Hey Bret (You Know What Time It Is) Lyrics

My people came out of the forests and the mountains, into this unpromising land.
Scratched out a living in this desert valley; hard living for any man.It weren't no Eden, as cold as Sweden, like Hades in the summer time,
We built the cities, we dug the ditches, we picked the fruit from the vine.Hey, Bret! You know what time it is? (X 4)Skip forward four generations, comes a great first world nation,
But I'm living in the third.
Trying to make a living, playing on my SG Gibson, tending bar and sometimes selling herb.We live like serfs, in this new feudal land; we pay the bills and fight the wars.
I ain't no wobbly, no pinko Commie; let's start the end times right now!Hey, Bret! You know what time it is? (X 4)

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.
