Lyrics
well u say you want a guy who knows the karate
i dont know the karate but i know kung fu
and if you really wanna learn it
i'll show you a move or two

and you say you want a guy who likes the beach boys
well i like the beach boys and the beatles too
and if you wanna come over tonight
i'll play a few records for you

well it might be true
and you could be lyin'
but either way
i wouldnt mind tryin'
so i'll give it a shot
with you

well come on in n sit down
take a load off sugar
it's so good to have you here
lemme get you a beer
put your feet up, relax
lemme get to know you

then you say you got a man
wait okay maybe three
and youre hopin that it doesn't make a difference to me
i say well let me think it over honey
i think its probably okay

well it might be true
You could be lyin'
but either way
i wouldnt mind tryin'
so i'll give it a shot
with you

Ridd, Man you are so right, strumming pattern much like "Always Afternoon". Much more Brian Wilson than mine, that's for sure. Love the crazy falsettos. Kills when the distorted bass cuts in. Takes off in a much more alt rock direction. Sick crunch on that one. LOVE the lick that kicks in at about 2:35! Massive. DL!

I like The Beach Boys and The Beatles too! But I also like this an awful lot. That's a wild electric guitar sound! Just today I ordered a Snowball based just on the sound I hear you getting from it. Downloaded!

clever concept dude. great to see you back to posting. great lyrics. love the 'oooooh' backups and the john cougar percussion lol. love when the crunch comes in and the conversational turn the phrasing takes on the second verse with the 'take a load off sugar' line. one of my favorites of yours. i'll be happy to hear this come around on the ipod. great stuff.

I think you know what I'm saying.

Great tune Ridd. My hand is a kung-fu grip, kung-fu plastic grip! Glad to have another super original tune from you.

No rough edges here
Man, this song has a little bit of everything. Reminds me of Cake in a few places.

Not blowing smoke, this is the best tune I've heard so far this year. Hope o see you around more often.

Reminds me of Weezer some. Very nice vocals & harmonies. Conversational lyrics tell a story.
I like the guitar break. Whoever spends the 99 cents is the dummy in my book. Dude 's gotta gun.

Brilliant,
in every way! I hope that people hear this song, I know I'll be chatting it up, you Ridd have an extraordinary flare for developing the musicality of a song, you would make a great producer, besides being a remarkable songwriter/singer and musician! Great post!!!!!!!!!!!

fun tune!
I enjoyed this a lot. Fun lyrics, good build and harmonies - reminds me of Fountains of Wayne (Stacy's Mom). Nicely done, thanks for giving me a little boost this evening :-)

Inventive, catchy
Hi Ridd. Really inventive, catchy, highly listenable song. Like the way it builds and love the tone of the Firebird when it gets a run. Great posting. Take care, Peter.
