lyrics

He’s got that high brow kind of smile
Though he’d swear blind that ain’t his style
Have you seen the way he works that leather jacket with the shirt
But the rumour going round is that he’s quite the class A jerk
Straighten up your suit and tie
And I’ll wear my lipstick like a lie
On occasion you’re wound tighter than a 1920s Albert clock
Oh honey needs to learn, to take it down a notch

Take your trigger off the gun, son
You’re not the only one that’s got it, going on
Take your trigger off the gun, son
Lay me down your rules, or get it done
Take your trigger off the gun, son
Give it to me straight, how this is gunna run
Take your trigger off the gun, son
Cause you’re not the only one that’s got it, going on

You’re quite the bootlegger, playing all the games
But I don’t care whether, your shine is all the rage
Cause I reckon all those big ideals are built to go
So if you buck them up, then let me know

You’d call him cultured none the less
And I’ll admit he does impress
Soon to be dining in King’s corner and all that
But I’ve heard it from himself that when he’s drunk he’s quite a….
Keep your eyes fixed on your prize
And I’ll lace my voice with sweet denies
I’m about as subtle as a gun and heavy-handed like a rock, but
Honey you’re the one that’s far too close to going off

Take your trigger off the gun, son
You’re not the only one that’s got it, going on
Take your trigger off the gun, son
Lay me down your rules, or get it done
Take your trigger off the gun, son
Give it to me straight, how this is gunna run
Take your trigger off the gun, son
Cause you’re not the only one that’s got it, going on

You’re quite the bootlegger, playing all the games
But I don’t care whether, your shine is all the rage
Cause I reckon all those big ideals are built to go
So if you buck them up, then let me know
Ooh, look at you, mister big shot bootlegger

Look at you, Mister Bootlegger
Ooh, look at you, you’re quite the bootlegger

about

Black Ally Leeds, UK

'Musically they sip from the devils cup of Blues-rock but with vocalist, Eleni Ravanis, who’s voice could melt chocolate, this is the sweet and sour of music all in one dish. While they might have only started their live adventure, they have already got people tipping them as “ones to watch”.
