When I was a young boy
I was workin' for the state
I wasn't makin' much money
I was stayin' out late

Might go down at nighttime
Played music in the bars
Take my breaks out
Underneath the stars

I was makin' some noise
I was a workin' boy
Up at the top of my voice
Sayin',"Look at me mama, I'm makin' some noise"

I had to rock the boat, I had to shake the tree
To see what'd fall, down on me
I thought "Maybe I can make it if I never give in
I been down before, I ain't goin' down again"

I'm makin' some noise
I been a worried boy
Up at the top of my voice
Sayin',"Look at me mama, I'm makin' some noise"

From across the canyon a guitar plays
Through an amplifier on a long delay
It was an old melody, I recognized the song
I had an amplifier too, so I played along

I'm makin' some noise
I'm still a working boy
At the top of my voice
Sayin',"Look at me mama, I'm makin' some noise"

I'm makin' some noise
I been a long gone boy
At the top of my voice
Sayin',"Look at me mama, I'm makin' some noise"

I'm makin' some noise
I'm makin' some noise
