ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Famous in Portland (lyrics)

Darkness falls across the land
Your asshole friends are close at hand
As these rappers stalk in search of fame
And terrorize ya'lls rap game.
- - - - -
We got half a million people, a quarter-million dipshit bands
More Misfits t-shirts than there are Misfits fans.
Mathematically that means some of you people are lying,
And I'm pretty sure my patience is the only thing you're trying.
You couldn't hold my interest if your forehead was adorned
With a unicorn horn and a tattoo of hardcore midget porn.
That's really sweet you got a write-up in the Mercury -
From where I'm standing, you're still looking like a jerk to me.
- - - - -
Everybody thinks you're the shit,
But I would remove the definitive article.
Cause you're definitively making my list
Of hangers-on, leeches, and barnacles.
So fuck you and your whole
Missy Elliott Smith Family Robinson Crusoe
*Pow* - ooh! I got a bruised nose, I paid my dues though,
So the importance of your crew is news to me, yo...
- - - - -
We're famous in Portland like Old Town Elvis
We're famous peoples, even if you never heard of us...
From Burnside to Glisan - from Couch to Stark
We're playing for hotdogs in Paranoia Park.
Holdin' my scrotum, eating a doughnut
Being underground famous like The Church of Elvis
In the 80's I was headbangin' to Sweaty Nipples
But now I've rocked all stages from EJ's to Darcelle's
- - - - -
- - - - -
You're shittin' bricks cause someone knows what your name is?
When there's only one list, everybody's on the A-list.
Acting like your word's got national significance
You're not famous, you're Portland famous - there's a difference!

I'm a small fish but my pond is even smaller
If you're famous in Portland I wanna hear you holler:
I'm famous!
I'm famous too, but only in Portland.

Like Packy the pachyderm, I'm a big nerd
Bigger on the block than Big Bird
Packin' club shows, yo we got a little horde...
See it's great to be a "Butterfly Lord"?
Whoa... Who fucked up on the marquee?
The letters sposed to read "Buttery"!
Not...
Butterbean, Nuttery, Nutlery, Cutlery...
Celery? Barely Legal Belly Button Whores?
No no no...
We're Buttery Lords!
We play where Hub works and morgues.

Portland, Portland, it's a hell of a town
You know the Pearl is up, and the eastside's down.
Didn't you get the memo? Stop starting bands!
Go work on your demo, work with your hands
Instead of workin' your mouth, blahdy-blahdy-blahdy-blee:
"My band got five stars in the new Willy Week"
Well if you got time to grow, you got time to weed -
Throw out your stupid band ideas we don't need.
- - - - -
Put on your black hoodie and your trucker hat,
Clip on your wallet chain and grab a can of Pabst.
Now your non-conformist uniform is where it's at
And you could probably get elected mayor!
Say your name every time you're given half a chance
And grow a post-ironic mullet and never dance;
Cause having fun's about as out of date as parachute pants
(Unless you're wearing them to be sarcastic)
- - - - -

You're shittin' bricks cause someone knows what your name is?
When there's only one list, everybody's on the A-list.
Acting like your words have national significance
You're not famous, you're Portland famous - there's a difference!

I'm a small fish but my pond is even smaller
If you're famous in Portland I wanna hear you holler:
I'm famous!
I'm famous too, but only in Portland.
