He's Doing Synthesizers

by Lee Rosevere

[1] He's heard the Human league He loves John Foxx He adores Gary Numan He's abandoned rock [2] He's spiked up his hair The rhythm is his slave wants to sign with Sire Records To be a part of the new wave [3] He's got a Juno 60 And he bought a drum machine Now he's got a minimoog What could it mean? [4] He's got a sequencer No need to have a band Just wants to make dance music With a touch of his hand [CHORUS] he's doing synthesizers he's doing synthesizers [5] Everything is synthesized Nothing is real Including his ambitions It's all part of the deal [6] Now he's shopping around his demo To all the big industry cats Ready to hit the big time In his tight leather pants [7] Up all night at discos And doing fine He's got it made to the beat of a Roland T-909 Tries his best to make the scene At all of the clubs [8] He's think he's friends with Martyn He's been calling up Vince He's sold his guitar He's unplugged his amp since [CHORUS] he's doing synthesizers he's doing synthesizers [bridge] The retro future is here today Just use the presets, no need to play Switch on that sequencer you just found Embrace cold electronic sound he's doing synthesizers he's doing synthesizers


Bruce Levenstein wrote a few lyrics for a song when Stephen Malkmus "went electronic"

I added a few verses of my own, wrote the music and sang it (apologies to Mr Neil Tennant)
