about

It all started with a drum and bass loop. Mix in a good basketball season and listening to too much Prince and D'angelo, and this is what happens to an otherwise harmless folk act.

lyrics

Ohh Lady, I know that you're home
I walked by your window and the light was on
I'll tell you something that you might remember
Set your feet now, Darlin', shot clock is running out

Ohh Lady, I are you hearin' what I say
If I can't post up your love, guess I'll settle for the J
Put me in, Darlin', you can't go wrong
I've been warming your bench, girl, for far too long.
