A couple of layers of common rolled roofing would help, you'd staple ot over the studs and then finally layer over that with a layer of 5/8" fire code drywall. That should  give you some fair soundproofing, but not to the degree of Mass Loaded Vinyl and soundclips, but now we're talking some cash outlay. Hope this helps Phil.
