​The Trouble With Public Places

This song is by Cadallaca and appears on the album Out West (1999).

I know the trouble with the public places
I've seen too many of those unfamiliar faces
Drink and yell and push around
I just came here to see this band
Oh no, don't talk to me
'Cause you're way too stoned
And you're way too drunk

Just give me a house
Give me a room
Give me a private party or two
Give me a beat I can dance to
And I'll go away

The bands, they start at nine
So we got there right at 10 o'clock
But, oh no, their van broke down
They're in Portland now
And they're all lost
We came to see you
We can't receive you
If you can't make your time slot
Oh no, this guy is talking to me
It's almost one o'clock

Give me a house
Give me a room
Give me a private party or two
Give me a beat I can dance to
And I'll go away

Now is the time to liberate
All good things come to those who wait
And see the hot new band
I hear the buzz is good on them
But I can hardly stand another set
Much less an hour of this yuppy head
Should I go home, go to bed
But then I won't see the band
And I'll never know
I'll never know
I'll never know
I'll never

And I know the trouble with the public places
I've seen too many of those unfamiliar faces
Drink and yell and push around
I just came here to see this band
Oh no, this guy is talking to me
It's almost 2 o'clock

Give me a house
Give me a room
Give me a private party or two
Give me a beat I can dance to
And I'll go away
I'll go away
