about

A funky, bluesy, rock tune inspired by the mighty Tower of Power.

lyrics

I-I-I-I ahhh, have the best of intentions
I-I-I-I ahhh, been working-all-night for your attention
Ohhh-you've been singing your song, all night lo-o-o-ong, lo-o-o-ong.

PRE-CHORUS #1
Nothing to lose, all you gotta do is choose, to make some stupid music tonight.

BRIDGE #1 (horn break)

Tried to blow her mind with something that she couldn't, comprehend.
Heard-it-in Hollywood, thought-it-would gotta-be-cool to say again.
I walked up to her on the street t-t-t-t-t-to-try my (Bb) liiiine.
Tongue-tripping on the way that's the-

PRE-CHORUS #1:
-thing that caught her eye, story of my life, that girls gonna break my heart tonight.

CHORUS #1:
denied, Some fish never-gonna bite
Missed this one but the water is fine, and I'm-a let it slide.
uptight, it's time to say good night.
You're not the oooone, and I'm gonna let it slide.

BRIDGE #1 (horn break)

Whipped and bruised Im a bloody mess, feels like I've been beaten.
That sirens song can be so-o-o-ooo strong
Only when I looked down did I discover I was bleeding.
And baby I've been bleeding all along

PRE-CHORUS #2:
You’re still singing your song, feels so wrong, one more try, and then I'm gone

DRUM BREAK:
Gotta make gotta make that stupid music, gotta work gotta work gotta work it out
Gotta get gotta get gotta get to movin, gotta let gotta let gotta let-it play out

CHORUS #2:
Baby we could swing, ignite, Start a fire
Yeah we could blow it up, But I'm gonna let it sliiiide.
CHORUS #1 / OUTRO
