about

A tip of the hat to all the bands I loved in the '60s.

lyrics

You know exactly how to drive this poor boy wild;
You mess my mind up when you flash that wicked smile.
My heart starts racin' and I can't stay still;
If the thrill don't kill me then your lovin' will.
You know exactly how to drive this poor boy wild.

Don't you know that you make my day
Every time you walk my way?
Don't you know my fuses blow
Every time I let you carry me away, carry me away.

You are the reason that my pulse is running high;
You are the reason that my thoughts keep zippin' by.
Every time I get myself calmed down,
It goes out the window when you come back 'round.
You are the reason that my pulse is running high.

Don't you know that you make my day
Every time you walk my way?
Don't you know my fuses blow
Every time I let you carry me away, carry me away.

I never would've seen it comin',
But here's Cupid with his bowstring hummin'.
One shot, it hit the spot
And now I'm gonna let you carry me away, carry me away...

I taught jazz guitar at a university for twenty years, but I love and play many other styles of music. To me, Duke Ellington said it all: "If it sounds good, it IS good." ... more
