Composers: The Mighty Mighty Bosstones


I like noise, that’s why I’m livin’ where I am
I like the noise and confusion of a traffic jam
I like the sound of a jet as it’s shakin’ my dwellin’
I like ragin’, rampagin’ and screamin’, and yellin’

Sound of a fire engine headed for a fire
Emotions so high they can’t get any higher
Goin’ out of control in an outta hand crowd
I like noise and it’s gotta be loud

Awfully quiet
Awfully quiet
Awfully quiet

It was awfully quiet on the streets yesterday
People on the streets had little to say
Well, I walked the streets and barely heard a sound
It was awfully quiet on the streets downtown

Sometimes quiet’s okay, sometimes quiet’s alright
Given the choice, I like noise, morning, noon, and night

It was awfully quiet and on the trains last night
People on the trains kept the conversation light
I rode the trains and barely heard a word
Quietest train I ever heard

Sometimes quiet’s okay, sometimes quiet’s alright
Given the choice, I like noise, morning, noon, and night

Awfully quiet
Awfully quiet
Awfully quiet

It was awfully quiet and I needed some noise
I got on the blower called up the boys
I was doing so bad I could barely hack it
They came to my house and they kicked up a racket

Ooh-ah
Ooh-ah
They turned my place on its ear (ooh)
The boy’s began to riot (ah)
It felt so good to hear (ooh)
On a day that was so quiet (ah)
I screamed and cheered them on (ooh)
And I helped out where I could (ah)
And when they all were gone (ooh)
I was feeling good!

I like noise that’s why I’m livin’ where I am
I like the noise and confusion of a traffic jam
I like the sound of a jet as it’s shakin’ my dwellin’
I like ragin’ rampagin’ and screamin’, and yellin’

Sound of a fire engine headed for a fire
Emotions so high they can’t get any higher
Goin’ out of control in an outta hand crowd
I like noise and it’s gotta be loud

Yeah, it’s gotta be loud
Oh yeah, it’s gotta be loud
Come on, it’s gotta be loud
From now on it’s gonna be loud
Oooh yeah!
