Ritual Rising


we no trust

Ritual Rising

Coffee in the morning
kitty with the purr
wife with the kiss lips
happiness pure

Peter Ball and I recorded a new tune Tuesday. A laid back sexual blues . . . lyrics below since reverb muffles my words. Peter Ball music and recording, me lyrics and vocals. 4:39. I like this one, it’s low key, though I’d like it more if I could hear my words clearly.

Click here to hear Tune Up – takes up to 15 seconds after click for the song to begin.

Tune Up (the song)

Gal you been runnin’ uneven
need to work your wobble wheel
I say you been runnin’ uneven
need to smooth that wavy wheel
give it a real good greasin’
then see how she feels.

Let’s clean your big head gasket
do the spit and shine
clean your old head gasket
while we do the spit and shine
no use taking to the casket
what we can share here like wine.

Come on gal, let’s raise your hood
start my fine tune dance
need to race your motor good
make it sputter utter chance
gonna chase the rising blood
when we turn up these amps.

You got that rough round red wagon
burning rubber straight from hell
I mean baby your little red wagon
razes rudder rather well
you’re my fiery fed dragon
and I’m deep in your wishing well.

Most folk moanin’ about something
moanin’ morning, noon, and night
groanin’ after some hankering
for a tone that just ain’t right
so they go and lose their anchoring
slip slide outa sight.

Come on gal, let’s raise your hood
start my fine tune dance
need to race your motor good
make it utter chance
gonna chase the rising blood
when we turn up these amps.

Well we gotta beep them chimes
do the sacred shake and shudder
I tell you it ain’t no crime
to roll the rocking rather
time after time after time after time
till we go and come together.

So Lady let’s fine-tune this mean machine
check it all out for clues
see how your equipment leans
make sure there’s nothing loose
lick your connections clean
jump start your vital juice.
