lyrics

I like the way you stand
I like the way you stand
Like you don’t need a man
I like the way you stand

I like the way you walk
I like the way you walk
Now there’s no need to talk babe
I like the way you walk

Why don’t you stand here baby by my side
Get in my car and we’ll go for a ride
Well I know that you’ve got something to hide
But baby I don’t mind

I like the way you dance
I like the way you dance
Tell me if I have a chance, babe
I like the way you dance

I like the way you kiss
I like the way you kiss
I don’t think you’ll even miss me, babe
I like the way you kiss

So why don’t you stand here baby by my side
Get in my car and we’ll go for a ride
Well I know that you've got something to hide
But baby I don’t mind....

But I hate the way you lie
I hate the way you lie, girl
Like you don’t have to try
I hate the way you lie

I hate the way you scheme
I hate the way you scheme
I was on your team, babe
I hate the way you scheme

Well you waited till you had my heart
And proceeded babe to tear it apart
Well you can break a man and call it art
Well baby aren’t you smart?

But I like the way you stand

Like the eerie call of their avian namesake, Whippoorwill's sound is hauntingly familiar: rock and roll with readily apparent traces of it's folk and blues ancestors. This trio seeks to prove that crashing drums, blistering guitar and raunchy bass are all you need to bring the house down. ... more
