about

Inspired by the voices of The Beach Boys and the guitars of The Strokes this is a song about growing up and how our elders force restrictions upon us. Yet, as we grow older we somehow miss the freedom of our youth.

lyrics

LYRICS:
Stop all your clowning around
Keep your voices down, down
Raise your hand before you speak
Don’t you leave your seat

That’s what they would tell me
That’s what they would tell me

You’ve got the right to pass
But you can’t skip class, class
Feel free to ask me why
But I won’t say it twice

I wish the moon would shine on me
But there’s no time to dance out in the street
Don’t ask me why
I won’t say it twice

That’s what they would tell me
That’s what they would tell me
That’s what they would tell me

I’ll give you all you need
To let your mind go free, free
Color in between the lines
Or you’ll do the time.

I wish the moon would shine on me
But there’s no time to dance out in the street
Don’t ask me why
I won’t say it twice

(And I won’t tolerate impolite)
That’s what they would tell me
(If I hear one more of your overly loud yawns
Get up and walk the hell out)
That’s what they would tell me
(Yawn outside. Whatever it is you need to do to get over it.)
That’s what they would tell me

I wish the moon would shine on me
But there’s no time to dance out in the street
Don’t ask me why
I won’t say it twice

That’s what they would tell me

about

The Fresh Preps Honolulu, Hawaii

We sound kind of like if Vampire Weekend and The Beach Boys had a baby, who was then adopted by The Beatles and babysat by The Black Keys. Kind of.

The Fresh Preps are three eclectic songwriters and an inventive drummer who have an insatiable urge to make music fun again. We really only have one rule: "Don't be so serious." And we take that rule very seriously.
