about

‘Sweet Spots’ bolts like a comet from the other side with the opening disco anthem ‘Ghost of Disco’, and sets off through lush calypso, dark mariachi and sweet doo-wop, to finally arrive at the garage soul of ‘Fresh Jaguar Meat’.

The album sees the Leopards joined by star-musicians Ros and Declan Jones on trumpets/trombone and Justin Marshall on percussion.

Like the closing chorus of 'Fresh Jaguar Meat' croons, the Leopards like to work damn hard and their music calls you to do the same out on the dance floor xx

Track Name: Ghost of Disco
Heart was deep in sorrows grip
Lost in psychedelic trippin'
Down these old streets of gold
Looking for tomorrow
Over where the shadows fall
Making shapes against the wall
It’s a ghostly dancing queen
I heard the voice of disco

Sweet sense I’m yours tonight for dancing, dancing
Take me up where coloured lights are dancing
Hear those strings it starts to move me
Its spooky but it really soothes me
If you’ve got dance in you then you’ve gotta let it out!

Let it out of your hips
Let it out of your wrists
And your fingertips..

It was doing moves I’d done before
Point to the sky, point to the floor
The roll, the hustle, and the shady skate
Getting hot, I got the fever
Hitting on me like a flower
I was shaking it like a piece of cake
From here until every star, but there is no mistaking

Even the one who broke your heart is dancing
Even your mama and your dad are dancing
Dancing something like the bus stop
Take your love, lock it and pop
This could be the move that’s gonna get you back on top
Like a cherry like a lover, icing sugar!

AAAAAGH

Ooh dancing! Hmmm dancing! Ooh dancing!
A bit of AAAHHG!

It’s spooky but it really moves me
Its an illusion but man it moves me
if you’ve got dance in you, then you’ve got to let it out!

Let it out of your hips
When you shake it like this
Shake it like sugar!
Track Name: Long Black Hair
5 bottles of the prettiest colours
In her hand, and that long black hair
Coming down
She moves across the beach to look out at the
Big water, with that long black hair
Coming down, coming down.
The sun in one and the moon in the air.

From dawn till dusk, she paints with a brush kneeling
On sea shells, with that long black hair
Coming down.
At night before dreams she sits in the mirror and
Combs out all of her long black hair
Coming down, coming down
Or where would she be without the other.

Cause ever changing is the wind
The waves go out, the tide don’t know where to begin
The gulls fly and the clouds go by
The fish jumps out of the sea, as if saying
You can’t catch me.

You can buy a picture from her brother or sister for just
Two dollars, with that long black hair
Coming down.
Longing to swim out to the horizon
At the end of her long black hair
Coming down, coming down
The sun in one and the moon in the air.

Shoobe-do-bedooo.

Five bottles of the prettiest the colours
In her hand, and that long black hair
Coming down
She paints the sky, paints the tree, paints the golden lace on the
Big water, with her long black hair
Coming down.
Track Name: Come On Jim
Been so long in the dark, fixing up this broken heart, but
Since you called, my rooms been bright.
In a new dress you’re going to take me out tonight.
Standing at the door, I tell you that I just can’t wait a minute more.

Come on Jim, come on Jim
Let me show you that I’m over him.
Come on, come on, I need a man,
To be a man and take my hand
Come on, come on lets just
Go where the lights are low,
It doesn’t matter what movie they show.

It could be a mystery, something based on history,
I wanna hold your hand even if its not scary.
I’m not afraid to dream when I look into your eyes and scheme,
We could do anything, don’t need this wedding ring - oh
I take it as a sign, since you’ve become such a very good friend of mine.

Come on Jim, come on Jim
Let me show you that I’m over him.
Come on, come on, I need a man,
To be a man and take my hand
Come on, come on lets just
Go spread the news
That it’s you that helped me lose these blues.

Ooooh come on, Oooohhh come on Jim
I’m waiting! I’m waiting for you!

Come on Jim, come on Jim
Let me show you that I’m over him.
Come on, come on, I need a man,
To be a man and take my hand
Come on, come on lets just
Go where the lights are low,
It doesn’t matter what movie they show.
Track Name: Shoop Shoop Carrie
If we go some place to talk before we get to the party let’s
Shoop shoop, Carrie
We could really get up to something, just think of all that blood pumping,
Shoop shoop Carrie
Nobody’s watching,
They’re all to busy looking
At the moon that’s turning blue!

Makes you feel so heavenly oh everything is so divine when you
Shoop Shoop Carrie
Easiest thing is just to start one leads into another, just
Shoop Shoop Carrie
Nobodies listening, they’re all too busy going
From their feet up to their knees!

SPOKEN:
Carrie don’t you ever feel the need to get away,
You’ve got to put your foot down and take a holiday.
Let your knees sway, this way, that way,
Squeeze your knees like you’re dancing for Beyoncé.
How many times have you counted to four?
Then you count one time and its just one more.
I don’t know the answer I’m just a dancer,
But when you’re living in a loop, sometimes you’ve got to shoop.
Shoop!

See you coming across the floor, I love you more than I ever have before oh
Shoop Shoop Carrie
When you’re dancing in the dark, singing like a morning lark oh
Shoop Shoop Carrie,
Shoop Shoop Carrie.

Shoop Shoop Carrie,
Shoop Shoop Carrie,
Shoop Shoop Carrie!
Track Name: Sabina
Sabina, Sabina
I still wake up missing
Something deep and its not sleep,
Its like a record that I heard I knew I never could keep.

Sabina, Sabina
Ever since I met you, I’ve been
A step ahead or a step behind
And you’re the only one I need to help me make up my mind.

Come on lets go see the great barrier reef,
When we sat on the steps we’ll always be sixteen
But now were on our way
To something beautiful!

Sabina, Sabina, Sabina.

Swimming in a temple,
With gold soaking in,
More than 7 wonders will surround you.
Remember when you put on your dress,
Did that little step and put your shoes on.

Sabina, Sabina
Wait till after midnight, there’s
Something sweet that you can’t eat
But if you get close enough sometimes you can see the heart beating
Oh!

Sabina!
Track Name: Mi Querida
Mi Querida, Mi Querida Mi Querida,
Oh hermanita!
Mi Querida, Mi Querida Mi Querida,
Oh hermanita!

No se puede tapar el sol con un dedo.
Porque naces un en horno, no queieres,
Decir no que eres,
Un barra de pan.
El mero mero petatero.

My darling, my darling little sister.
You can’t block out the sun with one finger,
Just because you’re born in an oven,
It doesn’t mean you’re a loaf of bread.
You’re the real big chief.
Track Name: Down This Lane
Even the poor little pigeons go two by two, they’re going
Oooh ah ooh
Down this lane and disappear from view, they’re going
Oooh ah ooh
And there’s so many different faces which belongs to who? It’s just
Oooh ah ooh
There’s a certain kind of walk that you’ve got to do, that goes
Oooh ah ooh

Down this lane, there’s something waiting
To take you tonight to the other side,
If you hear the sound of your feet on the ground
And your eyes light up and roll around,
‘Cause you know that something’s will never be the same,
Once you’ve done down this lane.

The moon is full and its feeling strong, its going
Oooh ah ooh
And he’s smoking a cigarette and its 6 feet long, its going
Oooh ah ooh
Because the time between night and day ain’t long, its just
Oooh ah ooh
And all the creatures in the trees are singing along, they’re going
Ooh ah ooh

Down this lane, there’s something waiting
To take you tonight to the other side,
If you hear the sound of your feet on the ground
And your eyes light up and roll around,
‘Cause you know that something’s will never be the same,
Once you’ve done down this lane.

Come on lets really..
Do it! Do it, do it, do it!

Down this lane, there’s something waiting
To take you tonight to the other side,
If you hear the sound oh who know where it goes?
But you follow your nose around,
Coz you know that something’s are never gonna change,
Once you go done down this lane.
Track Name: Lemonade

Sweet talking for a while,
All the way to the candy shop, lets

Track Name: The Ballad
You can’t make someone fall in love with you,
Either they do or they don’t.
Whatever you’re will or you’re wanting.
People are going to do,
Whatever they want to do, and
You can’t make someone fall in love with you.

You can buy a kiss, or build a dream,
Plant a seed under the apple tree.
Catch a dove and watch it fly over the sea.
You can win or lose a fortune,
Write something sweet upon the moon, but
You can’t make someone fall in love with you.

Biology, physics and chemistry, oh
I’ve got all this time and money
I want you to help me spend it honey because,
Your kiss sets me free, maybe its meant to be?
Come on and keep me!
Keep me from being lonely.

You can’t make someone fall in love with you,
Either they do or they don’t.
Whatever you’re will or you’re wanting.
People are going to do,
Whatever they want to do, to find
To find the foot that fits the shoe,
Chew the gum that makes the glue oh
You can’t make someone fall in love with you.
Track Name: Fresh Jaguar Meat
Oh! In the morning, I’ve just got to catch you early train.
I’m working through, and through, I’ve got it bad,
I want to be dancing in the summer rain.
I see you on the street
You’re looking reet petite and I know
I’ve just gotta make do.

You make me work damn hard,
Just to keep up with the beat,
My iddy biddy feet are set to slide
Up to your side just to keep you satisfied.
You make me work damn hard
Through the day and the night
Just to keep the love between you and me right,
I’m working through the day and all of the night.

All in this world I want to give
And you say it doesn’t matter -
Just make it expensive.
Make it shine, make it sing real fine and
Make sure you get it to me baby right on time.

You make me work damn hard,
Just to keep up with the beat,
My iddy biddy feet are set to slide
Up to your side just to keep you satisfied.
You make me work damn hard
Through the day and the night
Just to keep the love between you and me right,
I’m working through the day and all of the night.

I’m not crying its just sweat pouring from my eyes,
Its too much, baby you’re too much,
I’m going to be busy till the day I die
You’re gonna give me a heart attack
When you shake it like that,
But can’t you see, it ain’t too much for me.

You make me work damn hard,
Just to keep up with the beat,
My iddy biddy feet are set to slide
Up to your side just to keep you satisfied.
You make me work damn hard
Through the day and the night
Just to keep the love between you and me right,
I’m working through the day and all of the night.
