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!

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.

Come On Jim 03:04
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.

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!

Sabina 02:39
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!

Mi Querida 04:25
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.

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.

POP! Aaaaah! I want you to know, When I get that sour taste that makes me screw up my face, I’m begging pleease I need a sugar lump, Like you honey bunch to pep me back up, Lemona Squeeze me! Oh honey how I want you to stay, Every time you come over to play, You know how to make that Lemonade taste so good for me, Its good to have you back in town And when you shake it up, I love to hear the lovely bubbly sound. Oh Lemonade!

The Ballad 04:33
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.

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.

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
