lyrics

When first I caught you Rita, I didn’t know too much.
All the boys on the concrete was talking about your chocolate touch.
But guess what, now I’ve seen ya, I finally got my nerve.
So come on, school me, Rita, check out my learning curve.

I wanna wear my sneakers out with you baby.
I wanna hide under the bleachers and shout with you honey.
Come on Groove on it, break with it Do what it takes to get
Move on it, shake with it. Do what it takes to get.
Out of your momma’s house tonight.

Aww, why you gotta play it so cool, Lo Se Quiera, for goodness' sake.
When all I want is a two step jiggie and a ciggie on your fire escape.
But while you’re walking the skids with all the cool kids
I’m sitting at home, dog with a bone
Just wishin' how maybe I could steal some time with you alone.

I wanna wear my sneakers out with you baby.
I wanna hide under the bleachers and shout with you honey.
Come on Groove on it, break with it. Do what it takes to get.
Move on it, shake with it. Do what it takes to get
Out of your momma’s house tonight.

Now we could be ookie cookies and cream, and I wouldn’t brag
Bout how we’d like to play the birds and bees inside a sleeping bag.
Cause you know that I’m still, for the most part Rita, unrehearsed… safety first.
But maybe you got the right voodoo that can break this curse.

I wanna wear my sneakers out with you baby.
I wanna hide under the bleachers and shout with you honey.
Come on Groove on it, break with it. Do what it takes to get.
Move on it, shake with it. Do what it takes to get
Out of your momma’s house tonight.

about

Ben Cameron Nashville, Tennessee

Somewhere among the crisp, harmony laden breezes that whip through Laurel Canyon, the smooth, confessional frequencies of vintage AM radio, and the spiked punch-bowls of a high school prom circa 1986, there you’ll find Ben Cameron’s joyful, extreme folk music.

Without affectation or irony, Cameron’s lyrical songs mark the juncture where Yacht Rock meets Folk Rock.
