Tell you what, you hit the switch. I'll sing the song, you correct the pitch. And before you press me, Please compress me. Don't like the tone, equalize. Don't like the time, quantize. Wait a minute, Scotty, hold it on the one. Let me put the click track on. Take a bar I like, uh, loop it, alright, On top I'll put my own beats on, with my keyboard. We like it live!

Mr Majesty 05:54
Mr Majesty Mr Majesty, You are the poet of tones. Trinkle Sprinkle, Surge, Regurge Sanctify my Bones. Burble like Lava, Suck the blood from the stone. You got us good ‘n’ ready now, Show us your own CHORUS: Mr Majesty Just keep doin’ what you do Mr Majesty Just keep doin’ what you do Didn’t need no second opinion on my first impression. I confess, it’s getting to be an obsession With your righteous profession. Broadcasting from the shack, and an 8-track You know you can really blow my mind. Do, do, doin’ what you do… Wo-ho-ho-ho! CHORUS You are the ringleader of the cosmic circus With your royal sceptre It’s no happenstance I got your soul sustenance flowing into my receptor What twisted tome of the mind will your dome dream next? In a manner metaphysical you play the set equipped with all the funky effects. CHORUS Surely…you must be… Surely…you give me the good frequency. Surely…you must be… Surely…you give me the good frequency. CHORUS

ARGYLE GIRL I’d seen her couple times, round town as I recall, I was playing Bogie and She was my Bacall, Brunette in a Short shirt and an Argyle top, might be hazardous to my health And the she dropped the bombshell and the bombshell was herself. Legs poured into stockings, now that’s a set of pins. Padlock round her waist her daddy put there for her sins. Tongue was like a whip and this girl liked to give a lashing That’s how I discovered that Argyle was back in fashion. CHORUS Fashion moves in circles and this girl came into style. Same time that she walked in and I looked up her file. {Argyle Girl} Two legs and an attitude, I wanna be her toy Cause she’s an Argyle Girl and I’m a pinstripe boy. Argyle Girl was aloof, some might say she’s rude. She gave me a gutful of her sassy-o-si-tude She stopped at 6ft 1, her panache went through the roof Sucked a Kit Kat Caramel To satisfy her sweet tooth I tried to play it cool She raised a cautionary eyebrow If I want those legs around my waist Best not to act too highbrow I asked her what she did, Said she’s a bedroom dancer. Lucky she’s the kind of girl who takes ‘Yes’ for an answer. CHORUS Shotmybucca!

She kissed me...so I opened my wallet. Well, what the hell did you expect?
