about

Lolly. Seven’s not enough, give her eight days a week. Fuck. Sorry for the language. But fuck. I’m about to lose my job. I’ve been late for work every day this week. And the boss is super pissed. It’s grunt work, shovelling cement, but it pays well. And it was a pretty easy gig until Lolly came along. Ah, Lolly. Now my back screams and I walk around like a zombie. The boss pushed me extra hard today. Maybe because it’s Friday and we’re behind schedule. Who knows. There’s that magic word. I’ve been waiting all week for that word. Friday. I don’t work tomorrow and it’s the start of a long weekend.
And it’s payback time. Lolly’s in for it. When I get home.

Oh, she’ll be waiting on the front steps. I haven’t given her a key although she’s spent more than a few nights here. In a row. I was late for work this morning but I managed to kick her out before leaving. Told her I’d be late getting home after work. And I will be. I’m going to pop in to Mr. Mike’s Steak House and order the works. Have a beer. Build up my strength. No time to cook when Lolly’s around. Hell, a guy’s gotta eat sometime. And it’s Friday, the start of a long weekend. Lord have mercy ... xoRJ

lyrics

Lolly - yeah, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day … whew …
Yeah, yeah, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day

I gotta go to work, I ain’t been to sleep
Lolly want to do it … do it all day
Seven’s not enough, give her eight days a week
Lolly want to do it … do it all day

Ooh, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day … oh, my
Yeah, yeah, Lolly - Lolly want to do it all day

Says “take it easy” … and easy means some more
Lolly want to do it … do it all day
Lolly wants a snack, she locking all the doors
Lolly want to do it … do it all day

Ooh, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day … oh, my …
Yeah, yeah, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day

I been late for work every day this week
Always wanting more
I try to leave, Lolly’s locking all the doors

whew … oh my my, yeah yeah

Lolly - yeah, yeah, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day
Lolly - ooh, yeah, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day

I’m an easy target, arrow in a tree
Lolly want to do it … do it all day
Strips away the bark, nothin’ left of me
Lolly want to do it … do it all day

Ooh, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day
Lolly - ooh, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day

Ooh, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day
Lolly - yeah, yeah, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day
Ooh, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day - yeah, yeah
Ooh, Lolly — Lolly want to do it all day


I gotta go to work, I ain’t been to sleep
Seven’s not enough, give her eight days a week
Says “take it easy”, easy means some more
Lolly want a snack, she’s locking all the doors … whew …

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. Our seventh full-length release "Piece Of Your Ghost" becomes available on June 18th, 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release or two. September sounds good. Summer's coming! Time to kick a few ghosts around ... Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
