Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move
Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.... (longest gap and then in come the drums and guitars)
Ah, ah, child, way you shake that thing
Gonna make you burn, gonna make you sting... (medium gap)
Hey, hey, baby, when you walk that way
Watch your honey drip, can't keep away.... (almost no gap)
and buried in the last words each time you will hear a stick click.
Gotcha - yep, I do hear the click. Wild.
Do you think that anyone would have had come into the session with a chart of at least the form for this tune or do you think it just evolved? It seems like it would be a real bear to talk someone down on this tune without a piece of paper to at least serve as a road map.
