lyrics

Rome's Burning

Coming over yeah, right on time
Check my rabbit fur and four bags of wine
Your old guitar is like a friend of mine
Back in the grotto where we all feel fine

The girls are smoking, won't you light that fire
Work in the morning? Have you lost your mind?
Say Mister Junior won't you pass that pipe?
Tell the boss we ain't the working kind

Rome's burning
Yeah but we don't mind
Called the cops
But we're hard to find
Back in the grotto
Kicking back in style
World's broken
So we got all the time

Ain't leaving till I see the light
Creeping through at the end of the night
EQ and Lou are sounding nice and tight
Back in the garden where we all feel all right

Rome's burning
Yeah but we don't mind
Called the cops
But we're hard to find
Back in the grotto
Kicking back in style
World's broken
So we got all the time

Jumped the fence back by the trees
Skin's crawling on its hands and knees
Andy's looking for his basement keys
Shaking loose messing with the bees

Rome's burning
Yeah but we don't mind
Called the cops
But we're hard to find
Back in the grotto
Kicking back in style
World's broken
So we got all the time

SPIN: Bon Mots are one of the most promising new bands out there. A-

JIM DEROGATIS: Jangly psychedelic/power-pop draws on Byrds and Zombies but rises to the top of this always-overcrowded genre by virtue of strong songwriting, swirling production.

AMPLIFIER: Understated irony frequently underscores bittersweet melodies.

ALL MUSIC GUIDE: Bon Mots just may be Chicago's best-kept secret.
