The Attitude of Eachother

I want to stay

Sly and the Family Stone

Now looking at this cover I can’t help but think about some kid at an elementary
school down the street from where the photo was taken. But thats just a bit to deep
into my own self curiosity. I caught the song “If you want me to stay” on seeqpod thinking of a person whom I love so dearly. I had to run a post of the song lyrics and a little nod to this jammin’ funk soul combo.

I’m thinking Larry Graham right now, the man and his central station. Man these were some funky cats laying down the poetry and the FUNK!!! Please stop me if you think these people, along with a wide stock of ahem: Stanley Clarke, Ron Carter, Boostie, and Mr. George Duke, didn’t know how to rock you into a frenzy. I’m serious my dear reader, listen again for the primera vez, hear the bass guitar tear you apart. Good for breakup music, episodes of self-pity, and the usual case of what happened to the times…?

I leave you with these lyrics that can best describe how I feel…

If you want me to stay
I’ll be around today
To be available for you to see
I’m about to go
And then you’ll know
For me to stay here I’ve got to be me

You’ll never be in doubt
That’s what it’s all about
You can’t take me for granted and smile
Count the days I’m gone
Forget reaching me by phone
Because I promise I’ll be gone for a while

When you see me again
I hope that you have been
The kind of person that you really are now
You got to get it straight
How could I ever be late
When you’re my woman takin’ up my time

How could you ever allow
I guess I wonder how
How could you get out of pocket for fun
When you know that you’re never number two
Number one gonna be number one

I’ll be good
I wish I could
Get this message over to you now
When you see me again
I hope that you have been
The kind of person you really are no
When you see me again
I hope that you have been
The kind of person that you really are now
I’ll be so good
I wish I could
Get the message over to you now.

S.F.S

Please please please!!!!!
