Lyrical inspirations from Dr. J. Winde-Grudge


I knew a guy who knew a guy who knew Ian MacKaye, it didn't get me anywhere
But when I met an old gay who had known Claude McKay- then I had ganja to spare
You call me even when I tell you to leave me alone, you get me all worked up on the telephone
Oh baby, you got the drop on me
You know cotton is down to a quarter a pound and my pants are worn through at the knees

You said you had a relative in the entertainment business
But now I'm sweeping the floor at your uncles TV store
What the hell is this?
Oh you know I'm just trying to get ahead, but most days you won't even let me get out bed
Oh baby, you got the drop on me
I try to keep my head down in this miserable town but you just won't let me be

Oh I'm good with my hands, I know how to drive stick
I can tune a guitar in my sleep
But my back's getting bad and the last job I had, they said I was clever, not deep
Its not how old I am its how old I feel, and you put a crack in my drivin' wheel
Oh baby, you got the drop on me
And when I went down to our old hometown they said your brother was looking for me

Oh baby, bring your banjo back to Harlem
Bring your banjo back to Harlem, come on back to Banana Bottom
Baby come on back to me
