Aliens in my Brain I’ve got aliens in my brain again, I’m acting strange again ‘cause there’s Aliens in my Brain again They’re deleting all the files that I left open, They’re laser frying the remnants of all of my emotions, I’m acting strange again, cause there’s aliens in my brain again I’m Luke Skywalker searching for a light sabre, I’m breathing like Darth Vader, Here they come again, those aliens in my brain again. I’m a junkie Major Tom, without no ground control, I’m Country Joe MacDonald, soaring on space patrol, I’m a starship trooper with no gun, Hal’s in charge and I’m heading for the sun, With autopilot on, With autopilot on. Yeah I’m heading for the sun, but this ride just aint no fun So I’m turning Autopilot on Oh oh… her we go…oh no… her we go again I’m understanding Klingon and Wookie too, I’m a Russian cosmonaut’s cosmic spew, I’m acting strange again, ‘cause there’s aliens in my brain again I’m C3PO when he came unscrewed, I’m a dalek full of attitude, Here they come again, those aliens in my brain again. I’m Doctor Who stuck in the Tardis before time began, I’m a floating raving space invader in a sardine can, this ride just aint no fun Danger Will Robinson, you’re heading for the sun, With autopilot on, Autopilot on. I’m heading for the sun, but this ride just aint no fun So I’m turning Autopilot on Oh oh… her we go…oh no… her we go again

Good For Me 03:43
Good For Me She’s got a heart of gold And she’s easy on the eye Took me six goddamn months To convince her to be mine So I just sat back, just bidin’ my time Coz this girl’s too damn fine for me She’s like a little Disney princess All covered in tattoos A little Norma Jean, And a little Betty Boop Man, you throw it all together a what’s a man supposed to do This girl’s to damn cute for me She can make magic on a canvass With a tin of gold paint She’s a little bit of sinner And a whole lotta saint Man you think I’m jokin’, I can tell you I aint Coz this girl’s too damn quaint for me She don’t mind if I’m up late at night Or if I sleep half the day And when I got the blues She knows just what to say And if that just don’t help loves me quietly anyway This girl’s way too good for me She gives her heart and soul Helping others in need And if you got her back baby She got your back indeed And there’s no sign of spite, envy, malice or greed Coz this girl’s too damn sweet for me She don’t mind my thinnin’ hair Or my widening waist And even if she did The girl’s too kind to say So no matter whatever whenever wherever I’m goin her way This girl’s too damn great for me So there aint no doubt about it No its plain to see This girl aint no girl If she aint the right girl for me So I got right down right there down on bended knee Sang girl…. Won’t you marry me

One for the Kononut Well I found you in that black box filled with light Spewin’ out the brilliant mind that lay behind the vibrant sparkles in your eyes, Your feet firm on the ground, you helped me find what needed to be found And we reached for the stars, who knows one day we might just get that far And you helped me through the hardest times And you left me with a stronger heart and mind And there’s nothing I can do but always keep a piece of you with me Until the end of time, by remembering the times We lived the good life, we strolled the sandy shores we drank that cheap wine, ‘cause that way we could have more And we laughed until it hurt, and we slept upon the dirt so we could dance until we couldn’t dance no more ‘Til we slept so we could dance a little more Then you came across the pond, And won the hearts of all those dear and fond to me, When we jumped into the Ocean, you were stung in just a moment And you sewed beneath the vines and Crafted works of art for me and mine made the fire dance Never scared to take a chance And you always you knew exactly what to say And you loved to goof around and fool and play And there’s nothing we can do but thank the stars we got to laugh with you And spend a little time, remembering times We lived the good life, we strolled the sandy shores We drank the cheap wine, that way we could have more And we laughed until it hurt, and we slept upon the dirt so we could dance until we couldn’t dance no more ‘Til we slept so we could dance a little more Hey there little miss Koko-nut Brighten every day, fill the world with love Put smiles on the faces every where you go From way down under over mexico You sure turned lemons into lemonade brought joy to every single friend you ever made this world won’t shine as bright without in it I hope somewhere you can here me sing it We lived the good life, we strolled the sandy shores We drank that cheap wine, that way we could have more And we laughed until it hurt, and we slept upon the dirt so we could dance until we couldn’t dance no more ‘Til we slept so we could dance a little more We fought the good fight, we trekked into the forest We drank that cheap wine, that way there would be more for us And laughed until we cried, and we stared up at the sky so we could watch the birds go dance among the clouds, and I know you’re up there dancing with them now

about

After over two years in the making, Canberra funksters East
Row Rabble are releasing their debut self titled EP. The final single from the EP, “Good for Me” is an upbeat blues-rock love
song with dynamic snaps and dirty horn jams. Rabble
front man Ben Drysdale actually used the song to propose
to his wife on the hills overlooking Queensland’s
Glasshouse Mountains underneath the giant “Woodfordia”
sign at the Woodford folk festival.

The EP delivers the same slick mix of funk, reggae,
blues and soul with upbeat party horn lines that fans
have come to love from the band. Addressing a mixture
of world issues and daily curiosities, Drysdale’s songs
explore the many, varied, and often conflicting elements
of any situation with honesty, hope, and a little cheekiness.
