Big News I Lyrics

The fog is rolling in, the tide is high
Diane's as fat can be, aye, Captain, aye
The guests seem more than pleased, how is the wine?
We shall be underway on the by and by
Ahead one third, ahead two thirds
Full ahead flank and out from the belly
Of the whale came a prophet, Amen
Go shoot the moon, the sun, the Great Divide
I believe there's a storm a' brewin', a nine crows at nine o'clock nigh
Dutch man at the mizzenmast six harpies are singin' to the Lee
I believe she's going down, I believe we're gonna die die die
Fortune tellers make a killing nowadays, me, oh my
Howdy Doody's past the house of Aquarius
Bring me more whiskey and rye
Big news from the party boat
Oh sir, do not distress, the food is fine
Oh, but I must confess, I do find the wine a wee bit dry
Fifteen men on a dead man's chest, yo ho ho and a bottle of rye

Drink and the devil had done for the rest, she's sunk full fathom, five five five
Fortune tellers make a killing nowadays, me, oh my
Howdy Doody's past the house of Aquarius
Bring me more whiskey and rye
Big news from the party boat

Clutch is a rock band from Germantown, Maryland, United States. They have been playing together since the early 1990s. They released their first EP, Pitchfork, in October of 1991.

Each of Clutch's albums is marked by its own distinct and cohesive sound and the band's musical style may be said to have migrated from hardcore punk to hard rock and blues over the course of their career. Clutch's lyrics, at first angry and serious in tone, had by the time of 1993's Transnational Speedway League become characterized by intelligence, wordplay, and often humor (although comedy is not usually the focus). Their songs make frequent reference to history, mythology, popular culture, and religion. Bam Margera often uses Clutch songs in his MTV show "Viva La Bam."

The members of Clutch often perform on albums with other bands as well as side projects. JP played drums on Five Horse Johnson's album The Mystery Spot. Neil Fallon sang some backing vocals for Dozer's Beyond Colossal album as well as a side project called The Company Band. The band also has a side band they perform in called The Bakerton Group. The music consists of all instrumental jams with a blues feel to it.

Clutch has often performed more than 100 shows per year since their formation. They are managed by Jack Flanagan out of NYC.
