DON’T COME CLOSE You know it's generally known You got everything at home Kisses out of desperation Bring you more aggravation And you don't come close You don't come close You don't come close You bring out your souvenirs Soak them wet with your tears You lose your imagination Out of more aggravation And you don't come close You don't come close You don't come close You turn red with rage But act your age Only thing that you regret You need more time to forget And you don't come close You don't come close You don't come close Repeat verse 1 Repeat chorus Repeat bridge Repeat chorus x2

CARBONA NOT GLUE Wondering what I'm doing tonight I've been in the closet and feel all right Ran out of Carbona, Mom threw out the glue Ran out of paint and roach spray too It's TV's fault why I am this way Mom and pop wanna put me away From the early morning movie to the late late show After it's over nowhere to go And I'm not sorry for the things I do My brain is stuck from shooting glue I'm not sorry for the things I do Do Carbona not glue Carbona not glue Hey x4

about

Tommy And The Rockets Odense, Denmark

Good time power poppin' rock 'n' roll.

It’s the essence of the Beach Boys, Rockpile, and The Ramones all rolled into one.

Tommy and The Rockets are the 1963-65 Beach Boys reborn in 2016 Denmark - armed with supremely infectious melodies, harmonies to die for, and a stack of Ramones singles. If you remember rock n' roll radio, this is your new favorite band!
