Use It Or You Lose It


Ian Dittman from The Bellhops sent me this song 'cause he was going to use it for his side project band thingo, but as soon as I heard the lyric, I thought, "Oh, Oh, that's a Mississippi song if I ever heard one". The original version is a completely different groove, it's more like a Little Richard / Soul kinda thing, with a horn section, a different melody and 50% different works, and our version is a bit naughtier.

Don't save yourself for that rainy day, a chance like this may never come you way
You better use it or you'll lose, its just a matter of time
Yoy better use it or you'll lose it, cause baby I've been using mine

Don't sit around watchin that clock tic-tock, you never can tell when that clock might stop

Don't yu' start thinkin' if it's right or wrong
You might as well start usin' what you're sittin' on

Well take the wrapping paper off and undo that bow,
Don't be shy let's get it goin' down below

I tell you one thing that is understood
You gotta get goin' while the goin' is good
