Tonight
Lyrics by Scott Crawford
Music by Scott Crawford and Kage Hopkins

it’s not always black or white
the difference is only slight
in a world that isn’t right
lick my fucking ass tonight

lick my fucking ass tonight
tonight
lick my fucking ass tonight, oh

darling, don’t put up a fight
I just want to take a bite
you make my whole world seem bright
lick my fucking ass tonight

lick my fucking ass tonight
tonight
lick my fucking ass tonight
in a world that isn’t right
lick my fucking ass tonight

on the loneliest of nights
maybe I am too uptight
you make my whole world seem bright
lick my fucking ass tonight

lick my fucking ass tonight
tonight
lick my fucking ass tonight
in a world that isn’t right
lick my, lick my, fucking ass tonight

lick it tonight
lick it tonight
lick it tonight
lick it tonight

About the song: this one sorta speaks for itself, and loudly, I might add, but I’ll give you a little backstory, nonetheless: back when I was in Murder In The Dark, Kage started playing the bassline of what became “Tonight” during practice one day, and I thought it sounded a bit like The Chameleons, so I laid down a drum track and, being a jackass, started singing the chorus you all know and love over the top of it in a sort of Mark Burgess voice (apologies to Birdy, who I hope will get a laugh out of the song if he ends up hearing it, at the very least). About 5 minutes of other ridiculous, improvised lyrics later, a legend was born. I’ve heard talk of it being played in foreign lands and enjoyed by people who have no idea at all about the context of the song, it was a live favorite at MITD gigs before it came with Kage and I in the divorce, and I still have people mentioning it to me, years later…”You did that ‘lick my ass’ song…that’s awesome!”, all of which is pretty cool. I’d feel kinda like an embittered one-hit wonder, if the song weren’t so goddamn funny.

Like I said, this song was co-written by Kage Hopkins, and he’s graciously decided to let me do whatever the hell I want with it, so if you decide to make a donation based solely on the virtues of this song, please note that in the “Note” section of the donation page, so I can kick him some of the money, and by all means, check out his shit, too.
