about

A very serious ode to socio-political discrepancies in monopolised capitalist societies

lyrics

I’m a hobo, a smelly hobo
I’m a hobo, a no good hobo
Got my jingling tambourine out of a pocket full of change
On my way to Hollywood I’m getting out of range

I’m a hobo, a smelly hobo
I’m a hobo, a no good hobo
With my home-brewed whisky I go out on the booze
Scuff my feet to the rhythm of the slow time blues


Let’s dance everybody let’s get down
Let’s dance everybody come around
I plunk away on an old guitar
I am the unknown superstar
I am the hobo – don’t you forget about me 2X


I’m a hobo, a smelly hobo
I’m a hobo, a no good hobo
Wash myself in a public place every damn day
Don’t let your children come my way

I’m a hobo, a smelly hobo
I’m a hobo, a no good hobo
I drink myself a sternie, and cheap liqor for lunch
I get my money from the shit you toss


Let’s dance everybody let’s get down
Let’s dance everybody come around
I plunk away on an old guitar
I am the unknown superstar
I am the hobo – don’t you forget about me

But together these 5 missfits found that by playing songs together they could lull their audience into a trance-like state. So they hired scruffy neighbourhood children to pick the pockets of the unsuspecting onlookers. ... more
