TWO EYES SEEN



jump and shout
sit and listen

go ahead and do just what you will

you can even get up and go home baby
i'll be here singing still
i'll be here singing still

i know a man
up in cleveland

he keeps a hundred dollars
in his shoe

and a black cat bone

he'll try to put on you
he'll try to put on you

well if it's one way or if it's another...



keep your eye on the joker

or keep it on the queen of spades

either way i'll be gone babe

by time the sunset fades

by time the sunset fades

what you've only just imagined

or what you've with your own two eyes seen

i suppose the truth is somewhere

it's somewhere in between

somewhere in between

Ha! "in between copyright"... Yeah, that's probably where the truth is.

Man, that is just living, breathing, funk. Or something. Whatever it is, it is right.

All good songs start with a nose whistle... ¬_¬

I love the noise you get out of your stuff with only three of you as well, real skill in making a big sound with few instruments. Killer voice and style as well on the voice there: really nice sound, harks back a-la-old school blues kings who only cared about the groove and didnt care bout the intracacies: love that. Never heard a tuba carry such a funky riff either : tell him well done from me.

Good job flapjax ... great job!
