My Flash On You

I heard The Dilettantes cover this tune at the last two gigs. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s a classic. I was reminded how great this song is. The message and the passion just slays me. “My Flash on You” is a straight up jam. Are there any good rock and roll groups around these days? Damn. It’s a shame. Arthur knew it all along: Nevermind your genre posture, just kick out the jams.

LoveMy Flash On You

by Arthur Lee
I don’t want to be in your company
I don’t need you to take care of me
Let me alone, let me alone, let me alone, can’t you let me be
All I want in this world is to say I’m a man that’s free
People talk about the way I look
I say come on and say it, I got enough to write a book
But don’t they know, don’t they know, don’t they know it’s a waste of breath ‘Cause I don’t wanna be like them, all I want is to be myself
(Lemme hear you play it one time now)
Don’t try to force your smuggled drugs my way
‘Cause baby, I cleansed my soul and I say that’s the way it’s gonna stay
But you can put me down, all around, on the ground, anyway you choose
Get your kicks with your fix, but this time I know it’s you who lose
