Description
My first complete collaboration, very grateful to Bageltogo (http://www.macjams.com/artist/bageltogo) for such an amazing track. Hoping the lyrics and mix do it justice. Turns out I'm not Bobby Womack, but this was fun to do. All comment welcome as always, many thanks for the listen!

Lyrics
Music/Track: Bageltogo
Lyrics/Voice: BoiAfrica

Shake a leg now honey cuz we know
Summer don't last forever,
And if you shake it just right on time,
Be a jukebox down the line
Mirror, mirror tell me
Is my reflection what I'm feeling? you said
"Girl if you keep him waiting,
Plenty bees to satisfy!"

Baby gotta keep it moving,
Cuz there ain't no time for crying or leaving!

And just like a bad love song
I take pleasure for desire,
Leave me hungry when he come around,
Keep on burning all my fire,
Ain't no crime to love him
Just a crime to look and touch because,
My baby got that sugar, poison
Deep inside of me!

But I know I can keep it moving,
Cuz there ain't no funk in crying or lying!

My baby's got style,
He got eyes so wide they wanna kiss the sky
And I don't know why
Why he treat me so bad
Leave me sad,
When all I want is my man!

That wind is gonna keep on blowing,
If he won't treat you right then why ain't you going?

And just then the Spring come 'round
Free me from all the shiver,
I' seen the gaslight he can throw,
So I'm rolling down that, river,
If you fetch me running back
To that man from Alabama, tell me
"Girl when you lose your place in time
You put your living on the line!"

But I know I can keep it moving,
Cuz there ain't no funk in crying or dying!
No...no...
I'll just drive on, drive on
I think I'll drive on
Until I get there,
I think I'll drive on!

Oh yeah
Yes I agree that the music could be brought up in the mix, Mr. Bagels jam is quite good. Sometimes to my ear the vocals wander a tiny bit out of key but your voice is perfect for this and your vocal lines are right on time. The doubled vocals come in at just the right moment, This is some good vintage sounding soul and it might be worth it to put some polishing touches on it. Oh, yeah, if you talk to Mr. Bagel tell him to leave me a message cuz I also did a collab with him but I couldnt get in touch with him after i finally finished it. Thanks and keep up the good work.

I know Mr. Bagels is totes awesome, he can def lay down a funky beat! I think you're right on the vocals, I'm definitely open to some polish as soon as Mr. Bagels and I are back in contact! Ditto if you hear from him!
