All the Change

I like sloppy home recording of this one. The vibe is relaxed, and Sarah's violin sounds great.

*Interesting side note: punk rock icon Yula Berri rehearsed with us once on bass and dug this song because she thought the lyrics were "bring back your mamma on a chain."


Listen: home recording, studio version


Go buy a quart of milk and bring back your mamma all the change Go buy a quart of milk and bring back your mamma all the change But I like those shoes and I like that hat And I wanna dress my baby up in something like that

Go buy a dozen eggs and bring back your mamma all the change Go buy a dozen eggs and bring back your mamma all the change But I wanna take my baby out tonight And I wanna dress her up all expensive like

When robins build their nests They build their nests with colored plastic And with bright, bright colored string When robins build their nests They build their nests with anything Well there’s a jar full of pennies that I keep under my bed So I’ll go buy a loaf of bread and won’t stop along the way And I’ll bring back my mamma all the change
