Tokyo Tea

I'm so glad to finally hear this, the germ of this song has been percolating in the form of an amazngly funky jam for the past month or so. Now it's emerged fully-formed and ready to join the repetoire, very nicely balanced with Jason's bass lines and Jeff's leads, Jake holding court with some killer stacatto cymbal work.







Standing like a statue
with a rose gripped in his teeth
you know he rolls
the dice

he could take them all
except for one
and guess who his gaze is on
the only one

You know he can’t stand to lose
no not this one

You know he can’t stand to lose
no not this one

cm-on kitkat gimme the news
i ain’t got time for all this blues

She advances towards the bar
he orders her a drink
a Tokyo Tea
on ice

She knows just what she wants
and sees what she can get
she’s not surprised
to find

You know she can’t stand to lose
no not this one

You know she can’t stand to lose
no not this one

cm-on kitkat gimme the news
i ain’t got time for all this blues

Playing hard to get
Will only make you lose
Playing hard to get
Will only make you lose
Remember playing hard to get
will only make you lose
you’re mine

You know they can’t stand to lose
no not this time

You know they can’t stand to lose
no not this time
