Micayla 03:53
MICAYLA I was running down the avenue Trying to find my soul So I bought myself a little car Things ain’t all that bad down here Micayla Chorus: Micayla you're my little love I’m walking on the moon It's a pretty pretty cold night Micayla Without you I was running down the hotel corridor When I tripped, the sky opened I hit the floor I was running back to you But time doesn’t stand still Micayla Chorus: Micayla you're my little love I’m walking on the moon Micayla And it's a pretty pretty cold night Micayla Without you (Instrumental interlude) I was running down the avenue Trying to get away trying to get away Things aren't all that bad on St. Clair Avenue Micayla, blue jean Micayla Chorus: Micayla you're my little love And the stars are so close Micayla It’s a pretty, pretty cold place Micayla Bridge: Horn and paino I was running down the avenue Micayla, Blue Jean Micayla. pye 26/07/09

Da Wack 04:03
DA WACK He leaves and I breakdown, I pick me up Head out of town, booth in the Tunnel Restaurant Waiting for my ribs & fry, pick up Joey on the side Think of you when it comes, cold slaw, side order of cold slaw Chorus: We walked along the boardwalk, and we were armed like Greta Garbo And the Townhall clock, always on display, so magnificent I should have offered him a smack, Instead I took Da wack, Da wack, Da wack. Driv’in through the rain, the wipers beat’in double time They don’t dry my tears, they don’t wipe away my shame What’s a girl to do, think’in of you with her It’s raining in my heart and I’m wacked, da wack, da wack Chorus: We walked along the boardwalk, and we were armed like Greta Garbo And the townhall clock, always on display, magnificent I should have offered him a smack, Instead I took Da wack, Da wack, Da wack. Bridge ( vamp on Aus /// Cmaj7th , Asus /// Gmaj7th ///Cmaj7th ) What goes ‘round, comes to pass, guess I’ll top my ‘tini glass Mr. D comes to play, with my idle time Wait’in for my ribs & fry, pick up Joey on the side Think’in of you when it comes, cold slaw, side order of cold slaw. Chorus: We walked along the boardwalk, and we were armed like Greta Garbo And the Town Hall clock, always on display, magnificent I should have offered him a smack, Instead I took Da wack, Da wack, Da wack. pye 28/03/13

Don’t Give Yourself To Strangers I’ve been walking & talking With myself I’ve been walking & talking to myself And it’s alright baby now On your way, twisting turning Rue the day, the sun woke up On your own, the currents brutal Paddling your schifo all alone Chorus: I’ve been walking & talking With myself I’ve been walking & talking to myself And it’s alright baby now (instrumental verse) Last night, the moon woke us up Spilling moon beams into dark hair They brushed your face Like Mona Lisa So don’t give up Don’t give yourself away Don’t give yourself to strangers Come home the door is open Chorus: I’ve been walking & talking With myself I’ve been walking & talking to myself And it’s alright baby now (instrumental) On your way You’ll get there soon Rue the day The sun woke up pye 13/12/08

DRUNKEN PIANO I’m playing a drunken piano. I’m playing a drunken piano And I’m already yours bought and sold like a ticket to the Zoo REFRAIN: The blue notes come first then they dissolve The black notes are next then they resolve While I try to play, this drunken piano I’m playing a drunken cello. I’m playing a drunken cello And I’m bowing strong, but I lost this song playing a drunken piano BRIDGE: All the plans we made fell through Darned if it happened to you Wouldn’t you be blue too, and playing a drunken piano? (instrumental turnaround cello) REFRAIN: The “blue meanies” come first then they dissolve The blue monkeys on my back, the yard-apes in the yard And they’re making quite a racket, the yard-apes in the yard While I’m trying to play, this drunken piano pye

Cold Call 04:57
COLD CALL I was out in the city, just wandering around Didn’t know where I was goin’, didn’t give a damn Walked into a bar, to talk to the Man I was making a cold call, and I was offered a warm hand Chorus: Cold call and I was offered a warm hand Makin’ a cold call and was offered a warm hand Cold Call and I was offered a warm hand It just happens like that, sometimes, sometimes I was in the middle of the city tryin’ to figure out what to do Maybe I’d beat my heels to ‘Frisco or play some talkin’ Chicago Blues Walked up some old stairs to the Monarch Tavern second floor There at a table playing pool was a Big Star His name was Tommy Hunter And he knocked me on my back I was makin’ a cold call And Tommy offered me a warm hand Chorus: Cold call and I was offered a warm hand Makin’ a cold call and I was offered a warm hand Cold Call and I was offered a warm hand It just happens like that, sometimes (instrumental) Told Tommy I used to watch him on T.V. when I was just a kid "Kid you probably had only one channel” And I said, “You’re right about that” I was making a cold call and Tommy offered me a warm hand Knocked me on my back, that Country Gentleman Chorus: Cold call and I was offered a warm hand Makin’ a cold call and I was offered a warm hand Cold Call and I was offered a warm hand It just happens like that, sometimes (instrumental) Bridge: I've tried to stay on the straight and narrow best as I can Stayed away from cards and thrown the dice away 'Cause it strained my eyes to see that a pair of red fishhooks Ain’t the best starting hand against any ragged black ace Everywhere you go, it’s always the same People treat you right or they stab you in your frame You got to separate, the wheat from the chaff It’s just the way things are, it’s a Natural Fact. Chorus: Cold call and I was offered a warm hand Makin’ a cold call and was offered me a warm hand Cold call and I was offered a warm hand It just happens like that, sometimes It just happens like that, sometimes Sometimes Pye 16/09/10

about

This record EP was released as a record of "singles". The over arching connection is the horns and strings beautifully arranged by Rob Teehan. And I got to play electric and acoustic piano as well as my Gretsch White Falcon guitar.
