about

Big Bill Austin, Texas

Big Bill is a punk band made up of brothers Eric and Cody Braden, Alan Lauer, and Alex Riegelman that has existed since 2011.

Influenced by the deadpan irreverence of The Monks and Talking Heads, Big Bill has developed their own unique version of punk rock, invoking the “all are welcome” vibe of punk’s early 80’s prime—as personified by Austin legends like Big Boys and The Dicks.

Track Name: What Do You Want On Your Salad?
In the shadow of the temple
Beyond the iron doors
We're all getting salads, man
What do you want on yours?

What do you want on your salad?
What do you want on your salad?
What do you want on your salad?
What do you want on yours?

We got ranch (Yee-ha!)
We got French (Ooh-la-la!)
We got Italian (Buenisimo!)
And balsamic (Hidey-ho!)

What do you want on your salad?
What do you want on your salad?
What do you want on your salad?
What do you want on yours?

Cut off your ears
If you don't want to hear
But life is a buffet and we got everything
And croutons

What do you want on your salad?
What do you want on your salad?
What do you want on your salad?
What do you want on yours?

What do you want?
What do you want?
What do you want?
What do you want?
Track Name: Loitering
They try to sweep me away with a broom
They can’t keep me away with a broom
I’ll hang out here as long as I like
I might even hang out all night

Cuz I’m loitering
I’m loitering
(He’s got no business here at all)

They try to sweep me away with a broom
They can’t keep me away with a broom
I’ll hang out here as long as I like
They should be happy that I’m not inside

Cuz I’m loitering
I’m loitering
(He’s got no business here at all)

Nowhere to go so I’m never gonna leave
Nowhere to go so i’m never gonna leave
They sell air here and the water isn’t free
They sell air here and the water isn’t free
Nowhere to so I'm never gonna leave
When i die i’ll be loitering

Nowhere to go so I’m never gonna leave
They sell air here and the water isn’t free
I got no ride I got no I.D.
When i die i’ll be loitering
Track Name: Trick Everybody
I pick up my trash
When people are looking
I go across the street
When people are coming
I leave my house
Go for a drive
But nobody knows (Knows what?)
I’m not really alive

Gonna trick everybody into thinking i’m a somebody (4x)

I see them watch
When I walk by
Like they would
To any other guy
I bet they think
There goes a pretty good call
But when i’m back home
I’m just staring at the wall

Gonna trick everybody into thinking i’m a somebody (4x)

I got a job
At the grocery store
My manager calls me
Superstar

Gonna trick everybody into thinking i’m a somebody (4x)
Track Name: Bigger Than Me
Just because you are big
Doesn’t mean you won’t go extinct
Anyway, I can say
All your strength never worked on me

You got a really big foot
You drag it around the room
You're bigger than me
But I'm bigger than somebody too

You got a really really really big foot
You drag it across the room
You're bigger than me
But I'm bigger than somebody too

Just because you are big
doesn’t mean you won’t go to sleep
Anyway, I can say
That all your strength will never work on me

On me...

Lean close to me when you talk
I got big ears
So what
I’m really tall
I know it all
And even when you whisper to yourself under your bed you know what?
I can hear, it I can hear it (I can hear it. I can hear it.)
I can hear it, I can hear it (I can hear it. I can hear it)

You oughta be
In a cage
I am regular
And you are strange
I'm very strong
My hands are long
And even when you think a thought inside of your head you know what?
I can hear, it I can hear it (I can hear it. I can hear it.)
I can hear it, I can hear it (I can hear it. I can hear it)
Track Name: Baby Go Wah
We took the baby to the top of Baby Hill (Baby Hill)
We tried to roll her down to give the baby a thrill (baby thrill)
She wanted nothing to do with it (Nothing to do with it)
She wanted nothing to do with it (Oh no...)

Baby go wah wah wah (4x)

We bought the baby a little baby doll (baby doll)
So that the baby wouldn’t have to feel so small (baby small)
She knew just what to do with it (Just what to do with it)
She knew just what to do with it (She said...)

Baby go wah wah wah (4x)
Wah wah wah (4x)

Hey baby doll
Do you cry for us all? (3x)

Hey baby doll
Do you cry for us all? (3x)

Hey baby doll do you cry for us all?
Hey baby doll do you cry for us all?

Track Name: Peak Physique
All death comes from fear of death, oh yeah

All death comes from fear of death
All death comes from fear of death
We worship satan ironically
You worship god catatonically
All fear is fear of death
All death is fear of death

All death comes from fear of death
All death comes from fear of death
Some say well he's a freak
Others feel I got peak physique

You know what you are? (Peak physique)
You are a star (Peak physique)
Everyone knows your name (Peak physique)
But not from what’s in your brain (Peak physique)

All death comes from fear of death
All death comes from fear of death

Some say I’m a fucking freak
Others feel I got peak physique

You know what you are? (Peak physique)
You are a star (Peak physique)
Everyone knows your name (Peak physique)
But not from what’s in your brain (Peak physique)

I need an eye, I need an eye
So I can see, objectively
I need an eye, I need an eye
So I can see, so I can see
In this county
You can get wealthy
So get rich
Or get out
In this village
You can be healthy
So get fit
Or get out
I need a leg, I need a leg
So I can stand, So I can stand

No sleep till peak physique (4x)

All death comes from fear of death
Track Name: Clint Eastwood Is My Dad
Clint Eastwood is my dad
Best dad I ever had
He’s just “Grandpa” to my kids
He talks about all the movies he did

Clint Eastwood is the bomb
He loves me and he loves my mom
He supports me in many ways
Best dad in the U.S.A.

Clint Eastwood is my dad
When he dies I’ll be very sad (Very sad)
He’s no punk rocker
He prefers Charlie Parker

Dad wasn’t always around
But I love him just the same
Track Name: Fear of Body
The body’s erupting again
Somebody tell my baby hold on

Waiting for my body, waiting for my body, waiting for my body cool down
Waiting for my body, waiting for my body, waiting for my body cool down

The body’s reacting to sound
Somebody tell my baby get down

Waiting for my body, waiting for my body, waiting for my body break down
Waiting for my body, waiting for my body, waiting for my body break down

Body
Fear of body
Body
Fear of body

Feel the body start to resonate
You gotta contemplate
Will you disintegrate
(No way man)
Feel the body fail to cooperate
You could be safe at home
Or on a dinner date
I think I need a body lobotomy
Is my cold dead hand still a part of my body?

Fear of body
Body
Fear of body

My body’s only four-and-a-half feet tall
If I ever got too tall
I’d be afraid I’d fall

My body’s only four-and-a-quarter feet tall
If I ever got too tall
I’d be afraid I’d fall, fall, fall, fall

When I leave my baby behind
Somebody tell my body
Somebody tell my body get down

And should I leave my body behind
Somebody tell my baby
Somebody tell my baby hold on
Track Name: Last Meal
Well son, now that I’ve read your LAST RITES, It’s time to get your order for your LAST MEAL.

Last meal? Last meal, huh? Father, I thought you’d never ask.

I want a chicken pot pie
With the chicken still alive
Anything
That’ll look me in the eye
An alligator
In a box
I’ll spread it on a bagel
With the capers and the lox

Gimme a chain saw
I’ll eat it it raw
With a 55 gallon tub of
Cold coleslaw
Chocolate milk
And a buttered scone
I got a date with the devil
And I'm going alone

I killed
An innocent man
I'll take seven
Beers in a can
Barbecue sauce in a big horse trough
And I want a Frito pie
Before I die, yeah

Well son, you got a mighty big appetite. Here’s what I can do for you. I can get you a nice juicy steak. A baked potato. And a fresh green salad.
