Woah-oh-oh
Yeah-ea-ea-yea
Girl, your friends will never fly away
Just one of them people that everybody loves
Yeah, your just one of them people that everybody loves
Track Name: Breaking The Bottle
Start the day!
Drink...
Oh! A bottle of wine down.

Mid-day!
Drink...
Oh! A bottle of whiskey down.

It makes no sense,
You be telling us lies.
You be telling us lies.
You told us you're going straight.
Now on the concrete with a busted face.

Todd, please put down that whiskey bottle.
Todd, put the lousy bottle down.

Yes!

Too many nights, crashing your car.
Your face looks like it's thirty-five.
Rise up from the bug infested couch.
You lose your girlfriend while you're killing yourself.

You start fights that you can't win.
You have a new developed sense of sin.
I tell you, man, you have got to stop.
All of your friends have left you now to rot.

Don't be telling us lies. (No!)
I think he's telling you lies. (Nuh-uh!)
See, wait, no, I saw him just last week.
He left the city on his own to get clean.

Todd, he's out back, he's breaking bottles.
Todd's tossing lousy bottles down.
Todd's finally breaking the bottle.
Dirt, glass, and whiskey's on the ground.
Yes!

He's my friend!
Track Name: Raw Revolution
It started with the music thing
Not lovin' what the people sing
Just doing our own damn thing
And the scene said,
Hold up, you seven ain't right
Ain't feeding the peoples melodic appetites
But it's all we know
Took it down to the U.S. highways
Through the swamps of the U.S. byways
Just screaming "Hell, we're gonna do it our own way."
And the government said,
Hold up, you seven ain't right
Can't lock you down or tax you right
But it's all we know
And it's said that youth's ,well only tragedy
Is being unoriginal

So, you can call it a raw revolution
So, go ahead and call it a raw revolution
So, you can call it a raw revolution
So, go ahead and call it a raw revolution

Well I remember when Steve took a gulp of that poor kid's blood in Germany
Same tour I passed out in a Vegas Carl's Jr
How 'bout when I sparred with that big old pimp on the roof top in Switzerland
Or when I busted my head open that fun New York summer night
And that nice girl said
Hold up, you ain't right
Let me clean you up, you boys are a mangled sight
But it's all we know
And we're going
Hold up, we ain't right
Just hang together play music all night
'Cause it's all we know
And it's said that youth's ,well only tragedy
Is being unoriginal

So, you can call it a raw revolution
So, go ahead and call it a raw revolution
So, you can call it a raw revolution
Yeah, go ahead and call it a raw revolution
So, you can call it a raw revolution
Yeah, go ahead and call it a raw revolution
So, you can call it a raw revolution
Yeah, go ahead and call it a raw revolution

Cause it's all we know
Yeah it's all we know
See it's all we know
Yes it's all we know

Track Name: The One
I know you wanna love her for the rest of your life
But man, this woman her intentions ain't right
Tell me brothers am I right?
That woman is trouble you've got to wake up

I know I know
That everytime I speak she rolls her eyes and shakes her head,
says baby no one will know you said
I know I know
That I should let you live and love yourself
but it is hard when your laughter is now dead

So if you think your days are dark you better wait
And if you think your smile has not faded 'way
So if you're sick of crying then you better wait, wait
Wait, wait, wait
No need to hurry now

I know you wanna love her for the rest of your life
But man, this woman her intentions ain't right
Tell me brothers am I right?
That woman is trouble you've got to wake up

I know you wanna love her for the rest of your life
But man, when she gets on you its such a bad sight
Tell me brothers am I right?
That woman is trouble you've got to wake up

But what if I get lost? And what if I can't find?
A girl to take care of, a girl to be just mine
But what if I get lost? And what if I can't find?
A girl to take care of, a girl to be just mine

And if you keep that smile then you'll find a way
And if you keep your sun out then you'll find a way
And if you keep the pressure down you'll find a way, way, way, way, way
Until you're ready now

I know you wanna love her for the rest of your life
But man, this woman her intentions ain't right
Tell me brothers am I right?
That woman is trouble you've got to wake up

I know you wanna love her for the rest of your life
But man, there are much kinder girls here tonight
Tell me brothers am I right?
That woman is trouble you've got to wake up

I'm looking 'round tonight, oh, there are kinder girls here tonight, tonight, oh
I'm looking 'round tonight, oh, there are much kinder girls here tonight, oh

I know you wanna love her for the rest of your life
But man, this woman her intentions ain't right
Tell me brothers am I right?
That woman is trouble you've got to wake up

I know you wanna love her for the rest of your life
But man, when she gets on you its such a bad sight
Tell me brothers am I right?
That woman is trouble you've got to wake up

I know you wanna love her for the rest of your life
But man, there are much kinder girls here tonight
Tell me brothers am I right?
That woman is trouble you've got to wake up

No need to worry now, the one will come around
No need to worry now, the one will come around
Track Name: She Knows Her Way
She only heads out when it's late and dark
No need to worry, she's smooth, she's smart
I'll see her later 'cause we can't be apart
You tell me my girls trouble, yes, you tell me my girls trouble, 'cause she
Falls, gets back up, stumbles round, spins around, then just
Falls, gets back up, stumbles round, spins around
She melts into the night in her own rude way
Blown into the party like a warm hurricane - she says
It's nice to be
Drunk from love”
She knows she's floating, but she can't never get enough
Sings your name
Her word is art
Her chest's a window, so you can always see her heart
Her chest's a window, so you can always see her heart
Wayfaring drunkard dancing home, well she departs
But she knows her way back home
Sings to a branch that she passes on her way
Dances for a little sleepy pleased stray
Talks to a crow she's named a Mr. Blue Jay
I'll tell you my girl's wonders, yes, I'll tell you my girl's wonders
She's walking staring upward, staring upward, singing something
Kinda feeling like a devil on her way up to the heavens
She likes long, drawn, French songs
Stops to sit
The sidewalk
Bass is low, she sings a Ms. Bardot song
Space is high, she yawns and rubs her eyes
Then she calls me on her tele, just to tell me 'bout
A spider she finds pretty, a red polka-dotted spider
Police drive by and see her talking to the stars
Police have her put her hands on the car
Where are you heading, Ms.?”
76 Franklin, see that's where my baby lives”
Here I sit
My porch stairs
I breathe and squint
My cat sits by me
Way down the street I see my girl, she floats, yes, and dances slowly to me
Sits on me, hugging, both quiet in the dark
Whispering, 'cause it's a direct line to the heart
There is no distance that is keeping us apart
You tell me my girl's trouble, but you just don't know her wonders
And the waiting, whoa-oh
Yes, the love of waiting, whoa-oh
Yes, the love of waiting, whoa-oh
Yes, my love of waiting
For her
