Once while I was agonizing over which of two girls to ask out, it came to pass that both girls found something else to do - and presumably someone else to do it with. This is an homage to my childhood idol, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and is dedicated him and harmonica great Alan (Blind Owl) Wilson. It was the first project I recorded on my 8-track reel-to-reel way back in 1985.


Youze Gurlz

I could have many things to do
But I was thinking of you!
Youze gurlz
Youze gurlz
Youze gurlz have been used
Youze gurlz used me
Youze gurlz
Youze gurlz used me until you bruised me
Now I can’t see so good.
I can’t see so good like I fancy I used to.
Youze gurlz are all used up!
Ya boozed it up
And ya chewed it up
‘n’ I thought you might
bite it off
now it’s soft.
Now there’s nothing to hold me aloft.
I’m a desperate little shit, huh?
Not me, no way, no how
I’ve been through this too many times before…
Now there’s nothing to hold me aloft.
I’m a desperate little shit, huh?
No suh!
