NOFX wrote “Please Play This Song on The Radio.” I guess this chorus is my response. Andrew Jackson Jihad already wrote “Sense and Sensibility” so I had to come up with a different title. Jeff Suffering once said in reference to music “the first thing that happens when your priorities get out of line is you get into debt.” We seek to be creative and work within our means. Ironically after I wrote this song we spent 2 weeks living at my parents while Tessa recovered from surgery. I also ended up getting a job with the US Census, that I found really fun. And yes, I really do I have an Uncle Bob and he probably eats ramen.


Sense and sensibility well it never meant that much to me in fact I've never seen it on tv
land of opportunity well I'm pretty glad were kinda free because truth is we could be a lot worse off

chorus: please tell me what you're gonna do if you're not gonna play this on the radio

to maximize the rock n' roll yes were taking back some control but we seek to not avoid responsibilities Like where do go when the money's spent? Yes I'm married and I pay the rent and that's a life I'm committed to
see I could go back with mom and dad see growing up wasn't that bad but that's not really what we wanna do


So we will do things on our terms applying the lessons we have learned
and trying our best to steward what we have
so if it means I gotta get an extra job eat more ramen like my Uncle Bob
then maybe we will see these dreams come true
