lyrics

Didn’t we have a devil of a time?
Stranger stumble into town, talkin’ turnin’ tables ‘round
Didn’t we have a devil of a time?

We shot and slammed the glasses upside down
I was the last one to take a mask
But the first one to strike a match
Shot and slammed the glasses upside down

Didn’t I paint a face on the sleeping guard?
Convention sleeps when the sun goes down
So copper, try and catch me now
Didn’t I paint a face on the sleeping guard?

Well, the silent sirens wait in the alleyways
‘Til the stone of order’s cracked in two
Wake and spin the red and blue
Silent sirens wait in the alleyways

For the moon is under water of the carnival canals
Gotta rattle fragile borders
For what’s a city with no underground?

To wander through a Venetian maze
When I never marched the streets of New Orleans
But the devil’s brew I drank tonight
Tomorrow have me exorcised
And tighten up my necktie once again

Crown me the Merry Lord of Misrule
With my cracked mask, lei, hangover, and a ragged suit
Well at curbside, I crept from sleep
Some stranger left behind his reeds
Crown me the Merry Lord of Misrule

Didn’t we have a devil of a time?
They say, “Who’s this drunkard stumbling down
In rags, with palm ash on his brow
Singin’, ‘Didn’t we have a devil of a time?’”

about

Mischief Brew Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Emerging from the undead ashes of PA punk troupe The Orphans, Mischief Brew started with a scratchy demo tape in 2000 and has since spread the good word of anarchy, hilarity, and rebellion across state lines and even the Atlantic Ocean a few times. We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
