Updated: Jul 13

Let me tell you about

local legend Doug Street

Founding member of

The Sackville Beats


Doug played lead guitar

and had a good flow

Got a bit thin on top

so he let the beard go


He’s been driving semis

these past few years

Hard on the waistline

drank too many beers


Come on give it up for ‘Main Street’

The unforgettable Doug Street

Let’s hear it for Sackville’s elites

The bad-ass Sackville Beats


Doug did a little time

for smuggling dope

Says it’s all good now

he’s back off the ropes


Groupies used to scream out

throw stuff on stage

Only action these days

occasional road rage


Come on give it up for ‘Main Street’

The unforgettable Doug Street

Let’s hear it for Sackville’s elites

The bad-ass Sackville Beats


Old rockers they die hard

rarely retreat

Therefore give a big hand

for Doug and The Beats


He longs for the lights

speakers full blast

Knows he’s not the same Doug

easily gets gassed


Beats talking reunion

a few gigs in metro

Dug out red bandana

to keep things retro


Come on give it up for ‘Main Street’

The unforgettable Doug Street

Let’s hear it for Sackville’s elites

The bad-ass Sackville Beats


Band rehearses weekends

in buddy’s garage

Tough to find roadies

to set up no charge


Band bangs out BTO

also the Stones

Beaten-up black Fender

still reverbs and moans


Come on give it up for ‘Main Street’

The unforgettable Doug Street

Let’s hear it for Sackville’s elites

The bad-ass Sackville Beats


Old rockers they die hard

rarely retreat

Therefore give a big hand

for Doug and The Beats


Back in the day they sang

eighties and back

Been practising some licks

off old eight-tracks


Doug trying to work on

pitch in his voice

Original singer’s gone

so he has no choice


Come on give it up for ‘Main Street’

The unforgettable Doug Street

Let’s hear it for Sackville’s elites

The bad-ass Sackville Beats


He knows he’s no Mick

but has a few tricks

Overdub and mix

might excite older chics


Remembers all the chords

riffs they should come

Practice will make perfect

speed improve some


Come on give it up for ‘Main Street’

The unforgettable Doug Street

Let’s hear it for Sackville’s elites

The bad-ass Sackville Beats
