about

Tick after Tock wasn't supposed to turn out this way .. I wanted to go deep but not back to the Disco dance era. I swear songs take on a life of their own in the recording studio. This one wants to hit the dance floor. Sorry, that's why I became a musician .. I can't dance. After I wrote this one I halted production on the "Parade" album. This song just had to kick off the album .. as with all singles that are married to an album: you'll find more extensive song notes on the album's song page .. xoRJ

lyrics

Tick tock - tick tock
Tick tock - tick tock

So cool .. so caramel
My favourite glue ..
Sirens in my closet
You're the mess I'm sticky to ..
My kind .. hey, trouble
The crow at my door
In distress, a fabumess
Femme fatale I can't ignore

You make the time for me
You never get me wrong
I never make believe I'll stay away too long

Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick - after tick - after tock

Tick tock - tick tock

So rock .. so candy
Mackintosh toffee to go
Building cars to drive on Mars
More than afterglow ..
Be tart, out orange me
Be why they took Tang to the Moon
Luna rocks your Terry socks .. static cling was made for you ..

You make the time for me
You never get me wrong
I never make believe
I'll stay away too long

Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick - after tick - after tock

Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick -after tick - after -
Tick after tock .. I won't miss a beat
Tick after tock .. you can count on me
Baby I owe you and if eternal's what you want
I am tick -after tick - after tock

A - E - I - O - U and sometimes why?
'Cause you are hot
I am tick - after tick - after tock

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

July 2022. After seven full-length releases and fifteen singles, we decided to get adventurous. We're currently putting the finishing touches on album #8 which we've decided to release on vinyl, a first for us. We've chosen the top nine best-selling songs from the last four albums as well as one new unreleased track. All remixed and remastered. Expect two new singles prior to this release. xoRJ ... more
