Forget the Garage (Part 1) ©

William Denholm
Edinburgh, Scotland

Forget the garage and hip-pop
Now the darkness have arrived
The kids want to rock
They’ve grown tired of manufactured pop
A new generation picking up electric guitars
Dreams of being up there
With the rest of the stars
Trying to create a new sound
Like past generations used to do
With a message
All the kids can relate to
England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales
No rise in record sales
Now they go to
Where it’s all happening today
At the South by South music festival
Austin, Texas, USA
So a larger audience
Can hear and see them play
Hoping in the future
They will see their names
In The Hard Rock Café.
