about

23/25 ~ Ram-a-lama girl had me pinned in there .. oh, yes. Ram-a-lama girls are out there I suppose. They’re like Shasti girls .. Irish gypsy temptresses. Much like those pesky Leprechauns. But nastier .. nasty Shasti. It’s like having a best friend and he’s protective of his sis. She’s deadly gorgeous and knows it. So she’s always teasing you, making you squirm ‘cause you’re nervous as hell. Always trying to avoid her .. at arm’s length. Very basic mix here on this #23. It’s Boxing Day night as I type this up. Two more songs to post before 2019 rolls around. I’m excited about 2019. Okay, the twin guitar parts are scratch still. Still no acoustic guitar. And no lead fills. A few doubled vocal lines are still missing. First take on vox as well. So yeah, a truckload of work to be done on this. This song came as a challenge after writing the Fa la la song. Two long-time friends challenged me to write a song with “Ram-a-lam-a ding dong.” I’m not sure how you feel about this one .. I have their home addresses if you’d like to pursue the matter further. Aw, life’s good, keep it coming .. xoRJ

lyrics

Come on out for a drink - maybe two
You’ve been cooped up too long
Maybe ask a girl for a dance
Or the band to let you up for a song

Had my back to the wall
Fumbling with my chair
Ten friends at a table
They looked at her like the only girl there

The room was loud - enjoying the crowd
Vibe was getting strong
No one I wanted to dance with
But when the band played “Tush” I sang along

Had my back to the wall
Or I’d have fallen right out of my chair
Ten friends at a table
She looked at me like the only one there

Bowl me over - make me sing
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times
Bowl me over - make me sing
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times

Hey!

Tongue tied .. a drink - maybe two
I’m in the spider’s lair
In a booth .. my back to the wall
Ram-a-lama girl had me pinned in there

With my back to the wall
Very much trapped in my chair
Ten friends said adios`
And ram-a-lama girl’s still sitting there ..

Bowl me over - make me sing
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times
Bowl me over - make me sing
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times
Bowl me over - make me sing
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times
Bowl me over - make me sing
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times

Hey!

Bowl me over - make me sing
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times
Bowl me over - make me sing
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times

Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times
Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times
Ram-a-lama d ..

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
