My first choice was a song by Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings – try to get some soul and blues working here – but I couldn’t find the lyrics anywhere, and I haven’t had time to try to transcribe them.  (Go Red Sox!)  Second choice, honestly, is one of my favorite bands.  That’s it this week, not really much of a story.

I’ll say that, after having fish, candy is the last thing on my mind.  Does anybody have ideas about “Korvettes”? That line, “Walking out of Korvettes / Package in her hand” – Some kind of store.  Help?

Song:   Give Me Back My Man
Album: Wild Planet
Artist:  B-52s
Song Writers: Fred Schneider, Ricky Wilson, Keith Strickland, Cindy Wilson

 

Thanks to Helen for the challenge;   Song Lryic Sunday

She cuts her hair
And calls his name
Wishin’ everything could be the same
Like when she had him

I’ll give you fish
I’ll give you candy
I’ll give you everything I have in my hand

Walking out of Korvettes
Package in her hand
Motions to all the seabirds
Throws divinity on the sand

I’ll give you fish
I’ll give you candy
I’ll give you everything I have in my hand

Give me, give back my man
Give me, give back my man

Her head’s in a whirlpool
Spinnin’ round and round
If she don’t get her man back
She’s gonna drown

I’ll give you fish
I’ll give you candy
I’ll give you everything I have in my hand

Give her, give back her man
Give her, give back her man. (repeat)
