Started out reversing the notes of Alex’s Rhodes lick, added the bass, went for a shuffle funky drum beat and made it wee bit faster and up a semitone.
Then Sassy was kind enough to lend me her chops.
Hope you like it.
The melody has been bugging me for a while. A good sign - I’m never quite sure. I must have been hungry when I did the lyrics.
Thanks Sassy. Thanks Alex.
love to hear a dance version anyone?

Here’s the words, regendered for Sassy to sing.

Breakdown Boy


You got me disengaged
in the most peculiar way
I used to think
the buttons that you push
were mine to play

through bad habits
and uncertainty
you blow my insecurity
the onion in my sandwich
in so many ways


But hey
wont you stop me for a while
I’ve been headn for a breakdown boy
I guess with style
I’ve been skidding down that slippery slope
dancing with my feet in soap
dragging barefoot
standing single file

You got me rearranged
in the most delightful way
I used to think that love
was just a game you learnt to play
with those habits
insecurities
behind a mask the world can see
anchovies on my pizza
in so many ways

But hey
wont you stop me for a while
Ive been headn for a breakdown boy
I guess with style
Ive been skidding down that slippery slope
dancing with my feet in soap
dragging barefoot
standing single file

I’ve been headn for a breakdown boy
breakdown boy
I’ve been headn for a breakdown boy
breakdown boy
