lyrics by Alex Gates


from drugs​/​birds​/​physical labour, released December 25, 2014
No one was happier to have
Such an icon on stage shaking his hand.

Well, comparisons are flattering, but they're getting out of hand
I'm in your corner while you're tuning up the band
And I love you so much, it nearly makes me sick
Sweet chin music
Sweet chin music.

There's a rabid dog running round
Don't want to have to be the one to put him down.

Come Sunday, I'll take Old Yeller behind the shed
Look down the iron-sights and put one in his head
I'll give you the show-stopper because you asked for it
And Sweet chin music
Sweet chin music.

High-flying, limousine-riding
Wheelin'-dealin', kiss-stealin'
Rolex-wearing, rings on hand
"To be the man, you've got to beat the man..."

One more low-blow, one more dirty-trick
One more well-timed, well-placed superkick
And I love you so much, I'm so sorry Ric
Sweet chin music
Sweet chin music
Sweet chin music.
