Same Old Place
An Improvization by the Big Jerks

Who you trying to fool
I said,
Who are you trying to fool?
I'm no fool.

Who you trying to fool?

You know we're not fools out here
This is Hermosa Beach, California
And every local knows
That you're goddamn Pavilion building
Was a boondoggle
Ah no
No no, who you trying to fool?
Oh no
Who are you trying to fool?

Ya see,
They got this big old place they call it the Pavilion
Ya know, Berty, the Pier Street Pavilion
Big ugly, cement, piece of crap building
And every local in Hermosa Beach knows
No one'll park under that thing
No no, not in California
Why, we got earthquakes here and
Everybody's scared to park under the goddamn place
We're not parking under there!
I don't care if you got attendants
We're no fools, oh no.
Who you trying to fool?

So here it is,
You can put a new face on her
But it's the same, same old place.
Yeah, you can put a facade...
A brand new face on her, but
You know, we all know it's the same old place
Who you trying to fool, I tell ya?
Everybody knows!
That's the same old...

Same old Place
Yeah you can put a new face on her, but,
Everybody knows it's the same old place
What do you think we are, fools?
No no no, no.

Nah nah nah, same old
Same old place
It's the same old place

You know the funniest thing about that old place was...
When it was all derelict, and they had chain links around it...
There was a little sign on the...
Did you guys see it?
There was a little sign on the chain link fence.
You know what it said? It said, it said, it said,
"Keep Out!"

Every goddamn local in Hermosa knows
That everyone kept out!
I didn't need no goddamn little sign telling me to keep out.
No one wanted in there.
No one wanted in there!
No no no no.
Put a new face on her, sure but,
It's the same old place!
Yeah, 'keep out, keep out', it said,
It's a joke!
It's the same old place
Put a new face on her, but...
It's the same old place
Who you trying to fool?

Same old place!
Yeah, goddamn cement building
It's the same old place
You can put a brand new face
It's the same old place
And every self respecting local in Hermosa knows
It's the same old place
We're not going in there, no no.
We're going to 'keep out!'
It's the same old place
Sign said, 'keep out, keep out!'
It's the same old place
Sign said, 'keep out, keep out!'
The sign said...
It's the same old place...

It's the same old place
It's the same old place
We all know, we're all locals here
It's the same old place
Call it what you will
It's the same old place...

It's the same old place.
