About This Song


A true story about my band. I played in a band when I was young. After a while we had some success in our local area, we were even close to get a record deal, but then life had other plans. After more than 30 years, we started again and it is a lot of fun. This recording was played, produced and sung by myself - nothing professional, it's just for fun! Those kind of songs you just have to write.

Time of our Life

Written by Frank Renfordt

ime of our life

With a fifty dollar drum kit
and a Japanese Les Paul
we build up our dream
of a major stadium tour
Andrew played the Hammond
and Hank learned to treat the bass
and our music was some kind of
direct to your face
pretty loud
pretty hard
and it sucked
but for us it sounded cool
and it rocked

Cans of beer and guitar riffs
cigarettes and weedy whiffs
crazy crowds and flashing lights
pretty girls and party nights
young guys on overdrive
Time of our life

Rehearsing day by day
playing gigs each Friday night
just to see down at the front row
how the chicks were going wild
But we failed to get a contract
much to proud to make a move
after all the band broke up
and life lost part of its groove
We got married
we got slaved
and we got bored
amps and drums they got sold
or kept stowed

Cans of beer and guitar riffs
cigarettes and weedy whiffs
crazy crowds and flashing lights
pretty girls and party nights
young guys on overdrive
Time of our life

Once we listened to the old tapes
to refresh our memories
we felt like picking our axes
and reviving our dreams

Cans of bear and golden hits
in the front row your own kids
crazy crowds and flashing lights
pretty girls and party nights
young at heart on overdrive
Time of our life
