about

The Brian Wood-talk-box mix.

This song was conceived of and with a well known audio looper; the test impulse being the song's main bass line hook as sung by what's-his-name. Though familiar enough, new melodies started attaching themselves to it until opportunity allowed it to be rendered as an 8 voice a-Capella song-thing (8 separate audio tracks were quite precious back when the earth was young and you had to shell out $100 for 20 minutes of recording time). A midi version with drums followed. (please stop). Enter the big E; the Atomic-Drum's-of-Frank knocking it out. Poof. Mr. Brian Templeton summoned the spirits of both r AND b, and poof, poof. Lookie here. And then.."Has that guy got a talking tube in his mouth?" why, yes he does, and "How do you 'dance' a scream?". How indeed.

lyrics

Well I got a girl and she's so sweet to me.
I got a girl and she's so sweet to me.
She give me honey love and sugar in my tea.

When you see my gal you're gonna shake and shiver in your shoes.
When you see my gal you're gonna shake and shiver in your shoes.
Throw away your troubles, singing them lonesome blues.

She'll make you hop, shimmy.
Scream out for Jimmy.
Get ready boy, get ready.

Make you drop, give in
Leave the town you live in
Get ready boy, get ready for a brain seizer.
Gonna put my arms around her and squeeze her.

Now when you see her sweet down the street you're gonna jump to your feet.
when you see her sweet down the street you're gonna jump to your feet.
Gonna love her from her head down to her feet.

Gotta tell you fellas, stay away from my gal.
Gotta tell you fellas, stay away from her now.
If you don't I'm gonna make you blue so black and blue.

She'll make you hop (Get ready for)
Shimmy (something gonna move you)
Scream out for Jimmy (Something gonna move you)
Get ready boy (boy she gonna move you)

Drop (Keep steady boy)
Give in (Don't you play the fool boy)
Leave the town you live in (Don't you play the fool boy)
Get ready boy (Don't you break the rule)
Get ready for a brain seizer (for a brain seizer)
Gonna put my arms around her and squeeze her
Come on now, come on now.
