about

i asked wes to record some beats at his place and send them over. he sent me 20 minutes of him playing insane wes style beats and fills. i cut them up and formed the basic drum tracks for the verse and bridge. i knew the syncopated bridge was going to be fun to work with. the chorus was added in much later after it kind of hit me that the song didn't have one. several versions of this chorus came and went. the chorus in the end repeats three times, kind of like a round since the it starts and ends on and A7 chord. This was also one of the first songs i was able to play violin on.

also i really do like it when B.A. Baracus picks up bad guys and throws them at other bad guys. it's just genius.

lyrics

hard to imagine, anyone liking CHIPs,
just seems so slow now, maybe it's not
Hard to believe I, used to like Michael Knight.
maybe i wasn't right, maybe i was

KITT can be cruising, cruising the parking lot
he just needs to find a spot, a spot to fit in
You heard the captain, he said be safe out there
I know you really care, you care a lot

CHIPs is on then the A-team,
knightrider and then Hill Street Blues
(i cant wait til)

raised, raised on a tv show,
every one i know, everyone i know

You know that B.A. is picking up other guys
to throw at the other guys
his weapon of choice

Carol is a good mom quit your bitchin
gotta ask Alice down in the kitchen
throw them bad guys B.A., throw them at the D.A.


itchy and scratchy on tv with a man dressed like a bumblebee
your off the case McGarnacle, no your off your case chief!

CHIPs is on then the A-team,
knightrider and then Hill Street Blues
(i cant wait til)

raised, raised on a tv show,
everyone i know, everyone i know
