Give me

from FAWM 2020 by The Fishermen & the Priestess

backstage exclusive


The cassette, modestly marked, had:
Track 1 @stevenwesleyguiles on guitar
Track 2 @zecoop on drums
Track 3 @elesimo on bass

Which left vocals for me. But I strapped on a guitar and played little bits in between singing, using one mic/one track to pick everything up. I had to practice 10-12 times to get it right. So what I heard was straight-up 1965 garage rock, so the lyrics are in that vein, totally sexist, not at all politically correct. I've played this stuff before, that's how it was written back in the day...


I'm not gonna be your savior
but I want you to do me a favor
give me just a little bit of your love
cuz you know it comes from up above

You gonna give me what you got
and baby you know, you got a lot

I'm gonna be your friend
and a little bit more
come on baby
you know the score

ain't gonna buy you
a diamond ring
but you gonna give me

I'm gonna be
your paramour
you know you one day
gonna even up the score

when I saw you
walking down the street
I said that's a girl
I got to meet
you know one day
you gonna walk away
but that
won't be today
