about

Better Ride Aberdeen, South Dakota

Better Ride started in 2010 as a writing project that included people with developmental disabilities. After lyrics of a handful of songs were written we decided to put the words to music. We now perform at conferences, conventions, fairs, festivals, coffee houses and pubs.
Anyone can join our band at any time as a result we have about 15 core members and over 100 members at large.

Track Name: Rock 'em Down
Two thousand and eleven it all started in Aberdeen
Armed with pens and journals we created Hope of Dreams
And on every Thursday we party with Art & Music
Our stories came to life as we fused it.

So we became the band Better Ride
and we'll perform our songs all the time.
From town to town we're gonna rock 'em down
And we'll just keep on writing our songs.

Our doors are always open we add members all the time.
Anyone can join us and sing our tasty rhymes
'Cuz now we're a big family in places near and far.
You can join just sing to this guitar.
Track Name: Burning Heart
Every time you walk my way my heart starts on fire
Your beauty sparks a flame, mercury rising higher
Embers flying through the air
Starting fires everywhere
and cool water cannot quench my burning heart
Burning heart

You take my burning heart and pour on gasoline
Exploding, imploding, exciting all my dreams
Yearning for them to come true
Passion burning me and you
and cool water cannot quench my burning heart
Burning heart

Raging inferno in my chest.
Can you put my burning to rest?
Or will I burn to ash in the cold night air?
I need your love because I swear that…
cool water cannot quench my burning heart
Burning heart
Track Name: The Old House
All the cats played the yard, Great Gramma played the tunes
on the dining room piano as we sang.
Grampa tuned up Harleys and Hand and Foot was played
in garage as all our voices rang.

The old house is gone but the memories live on.
It's gone but the memories live on. But the memories live on

Mashed Potatoes on my plate, stuffing and turkey
Dean and Keith were wrestling on the floor.
Roger kept on playin’ on his video games
and then I asked my gramma for some more.

The old house is gone but the memories live on
It's gone but the memories live on. But the memories live on

Great Gramma and Great Grampa are now home with the Lord
But we'll be all together once again.
We'll join them in the old house and sing and eat and smile
With all our family and friends.
Track Name: I Moved
Do you read (x7) the newspaper? Sometimes I do. (x2)
Did you hear (x7) the news? I Moved. (x10)
Although the water worries me, I moved to Allentown
to be near my family in Pennsylvania.
The forrest and the mountains and the grocery store keep me motivated
in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Allentown Eastern Pennsylvania.
Hoo Hoo (x5)
It’s a little different (x3) this time.
It’s a little different (x2) every time. (all x2)
They’re Building tall buildings (x16)
I’m worried about something (x2)
They’re building tall buildings ( x12)
These rent hikes are alarming but I like the mountains here.
Do you read (x7) the newspaper? Sometimes I do. (x2)
Did you hear the news? I Moved. (x10)
to be near my family in Pennsylvania,
in Allentown Eastern Pennsylvania.
Hoo Hoo (x5)
Track Name: Freeze Dried
Freeze Dried Fruit around the fire. No gluten, Cuz I’m a buyer at Ken’s.
It all depends, maybe Kesslers or Bargain Mart.

We like Freeze Dried Fruit. it is the absolute best snack to have at a fire.
It is my one desire. Freeze Dried Fruit.
Track Name: Dark Rose Petal
Dark Rose Petal see him swagger down my street.
How does he keep right in the middle when he doesn't have any feet.
Must be one of those flowers endued with awesome powers.
I'll crush him with my pickup and make him obsolete.
Dark Rose Petal

I drive up with my pickup to crush that little rose.
He wraps me with his thorny vines and wiggles up my nose.
I sneeze him out onto the ground he sneaks away without a sound.
I push my power pedal to chase him where he goes.
Dark Rose Petal

Dark Rose Petal he’s a worthy foe.
You’re dealing’ with a villain you must overthrow
You better be careful when he starts to grow.
You will lose control.
Dark Rose Petal

Pullover and park my pickup to put an end to this fight.
I figure that I should not waste a picture perfect night.
Rose, he taunts me with his vines
but I'm too busy planning party time.
My pals begin to pop in but my rose takes flight.
Dark Rose Petal
Track Name: Wagon Ride
I want to lose weight really fast.
I’m gonna go for a walk just around the block two times so I can lose weight again.
So I can lose weight (x2) So I can lose twenty pounds.

Riding in the wagon hopefully Dan will be pulling me again but I know what it is for the day.
Wagon Ride, we’re on a wagon ride at the Fair. We’re on a Wagon Ride
I want to give wagon rides to little kids when they’re out to the fair today and I get the wagon out
for the little ones (x3) and then..
Wagon Ride, we’re on a wagon ride at the Fair. We’re on a Wagon Ride
Crystal would you let me give them a wagon ride
But I do real, but I do the, but I’d be very good.
Wagon Ride, we’re on a wagon ride at the Fair. We’re on a Wagon Ride

If I have a wagon ride I love the part of it ‘cuz it’s my favorite,
Because it’s my fav, It’s my favorite thing to do.
I want to pull them. Better hang on tight today
‘Cuz I’m gonna go fast (x2) gonna go really fast.
