about

Evan Burnette Greensboro, North Carolina

Have you ever noticed how in the bio bands usually copy something from a website or a newspaper that some other person has written? And isn't that totally lame way to do it? Third person is a terrible way to write about yourself according to Evan Burnette. He'd rather write his songs in first person, that's what makes it so easy to connect with him as a human entity. -Leo Nardin, Soup Magazine ... more

Do you like knowing
That I think you’re exciting
And that I think that your foxy
And that you have a lot of moxie? ... moxie

Do you like cow tipping?
Do you like skinny dipping?
Do you like wishing
That we could do something?
For example: we could get a coffee
And grab a gluten free toffee
Then go hang gliding
I’ll hold your hand while scuba diving
I hope you like high-fiving

Do you like knowing
That I think you’re exciting?
I think we could be having
Fun even just talking

Track Name: Intro
Ooh Aah Ooh Ahh Ooh Ahh Ooh (8X)
Track Name: I LIVE ON THE EDGE (of acceptable song length)
I update my computer during thunderstorms
I live on the edge! I live on the edge!
I drive my car and I talk on the phone
I live on the edge! I live on the edge!
I get packages delivered when I’m not at home
I shave without applying water and foam
I shave with an edge! A razor blade edge!

I pay all my bills with only minutes to spare
yeah, uh huh
The change in my car could only cover one fare
One toll booth fare! One turnpike fare!
The mace in my gear is only enough for one bear
If you’re hanging with me then you better beware
I live on the edge! I live on the edge!

I only save 20% of the money I make
I’ll live on the edge if I live past 88
I use cancer causing candles on my birthday cakes
I eat medium-rare corn fed bovine steaks
I grill on the edge! I grill on the edge!

I stay up past my bedtime on Friday evenings
Lethargy edge! Insomnia edge!
I’m only capable of sharing some of my feelings
Emotional edge! Psychiatric edge!
I update my computer during thunderstorms
I’m driving my car while I talk on the phone
I’m driving my car out on the edge!

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Yeah!

Testosterone baby power

Testosterone baby shower

He’s been a badass baby from the day he was conceived
He can wrestle bigger snakes than baby hercules
One day he’s gonna grow up and be a badass kid
the bullies at the school will never mess with him
He’ll mess with them, they’ll wanna be like him cuz
He had a

Testosterone baby shower
Testosterone baby power
Baby’s enemies will run and cower
Testosterone baby shower

He’s building cars, drinking in bars, drinking beer, growing a beard
He’s out in the world, kickin’ asses, fighting crime and growing baby mustaches
He’s half Hungarian, half barbarian, he’s a totalitarian and he’s not a vegetarian

Testosterone baby shower
Testosterone baby power
Baby’s enemies will run and cower
Testosterone baby shower

Testosterone baby shower
Testosterone baby power
Baby’s enemies will run and cower
Testosterone baby shower
Track Name: There Were No Bowls
With my luck being this way
I knew that it would happen one day
When I needed one it wouldn't be there
And I would feel alone and hungry and scared

There were no bowls, there were no bowls
So I couldn't eat my cereals
There were no bowls, there were no bowls
So I couldn't eat my cereals

I was desperate so a plate I tried
But it wouldn't hold the milk inside
And in a mug I can't use my spoon
So I really don't know what to do

Attempted to use origami
Ended up getting soggy
Went next door to borrow a bowl
But none of my neighbors were home

Ohh!

There were no bowls, there were no bowls
So I couldn't eat my cereals
There were no bowls, there were no bowls
So I couldn't eat my cereals

Tried to make a bowl out of wood
But it didn't turn out very good
Finally I went to the bowl store
Now I don't want... cereal no more!

Ooooh.
