The Privates International Band

The Privates International Band

BandRockPop

A supercharged eclectic mix of jump-up tunes with spikey guitars, slinky bass, thumping beats and dirty crooning.

Biography

Born from the dissatisfaction of parties on their rag-tag home-town of Johannesburg, The Privates sought to create an eclectic mix of styles that had one thing in common - it made you move yer hips. 1 album, several festivals and countrywide tours later, they're about to release 2EPs of harder-edged quality music.

Lyrics

Lady

Written By: The Privates international band (Trevor Sacks, Charles Foley)

1st verse:
Lady
Do you mind if I call you ‘Lady’?
Lately
I’ve been scheming something lately
A fast car, a cheap motel, let’s take a cruise, who knows how far We’ll go
Yeah, we can take it real slow

Or maybe not

2nd verse:
Because you’re foxy
You’re sitting pretty and you’re foxy
Dreaming
If you only knew what I was dreaming
Satin sheets, a heart-shaped bed, smoking hot the light is red
It’s burning
Boy is it hot in here, it’s burning

Chorus:
I don’t wanna be your sweet-heart pen-pal
I don’t wanna have to say, “Your daddy’s nice, you’re mama’s swell”
I don’t wanna hear about your white wedding plans
I just wanna
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna…

3rd verse:
Friday
Yeah we’ll make love all night till Sunday
And then one day
I might just call you up again someday
When the night is hot and you feel the heat, meet me up in my penthouse suite
Way up
We’ll stop the elevator on the way up

Chorus:
I don’t wanna be your sweet-heart pen-pal
I don’t wanna have to say, “Your daddy’s nice, you’re mama’s swell”
I don’t wanna hear about your white wedding plans
I just wanna
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna…

Pre-chorus:
Oh so fair to me, you have the softest touch
Your eyes they sing to me, songs of sweetest love and such
You light my fantasy, light caressing graceful hips
I pull you close to me, so I can kiss you on the lips
On the lips…

Chorus:
I don’t wanna be your sweet-heart pen-pal
I don’t wanna have to say, “Your daddy’s nice, you’re mama’s swell”
I don’t wanna hear about your white wedding plans
I just wanna
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna…

Outro:
Real slow
Yeah, we can take it real slow
We can take it real slow

Riot

Written By: The Privates international band (Trevor Sacks, Charles Foley)

Verse 1:
Here it coming, coming closer
Feet are pounding, getting stronger
Eyes are open, ever wider
You can’t hold out, any longer

Two sugars with your cup of tea
Can you tell something’s bothering me

Chorus:
Step up, step out of line
Step up step out of line
Step up, step out of line
Step up, you gotta do it in time
Riot! Riot! Riot!
Quiet. Quiet. Quiet.
Riot! Riot! Riot!
If you don’t like it, fight it

Verse 2:
Let it take you, take you further
Take you further, than your father
It’s in front of you, right behind you
All around you, it’s inside of you
Here it coming, coming closer
Feet are pounding, getting stronger
Eyes are open, ever wider
You can’t hold out, any longer

Two sugars with your cup of tea
Can you tell something’s bothering me

Chorus:
Step up, step out of line
Step up step out of line
Step up, step out of line
Step up, you gotta do it in time
Riot! Riot! Riot!
Quiet. Quiet. Quiet.
Riot! Riot! Riot!
If you don’t like it, fight it

Euphoria

Written By: The Privates international band (Trevor Sacks, Charles Foley)

Euphoria

Verse 1:
Jumping castles, make-believe
You’ve got something up your sleeve
Jumping castles, bunnies too
It’s all about you

Feed the geese, white picket fence
Even though it makes no sense
Take me down your petal path
Make me happy, make me laugh

(Chorus)

Euphoria, skin on skin
Skin on skin I sin again

Euphoria against the wall
Euphoria you want it all
Euphoria before you fall

Verse 2:
Brandy coke, a drink or 2
Come on meet me in the loo
Show me that thing you do
Do me do me do me do

Tell me secrets, pretty lies
Pretty lies between your thighs
Big black pupils in your eyes
Look at you, you won the prize

(Chorus)

Euphoria, skin on skin
Skin on skin I sin again

Euphoria against the wall
Euphoria you want it all
Euphoria before you fall

(Instrumental)

(Chorus)

Euphoria, skin on skin
Skin on skin I sin again

Euphoria against the wall
Euphoria you want it all
Euphoria before you fall
