The Supper Club
Pigfarmer Jr Feat. Nick Davies
Recorded live at Songfight! Live 2019 @ The Rigby - Madison, Wisconsin

I walk in and place an order
A taco salad and something to drink
I turn the corner and see the table
Nod to my friends, give them a wink

Thursday night is trivia night and
We're Dahmer's Dinner Party
Fuzzy's Tacos does it right and
We're Dahmer's Dinner Party
Won't you come and join the supper club?

Kevin: What famous prison...
TC: ALCATRAZ!!!

Kevin: What famous prison, located on an island, was...
TC: ALCATRAZ!!!

Kevin: What famous prison, located on an ISLAND, was established by Napoleon in 1852?
TC: ... umm... Alcatraz?

Kevin: The answer is "Devil's Ilsand"

Kevin sets up and asks the questions
And we all try to guess the answers
We take a drink and fill out the sheet
Turn it in in an orderly manner

Thursday night is trivia night and
We're Dahmer's Dinner Party
Fuzzy's Tacos does it right and
We're Dahmer's Dinner Party
Won't you come and join the supper club?

Kevin: What "blonde bombshell" actress...

A place where you belong, a place to sing a song
Welcome to the supper club
Everyone is nice, giving you advice
Every night at the supper club

We take you as you are, whether near or far
Just come on down on in to the supper club
No-one needs your name, we’re always glad you came
All are welcome at the supper club

Be the way that you want to be
Comfort is what sets you free
We’re your friends and your family
All night long at the supper club

We’re happy when you’re glad, saddest when you’re sad
Please join us at the supper club
Precious fish to fry, reminder of days gone by
Every Friday at the supper club

We relish when you’re here, love when you drink our beer
Please relax at the supper club
Have a drink or three, connecting you and me
The rest of your life at the supper club

Be the way that you want to be
Comfort is what sets us free
We’re your friends and your family
All night long at the supper club

A place where you belong, a place to sing a song
Welcome to the supper club
We love you through and through, it’s something old and new
Please enjoy the supper club
We love you at the supper club

The Supper Club
Micah Sommersmith
Live at the Song Fight Live Live Fight

(note: these are the lyrics I intended to sing, which are of course not exactly the lyrics I did sing.)

It’s 5 o’clock on a Friday, do you know where your grandparents are?

Pulling all our shiny SUVs into the supper club
Exchanging our “hello”s and “how you be”s there at the supper club
Saying with a smile, “Well, old friend, it’s been a while
Your wife has never looked more lovely; as for you, you’re still alive
And I don’t think that we’ve spoken since I lent you out my leaf blower
Which is probably sitting in your shed next to my lawn mower
Which judging by your yard, has sat unused since last July
But let’s not talk about it at the supper club.”

It’s half past five on a Friday, do you know where your grandparents are?

Knocking back a brandy old fashioned at the supper club
Saying that our lives are going smashing at the supper club
“Smashing like the potholes are smashing up my car
When the hell they gonna repave this stretch of County R?
And Evers wants to tell us how we’re s’posed to spend our money
That egg-headed socialist is - sorry, what’s that honey?
You’re right, I said I’d try to keep the conversation sunny
So let’s not talk about it at the supper club

It’s six o’clock on a Friday, do you know where your grandparents are?

Helping ourselves to another buttered roll at the supper club
Stopping to inspect each other’s moles at the supper club
“It’s probably benign and you’ll probably be fine
But did you hear that Pat Mlodzik has a tumor on her spine
And the Legion’s gonna donate all the proceeds from their pancake breakfast
To support her family in this very trying time
And of course it doesn’t help her husband’s not allowed to drive
This has gotta be his fifth or sixth or seventh DUI
But oh, I’m sorry, we were having such a lovely time
So let’s not talk about it at the supper club.”

It’s half past six on a Friday, do you know where your grandparents are?

Digging into the beer battered cod at the supper club
Offering belated thanks to God at the supper club
Thanks for the relish and the salad and the fish
Every single morsel of every single dish
And we’ll eat until we feel our bellies bursting out our shirts
And we’ll eat a little more, you know we’ll eat until it hurts
In the morning we’ll have heartburn and we’ll probably have the squirts
But let’s not talk about it at the supper club.

In the morning we’ll be mourning our restraint and self-control,
As the calories on calories begin to take their toll
But for now, it’s Friday night, so could you pass another roll?
And let’s not talk about it at the supper club.

The Supper Club
miscellaneous owl
Recorded live in Madison, WI (OK, I re-recorded a less noisy, less mistakey version than what I played at Song Fight! Live, but I still did it all as a single take, single room mic recording. And it features the real deal applause from SFL :))

The dead are waiting at the supper club
Just like when they were alive
Their names all chalked on the wall by the jukebox
they've been feeding with the coins from their eyes
From their eyes

And up in the front of the supper club
Wooden panels curve around the endless room
The dead are eating carrots from the relish tray
Cheese and crackers and incense from the tomb
From the tomb

And ohhhh, I didn't think that I'd be waiting here so soon
An Old Fashioned in my hand, standing awkward by the garbage can,
Drinking cause there's nothing else to do
Waiting in the supper club for you
Waiting in the supper club for you

Phyllis brings me over to a table
Even though I wanted to wait till you arrived
She freshens up my drink, and says, honey, come on, think about it
You can't just sit around until he dies
Take my advice

And when I first walked into the supper club
I thought I saw my grandma in the hall
But the faster that I walked, the farther away she got,
Until there was nothing left at all
Not at all

And ohhhh, in the supper club, it's always Friday night
The fish fry lasts forever, and it's always summer weather,
But without you, eternity feels odd
Sitting around and waiting here for cod
Sitting around and waiting here for cod

They saw what they wanted to see
Put in a box
Given our own identity

Although the past was yours
This is our moment
We could take care of them
Put they shouldn't count on it

So what's the difference
A criminal, a princess
The judgements of the people
Projecting their own interest
Each generation changed
The rules of the game
It's your time now
So write your own page

Don't you think it's time you forgot about me?
There's another side that we haven't seen

The flush of youth
It fades so quickly
We were strong and beautiful
But tomorrow we won't be

So what's the difference
A basket case, a genius
The judgements of the people
Projecting their own interest
Each generation changed
The rules of the game
It's your time now
So write your own page

Don't you think it's time you forgot about me?
There's another side that we haven't seen
Don't you think it's time you forgot about me?
There's another side that we haven't seen

Vom Vorton
recorded live at home

It's said a healthy body
Leads to a healthy mind
Well look into my heart
And see what you can find
A couple of rats and some cobwebs, probably
They say keep yourself active
And you'll rest well at night
Maybe that explains the visions
When I turn off the light
Am I haunted by my own inactivity?

I dream of car crashes
Contaminated air
Sickness
And losing my hair
And the food eating me
At the supper club

It's said sharing your problems
Cuts them all in two
Well I've written this song
To force them all on you
Please compile your notes and then get back to me
it's a weight off to know you're there for me
A bunch of friends who really care for me
And also scapegoats on which to place the blame, naturally

I dream of politicians
Explosions in the sky
And the sad fact
That everyone will die
And I'll wake up onstage
At the supper club

I dream of heartbreak
Some kind of global plague
And my brain turning
Desolate and vague
And the weird things that I ate
At the supper club

The Supper Club
Evil Grin

NSFW

V1
Just like anybody else
I had to get away
For a while, rest my bones

So I booked myself a room
A cheap ass motel
On the bay, I was home

But little did I know
Snobs, yuppies, and pricks
Had come here too, for the view

PC1
Not sure how I’m gonna stand you for a whole week
Not sure how I’m gonna hold my tongue and not speak

C
Not gonna join your goddamn supper club
Talk about golf and wine
And how it’s hard to find the time

Not gonna join your goddamn supper club
Golf is dumb and wine is super gross
You could find the time if you wanted too

V2
I’ll have a whiskey or 5
And take a closer look
My legs are hairy, like your soul

My Camry got here just fine
How much did your Benz cost?
Your first born child, and your spine?

Yeah, my clothes are second hand
But you look quite absurd
Like a lemon, with the plague

PC2
Guess I’ll feel sorry for you for the next few days
It must be hell in your head, walking in your haze

C
Not gonna join your goddamn supper club
Talk about golf and wine
And how it’s hard to find the time

Not gonna join your goddamn supper club
Golf is dumb and wine is super gross
You could find the time if you wanted too
If you wanted too
So fuck you
Fuck you

The Supper Club

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put my brain back together again
But four kids taught me how to never say never
We only met once but it changed our lives forever

You only see us as you want to see us

I was in the maths club, Latin and the physics club too
And thirty four years later I’m sitting in the supper club with you
(No more classrooms
No more books
No more teacher’s dirty looks)

Now every single night when I look up at the stars
I think about my friends and wonder where they are
I look into the mirror and I see their faces
I wonder what I’d look like if we were to trade places

You only see us as you want to see us

I was in the maths club, Latin and the physics club too
And thirty four years later I’m sitting in the supper club with you
(No more classrooms
No more books
No more teacher’s dirty looks)

They say that London Bridge is falling down
But I designed that bridge and it’s built on solid ground
Our kids are making noise and they’re doing alright
By skipping out on school to try and build a light

You only see us as you want to see us

I was in the maths club, Latin and the physics club too
And thirty four years later I’m sitting in the supper club with you
(No more classrooms
No more books
No more teacher’s dirty looks)

The Supper Club
The Supper Club

We all go there
To see our friends
Everyone inside
Has no reason to pretend
We sit around
Share our meal
It’s so easy
And it’s no big deal

C G Am CcG
So pull up a chair
And hang around
At the supper club
It’s going down
Good friends
Good times
At the supper club
There ain’t no lines

G D A A

Bring a glass
A bottle of wine
Well it’s friday night
And we’re ready to unwind
Smoke some grass
Have a laugh
Put a record
On the phonograph

Bm Am
We move into the kitchen
Wash and dry the dishes
Talking about our wishes
Everything was so delicious

C D

Haven’t seen you
In a while
Well it’s okay man
That’s just your style
It’s never too late
To arrive
We’ll be meeting here
When we’re one hundred and five
