Lyrics

Well She Was Just Seventeen
And You Know What I Mean
And The Way She Looked
Was Way Beyond Compare

Now I’ll Never Dance With Another (Woah)
Since I Saw Her Standing There

Well She Looked At Me And I I Could See
That Before Too Long I’d Fall In Love With Her
Now I’ll Never Dance With Another (Woah)
Since I Saw Her Standing There

Well My Heart Went “Boom”
When I Crossed That Room
And I Held Her Hand In Mine

Well We Danced Through The Night
And We Held Each Other Tight
And Before Too Long
I Fell In Love With Her
Now I’ll Never Dance With Another (Woah)
Since I Saw Her Standing There

Solo

Well My Heart Went Boom
When I Crossed That Room
And I Held Her Hand In Mine

Well We Danced Through The Night
And We Held Each Other Tight
And Before Too Long I Fell In Love With Her
Now I’ll Never Dance With Another (Oh)
Since I Saw Her Standing There

Well Since I Saw Her Standing There
Yeah Well Since I Saw Her Standing There

Somebody Once Told Me
The World Is Gonna Roll Me
I Ain’t The Sharpest Tool In The Shed

She Was Looking Kind Of Dumb
With Her Finger And Her Thumb
In The Shape Of An “L” On Her Forehead

Well The Years Start Coming
And They Don’t Stop Coming
Back To The Rules
And I Hit The Ground Running

Didn’t Make Sense Not To Live For Fun
Your Brain Gets Smart
But Your Head Gets Dumb

So Much To Do
So Much To See
So What’s Wrong With
Taking The Back Streets
You’ll Never Know If You Don’t Go 
You’ll Never Shine If You Don’t Glow

Hey Now You’re An All-Star
Get Your Game On Go Play
Hey Now You’re A Rock Star
Get The Show On Get Paid
And All That Glitters Is Gold
Only Shooting Stars Break The Mold

It’s A Cool Place
And They Say It Gets Colder
You’re Bundled Up Now
Wait ‘Til You Get Older
But The Meteor Man Beg To Differ
Judging By The Hole
In The Satellite Picture

The Ice We Skate
Is Getting Pretty Thin
The Water’s Getting Warm
So You Might As Well Swim
My World’s On Fire
How About Yours
That’s The Way I Like It
And I’ll Never Get Bored

Hey Now You’re An All-Star
Get Your Game On Go Play
Hey Now You’re A Rock Star
Get The Show On Get Paid
And All That Glitters Is Gold
Only Shooting Stars Break The Mold

Go For The Moon
Go For The Moon
Go For The Moon
Go For The Moon

Hey Now You’re An All-star
Get Your Game On Go Play
Hey Now You’re A Rock Star
Get The Show On Get Paid
And All That Glitters Is Gold
Only Shooting Stars

Somebody Once Asked
Could I Spare Some Change For Gas
I Need To Get Myself Away
From This Place
I Said Yep What A Concept
I Could Use A Little Fuel Myself
And We Could All Use A Little Change

Well The Years Start Coming
And They Don’t Stop Coming
Fed To The Rules
And I Hit The Ground Running

Didn’t Make Sense Not To Live For Fun
Your Brain Gets Smart
But Your Head Gets Dumb

So Much To Do So Much To See
So What’s Wrong With
Taking The Back Streets
You’ll Never Know If You Don’t Go (Go)
You’ll Never Shine If You Don’t Glow

Hey Now You’re An All-star
Get Your Game On Go Play
Hey Now You’re A Rock Star
Get The Show On Get Paid
And All That Glitters Is Gold
Only Shooting Stars Break The Mold

All That Glitters Is Gold
Only Shooting Stars Break The Mold

The Album

In 2007, I reconnected with my long-time friend and former bandmate, Gary Zdenek. We jammed with a group of guys on Friday night, and that informal gathering led to the formation of a cover band called The HitMen.

The original lineup of the band was named Room For Five and consisted of Charlie Askley on lead vocals, Mark DeVilbiss on bass/vocals, Gary Zdenek on drums/vocals, Craig Ott on guitar/vocals, and myself on keyboards. We mainly covered the hits from the 50s through the 70s, including The Beatles, Elvis, and The Who, among others. It was my first serious venture into the world of cover bands.

After playing a few venues, the band underwent some changes with the departure of lead vocalist Charlie Askley. We decided to change our name and started calling ourselves The HitMen. Our debut was in late 2008, with a slightly different lineup that included Mark DeVilbiss on bass/vocals, Gary Zdenek on drums/vocals, Craig Ott on guitar/vocals, and myself on keyboards.

We expanded our music catalog by including several 80s songs and played at additional venues, including Splits Lounge, Pelican Isle, and a few exclusive events.
Over time, we made a few more changes, including adding a new bass/vocalist, a new vocalist/guitarist, and a new name.

Despite the challenges of changing a band’s lineup, we remained dedicated to our love for music and the thrill of performing in front of live audiences. We said goodbye to our time in the spotlight as The HitMen and expanded our horizons as the newly formed SlipJacket.
