I just made an old school mix with song on it. Its classic.


But does anybody have any idea why it sounds so identical to Odyssey's Inside Out? I like that song too tho.

"I read an article a few years ago about it, and it stated that Steve had a hand in writing it, but was not credited. It went on to say that Odyssey didn't take this one...Jimmy Douglass was the co-producer for the Stone Jam album, and he was the producer for the Odyssey album this track was on, and he got some of the band members from Slave to do they thang on it."

Hey Identity. Yes, this is indeed what I said and I stand by it.

As much as I love Slave (my fave funk band).....it's consistently amazed me how much the respect has grown for this album.

We beat the LIVING SHIT outta "Stone Jam" back then, but it's been surprising how much more love this record seems to get from fans as years go on.

Last one with Washington on board, they made it count. Fucking great project...slams from wall to wall.

SLAVE WATCHING YOU LYRICS

Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you
Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you

Watching you
Watching you
Watching you
Watching you

Looking at the ladies, all of them fine
All of them so lovely, I can't make up my mind
But I'm lookin' at you from the corner of my eye
I can see you now, you're steppin' so high and I'm

Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (one look and I was hooked on you, baby, whoa)
Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (watching you)

Watching you
Watching you

There you go swayin', blowin' my mind
You've got everything groovin' in time
God gave her beauty, she carries it well
I'm staring at your heart, baby, hoping you can tell

Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (hope that you can tell that I'm watching you, love)
Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (with the naked eye, baby, whoa)

Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (you're far away, but I can still see you clearly, whoa)
Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (watching you)

Love at first sight
Ooh, baby, you're blowin' my mind
I just got to let you know
Energy flowin'
I said it feels so good
I gotta tell you my name is Stevie
What's yours, baby, whoa

Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (I'm watching you and only you, baby, whoa...ho...)
Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (you're blowin' my mind)

Gonna do a little dance for you

Watching you
Watching you

The girl looks just right to me, ha
Combination smile, body, physique, whoa, ho
All the ladies I've seen are really fine but
Baby, I'm watching you, you're right down my line

Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (oh....baby)
Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (ooh, you're right for me, you're right to the tee, baby)

Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you (what must I do to let you know I'm checkin' you)
Walking down the street watching ladies go by (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Watching you (whoa....ho...ho...yi, yi, yi)

Walking down the street watching ladies go by (whoa, whoa, ho)
Watching you (yi-yi-yi, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, oh, oh, oh)
Walking down the street watching ladies go by (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, oh, oh, oh)
Watching you (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)

Walking down the street watching ladies go by
Watching you
