El Cerrito Lyrics

Walking down the street in San Francisco just the other day
Wondering what has happened to the freaks and hippies and the punks
Everybody's squeaky clean, they look and dress and act the same
I don't give a shit about your IPO I live in El CerritoMama took the Altimeter Transit bus to work each day
All the way down San Pablo, thirty years a Naval base
Never heard her once complain about taking public transportation
You should ride the city bus just like the rest of us in El CerritoDo do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do
El CerritoBig moustache in taxi cabs, don't you know the ?
Union bus to ? morales, I said it
Bullshit claims to change the world, making Wall Street bankers even richer (richer, richer, richer)
El Cerrito's got its problems but we don't pick pockets of the working manPablo was an engineer, working Hewlett Packard
Dumbarton Bridge two times a day then lost his job and pay cheque
We would go and visit him in bars in Jack Landis Square
I don't give a shit about your IPO I come from El CerritoDo do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do
El Cerrito
Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do
El CerritoIf there is a lesson from this story to be learned
It's not exactly what you think, you shouldn't be concerned
It's not that we don't like the rich, it's simply that we think this kind is boring
Everybody thinks and acts the same that's why I live in El CerritoDo do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do
El Cerrito
Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do do do do
El CerritoOoh

Cracker is an American alternative rock band fronted by Camper Van Beethoven singer David Lowery, with guitarist Johnny Hickman. They are best known for their hit songs "Low" and "Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)".

The band's website once noted Cracker as "The only band to ever open for both Grateful Dead and Ramones," a unique distinction which is also indicative of the band's sound and style. Cracker comfortably mixes influences and sounds ranging from classic country music, psychedelia, punk and folk into their brand of "Americana" style rock.

Lowery and Hickman are inalterable constants. The band continues to tour (as a full band, and also as the "Cracker acoustic duo"). Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
