LYRICS (B. Endes) This town is swimming with Type A types They gotta be on top And what are we doin here trying to keep up Ain’t gonna happen anyway Come hang with me down at the bottom Come play with me, girl On the beach I had a revelation I had to kick things up I waded in and i learned to swim But the real fun was below Come hang with me down at the bottom Come play with me where the sun doesn’t shine Come hang with me down at the bottom It’s gonna make a little wave When this record drops We know the squares won’t care about it Just let em float on by Come hang with me down at the bottom Come play with me where the sun doesn’t shine Come hang with me down at the bottom Come play with me girl you know I won’t bite Come hang with me Come hang with me Come hang with me Come hang

Street Fight 03:04
LYRICS (B. Endes) Everybody knows how to ride But you did that when you were five Now you’re grown up and dead inside You’ve got responsibilities No time to slow down There is no time to look around Until some kid is on the ground Street fight - Move over Street fight - It’s my right I’m burnin gasoline Bet you wish you weren’t so lazy You know I wish you weren’t so crazy That’s a half ton truck you’re operating Street fight - You loser Street fight - I’m bigger This is America, baby

Friday Night 02:51
LYRICS (B. Endes) You don’t know how much I adore you I can’t even look you in the eye I’ll just stand here in back acting bored until you arrive You said you’d be at the show When will you arrive, arrive, arrive I’ve never seen them before But I hear they are really good live Let’s make our way to the front This feels like a dream The stage lights light up your face This feels like a dream a dream a dream They’re passing around a joint And I know you know what to do I’ll figure it out too This feels like a dream We’re dancing and I am hoping you mean it I’m in like with a chick who likes good music I know when Monday comes And I see you again in the hall We won’t talk at all about it The best night of my life Not a word, maybe a look The best night of my life My life

LYRICS (B. Endes) Who played who? Left my man for a woman who looks like Aimee Mann We made out in the can Then she broke my heart After that auspicious start And I drove around town looking for her car A stalker with no plan And some brand new skills... Maybe my jokes are inappropriate But I got to laugh to keep from cryin’ I got to laugh to keep from cryin’ Number two Was a hot, smart lover of good music from the ‘80s And wine delivery Oh I fell so hard Maybe not the hardest so far But when she turned on me I could have sawed off my arm Just like in the movies Like drama much? Have you got the touch! Well I think I will be touching me By now, I should have a degree But I got to laugh to keep from cryin’ I got to laugh to keep from cryin’ Ooh wah wah wah...

LYRICS (B. Endes) Wish I could be in two places at once Breakfast on the porch Midnight in her bed May as well be centuries apart On a mountaintop On the deep blue sea

Into the Sun 03:57
LYRICS (B. Endes) Another day in this dirty shed Watching the mean men with the feed I am waiting for the right time to run If it kills me I’m gonna get out Into the sun Only kill me quickly I watch how they do it I see how they work the latch They will see just how smart we are I will free you, please come with me Into the sun Please come with me now No more waiting Let’s go! I’ve got a field to run I’ve got a watering hole I found a good human I’m gonna get real old I’m gonna get real old...

LYRICS (B. Endes) I know it’s true that we could run this joint much better than you I know it’s true The only reason you do it is for the cash and the underage ass You ain’t ever seen the tracks and the tracks will be washed out soon Now you could not care less about how it’s gonna end That’s not part of the plan Because capitalism ruins everything that’s worth doing Why are all these kids holed up in trailers outside the walls of their schools Why do we have The biggest army but their families need food stamps and you’d get rid of those too I go uptown and the townhouses gleam Next to train stations with homeless populations Because capitalism laughs at the other half The myth of the self-made man is alive and well in America - right? I can bring home the bacon fry it up in a pan Never let you forget The myth of the self-made man I know it’s true that we could run this joint much better than you I know it’s true The only reason you do it is for the cash the cash the c-c-c-c-cash You ain’t ever seen the tracks and you won’t hear the train coming through Because capitalism ruins everything that’s worth doing Because capitalism ruins everything

John Doe 03:18
LYRICS (B. Endes) We made some noise, we had a good thing We knew how to sing harmony But we drifted off course And in the end I was free On my own to wander aimlessly Through the club scene And wonder how you made it look so easy Song after song, you sing the world Inside us all She said ok - she took a chance on me Said show me whatcha got Play that thing You get another shot Like John Doe said, “Lots to do so don’t wait” Yeah he wrote that in my book Between the pages of so many words struck through Come on this time don’t blow it We gotta stick together...

LYRICS (B. Endes) I’m gonna take you down with me My heart is a black hole sick tired and Coasting on the American dream It’s the middle of the night Am I a fraud? Do I know what it means? The regular rules don’t apply I come from superior genes Come from superior genes Do you dare to disagree I’ll fix it with a tweet I’m your commander in thief I’m your commander in thief I’m your commander in thief! I’m gonna take you down with me We’re all in this for the money Can you believe they’re so easily fooled I’m your commander in thief
11.
LYRICS (B. Endes) Most of the time I am dreaming Eyes wide open, thoughts are free Just receiving I get through the day so I can be with you We fall in line so easily Marching to the beat of I got my money Never mind what’s happening behind the scenes Every day the information overload is piling on itself I’m trying I just think I wasn’t made for these times You’re the only responsibility I don’t want to avoid

about

"Barbara Endes writes and sings these melodic bursts of punchy roots-punk-surf-rockabilly complete with vocal harmonies, the bluesy guitar of David Weiss, and the skin tight rhythm section of bassist Dave Mandl (yeah, the guy on WFMU) and drummer Nancy Polstein... I keep looking for new rock bands to like with little or no success. I think I found one."
- Aquarian Weekly

"Today Glide is excited to premiere “Because Capitalism”, an aptly titled song that offers biting commentary on how fucked up our country is."
- Glide Magazine

"The sophomore album from Brooklyn, New York’s Girls On Grass is an even bigger thrill than their debut; from the first beat and guitar notes, you know that this band has found its collective firm footing and deliver a bold, delicious sound – melodic, rocking, poppy, sometimes sneaking in a little country vibe and tight harmonies, bolstered by Barbara Endes’ dynamic singing."
- Rob Ross, MusicTap
