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 porta05 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

Yeah -

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

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 got to see you sweat
Sugar, I - I got to see you sweat…see you sweat

See you sweat - see you sweat
Sweat, sweat, sweat, sweat ..

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

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 - I said

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

See you sweat - see you sweat -
Yeah, get down and mean it ...

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. "Sweet Tooth" is currently home to at least six tracks that will appear on our upcoming seventh release entitled "Piece Of Your Ghost". I'm currently close to release of two new singles for our "Or In Cyprus" collection. Just one release to date. Lonely soul ... needs pals. xoRJ ... more
