Stretch them on a box that's handy
cut them to different lengths
Each ones got a different sound, that's dandy
gonna have you a guitar, me thinks.
Get some guys and gals to help you
shake them out of their bags
Attach them all or a little bit will do
gonna have you a band, me gags.
Listen to the Rubber Band, band
do they know just how to play
Pop and break the rubber bands, man
cause half of them just won't stay.
So we're a crazy group of wild kids
and this is our first band
Please give us credit on our first gigs
we're so poor we hope you understand.
No we're not the Beatles or the Stones
won't beat the Eagles or C.C.R.
You'll never call us on your phones
and we'll never play in a famous bar.
