We are the boys from Little Eden
We are the hardest Saturday nights
Drank from the fountains of the fireworks
Sweat and bone for a better life

We like our choruses sung together
We like our arms in our brothers' arms
Call every girl we ever met Maria
But I only love Virginia's heart

And we sing with our heroes thirty-three rounds per minute
We're never going home util the sun says we're finished
And I'll love you forever if I ever love at all
Wild hearts, blue jeans, & white t-shirts
With wild hearts, blue jeans, & white t-shirts

Some things, babe, they never told you
Some things papa doesn't like
Spend a lifetime just to get over
You always said my mama tried

Still we sing with our heroes thirty-three rounds per minute
We're never going home util the sun says we're finished
And I'll love you forever if I ever love at all
Wild hearts, blue jeans, & white t-shirts
With wild hearts, blue jeans, & white t-shirts

So tonight I'll call you from a fourth-street payphone
But I'll sleep on the beach if I ain't got a ride
Someday I'll buy you that house on Cookman
We could sleep on the beach all night
Sleep on the beach if we ain't got a ride
Sleep on the beach all night
Sleep on the beach all night
Sleep on the beach if we ain't got a ride...

--------

This song is fucking amazing! Could listen to it forever! So much soul in it.

There is just so much soul in this band. When I listen to them, even though it is new material, it is like I have always listened to it, very strange.

I especially love the chorus - brilliant.

I think the best review I ever saw for TGA was all about this song:

"Blue Jeans and White T-Shirts, this song will be important"

that was the entire review... brilliant!

I agree with them entirely. That song alone makes them totally awesome.

it is my second favorite song...

I do think that this is the song that has universal appeal and will be a big part of why they will be so successful... I do not know anyone that does not love this song

I know they copy write their music to Little Eden Music too- Side note- I'm not sure if you saw/read the interview where Brian talked about this song. He said that he got it from looking at a picture- He saw a picture of them playing at Asbury Lanes awhile back, and noticed that they all had blue jeans and white t-shirts on. So he wrote about that- about "back then" growing up and stuff.

The forum just fucked up. My answer to your question got deleted too

33rpm is a speed on a turntable which plays vinyl records
Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts 1112472794oyyNU1
So he's singing along to his heroe's records at the pace off 33 round per minute


Hope that helps!

the chorus is brilliant. music. young "love". a truly universal chorus because everyone has been there and felt what he's singing about in one way or another.

beautiful song.

I was listening to this song yesterday, and the thought occured to me...
The line "We like our arms in our brothers' arms".... could it be a reference to the Dire Straits' song Brothers in Arms? Maybe sort of a stretch, but I was trying to figure out exactly what they meant by that line and this reference made sense with the whole "sing with our heroes 33 rpm's" bit.

"We like our arms in our brothers' arms"

I've never understood that line either. Thought it may link to comradeship or friendship or something. Not sure if Brian's a Dire Straits fan. He could well be.
