Little girl red dress
 pony tail and what a mess
Lifes so hard she don't know
 run away and she's got no home
Think it's bad when people care
now she's got no one and no one cares
 
Chorus:
No one cares
No one cares

Take a road that leads you out
 got a home but you wore it out
Know too much for one so young
 it's all about you having fun
To think about anothers rare
 you push away the ones who care

Chorus:
No one cares
No one cares

All alone you find yourself
 a year from now and there's no one else
Everyone wants a part of you
 they take and take until you're through
Your hopes and dreams are in the past
 doing things don't tell don't ask

Chorus:
No One Cares
No One Cares
No One Cares
No One Cares

Outro:
No one cares,no one cares No one No one
No one cares,no one cares No on No one
No one cares,no one cares No one No one
No one cares,no one cares No one No one cares

YOUR SAYING THAT I’M CHANGING…

IN SO MANY WAYS

BUT STILL MY SHELF HOLDS TRUE

AND I SEEM SO FAR AWAY

EVEN WHEN I’M CLOSE TO YOU

COME BACK FROM THE PAST, MY FRIEND

TO HAUNT ME WITH YOUR SMILE

TO HEAR THE SIMPLE WORDS…

YOU MIGHT AS WELL STAY AWHILE

RIGHT NOW I’M….

TALKIN WITH MY EYES

NO NEED FOR DISGUISE

THE WORDS COULD NEVER SAY

WHAT’S IN MY MIND TODAY….

CAN YOU SEE IT?

HOLDIN’ RIGHT ON THROUGH

IT’S ONLY MERE LANGUAGE

CARRYING THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD

I MUST HAVE SEEMED LIKE THE QUITE TYPE

NEVER HAD MUCH TO SAY

SOMETIMES MAD AT THE WORLD

BUT THAT WAS THE PRICE TO PAY

YOU NEVER THOUGHT I HAD IT, IN MY SOUL

TO TURN OUT SOMETHING GOOD

I GUESS MY VIOLENT ATTITUDE

WAS ALL YOU UNDERSTOOD

YOU MIGHT AS WELL STAY AWHILE

RIGHT NOW I’M….

TALKIN WITH MY EYES

NO NEED FOR DISGUISE

THE WORDS COULD NEVER SAY

WHAT’S IN MY MIND TODAY….

CAN YOU SEE IT?

HOLDIN’ RIGHT ON THROUGH

IT’S ONLY MERE LANGUAGE

CARRYING THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD

AND SO YOUR PRIDE IS SHATTERED

AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO

AS YOU REACH FOR MY HAND, YOU’LL UNDERSTAND

I LOVE BEING CLOSE TO YOU.

WELL YOU’VE GOT YOUR WAY NOW…

I’VE OPENED UP TODAY..

NOW I JUST HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND

THIS NEW MAN’S WAY…

Verse1:

Stumbled into my poor old digs the time was three o three o three
Thought I had a song to make didn't know if it could be
Had to get it down if you don't use it you loose it you choose it
Wasn't much but I depend on me

Verse 2:
Sat down at the poor old keys and I tried to work it out
Wasn't easy wasn't hard but I was damn sure full of doubt
Get A piece here a piece there from who knows where so why care
Just do it you do it thats what you share.... cause there's a reason

Chorus:
There's a reason there's something I gotta say
Don't know why put I just gotta play
If I don't do it now it might get away
Don't put off for tomorrow
Just do it today,do it today, do it today

Instrumental Prelude

...cause there's a reason

Chorus:

Verse 3:

Just sat there stuck in the key of C
Looked around the place what was there to see
The place is a mess, it's a test to be best then all the rest
What the hell as least I'm being me....cause there's a reason

DRIVIN’ DOWN THE HIGHWAY IN MY PICK UP TRUCK

TRYING REAL HARD TO GET MY COURAGE UP

JUST FOUND OUT SHE’D BE AT THAT DANCE TONIGHT

PASSED ME BY JUST A COUPLE OF TIMES

SMILED AT ME AND MADE MY MIND

DANCE WITH A BIG OLE SMILE

SAW YOU WHEN YOU MOVED TO TOWN

JUST ABOUT A WEEK AGO

KNEW I HAD TO MEET YOU

BEFORE MY HEART EXPLODES

CHORUS

DANCIN IS WHAT SHE WANTS TO DO

DANCIN IS WHAT I GOT TO DO

IF I WANT TO MEET THAT GIRL TONIGHT

Lunch With A Fat Woman

Verse 1

As we meet tonight

our time for another session

The blends just right

and the stress it lessens

We’ll meet at the yard

Scully has some incense burning

Playing’s not so hard

when you have such a yearning

Chorus:

The time goes by

the band plays on

Join me for lunch

lunch with a fat woman

Verse 2

Though we’re not the same

in thought and situation

When we play together

it’s such a fine vibration

So relax, enjoy my friends

get into the tune

Our jamming time together

will end all too soon

Chorus:

Verse 3

It was hard to get

where we are today

A little rough and rocky

but an easy price to pay

So we’ll part our ways

after another session

We’ll meet back next time

with a new progression

About Us

Meet the Band

Joe Santangelo
Drummer

Joe has played with both Jeff and Mike in previous bands. He also played in Area 51. Known for his ability to stay in the pocket, Joe’s main focus is to keep the tempo steady with a precise touch which comes from years of honing his skills.

Although quite comfortable being in the background behind his set, he has no problem belting out a tune while playing drums. Joe is also an accomplished song writer penning words and music on some of our originals. He loves the line up in Crushing Myrna because of his connection with his bandmates,it’s like they know what each other will do before they do it.

They have been together since December of 2010 and have developed into a group that improves with every

session. Joe and the guy’s are on a roll and there’s no stoppin’ them.

Mike Alpi
Guitarist

Mike began playing guitar in the summer of 1977. After countless hours of jamming and practicing at his childhood home with various local musicians, Mike joined his first band, CM2, a combination of jazz fusion and hard rock. He then ventured into untouched territory playing in an alternative/metal, all-originals band, Tribal

Essence. Mike also played in other bands Stay Lost and My Favorite Mistake before moving to Florida from Long Island.

After his arrival in Florida, his co-worker Joe Santangelo asked if he’d like to join a band he was playing drums in called Not Tuna. This brought him in another direction and helped him hone his vocal skills.

Mike and Joe then decided to form their own band and called upon Joe’s old bandmate, bass player Jeff Kemper. Hence, Crushing Myrna was born. After playing many gigs performing cover songs, they went into the studio and recorded their first original CD. This self-titled recording turned out to be an eclectic mix of different genres, with no song sounding the same.

Crushing Myrna’s second CD, Lunch with a Fat Woman, was released in 2016. They approached this recording thinking they’d figure out which particular genre they fit in, but it turned out to be even more eclectic than their first CD.

Jeff Kemper
Bass

Jeff Kemper began playing bass in high school in New Jersey. ‘early music was rock with a Jazz flair – a horn section was added and satisfied creativity through the high school years.

After graduating university in Florida, Jeff contacted the drummer/brother of a friend and the beginnings of the band Blue Logic was formed.

After releasing 2 cds, Jeff and Joe, the drummer, broke off and formed Crushing Myrna, expanding on original material sprinkled with their take on covers for live shows. Adding Mike on guitars added the something extra that sparked a string of original material and 2 well-received cd releases.

Having gelled as a writing team, Jeff, Joe and Mike continue to feed off of each other in creativity and continue also to create their eclectic music for their fans.
