I wrote this song with my musical brother (from another mother) Dennis Hardin, who is the handsome and talented half of Back Porch Buddha. We wrote it with one specific musical goal: Make it sound like it was torn from the pages of the Lyle Lovett songbook. So hey, Lyle, if you’re listening … here’s one for your Large Band.
Slow and Steady
© 2014 Bryan Masters and Dennis Hardin Layin it down On that old piano Gonna rock this place On that doghouse bass Piano's rough and ready Bass man is slow and steady Rough and ready plays so fine but Slow and steady's one note at a time My pal Eddie Loves that red spaghetti His gal Betty She's got a little red teddy She likes it rough and ready He likes it slow and steady Rough and ready got the push and pull but Slow and steady keep your belly full Rough and ready or slow and steady It's just fine Any way you want it better get up on it And have a good time Like that big bad monkey He likes it loud and funky Little monkey lady She's more sophisticatey He likes it rough and ready She likes it slow and steady Rough and ready swingin' from the trees but Slow and steady knows you gotta say please Rough and ready (slow and steady) Rough and ready (slow and steady) Miss Prim and Proper She can be a real showstopper She's a sweet little birdie I never heard a gal talk so dirty Proper and slow and steady Showstopper's rough and ready Slow and steady knows right from wrong but Rough and ready got the red lights on Bryan Masters Music/ASCAP
