The Bushwick Book Club is not your run of the mill book club. When we read books, we also want to write songs about them. And when we write songs, we like to perform them for an audience. So we book shows, and invite an audience to read with us!

Track Name: Mike Votava - The Optometrist Convention

Were you thinking of me
When you were fucking in outer space
Sadly it doesn’t matter
I will love you anyways

Racing to the hospital
Driving so hysterical
Breathing toxins trapped inside
I am dead but you’re still alive

You must have been kind of crazy
For ever wanting to marry me
Now you have lots of money
And you’re the king of optometry

Celebrate our honeymoon
I promise I’ll lose weight for you
Magic fingers on your spine
I am dead but you’re still alive

The crowd is going wild
Billy is taking a leak
Montana Wildhack
Is fixing something to eat

Billy I adore you
I am so happy hear come the tears
I’m sorry that I’m a fatty
I can’t stop eating Three Musketeers

Cadillac El Dorado Coupe De Ville
Slumped against the steering wheel
Unpleasant moment lodged in time
I am dead and you’re alive

Cancel the optometrist convention
Only one survived the Sugar Bush Mountain Side
