about

Nothing comes close to this one in a live setting ... I remember when Marty first played the opening riff for Malcolm, our label's CEO ... he looked at Malcolm, gave him the nod and ripped into it. Pure joy. It took me about half an hour to write this one, recording all the tracks on my trusty Tascam porta - 05 recorder ... rehearsed it the next day and played it the next night. I've collected a lot of board tapes over the years but don't have this one anywhere. Shame.

lyrics

I wrote a ballad, it’s gonna make you cry
I won’t play it tonight, much to your delight
And while I’m at it, I’m gonna break some rules
I’m blowing this coop, won’t be back tonight, yeah

Baby, you’ll get what you need
You’re knocking so hard on the door
Maybe you’ll get what you need
I just need more


‘Cause I want to see you sweat
Honey, I want to see you sweat
Sugar, I, I got to see you sweat…see you sweat


You’re like an addict the way you chase me down
All over this town, baby, burning up both sides
You need the action the way I need your groove
Honey, playing with you is like drinking liquid fire, yeah, yeah, yeah

I’m running rampant, hey; I can feel your heat
Said Angel, you’re sweet but don’t give me no jive
You’re not a dealer, you’re just a card in play
Start walking this way, baby, keep your mouth shut tight, yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah, get down and mean it ...
