about

Fat Night Chicago, Illinois

Some wild jivin' cats got together in the evenin'. Was some funky kind of music on which they were feastin'. Each new full moon these cats would conspire, maan them grooves would reach higher like fire. If your ears are startled, don't be scared, take a bite. Some folks call this thing FAT NIGHT ... more

Track Name: Best You've Ever Had
You don't want me when I'm able, you don't like me when you're sad.
Keep your hands above the table, I'll be the best you've ever had.
No need to give excuses, I'm an understanding man
Tell me what I got to do now, and I'll be at your side as soon as I can

Lord knows I've tried my best
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes
Words you say don't make sense
The wrong feelings make you tense
Like a cat up on a fence

Sometimes
Riding on a steady beat
You can't help but to move your feet
And like a car, you overheat
Track Name: Smilin'
What's the use of lying to yourself?
When you're being used by someone else
Starts to mix into a fire that fuels your head
Heart's a breakin' now, you're left with feeling dead

Every now and then and urge to be with you before you're back in your old ways...
Stumblin round and falling down into the cracks makes me slack, and broken backs don't go away

And the feeling I just can't disguise
The way that you're making me feel, when you look into my eyes
And more importantly, you mean the most to me
All I can do, when you're blue, is try to make you smile

I want to see you smilin'
Let me see you smile
I love to see you smilin'
Track Name: Three Simple Words
Three simple words
You said to me, gonna set me free
Holding you tight
Telling you it's all right to get next to me

So what if we don't see eye to eye all the time
Baby you're mine
That's the way it's gonna be
You can't be like a mystery to me for the night
Three little words, three simple words

You left all alone, and with tears in my eyes, girl I watched you leave
Hours on the phone, I couldn't cry
I couldn't breathe

What's my life without love?
What's you're life without mine?
Is it better on the other side?

You can't be like a mystery to me for all time

Three little words, three simple words
Track Name: Sweet Berry Wine
10:30 a.m. on a Saturday and there's no work to be had
Ruthy wants to bike down to the river
And boy, you know I'm glad
Up to my neck in bushes
Thorns and snakes can all be damned
You know I'd take a thousand pricks for a jar of pickled jam

Fruit so sweet, friendship so fine
Ruthy what's the recipe for blackberry wine
Daytime pickin', Evenin' time
Searching for the recipe for blackberry moonshine

I can't wait for tomorrow, I can't wait to go back
The reds will have turned purple, and the purples will be black
In my car and in the bars, police they hassle me
I'd like to see one of you boys in blue try to steal my blackberries

Fruit so sweet, friendship so fine
Ruthy what's the recipe for blackberry wine
Daytime pickin', Evenin' time
Ruthy for the recipe for blackberry moonshine
Track Name: The Warmth
Don't be shy
It's only the rain
Dry your eyes
No cryin'

Hold me down and love away the storm
Never underestimate the warmth

Don't wear thin
I'm here now
You're a strong woman
I will show you how

Let our faith in love guide through the storm
Never underestimate the warmth
Track Name: Tight Knot
I left you
Scratching your head
Now I sit here, collecting my thoughts with a dirty ten cents in my hand

Line up
Turn your papers in
Even when you bluff, start rememberin' about me

I listen
to what you don't
And the feeling I get, it won't let me regret
But I can't always do what you want

Follow the pack, don't fall behind
When you think you're gonna crack, keep all of this and mind
And see

Of all the things I'm looking for
I've given up on 'em, I can't look no more

'cause you've got me in a tight knot

Don't worry about a thing
When you look my way, you make me wanna sing

You've got me in a tight knot
Track Name: Walk Away
You can walk away

If you walk away, then you'll never know
How I feel inside
How I can't let go

And we'll never be
The people we want to be

If you walk away
Then we'll never be

You can walk away

If you walk away, If you make it clear
That the bridge is burned, that there's no love here
And we'll never be, the people you want to see

If you walk away, then we'll never be
Track Name: Root Beer
A child walks through his hometown playground
Wondering where he'll be this time next year
Wondering if he'll ever find a friend to play with
Wondering if he'll ever finish his root beer

I know this don't mean much
But girl, I like your touch
Take me for a ride in your limousine
I wanna see how you live your days

You're telling me that you don't know magic
But baby, I'm always under your spell
Life without you would be oh so tragic
I want to get to know you well

You're telling me that you don't know magic
But baby I'm always under your spell
Life without you would be oh so tragic
Love is a kind of thing you just can't sell

I want to let you know that I'm your fool
Getting to know you would be oh so swell
She said, "Why don't you come by my place after school?"
"I'll answer the door if you ring my bell"
