Originally from a skirmish with the challenging prompt from @jibbidy34. This song took a while to learn so the skirmish demo was a short mess. Got it figured out and worked the lyrics a little bit. Got the band tracks together with a little BG vox and here's the new improved version. I'm not sure what's a verse and what's a chorus so I called the part with the title (refrain) the chorus.
So to not repeat myself too much this time I decided to use an odd time. I was going to use 5/4 which I'm not too good at but the prompt and lyric put me in seven which is usually a breeze but this was really hard to pull off even to the rough sketch you hear. Gotta keep pushin'.
Take The Bait
Chorus 1 I've been lurkin' here Hope you're comin' near to Take the bait, take the bait I've been waitin' to see What becomes of you and me. Take the bait, take the bait Vs1 Oooh the anticipation Makes me just a little bit crazy Oooh ongoing flirtation Keeps me up at night with the way you amaze me Ch 2 I've been thinkin' 'boutcha don't Want to live withoutcha just Take the bait, take the bait We could have a drink or two I'd give you a wink and you'd Take the bait, take the bait Vs2 Oooh I've been waitin' for so long Gettin' close to bein' a distraction Oooh I've been tryin' to be strong What I got to do to get a reaction Ch3 Gtr Vs3 Oooh in another dimension We could be the daily double Oooh 'n' I just have to mention We could get into some intentional trouble Ch4 I do what I can do Always hopin that you will Take the bait, take the bait I even played dress up Hopin' you would mess up and Take the bait, take the bait Vs4 Oooh what was I thinkin' Drivin' myself into madness Oooh my options are shrinkin' Headin' down the road to perpetual sadness. Ch5 I'll be hurtin' forever Only because you never Take the bait, take the bait Take the bait, take the bait ©2018 John W Hanberry (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved
