Shuffle Song Of The Day (11/2/18): “Young New England” By Transit

“Young New England” is a song by the Boston area pop punk band Transit from their 2013 album of the same name. Being that they’re from the area, I’ve been listening to this group for years before their eventual breakup back in 2016. This song talks about something I think we all, especially those in the Boston area, can appreciate: Being young and in the work force trying to string together a couple bucks so you and your friends can get fucked up in your spare time. I love the music video because it shows plenty of iconic Boston landmarks, and I’ve never understood why the chorus of this song alone hasn’t made it become more popular. “If you’re too drunk to walk along the streets of cobblestone, you know Boston never drinks alone. Boston never drinks alone” should be the battle cry of this city, seeing as that’s basically all we do. Drinking is fucking awesome, and this song perfectly exemplifies what drinking in this city is like. Maybe it’ll catch on eventually, but until then I’ll just keep jamming out to it everytime I’m shitfaced, and now you can too.

LYRICS

If you’re too drunk to walk along

The streets of cobblestone

You know Boston never drinks alone,

Boston never drinks alone

If you’re too drunk to walk along

The streets of cobblestone

You know Boston never drinks alone,

Boston never drinks alone.

I carried you into the house

You wrapped your arms around my neck.

Thought they’d never let me go,

I guess they did, I guess they did

And that night we drove around

And we laughed and cried

And you cried a bit

I kept you until you slept

I walked down your steps with no regrets

If you’re too drunk to walk along

The streets of cobblestone

You know Boston never drinks alone,

Boston never drinks alone.

If you’re too drunk to walk along

The streets of cobblestone

You know Boston never drinks alone,

Boston never drinks alone.

And we sing until the sun comes up

And we drink our glasses dry

Every skyline every street sign

We don’t stop risking our short time

Always working through the weekend

An uphill battle for a few good nights

Over and over again

Young New England

Over and over again

Young New England

We traded in our small towns

For those big city dreams

With your head up on my shoulder

And my heart under lock and key

Lets take the time to look around

And forget what we missed

And I walk back up your steps with no regrets,

I got no regrets

If you’re too drunk to walk along

The streets of cobblestone

You know Boston never drinks alone,

Boston never drinks alone.

If you’re too drunk to walk along

The streets of cobblestone

You know Boston never drinks alone,

Boston never drinks alone.

And we sing until the sun comes up

And we drink our glasses dry

Every skyline every street sign

We don’t stop risking our short time

Always working through the weekend

An uphill battle for a few good nights

Over and over again

Young New England

Over and over again

Young New England

Sing until the sun comes up!

Ohhh Young New England!

Drink until our glass is dry!

Ohhh Young New England!

Every skyline every street sign!

Ohhh Young New England!

Don’t stop risking your short time!

Ohhh Young New England!

And we sing until the sun comes up

And we drink our glasses dry

Every skyline every street sign

We don’t stop risking our short time

Always working through the weekend

An uphill battle for a few good nights

Over and over again

Young New England

Over and over again

Young New England

Over and over again

Young New England
