The Rubens – The Best We Got

THE RUBENS are Brothers Sam, Elliott and Zaac Margin and good friend Scott Baldwin. ALTHOUGH THEY’VE ONLY BEEN PLAYING TOGETHER SINCE EARLY 2011, THEY HAVE ALREADY WON OVER A LEGION OF FANS WITH THEIR RICH, SOULFUL TAKE ON BLUES ROCK. Their debut single ‘Lay It Down’ struck a huge chord and saw them score the triple j Unearthed spot at Homebake before going on to hit #57 in triple j’s 2011 Hottest 100 poll. Since then these Menangle wunderkinds holed up in New York City and recorded their debut album with producer David Kahne (Regina Spektor, Paul McCartney, The Strokes).
Currently on a sold-out national tour (including memorable shows at The Forum Theatre in Melbourne and two Metro Theatre shows in Sydney) THE RUBENS seem to be on a dream run, with the band’s recently released debut, self-titled album coming in at #1 on the iTunes chart and an impressive #3 on the ARIA Album chart. The band’s video for ‘My Gun’ is also nominated for Best Video at the 2012 ARIA Awards. Not bad for a band that has been together just over a year.

The Rubens – The Best We Got Lyrics:
One more, more or less then we’re done
Can’t be sure if we had fun
Sweet sixteen been and gone
Eighteen next year then we’re done
Girls like me if they’re younger
But girls my age want guys older
Guess I’m just stuck in the middle
Between easies and girls unattainable

Yeah they say, these days are the best we got
What a tragic thought
And I try, and I try, not to waste this time
But it just flies by, the more I try

Slow down, don’t speak, say something
Line up, don’t cheat, stop staring
Sit down, shut up, start learning
Time’s up, get out start working

Yeah they say, these days are the best we got
What a tragic thought
And I try, and I try, not to waste this time
But it just flies by, the more I try

Yeah they say, these days are the best we got
What a tragic thought
And I try, and I try, not to waste
But it just flies by, the more I try
