about

Wrote this one when I was touring with Penguin, first recorded it with K.T. Rouge and now here it shows up again .. a bad penny perhaps. I'm not really sure what happened to the demo version recorded by the "Rouge" back in the day. It would be interesting to hear it again. The breakdown section is a refreshing addition to this tune and came about by accident really. I was outside messing with this and my roommate pulled up with Black Sabbath blasting on his car stereo. A riff was repeating itself and the noodling began. Altered the riff, threw it in and the rest is history. This song has proven itself live with three different line-ups performing it and the possibilities still seem endless. Hey Uncle Mal .. one for the "Jazzers". Hmm.

lyrics

I’ll search high, I’ll search low
I’ll sail the seven seas to find you
I’ll go from New York city to ‘Frisco Bay
Won’t rest until I’m there beside you.

Ooh, I gotta have you
Right here by my side
Ooh, I gotta have you
And there’s no place you can hide

I’ll take a fast train, an ocean liner
I’ll climb any mountain to find you
I’ll travel the Americas to Asia Minor
Won’t rest ‘til I’m there beside you.

Ooh, I gotta have you
Right here by my side
Ooh, I gotta have you
And there’s no place you can hide

‘Cause I’m a rover
The guy with the telescopic eye
Yeah, I’m a rover
Gonna getcha, gonna make you mine

Aww - fuck
Give it to me -

I’ll search high, I’ll search low
I’ll sail the seven seas to find you
I’ll go from New York city to ‘Frisco Bay
Won’t rest until I’m there beside you.

Ooh, I gotta have you
Right here by my side
Ooh, I gotta have you
And there’s no place you can hide

‘Cause I’m a rover
Yeah, I’m the guy with the telescopic eye
Yeah, I’m a rover
Gonna getcha, gonna make you
Gonna getcha, gonna make you

I’m a rover
Yeah, I’m the guy with the telescopic eye
Yeah, I’m a rover
Gonna getcha, gonna make you
Gonna getcha, gonna make you
Gonna getcha, gonna make you mine
Ha ha -

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
