Spenser found some clues
in Hit Parades and Melody Makers
and whispers in the grooves
of records spinning in the basement

he stomped on the box
he needed some fuzz for the riff he was making
but buzz was what he got
dead batteries and busted cables

he said, “fuck it, I'm too young for this
I just wanna play the blues
but all I ever seem to get
is bad news, bad news,
and I can play piano
better than she can
and I'm already in seven
but I'm gonna start another band.”

he called it The Jaws of Love
it was Spenser and a dozen CT­370s
they turned their backs in the club
this wasn't what they paid $4 to see

Spenser struck a chord
it was a C­Major 7th with an inverted third
the kids all turned toward
the sound and they listened with their ears on the floor

one said, “I love what the DJ said”
one said, “I love his shoes,
but what are we gonna call it?”
one said, “bad news, bad news.”
