Story behind the song
While chatting with a friend on Facebook, he shared a comment that included the line, "Keep the boom boom on the hush hush." He didn't recall typing it but I do. It was such an off the wall comment, that it immediately got stuck between my ears. The song almost wrote itself, around that single line.
Lyrics
Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush No need to advertise This is between, just you and me Not for them other guys Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush Now doncha open yer mouth Keep yer lips from flappin, lock 'em up tight Or everythings gonin south Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush Workin the street Late one night I got invited to party With another man's wife I walked her home She laid me down Before I left in the mornin She warned, "Don't breath a sound!" Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush Cuz if ya blow my cover Yer gonna lose more than a friend my friend Yer gonna lose one sweet lover Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush Keep it tween just us two And I'll see ya again tomorrow night If you ain't got nothing better to do Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush I rolled into town And before I could blink I got a text that read Drop by for a drink When I got to the joint Everybody was high The host took me aside And said kinda sly Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush No need to spread this round Don't spoil the fun for everyone By sharin what's goin down Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush Just keep this to yourself Don't let a soul know what's happenin It could be bad for someone's health Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush The Washington DC establishment Is really havin a ball Shreddin our social safety nets And affordable healthcare for all They do their despicable deeds Late at night when we're asleep Then they turn to one another And say, "Shhh! Don't whisper a peep!" Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush No need to let this out If the press catches wind, it would be the end Of our party without a doubt Keep the boom boom, on the hush hush Now don't anyone let this leak Whistleblowin could land you in prison And the rest of us would be up a creek So, keep the boom boom, on the hush hush
