MR. SOUNDMAN
(Pat Donohue)

Mr. Soundman, turn up the sound
So they can hear me for miles around.
Use all the volume that you can manage.
I wanna do a little hearing damage.
Mr. Soundman, you know what I need.
Keep on a-crankin' till their eardrums bleed.
I wanna terrorize this crowd.
Oh, Mr. Soundman turn me up loud.

Mr. Soundman, I'd like there to be
Lots less of everyone and lots more of me.
If you could turn me up a little bit higher
Till just before you blow your amplifier.
Mr. Soundman, cause me some pain.
I don't need earplugs or Novocain.
I ain't too good, but I ain't proud.
Oh, Mr. Soundman, turn me up loud.

Mr. Soundman, what did you say?
I must have blacked out. I think I'm okay.
You really got me with that high pitched squealin'.
I can't hear nothin' but I like the feelin'.
Mr. Soundman, you got it right.
My ears are ringin' for the rest of the night.
It's always up and never down.
Oh, Mr. Soundman turn up...
I wanna crash and burn up...
Mr. Soundman, turn up the sound.
