you are sleeping

ok, so first of all i’d like to apologise – for several reasons, i will not be putting together a 2003 mix. i won’t go into them, but unfortunately it’s just not feasible. the same may also be true for 2004 – but i’ll be back and raring to go for 2005 all the way up to this year. anyway here’s a video. the track (and lyrics underneath) are from a mix by the guys that up until this point had been my biggest inspiration in dance music – deep dish. later i’ll post a mix from the man who replaced them.

you pick up this working girl, who’s hooked on smack, who hustles and scores, that’s all i do she says. she says ten bucks for head, fifteen for half and half she says. 3 hits a day at 35 per, that’s 7 tricks a day at least, but she says “sometimes I get lucky… once this guy gives me a bill and a half just to eat me. only time I ever came.”

you figure you can save her. you sell your colour TV that keeps her off the streets a whole day. you hock your typewriter for one jolt. then your shotgun, your watch. a week later you say “listen, i’m a little short,” but she says “no scratch, no snatch.” you say “look it is better to give,” but she says “beat off, creep.”

one night they spot you on the street in your skivvies, trying to sell your shoes. you tell them who you are but they nail you. then she happens by and she says “christ, you look ****ed,” she says “hang tough!” but you don’t say anything. you just think “what a bum rap for a nice sensitive guy like me…”
