about

This song is a cover of a calypso song recorded by the great Wilmoth Houdini, originally called Uncle Joe Gimme Mo'. We love Bob Brozman's version. In our cover the melody is played by the banjo and we added a surf feeling with the drum beat to give more energy to the song. The banjo player is mixing his Turkish playing with the blues and calypso feeling of that song which creates a Turkish/Calypso/American track!

lyrics

"Uncle Joe"

Ah! Uncle Joe, ah! Uncle Joe
Give me more, give me more, give me more
Play that thing like you done before

Ah! Uncle Joe, ah! Uncle Joe
Give me more, give me more, give me more
Play that thing like you done before

All of the young girls started to sing
Some of them started to shake and that thing
Some of them throw themselves on the floor
Shouting Uncle Joe give me more, give me more

Ah! Uncle Joe, ah! Uncle Joe
Give me more, give me more, give me more
Play that thing like you done before

A fellow and his girlfriend came here last night
Himself and Uncle Joe nearly fight
For when he told his lover, "Come, go !"
She said I'm waiting for Uncle Joe.

Ah! Uncle Joe, ah! Uncle Joe
Give me more, give me more, give me more
Play that thing like you done before

Ah! Uncle Joe, ah! Uncle Joe
Give me more, give me more, give me more
Play that thing like you done before

Uncle Joe said i'm getting vexed
Coming here I surely regret
For all the young girls that shake up their thing
Cause me to bust up all of my strings

Ah! Uncle Joe, ah! Uncle Joe
Give me more, give me more, give me more
Play that thing like you done before

Ah! Uncle Joe, ah! Uncle Joe
Give me more, give me more, give me more
Play that thing like you done before
