Lyrics
I had a gun-fighter attitude to blow you away,
With the smile of a young girl on confirmation day.
Always accessory after the fact
Watchin’ the bullets fly, I was watchin’ my back...

A private procession in a private Holy Land,
Just an obsession from another man.
I’d like to do the things that he did
With a smile, like Billy The Kid

‘Cos I’ll take my revenge
In my own good time, baby, baby
I’ll close my books,
l’ve opened up my mind.

I used to spend my redundant afternoons all alone,
I was tired, I was confused, I was hanging on the telephone.
Then she called up she said, “Look what I seen…
…switch on Channel 17”

There’s a private procession in a private Holy Land,
Just an obsession from another man.
I’d like to do the things that he did
With a smile, like Billy The Kid

‘Cos I’ll take my revenge
In my own good time, baby, baby
I’ll close my books,
l’ve opened up my mind.

I said I’ll take my revenge in my own good time, baby, baby
I’ll close my books, l’ve opened up my mind.
(Said this is what I did)
I said I’ll take my revenge in my own good time, baby, baby
I’ll close my books, l’ve opened up my mind...

Billy The Kid
Good vocs with plenty of attitude. I like the groove, and it's anchored well by a really nice bass line. Backups vocs are a nice touch.

Thanks Dave

Glad you like it - it was difficult to choose a genre; the bass makes it unusual and the inclusion of the girls was a tough choice, but in the end in all kinda works in it's own quirky way.

Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment.

Cool rockin' tune. Love that lead line. Wacky tone works for me. Funky bass and righteous lead vocal. Solid, pro-quality tune.

Ha ha!

"Righteous" - good word! Yes, the lead is wacky but hopefully memorable. Thanks for checking us out and describing BTK as pro.

Cheers!

i was wondering when we'd get another re-al post
and you don't disappoint. say it again, if simple minds are still playing (and I think they are) they wish they sound like you. also, i want the girls. where'd you get them?

Girls - Not For Hire...

...they gave their services for free. They're nice, that way (ahem!)

Where Simple Minds would use keys, we stuff a mad git riff in there to shake it up a bit. Great to know you're still diggin' out sounds, T.

Cheers!
