lyrics

With one year down and many more to go
Hey! Hey!
From pub to pub and show to show
There’s a long road paved out on front of us
But we can get through with honesty and trust

There’s been some hardships along the way
Hey! Hey!
With too much work and no time for play
We’ve sold our souls to punk rock and roll
So let’s lay down our cards and never fold!

Broken bottles broken strings
These are my favorite things
Broken bottles broken strings
A new breeds waitin' in the wings

Through drunken shows and not much dough
Hey! Hey!
We’ve got through it all and hey what cha’ know
We all seem to keep coming back
My friends, my family a common pact

We’re hard headed, hard drinkin chip’s of the block
Hey! Hey!
Punchin’ our time in life’s time clock
We’ve sold our souls to punk rock and roll
Lay down our cards and never fold!

(chorus)
Broken bottles broken strings
Broken bottles broken strings
These are my favorite things
Broken bottles broken strings
A new breeds waitin' in the wings

Broken bottles broken strings
Broken bottles broken strings
These are my favorite things
Broken bottles broken strings
A new breeds waitin' in the wings
