Hear the New Single by The Slipshod Swingers


Present Tense, the Song will be the first single off Mars or Bust, the Soundtrack (Febraury 14th Release). It was catalysed in a jam session with K. Thanks, K. It is for my crazy heart, all you ladies, and my beautiful brother, Paiman.

I would also like to take this time to introduce the newest member of The Slipshod Swingers, Frank Ewing. He plays in the L.A. band, Downtown Harvest.

Present Tense, the Song


Present Tense, the Song

Why oh Why am I all alone
I want you to take me home
I don’t know where I am
I got no master plan

What oh what have you done to me
Don’t you know it’s no mystery
You broke my heart in two
and now I’m calling you

Oh Oh Oh
Da Da…
I love you my girl
You make my world
Oh, so beautiful…

You broke my heart
right from the start
but I still love you girl
yeah, I love you girl

How oh how can I kill this pain?
I want to drown in the rain.
But I can’t seem to forget.
The worst of what was said.

When oh when will she leave you now
That question don’t make me proud
Cause you know I’ve asked it too
and made it all come true

Where oh where is my cap and gown
I think I have learned it now
It just doesn’t make sense
Unless it’s present tense.
