about

The 20-something working stiff's anthem.

lyrics

I’m payin’ rent
For a shoe box where I sleep but forget my dreams
And common sense
Says I should leave it all behind
Can’t be treading water at 25

Paycheck's here, not much left over for me
But I'll call up my friends
And we'll hit the streets
Cuz we worked so long almost forgot how to play,
And we’ll raise our voices now
And no one can take ‘em away.

Cuz we want the night! (ooh ooh ooh)
Leave our troubles in the daylight
Give us the night (ooh ooh ooh)
And leave or troubles in the daylight
We want the night!

New York
The city is a playground for VIPs
So dive bars
Are the place where we spend our time
Cuz cash goes fast in a single night

Paycheck's here, not much left over for me
But I'll call up my friends
And we'll hit the streets
Cuz we worked so long almost forgot how to play,
And we’ll raise our voices now
And no one can take ‘em away.

(Excitement rising as the sun goes down,
Let’s raise a glass and toast to make each second count!
We’re gonna leave our mark on the town,
Getting out of control, dancing till we hit the ground!)

And there’s no telling
There’s no telling
What to expect or who we’ll meet
There’s no telling
What the night brings now!

about

The Mad Sugars Nashville, Tennessee

Take the dance rock of Franz Ferdinand, the garage grooves of OK Go, the harmonic sensibilities of 60's BritPop and mix them up in a blender and you have a decadently sweet concoction that would best describe The Mad Sugars.
