about

A rockin' version of an old Allen Toussaint song, originally recorded by Lee Dorsey. Mitch has toughened it up, moving away from the New Orleans R&B feel of the original, and giving it a rock attitude with great guitar playing from Rupert Jenner.

lyrics

I’m behind the eight ball, I’m behind the eight ball
I’m behind the eight ball, I can’t do nothin’ at all
I'm Just sittin’ by the phone waitin’ for you to call

You walked out and left me didn’t say goodbye
I ask myself “Why baby why?”
I’m behind the eight ball, I can’t do nothin’ at all
Just sittin’ by the phone waitin’ for you to call

I tried to figure this whole thing out
Maybe I don’t know what love’s all about
Behind the eight ball, I can’t do nothin’ at all
Just sittin’ by the phone waitin’ for you to call

I’m behind the eight ball, I’m behind the eight ball
I’m behind the eight ball, I can’t do nothin’ at all
Just sittin’ by the phone waitin’ for you to call
Alright!

I tried to figure this whole thing out
Maybe I don’t know what love’s all about
Behind the eight ball, I can’t do nothin’ at all
Just sittin’ by the phone waitin’ for you to call

I’m behind the eight ball, can’t do nothin’ at all
Can’t do nothin’ at all cause I’m behind the eight ball
I'm sittin’ by the phone waitin’ for you to call

Oh behind the eight ball, behind the eight ball
Why baby why? Why did you say goodbye
Behind the eight ball, Behind the eight ball
I'm gonna blow my stack baby if you don’t come back
Cause I’m behind the eight ball
