Story behind the song
Inspired by Paul McCartney's offhand approach to great songs hidden away as B-sides. I took a similar view and literaly knocked this song together in about half an hour. The solo is no great shakes, but I think this is one of the catchiest tunes I've ever come up with. Horns and rhythm guitar are double-tracked with a tiny bit of delay to give them depth. Buy the CD!
Lyrics
I saw you the other day walking on down the street I said hey baby, what do you say looking so goddam sweet Well you looked at my face And you looked at my hands Looked at what I was wearing Looked me over once again What would be the benefit to hitch my wagon to your star What do you have in mind before this business goes too far Can you offer any guarantee your proposition would be good for me With no chance, to summarize or reply in some detail It took me by surprise made my train of thought derail Well you looked at my face And you looked at my hands Looked at what I was wearing Looked me over once again What would be the benefit to hitch my wagon to your star What do you have in mind before this business goes too far Can you offer any guarantee your proposition would be good for me Well you looked at my face And you looked at my hands Looked at what I was wearing Looked me over once again What would be the benefit to hitch my wagon to your star What do you have in mind before this business goes too far Can you offer any guarantee your proposition would be good for me I must admit, I said to you Our merger might face some delay Looks like the deal, has fallen through And so I quickly walked away Well you looked at my face And you looked at my hands Looked at what I was wearing Looked me over once again What would be the benefit to hitch my wagon to your star What do you have in mind before this business goes too far Can you offer any guarantee your proposition would be good for me Can you offer any guarantee your proposition would be good for me
