Tip Toes

This song is based on a chromatic bass-line groove.  Tip Toes has GOT to be funky, or else it would sound like Ani DiFranco done badly.  The words are less meaningful than the energy the song gives the listener, though there is a positive message to be had in the lyrics.  In this song, we get to show off a little.  Time signature is 4/4.

Verse 1

I don’t need a lover to feel whole

I am undiscovered, and I am in control

It’s been many, many years since a whisper has found my ears, but I’m

I’m gonna be fine, I’m gonna be

Fine

Verse 2

You don’t need a lover to plan your day,

I have got you covered, and you can have your way

It’s been many, many years since a whisper has found your ears, but you’re

You’re gonna be fine.  You’re gonna be

Mine

 

Pre-Chorus

You’re gonna be fine

You’re gonna be fine

You’re gonna be fine

You’re gonna be mine

 

Chorus

‘Cause all my life you have kept me waiting

I think I’ve done my time, I am done complaining

And rest assured I’ll find you girl and when I do, you’re

You’re gonna be fine

You’re gonna be mine

Verse 3

We don’t need a lover to be OK

We have got each other and that’s enough any day, oh

It’s been many, many years since a whisper has found our ears, but we’re

We’re gonna be fine,

We’re gonna be
