Lyrics:
Em-C7-B7

I'm the Caliph of California
I am a thief and I should warn you
That I'm a dangerous maannnn
With a dangerous plan....!

I've got a Queen and I adorn her
With precious jewels from every corner
Well, she's a dangerous giiiiirl,
But it's a dangerous world.

[Bridge -- D-D7-G-G7-B7]

If you don't let us in
Our reign of terror will begin
My girl and I don't play
A hefty ransom you will to pay

[Instrumental]

If we don't get our way,
This wicked world will have to pay
And then my friend you'll see
The price of your hostility!

I'm the Caliph of California
And I believe that I should warn you
That I'm a dangerous maannnn
With a dangerous plan....

Well, I'm a dangerous maannnn
Yes, I'm a dangerous man....!

Well those are some cool lyrics Sho. But you need to not be so close to the mic perhaps put up a pop shield. Record your vocals separate from your music and I will mix and master them for ya.

nice. yes, these are no-fi recordings. Sadly, I am have virtually 0 technical acumen. But, with you on board, I may just be inspired to get a not-so-terrible version together. LOL. Thanks again, and have a great weekend, -Shoham

Ah, there is just something about an E to C transition. I am particularly fond of Emin7 to Cmaj7 myself but I digress..

Anyways, liking this WIP. Do you have a particular style you are thinking for the finished version?

I think something ala Paint it Black by the Stones with some gypsy sounding riffs here and there would go nicely with this core song structure.

Wow, wow, woah! Do I sense a collaboration in the making!?! I like this Paint It Black concept... I have to try this Emin to CMaj7 when I get in tonight. Again, sorry about the delay with your tune, I am looking forward to working on it, soon -- before the next moon? Sorry, I'm in a rhyming mood -- must be the change of weather... thank you, $shoham

haha I would'nt mind a collab but unfortunate the mac is currently on its way to the repair center as I think the motherboard crashed : /

Yea the Emin to Cmaj7 transition is used a lot, Pink Floyd's "Welcome to the Machine" comes to mind. It has a very eerie feel to it, but gentle at the same time

Hmmm... I tried it out, I'm still playing with it, but yes I know Welcome to the Machine. Good tune -- very Pink Floydy! It's all happening!!! -$Shoham

Haha yes I like a lot of major 7 chords. minor 9 chords are probably my second favorite. :D

I actually really like the dirty quality to this track. Gives the vibe that it is being played through an old phonograph. I think it really fits the somewhat ballad quality of the lyrics.

Thank you very much, Memmot. I don't know if you know this olde, but it fits your description and is part of the inspiration of this ditty! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofXvX5wtyY8

I have actually not heard this version, but only the Beatles cover! But I can definitely see the influence.

Yeah, I'm more used to the Beatles version, too. But the sound quality on this one is more similar to "The Caliph" ;) -$shoham
