Outside Staight

BandR&BRock

Pop-Rock with a strong dose of R&B. All original tunes with some great hooks and poignant but humorous lyrics. Great sax, flute and guitar solos give each tune a unique and spontaneous quality. The music is for the most part up-beat and feel-good stuff, great for dancin' up a storm.

Lyrics

Samurai Cowboy

Written By: Mark Luecke

My baby dropped me like a hot brick. It was a real bad scene.
I was hot, my baby got cold, we both got mean.
Though I knew it would not do me no good, to cry, scream and carry on.
I cannot understand why a grown man has to act like such a fool.

Chorus:
I wanna find a way to set my jaw and walk on, the very image of a man of action.
Mosey along my way akin to a cowboy when his work is done.
Turn right on my heel and push off the way of a woman with the upper hand
I wanna find out how to stand up tall and walk away, Like a Samurai.

One week later she phoned me, said: my body wants you only, I’m so lonely.
You come over here boy I’ll do somethin’ sexy, make your brains fall out.
You better believe I ran I did not walk, when I got there she wanted to…talk.
I made a fool of myself with my own libido, when will I ever learn?

(Chorus)

You might believe that would be the end, but that woman took me back again,
Only to break my heart with another man.
When I saw them laying side by side, just a tangle of bare legs and thighs,
The kind of thing calculated to make a man lay right down and die.

But I found a way to set my jaw and walk on, the very image of a man of action.
Mosey along my way akin to a cowboy when his work is done.
Turn right on my heel and push off, the way of a woman with the upper hand.
I found out how to stand up tall and walk away, like a Samurai. Walk away,
Like a Samurai. Walk away, Like a Samurai.
