Dirty

Several years ago (~1995) I was in an unsuccessful 3-piece band called 'Lifta". The band came and went nowhere but the guitarist, Tristan Rogers, had a real flair for making up interesting guitar riffs. Tristan is the brother of Adam, who wrote "Cry to Heaven". I found an old 4-track tape of some of the Lifta songs, so I did my best to imitate Tristan's riff and wrote the rest. The chorus is also mostly Tristan's idea, but the rest of the words and music are my attempt to finish his great idea.

Update: If you feel generous you can now buy the version of this song released on The Genre Benders' debut CD "I am leaving! I am leaving!" from iTunes, or GroupieTunes, or Payplay.FM. If you have a different favourite online store, search for it there and if it's not there, let me know so I can put it there.

Dirty

Why don’tcha roll me over, baby and shake-a me down?
I got an itchin’ you been bitchin’ ‘bout me all over town.
I’m thinkin’ you’re the kind to blow my mind. The cream of the crop.
Yeah there’s a reason you’re in season and the heat won’t stop.

You say you want a winner but you’re inexact.
You’re Jonesin’ on the detail as a matter of fact.
I'm callin’ but you’re stallin’ when we interact.
Gettin’ to you takes tact.

‘Coz you’re Dirty (You're Dirty)
So Dirty (You're Dirty)

Yeah you can tell it to me straight, babe. I ain’t no Narc.
I get the feelin’ you been dealin’ while I dance in the dark.
You know I ain’t no Angel either, but this don’t compare
‘Cause you’re the devil in the detail with your sexy stare.

You say you want a winner but you’re inexact.
You’re Jonesin’ on the detail as a matter of fact.
I'm callin’ but you’re stallin’ when we interact.
Gettin’ to you takes tact.

‘Coz you’re Dirty (You're Dirty)
You're playin' Dirty (You're Dirty)

Come to me, babe.
See the road less travelled is smoother with two.
Now I know you want me, and I want you.

Your body’s makin’ statements you can’t retract.
I’m Jonesin’ on the detail as a matter of fact.
I’m callin’ but you're stallin’ when we interact.
Gettin’ to you takes tact.

Coz you’re Dirty (You're Dirty)
So Dirty (You're Dirty)
Let's get Dirty (You're Dirty)
So Dirty (You're Dirty)
Yes you are.
