    Intro:

    Em9 A13 [4X; flute enters 3rd time]
    / / / / / / / /

    Verse 1:

    Em9 A13
    Baby's into runnin' 'round, hangin' with the crowd
    Em9 A13
    Puttin' your business in the street, talkin' out loud
    Em9 A13
    Sayin' he's bought her this and that and how much you done spent
    Em9 A13
    I swear she must believe it's all heaven-sent
    Em9 A13
    Hey boy, you better bring the chick around
    Em9 A13
    To the sad, sad truth, the dirty lowdown
    Em9 A13 Em9 A13
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
    Taught her how to talk like that
    Em9 A13 Em9 A13
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
    Gave her that big idea

    Em9 A13 [2X]
    / / / / / / / /

    Verse 2:

    Nothin' you can't handle, nothin' you ain't got
    Put your money on the table and drive it off the lot
    Turn on that old lovelight, turn a maybe to a yes
    Same old schoolboy game got you into this mess
    Hey son, you better get on back to town
    Face the sad old truth, the dirty lowdown
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
    Put those ideas in your head
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)

    Instrumental break:

    Dmaj7 C#+5 F#m7-5/C B7-9
    / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / /

    Partial verse:

    Em9 A13 [2X]
    / / / / / / / /

    Em9 A13
    Come on back down to earth, son
    Em9 A13 (F#m9)
    Dig the low-low-low-low-lowdown

    Guitar solo:

    F#m9 B13 [4X]
    / / / / / / / /

    Verse 3:

    You ain't got to be bad, got to be cold
    This dog-eat-dog business is surely gettin' old
    Got to have a jones for this, jones for that
    This runnin' with the joneses, boy, it just ain't where it's at
    You gonna come back around
    To the sad, sad truth, the dirty lowdown
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
    Got you thinkin' like that
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)

    [repeat instrumental break]

    Coda [repeat to fade]:

    Em9 A13
    I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder, who...

    Is that the Statler jernt?

    There's a live version on that TAKRL boot, but it's nothing special. Plus the audience noise crowds the intro.

    The Univesral Something Or Others from right here in Chicago have a fly gospel version, but it's under a different title, a title which escapes me for the moment. (Sorry I'm light on the details; I just ate some coconut-flavored Maria cookies and I'm distracted by the poison-tasting slick at the back of my throat. God, these shits taste like they're laced with Banana Boat and Raid. I'm only gonna eat like one more, and then I'm done-done.)

    Anyway, interested parties could also check the instrumental bridge that occurs toward the end of Toto's "Tale Of A Man."

    Yezzir. I think it's Jazz Techniques by Lynda Gache (Gash? Really?).

    Joe Thomas

    I remember some other DJ playing a MF Doom beat sampling the beginning of the Joe Thomas version and it was dope. Very straight four/four drums fitting into a house set. I can't remember the name. Anybody remembers this?

    the band called 7-A-Side, produced by the great Noel Quinlan here in Hong Kong.

    One of my all time favourite cover version of the song imo.

  • mannybolonemannybolone 15,032 Posts
    Kenny: what's the deal with Quinlan? I'm assuming he was some ex-pat Brit but was he Chinese?

  • kennykenny 1,024 Posts
    I think he's an Australian expat used to live in Hong Kong, and was a producer for RTHK radio station for a bit. He found local record label House Records, which later released hits by Teresa Carpio and the Carpio sisters, and local rock bands such as Jade, Ming etc.

    Not 100% sure where he is now, but I think he resides in the US, I even recall seeing his name turned up as a producer for the Yan Can Cook series.

    And he also had a hand in the Man From Hong Kong soundtrack...

    I thought it was called Disco Gold

  • dayday 9,612 Posts
    Nah, it's Jazz Technique. Yellow cover with her kicking her leg up. There's some other covers on there too (Hall & Oates "She's Gone" ftwtf). Haven't heard the Disco Gold one.
