about

Stolen from Jett and the boys ... and added April 14th ... we'll work on it and see if it's a keeper ... certainly goes well with the next two.

lyrics

Uh huh -

Old Joe Boudreau had a still on the hill
With the ‘G’ men and ’T’ men just sniffing around
When a couple kids went blind
And another couple died
They knew they had to find him quick and take the man

Take him down - take the man down
Take him down - that’s the only way they do it
When Old Joe missed the curve ‘cuz his brakes just wouldn’t work
They knew they’d finally found a way to take the man down
Take the man down …

Uh huh -

Tony was the king of the sex and drug type thing
Get high all day on China White and play with his gun
When he shot his self a cop
After shooting up the town
They knew they had to find him quick and take the man down

Take him down - take the man down
Take him down - that’s the only way they do it
When a girl he used to beat cooked him up his final treat
They knew they’d finally found a way to take the man down
Take the man down …

Uh huh -

If you step out of song, you’re dead, right or wrong
You’ll cover up your tracks and keep an ear to the ground
When the morning finds you shot down
Like a dog out in the street
You’ll know they finally found a way to take the man down

Take him down - take the man down
Take him down - that’s the only way they do it
You cover up your tracks and keep an ear to the ground
In the end they’re gonna find a way to take the man down

Take him down - take the man down
Take him down - that’s the only way they do it
When the morning finds you fenced up like a mongrel in the pound
You know they finally found a way to take the man down
Take the man down

Uh huh -
Take the man down - take the man down
Uh huh -
Take the man down - take the man down
Uh huh -
Take the man down

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
