They're Coming

They're coming when you're sleeping in your cozy bed inside.
They're coming here to get you somehow so there's nowhere you can hide.
You hear them when you're dreaming in the safety of your bed.
They're coming here to mess with all the crazy thoughts within your head.

CH: Oh, they're coming so get ready. You've got to be prepared.
They're coming so get used to it. Don't just sit there scared.
They're coming after you. They're coming next for me. So beware!

You stepped inside their secrets. Now they're coming to get paid.
They just want to see what you got to give so don't be so afraid.
They know you made some money on the making of your move
They just want to dip their hands inside the pocket of your grove. CH

BR: They're coming after midnight. They're coming through the floor.
They're coming after something sweet, then look for something more.
And if you stop to ask them why they coming here at all, they'll simply look at you and say, "Pay!" --That's all.
SOLO - BR

They come disguised as grizzly bears or snakes up in the trees.
They're coming for their piece of pie and leaving none for me.
I'm afraid I've gotta say that they're coming here today
So let's be clear they're coming here, so don't try to run away. CH - END

Man, I love this tune Marty! Your bass playing in this is fantastic! I cannot over emphasize how great a team that you and Dave make! His guitar in this is smokin' with some killer parts! Your vocal is also super! I always look forward to hitting the play button on your tunes! Thanks, T

Marty / Dave,
Funky stuff! I was certain it would be about zombies smile
Really, with minor lyric changes it could make a Halloween hit.

Excellent composition, bass playing and vocals. David's guitars are great! Crisp mix, listens very well. Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Marty & Dave,
Excellent funkadelic feel that makes all those warnings in the lyrics just another reason to dance.
A good band that veers into awesome when Dave lets rip; you guys sound great together!

The song may not be about much. But it sure has a class of its own. Excellent bass playing, and Dave's powerful (Michael Schenker style) guitar leads take it to another level.

Super song about....whatever you want it to be about.

Great bass and lovely playing throughout by Dave. Wonderful vocal and a fun lyric.

Excellent (as was the video).

Hi Marty and Dave,

This is what I wrote on your YouTube channel: Why you call this 'nothing'? A delicious funky song! And I thought it were a bunch of cats you were singing about. The lyrics fit perfectly how these hungry creatures behave. But I love them, and that's the same with your song. Very nice, with a gorgeous solo and dealing with nothing...

And I think I don't add more to it. You both did a great job, but that's what you always do. At least in my opinion.

Nice day,
Hans

Thanks, OM. I often compare Dave to Slowhand because he can play any style and make it sound better.

Haha. Thanks, Misha. The zombies were in the video --especially right at the very end. Ha! That reminds me of whenever someone approached the stage to ask for a song, I'd always say, "Oh, yeah, good one. We do that toward the end. Stick around."

Thanks, Dave. I realize I often give you songs that as you say are not in your wheelhouse, but the most fun ones are like these when we get to jam a bit.
