Lyrics

We’re the second-hand band - Second-line in your neighbourhood
We’re the second-hand band - Playing songs you know
Old songs too good to throw away
We’ll pick ‘em up, and play ‘em again
We’re gonna have a good time
With the second-hand band

We’re second-hand guys - We’ve been around
We’ve been near and far - To country, city and town
We’ done a lotta right, and done a lotta wrong
We aint foolin’ ‘round – we’ve learned a lotta songs
We’re the second-hand band
We make a funky sound!

We’re the second-hand band - Second-line in your neighbourhood
We’re the second-hand band - Playing songs you know
Old songs too good to throw away
We’ll pick ‘em up, and play ‘em again
We’re gonna have a good time
With the second-hand band

Why second-hand? – Why not something new?
Well, haste making waste (I’m in a hurry), gives me the blues
And it feels real good to save a lotta cash
When I fix something up, instead of making trash.
We’re the second-hand band
And make a funky sound!

We’re the second-hand band - Second-line in your neighbourhood
We’re the second-hand band - Playing songs you know
Old songs too good to throw away
We’ll pick ‘em up, and play ‘em again
We’re gonna have a good time
With the second-hand band

We play second-hand tools – for our instruments
Be it a rusty horn – or gardening implement
You might think we’re joking?
But if it’s bent or blue or broken
We’ll play it in the second-hand band
And make a funky sound!

We’re the second-hand band - Second-line in your neighbourhood
We’re the second-hand band - Playing songs you know
Old songs too good to throw away
We’ll pick ‘em up, and play ‘em again
We’re gonna have a good time
With the second-hand band
