Through storms and stresses this band did roam.
Dive bars did bless us, the road our home.
Four boys from E-town, we left our mark.
Gasoline our sound, the stage our spark.

But we had to go and so we did.
Six years since a show, no farewell gig.
So friends we can say, this New Year's Eve
Doc, Lan, Nash and Jay, we roll up our sleeves.

Once more round the track, the speakers will suffer...
The Sparrows are back, let's burn down this fucker.
