​Noisy Night

This song is by Portastatic and appears on the album The Summer Of The Shark (2003).

When last July
Like a soaking sheet came down
Like a broken hose soaking the ground
You were not around

Some of us held true to form
Well, in the summer, yeah, in the dog days, the attic gets warm
So we stayed in
Just to see the sweat on someone else's skin

Now it's noisy, noisy night
And you can't hear the kissing for the fights
Ice in your gin, crickets on ten
Underneath the yellow bug light

Well, it's noisy, noisy night
And you stumble toward the warmth of something bright
Ice down your chin, crickets on ten
Underneath the yellow bug light

When next April comes around
And you feel the stiffness go out of this town
What will have changed and who will engage
These summer currents, 'cause you know I'm down

Or will we drift out in the yard
Linger too long against the hood of your car
And take that as enough
To get us through, well, it's tough

Now it's noisy, noisy night
And you can't hear the kissing for the fights
Ice in your gin, crickets on ten
Underneath the yellow bug light

And it's noisy, noisy night
And this whole town's got it's mouth open wide
Ice down your chin, and who let these jokers in
Baby, let's just go for a ride, it's a noisy night
