These days, almost as much Band time is spent on ‘E’ promotion (Facebook for example) as playing music and
Chasing those illusive Gigs, Festivals and opportunities feels like trying to catch several snakes at once and of course you
have to keep re-inventing yourself by ‘throwing bones’ out to the gods of marketing !


Hey, Hey, Hey. Hey, Hey, Hey.
Saw you scrolling, down the page, finger on the trigger babe, just like a pressure gauge.
Had to ask, to be your friend. There’s a little message girl I needed to send.
I Ain’t got no money and I know that your blue. So I’m sending some love meant just for you.
Hey, Hey, Hey. Hey, Hey, Hey.
Hey, Hey, Hey. Sharing some love babe. Hey, Hey, Hey, meant just for you.
Now I’ve got you, just can’t let go, I need to keep you girl, cos babe we’re on a roll.
Just never leave me, keep our love bright, message me girl, morning noon and night.
You know I’ll always love you, you know I’ll treat you right.
So keep those likes coming girl, press those keys tight.
Hey, Hey, Hey. Hey, Hey, Hey, keep those likes coming girl. Hey, Hey, Hey, Press those keys tight Hey, Hey Hey.
Hey, Hey, Hey. Hey, Hey, Hey. Hey, Hey, Hey. Hey, Hey. Hey.
Cos we’re chasin’ snakes, throwing bones, it’s what it takes, it’s how we roll.
Making friends we seldom see and just getting likes for you and me
So all day long, from dusk ‘til dawn, we’re chasin’ snakes and throwing bones.
All day long, from Dusk ‘til Dawn, you know we’re just chasin’ them snakes & throwing them bones.
All day long, from Dusk ‘til Dawn, we’re chasin’ snakes and throwing bones.
Chasin’ snakes, chasin’ them snakes , throwing bones, and were throwing them Bones.
Chasin’ snakes, chasin them snakes babe, Throwing bones, throwing them Bones.
